    All the polls said Bush would lose his second term. So much for those polls. Considering that was an easily measurable thing, I'd say social phenomena polls are even less accurate, especially considering half the editors/authors are likely single degreed women (lol).
    You're comparing polls that PREDICT an event to polls that REPORT a reality. That's a false comparison. Your question has been answered. Deal with it.

    All I know is I think it is likely I would be bored to tears, or she would be bored to tears, if we were educationally out of sync.

    I am boring. Instead of a murder mystery, I read books on bureaucracies. I'm so boring, if they were stuck in a room with me, I would make most folks nap within ten minutes flat.

    I had a roommate who read the phone book. It was really weird. But it wasn't a big deal either because it meant I didn't have to worry much about loud parties or sports games going on all the time. I could do my thing as well and not have someone complain about it, such as putting puzzles together. We worked well as roommates.

    And I can see women who just want to do their own thing much of the time being quite fine with having a husband that liked to read technical or legal or history books or books on bureaucracies. Especially if you didn't expect her to discuss them with you all the time. And hopefully that isn't your only interest.

    I was mostly joking around. Gipper likes to take a few stabs now and then. Yes, I have many other interests, but my reading material and the things I really concentrate on are technical and boring to many folks

    I know. I just think there are also plenty of women out there who like boring things as well. Or men, if that's your thing.

    Me? Stabs? Never.

    There's also the Wolowitz factor at play here. On TBBT, all the PhDs rank on Howard for "only" having a Masters. Gotta stick up for my MBA.

    Graduate school is mostly research for business degrees.

    Apologies for dragging us further off topic, but no, they didn't.
