I have got to call you out on this post.

1st Anyone who would put the time in to get a Ph.D would know how to write it correctly.

2nd Your past posts show "You Are Not Smarter Than A Fifth Grader"

All a degree really tells you about someone is where they were for those 2 or 4 (maybe more) years.

I was once told that your degree should be hung on the bathroom wall in case the toilet paper runs out.

I think it means a little more then that...although very funny!

Someone without a degree who wishes they had one, came up with that I think!

Granted the paper itself doesn't mean much...and maybe that is what you mean. But what I learned in my 4 years at college was VERY IMPORTANT,and I would not give it up for anything! It would have taken me a whole lifetime to learn what I picked up there and I am STILL learning everyday.

So I think it definitly helps alot!
