Another Spectrum

Personal ramblings and rants of a somewhat twisted mind

Believe the Internet


I’ve always known the Internet to be a rich and accurate source of information. Today it revealed something that I wasn’t aware of, or had forgotten:

I have a PhD in history.

I don’t actually recall studying for it, but according to this test, my 100% correct result came about because of my education level; that being the said PhD. As more than half the questions were about American history, I presume my thesis was related to that, or perhaps I studied in an American university. I have no recollection of either, but a perfect score is unequivocal evidence of my great intellect.

Now where did I put my certificate and my thesis?

  1. Are you sure you are you?

  2. Doctor Barry, we studied together for five minutes in Macdonald’s. How could you forget?

    • I’ve been into a Macdonalds only once in my life and that was when my wife was pregnant and had a craving for junk food, so it couldn’t be there. Perhaps it was while waiting for a Hell Pizza. If I’d ordered it in store instead of online then I would have a whole 10 minutes to not only study but research and complete my thesis.
