Funny you mention anthropology. Because of a conversation I had over breakfast with some coworkers, word has started to get around that I majored in Anthropology. I've had a couple people comment on it in a way that seems they're bumping me up a click on their prestige scale. The manager of the network infrastructure team used to rag on me for being "fruity" -- because I administer the Apple Macs, get it? -- but now he seems to look at me different. Are people really so shallow?
"I wish I had documented more…" said nobody on their death bed, ever.
