Obviously a ploy by females to make it seem they don't take over men's lives completely after state approved civil unions...

Wow. Been a while since I was last here. Getting a PhD sure takes time and energy...

Yup. And the four years before have been good. I've friends who are working a lot more for theirs. It was just the last months that were tough.

The first guess was quite good. Nuclear engineering. Or more specifically: Neutronics in reactors with propagating perturbations.

Looks fairly impressive. I'll have a closer look later; I'm interested in the differences between MSRs and other systems.

Dr. philos (Ph.D) is one of the four doctorates in the classic university disciplines. The others are Dr. theol. (theology), Dr. juris (law) og Dr. med. (medicine). So even physics, chemistry and the like are fitted into the "philosophical" degree.

You do it that way in Sweden too, I presume, GC?

Not really. I'm actually a "Doctor of technology", but that title doesn't really exist in English, so it's translated to PhD.
