Aggressive thinking

The onion is trying to satirize certain types of jobs by playing on people’s vague ideas about what they are. Do think tank employees really think? in a tank? All day?

The funny thing about this satirical article is that it accurately describes my days as a philosopher. I am supposed to be thinking all the time, and sometimes I have a bad day, just like an athlete plays a bad game.

One newspaper’s absurd caricature of knowledge professions is another person’s daily reality (namely, mine).
