continuing the debate that would run till the end of time, if it wasnt for the fact that soon someone will realise Classics is pointless and stop teaching it!
1 – It is just a way for people who couldnt cope with a real history degree to get into university!
2 – You have to learn Latin and/or Ancient Greek… why dont i just slit my wrists now!?
3 – They realised it was so pointless a subject they had to start making up stories to tell to drag it out for a whole 3yrs!
4 – My best estimate suggests within 5yrs every classical pot will be dug up so their will be no use for people who are trained to dig them up!
5 – You spend all your time looking at people who are dead and discussing things they said that even science in the middle ages proved was wrong!
6 – In psychology we have videos and photos, in classics u have 2D sketches and statues without arms!
7 – I can't think of anyone who could inspire me less in lectures than a person who has devoted their entire life, and even gained a pHD, in the study of pots and mythological stories!
8 – You have to rely on other better subjects like Psychology to put your subject to use, Oedipus Complex.
9 – You have to translate whole stories from one language to another, only to be bored shitless by them!
10 – You will never be able to do the subject properly as it requires full translations of all of Plato and Aristotle… and even a classics student must have better things to do with their life than that!!!
