Doctor

August 20th, 2011 by Potato

The appellation of “Doctor” (from Latin: teacher) indicated a life dedicated to learning, to knowledge, and to the spread of knowledge.

And now I am one.

    Congrats Potato, or should I say, Dr. Potato PhD!!! I wish I could have watched the lecture yesterday, but work, as usual, got in the way of life.

    […] Everyone head over and congratulate Holy Potato on getting his doctorate. Even though he’s clearly not a medical doctor, I will still hit him up for free medical advice. Hey, what do you think this rash is? […]

    Thanks guys!

    Wayfare got me a handy T-Shirt to answer the inevitable doctor-physician mix-ups.

    Netbug: you know what my field of research is. Would you still like to arouse my curiosity about pain? :)

    I have a Master’s degree in Computer Engineering. I’ll call you “Doctor” if you call me “Master”.

  8. Potato Says:

    It is a little too bad that, aside from the MSc/M** after the name, there’s no honorific for those with master’s degrees.
