...with masters classes in clown theatre...

On second thoughts, mentioning WAD, DaveTard or the DI here would be just too easy.

Well, yes.  While WAD does many things poorly, I think he does "street theatre" worse than anything he's "tried".  This, of course, might have something to do with the fact that he's not really doing any theatre--street or otherwise.

BA - Theatre performance

with masters classes in clown theatre, juggling, mime, and stilt-walking.

This makes me qualified to drink beer, throw knives, and live in a cardboard box (simultaneously, though--that's the skill part).

I always thought an unemployed mime would live on the streets in a glass box.

My own background is a B.S. in cell biology and biochemistry, UCSD.
Currently working toward an MSc/MA in molecular cell biology and vocal performance (opera singing) at the University of Kansas.

The same holds for Canada.

The poll leaves those of us with a degree in the sciences and a degree in the humanities only half there.

I went to tech school where they gave me a MS in Marine Science -kind of a cross between marine biology and environmental science. Times have changed.

But my education was in the 60s/70's with a BFA/BA Ceramics/Political Science and all the nessessary chemistry to make that happen. Didn't want to go to war man :).

And I learned everything I really needed to know in kindergarten.   :)

When I was a student at Bangor, Wales, they awarded a degree of Bachelor of Forestry. One former student asked them to change it to B.Sc. as he did not like having the letters BF after his name. The Registrar wrote back saying he quite saw the point, but felt that in the case of that particular student BF was more appropriate. At least, that was the story.

hrmph.

Two years of HS at a hoity toity private school.  Transferred to a not-so-great public school system,  put in three months of hell,  and "home schooled".  I'd use the word autodidact, but it's been tainted by tard.

Talked my way into an early admission to the local U, finished two years (no degree) and left school.  Anyone care to talk about the insane costs of education these days?

Depending on the rhetorical needs of a given argument I can have,   "dropped out of HS - so if I can get this concept, you with your college education shouldn't have any problem" ,  or "studied that a little bit in college,  but didn't really get into depth with it."

I answered the poll "High School".

What is a BCL? I'm not familiar with British jurisprudence and Law studies, and what I do know is based on reading way too much Dickens, in Spanish translation, as a 12 year old. I see you are a solicitor; what kind of practice do you have? As a solicitor, do you deal with criminal matters? And what do solicitors drink?

I'm an attorney in the U.S., so I voted as Phd, humanities, like steviepinhead.

I'm starting to rethink that. Even if it's technically a "Juris Doctor" degree, it's only four years, no dissertation or anything like that.

Then again, the concept of elevating form over substance is not entirely alien to me.
