I have long thought that the smarter someone becomes, the more disconnected they become with real life. Folks that have PhD’s are at the pinnacle of this. Why use common sense when you can hide behinds the mask of ‘I am really smart and it doesn’t matter two hoots what you think’ idea.

PhD’s may have lots of knowledge, but they tend to be a little short in the ‘real world’. They have the social skills of a Cave Man!

Talking to one is rather like banging your head against a brick wall. They will hit you with theories and more math than the average person can handle, and espouse some idiot idea that only a mother could love.

I have no problem with experts in any field, but PhD’s just seem to be unreasonable. They are locked into some subject that no one with an ounce of sense could care about. The only string theory I buy into is that if you put string in a draw (or wires) they manage to get tangled up.

I have a particular love for PhD’s that just ignore science. Why let fact get in the way of theory? Alas the ‘Flat Earth’ idea has been debunked. It is a shame, I found the Flat Earth concept quite interesting. I also was a fan of the Earth being the center of the universe. With the earth being the center of activity and life, the internet folks could have added .Mars .Jupiter, and even .Pluto to the lofty word of Top Level Domains.

Of course it has become clear that the Earth is not the center of the universe, when the UFO’S come all of our web site names will change uww.smallsolarsystem. smallbluegreenplanet.earth.yahoo.com. UWW obviously standing for Universe Wide Web!

The good news is that the aliens have yet to implement this naming convention.

So, on a more important subject than the possibility of having to rename our web sites, lets talk about Global Warming.

One mans science is another mans BUNK. I have to admit that I am a fan of data. Playing with data is right up there with the very best Lego Bricks. By using the bricks in the right order, you can create almost anything. You can get a PhD in Lego, I think they call it Statistics. Given a set of bricks, you can prove that White ones are better than Red ones. PhD’s can predict such unlikely facts as how amputees might vote. Lose a right leg, you are republican, a left leg, a democrat.

Obviously I am joking. But it rings true. You give a data set to a person that has absolutely no real world sense, tell them the desired result, and voila!

Without doubt my absolute favorite of the week came from a Pudding head DoughBall (PhD), quite how this numbskull even manages to pull his pants up everyday is beyond me.

That data set says..

The graph you just looked at comes with the warning… Dr. Not Quite With It, points out that that the data is bunk. When viewed in a larger context the data set being used is just junk! Dr Not Quite With Reality, questions us poor mortals.

The PhD points out that we are all screwed up.

Note that it is calibrated in ‘tenths of a degree Celsius, and even that tiny amount of warming started long before the  late 20th century. The horizontal line is totally arbitrary, just a visual trick. The whole graph would be a horizontal line if it were calibrated in whole degrees— Thus showing ZERO warming.

Using this same stupid logic it would be easy to prove that the price of gasoline has not changed in the last 100 years. If we set the price per gallon at lets say $100 we will get the same flat line. We of course know that this would not be reflective of the real world, but what the hell to PhD’s know about the real world?

I like to call out stupid when I see it. And this is patently stupid!

I won’t bother to name Dr. Stupid,because there are so many of them.
