Sometimes it’s just this easy

Arrogant douchenozzle:

Why do so many Quorans look down on Liberal Arts and Humanities degrees? Do they not realize that STEM degrees do nothing to cultivate the mind? Do they not realize that STEM graduates (i.e., automatons) contribute nothing to culture or civilization?

How to deal with an arrogant douchenozzle:

No, I don’t want fries with that, but thank you for asking.

I’ll probably get a nastygram for that. Ask me if I give a flying fish.

    I could suggest Aleksander Borodin, a research chemist who also composed. Or Danica McKellar, an actress with a math degree. Or, heck, Brian May….astrophysicist and member of one of the best rock bands ever.

    Not that this troll is owed any example or explanation.

    There’s also my personal favorite, Beatrix Potter, but I don’t think she actually had a degree in science.

    And even absent all that: the tablet or whatever the dude wrote his post on and the internet he sent it to wouldn’t exist without us worthless STEM types.

    Nothing to civilization except, y’know, how to build it. Yeesh.

    There I go, agreeing with McGehee again.
    Still, Albert Schweitzer was the first person to come mind as a repudiation of that (lack of) thought.
