← Myth-Making: Say It Often, People Will Believe

You won't ever see a job posting for a philosopher but that doesn't mean they aren't out there. You may spot one serving you food, teaching English in Korea or planting trees in the Great White North. Where ever you find them, the life of the philosopher is much like that of the artist... a dream.

That is, until today. For the first time in history, a philosopher has actually managed to accomplish something in the real world.

Now, that was a joke but here is the problem. I'm not sure which is the myth. Philosophers are glorified waiters or philosophers actually do stuff.
