Do yall even remember me
Of course we remember you! It would be kinda hard to forget after all the fun we had. I still remember when I first came to the site, and you thought I was alt of type1. Ah, good days.

Intelligence_06 - This guy probably had best grades in class, especially at math and all the logic stuff. He is the king of semantics on this site and will punish every error in topic making and definitions with most severe logical destruction. He is not so much making arguments as much as he is using pure math in debate, and he treats all claims like math equations. His powers are indeed scary, and he probably influenced many debaters on the site to copy some of his style, as it is a unique style which happens to be also very good and puts all debaters on extra alert.

Its hard to make them all good, and I am not exactly an expert at comedy.

LMAO. So back in 8th or 9th I only knew I was somewhat good at manipulating logic and I didn't realize that could translate into mathematics, so I was gonna fix myself to becoming a pre-law in college and then law school & lawyer, etc. 

Needless to say, I think, at least for now, being a physicist / engineer is more fun.

Not philosophy? Since you're in a debate site, I thought you'd be more inclined to taking stuff like Moral Philosophy.

I was well informed of the lack of job prospect for a philosophy major the first time I voiced such interest to my parents back in 6th grade.

Sadly, this is still the case.

I wouldnt pick school based on jobs it can give.

I picked a school based on the job it could give me, instead of the one I wanted, because my parents convinced me that the one I wanted wont give me a job.

Now I do a job which is completely irrelevant to the school I went to, which I could have had even if I didnt go to school, and I missed to get education which actually interested me.

Of course, the school which was supposed to "give me a job" ended up being terribly boring, causing me to fail completely at school and when I finished school with minimal success and lowest possible grades which still let you pass, I didnt have knowledge nor interest to do any of the jobs the school actually "educated" me for.

So if you want to go to school for a certain job, first ask yourself if you will have the knowledge and interest to do that job for the rest of your life.

My answer to both was no, but sadly, I didnt think about it well enough when I started school, and I was terribly misinformed by my own parents about what the school actually teaches. By the time I realized, years already passed and it was impossible for me to switch to other school.

I am not giving you advice. I dont know your situation. But lets just say that some people who dream of specific jobs while students dont get to do those jobs. My entire education was literally completely irrelevant to the job I do.

I am grown a passion of physics now so thank you, there is nothing to worry about now.

"While the starting salary is near the middle of all majors, the average mid-career salary of philosophy majors quickly rises to $81,200.00, outperforming Finance, International Relations, Marketing, Business Management, Communications, Nursing, Biology, Health Care Administration, and many others."

Can't go back to 3.5 years ago, but hope it pays well in the future.

I can confirm that taking a philosophy major is akin to playing roulette with your career aspirations.

At least it ain't an eventual dead end like CS.
