And Shaded forgot to ask a question, again.

Why do you forget to ask questions Shaded?

Because now you should understand the material enough for the teacher to give you assignments that cover what the course was trying to teach you.

Do you really understand the material, I mean really?

NO
ABSOLUTELY NOT
But I'd pay gold to speak with someone who really understod Heidegger

To be Diogenes or to be Diogenes, is it really a dilemma?

Not sure, haven't taken any philosophy classes yet.

Why do people (who aren't already rich) major in Philosophy?

Because Academia generally doesn't adhere to the "University as a product/service" model that it's been forced to in the modern economy.

Why did I major in a highly selective and hard to break into field?

Because you were fooled by academia and pop culture to think that it was going to be better.

Why doesn't modern education properly prepare students for work?

I mean, I feel like I was prepared for work. I just picked very specific work. Only took me a whole year to get a job after graduating :P

Why did the modern economy become so brutal towards people without highly specific domain knowledge and experience that could be taught on the job in like a week?

Because in most jobs you either fill a basic menial job, or one which requires special knowledge.

When was the economy NOT like that?

Three weeks from Tuesday.

Why do science fiction universes ever show the robot overlords caring for humanity like grown children care for their doddering old parents?

I'm pretty sure that the Matrix did that.

What went wrong in the Matrix series?

It tried to explain its own lore. That cannon lore is never be as cool as the lore the viewer will imagine for it, especially when the first installment had a complete narrative arc that left the viewer at a satisfying conclusion.

How did the Marvel movies avoid this trap?

It drew from​established lore in the comic's which was heavily entrenched in the psyche's of it's fanbase.  Along with the teasers at the endings which link them all together.

How often are derailed threads actually banished to the Pit?
