6. I work with many PhDs from all over the country and can attest, some are quite "nutty". . .

they're socially awkward, don't relate well with people outside their area of study, and at times are quite ignorant of an astonishing range of topics. Within their field of study, however, they are -- as you'd expect -- quite knowledgeable and at times even brilliant. And some of them -- a select few -- are true renaissance individuals, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the world and insight into an incredible range of human endeavor.

Of course, this is rarely recognized by doddering old fools who host asinine television shows.
