      A non-science PhD still makes you a Doctor, a level of even mediocre intelligence that thankfully you will never aspire to.

      The term doctor predates medical doctors or universities & referred to a particularly learned person.

      Hi Anne, no you can drop in and out as you wish. There’ll be some exhibitions on campus to see also if you want to check them out. Thanks for asking, Conor

        That’s great, thanks a mill Conor!

        If I come long around lunch time- I’m not much of an early bird myself – and I say, well Conor on the internets said I could come along anytime, I hope they won’t be saying, who the fupp is Conor, get lost :)

    Personally I don’t think 3 primary degrees should result in somebody being called Dr (as in a medical Dr).
    Dr Mulvagh is a bit of alright. He can talk about the rising any day to me (on a 1:1). He’s not as hot as Dr Mercille, but he’s got my attention, all the same. Rising, did someone say rising?

      I have a PhD and am a Dr, the non-medical kind. Personally, that doesn’t stop me using my title to get into cardiac units and perform open heart surgery all the time because people are idiots who confuse the two titles, and therefore the underlying qualifications all the time. I also have the newest model of Benz and my pick of the nurses.

      I’m 2/2 at the moment on dead patients but hey, I’m a Dr right?
