    As someone with a degree in physics who ended up in an engineering role, I approve of this meme.

        Astronomy is one of the many tools of the devil.

        Applied physics is a thing. Lots of jobs there. Geophysics, biophysics, engineering physics (yes, that’s a thing…)

          I used my particle physics and knowledge of quantum topology to hybridise a new species of drought-resistant pineapple just the other day. It’s that easy!

            Okay. Good luck having anything from modernity without physics then. Especially your plumbing.

              Well, we did have plenty of engineered items before having the proper physics theory to explain what was happening. Physics does a whole lot more than simply enabling engineering to do more. It’s the basis of our understanding of the universe.

              Oh, I do my plumbing based on political science. But that’s not especially modern. The real genius is using music theory to run my email server. I’m setting self-hosted jazz on a saxophone next weekend.
