So you think your PhD is a waste of time

This guy Frobisher goes the Arctic to find the Northwest passage and totally fails, but he finds some rocks that he thinks may have coal or gold or something in them. So he brings them back to good old England and somebody tells him they do indeed have gold in them, so he goes back to the Arctic and fills his ships up with rocks. But when he gets back to England, he finds out actually somebody lied and they’re just fucking rocks. All they’re good for is fixing manor walls and shit.

Also he got shot in the ass with an arrow by the Inuit.

Excuse me sir you appear to be trespassing lost let me help you find your way home with my arrow.

When all your data is worthless, remember that your ventures could be considerably more painful and pointless than this journey of Sir Martin Frobisher.

  1. Many of the dangerous and pointless things I’ve done in my life have produced only cool stories, sort of like Sir Martin.

    Perhaps that is enough. However, it’s better when someone else pays for it. Much better.
