On the Master of Philosophy

Here's news. Sis continued her studies as she wished. She was accepted as a master student cum research assistant to this professor in some Mathematics department whatever. The last I heard, she said she needed to go out doing field trip and what nots. Ugh... Maths. I never liked anyways.

So it was the darnest conversation little brother told us between him and his friends.

His friends: Whoa, so your sister is a master student!
Brother: Yeah.
His friends: Master in what?
Brother: Philosophy.
His friends: NO KIDDING!
Brother: That's what it's called. Master of Philosophy.
His friends: Man, your family is so philosophi-cal. Like, everyone in your family can become philosopher. Imagine, Homer, Socrates... And all the Bongs.

Apparently, if I were him, I would be playing along too. Like, com'on, who talkes about doing Master of Philosophy right?

Sis: But it is called Master of Philosophy! In the field of applied Maths. That's what it is.
Dad: But no one ever talked about Master of Philosophy.
Sis: Whatever lah. Philosphy it is then. I'm a philosopher. I will write you a 300 pages book on why 1+1 is equal to 2.


Uhuh... Skip the crap, and tell me the answer straight. LOL. Or rather, give me Hermoine Granger, I won't need any philosophy then.

Two different things altogether I know. But what the heck. I can say the darnest thing as well.

It is true that some of the greatest mathematicians are also philosophers and vice versa.
