I wonder how many Finns die a year from post graduation stab wounds. Only Stabbing related image I have.
User avatar #138 to #105 - newsuperyoshi (10/21/2013) [-]
I think the idea's so they can settle fights like gentlemen and duel it with saber.
User avatar #139 to #105 - mythicalmayhem **User deleted account** (10/21/2013) [-]
Probably very few considering the people doing the stabbing are doctors
User avatar #144 to #139 - cormy (10/21/2013) [-]
Or quite a few considering the people doing the stabbing are doctors.
User avatar #145 to #144 - mythicalmayhem **User deleted account** (10/21/2013) [-]
Touche. But maybe they'll do no stabbing because they're smart enough to know they'll get caught
User avatar #146 to #145 - mythicalmayhem **User deleted account** (10/21/2013) [-]
Then again they could be smart enough to not get caught as well
User avatar #148 to #146 - cormy (10/21/2013) [-]
Considering it is a PhD, meaning and Philosophical Doctorate, chances are they aren't that smart, it'll just be up to how ******** insane they are. Either they'll be under the philosophy of doing absolutely nothing or go all or nothing and murder with the glorious weapon they were given.
User avatar #149 to #148 - mythicalmayhem **User deleted account** (10/21/2013) [-]
Then again maybe some of them will be smart and realize what the " ******** insane" ones are doing and (considering they too have swords) become vigilante's whose only goals are to stop the insane doctors.

Really there quite a number of ways things could happen in this situation but considering a doctorate takes around eight years to acquire I don't think they'd want to throw all that hard work down the drain. Then again eight years of college is enough to drive any man insane

So... What you're saying... Is that we need a movie that features a scene that play this out because it'll be hilarious and confusing and awesome.
TEAM DEATHMATCH!

In the US, when you get a PhD, you just get crippling debt and a horrible employment rate.
#17 to #12 - smbiosis (10/20/2013) [-]
Akshully, nearly all Ph.D. programs pay you as a part of the program (it's a small stipend, but still...)
#75 to #17 - asdzx (10/20/2013) [-]
This. They usually waive your tuition as well.
User avatar #24 to #12 - butwhynot (10/20/2013) [-]
Actually, much like a major, this greatly depends on what field you got your PhD in.
#61 to #12 - yeahbuddyforever (10/20/2013) [-]
my sister got hers, and instantly got a high paying job, it just depends on what coast your on
User avatar #52 to #12 - dairybun (10/20/2013) [-]
I was under the impression that you all got eagles with your PhD, is that not why it's your countrys mascot? You're not as cool as I thought
