Just Because You Have a Higher Education

My sister-in-law, who is a professor at the U of Nebraska was home for Easter. She showed pictures of my new baby chicks to the people in her lab. Obviously one of Gloria's employees isn't familar with poultry or baby eagles. At least she didn't think they were ducks.

Many years ago, my uncle who in fact did have a Phd, said " don't always be impressed with letters after one's name, it just might stand for Piled Higher and Deeper".

I do have a Ph.D. and I knew right away they aren't ducks but nothing is obvious about one of Gloria's employees...? What am I missing here?

Bio Medical Engineers. Crystal heads. My sister-in-laws employees and associates don't always have the culture of growing up with something other then a cat though when my husband was in Grass Valley, CA there were plenty of chickens and other thnings.

I don't have a Ph.D. and I too knew they were not ducks.

I do know that if one wants to see baby chicks all you have to do is go to Tractor Supply as it is the right time of the season for them to have them for sale in the store.

As I do not have a Ph.D., I must be educated instead of highly schooled because According to the Guinness Book of World Records under "Highest IQ", is Marilyn vos Savant, the lady that has column in Sundays Parade Magazine, and she says you get schooling when you go to school and education when you get out.

So what did the employee do or say? That's what I don't follow from what you said and your picture. I'm missing something.

Bobbie, I think we're all missing something here.

They're not ducks, they were baby chicks and then baby eagles got thrown in the mix.

One can get a PhD in chick rearing?

Can I have one too? I have saved many tokens from the top of corn flake packets, if that is sufficient.

But the point is that the chickens have a spot in your trailer so you can have fresh eggs for breakfast when out camping, right?

I have a Ph.D. I knew that they were chicks. The two facts have nothing to do with each other. I grew up on a farm where we raised chickens.

Oh, wait, I guess that they do have something to do with each other. I stayed with my mother on the farm a couple of summers to go to classes in Iowa City for my Ph.D.

Hi:Cyndi B... I hold a PhD...in Post hole Digging. I often say "You go to University to learn how", then "College to learn how to"!!! The longer my children stayed in post graduate studies...the smarter I became!
Now you really have to know your stuff...to be able to tell if the chicks are all the same gender!!!

I have a MA andI once had a grad school prof say, regarding degrees, "everybody knows what BS is, MS is more of the same, and PhD is piled higher and deeper." He also said that a PhD was a reward for not quitting. Since I'm long retired, my two degrees are now just pieces of paper that I'm proud of but don't brag about (anymore).

After some consideration, I conclude, one of Gloria's employees though the chicks were baby eagles.

It is also my considered opinion, once out of one's field of expertise/experience, we may not know what we speak. No matter the amount of or lack of a formal education.

Is that a bottle of Worcestershire sauce I see through the side of the box?
Maybe that's a clue!

Francesca, also mystified
