My "Unusual Experience"

C.H.L. George writes that "Studying for a Ph.D is a bit like teaching English abroad, working on an oil rig or being in the merchant navy. It is an unusual experience that does change the way that people think and behave. " Hmm. Well, I've done a Master's Thesis (which I tried to treat like a dissertation) and was in the U.S. Merchant Marine for a few years. What does that say about the way I "think and behave"? (via PTDR)
