I'm sort of curious and have been meaning to delve into this for a while.

If you want to, and I'm sure others would be interested, post your level of education, degree and/or major/specialty.

If you don't wanna answer, that's cool.

As of right now, Certified Nurses Aide and Certified Medical Administrative Assistant. Will be going for a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and possibly a Master's down the road.

The irony here is if I'm the most educated and the starter of the most retarded threads.

Formally educated, I'd say.:egypt:

I realized that I forgot to answer.

BS in Political Science but have a lot of Job training dealing with emergency situations and Critical Incident Management, etc.

I gots high school degree. I tried going to college, but it cost a lot and was lame. Folks started offering to pay me to do what I love, so I chose that path.

Like Nuclear Power plants?

Yeah. Took a 400 level class in nuclear power along with classes in internal combustion engines, renewable energy. etc... Thermodynamics and heat transfer were my big areas of expertise in college. That was pretty interesting stuff but I ended up getting into the software testing field. It's way more fun to play with avionics than it is modeling thermal systems and whatnot.

Not irony--that is either happenstance or just coincidence.

People misuse the word irony all the time--I'm guilty of it myself.

Just like how people misuse the words "could care less" when the actual phrase should be "couldn't care less."

I've also noticed that all of the sudden people are really overusing the word LITERALLY, at least around me. People are using "literally" when they're already descibing literal things. Here is an example of what I mean:

"Literally, I was literally going 5 mph behind this guy."

See, used twice and not necessary either time.

Should have been an English major.

Actually, I think this is the correct use if "irony". Something is ironic if is the opposite of what would be expected. BMF is highly educated so the expectation would be that his posts would be about cells and mitosis and shit. However since most of his posts are self-described as "retarded" that would be ironic based on the expectations of someone with his education.

BS in Geography... isn't that redundant??

LOL--yes and no. This is an old professor of mine, and I think it's complete Bull Shit that he gets paid to teach this nonsense:

UT Geography and The Environment

On the other hand, this is what I studied: Satellite remote sensing, cartography and aerial photo interpretation. The Landsat Program - Images

I had entire classes where we ID'd jet fighters on runways in Cuba and measured airstrips from black and white spy satellite photos. :cool:

Up in the air on this one. It is pretty loose.

Irony is usually conveyed in the literal since in either bad or opposites based on chracters expectations.

MacBeth murders the King to become the king and the IRONY of it is that he is himself killed for killing the king. That is dramatic Irony. Also, dramatic irony is when the audience knows something that the characters in the drama don't.

Here is a good example, compliments of George Carlin:

If you're a diabetic and you get hit and killed by an Inulin delivery truck, this is just coincidence, not irony. It is irony if you are diabetic and the insulin truck hits and kills you WHILE on your way to get more insulin.

I just avoid using the term the same way I avoid using apostrophes and trying to spell "definitely". Some things I will never master...
