Like it or love it, most of us have to work for a living. This is the place to commiserate with other cube-dwellers and get tips from other business travelers. Talk about how the daily grind will one day allow you to realize your vagabond dreams. Share tips for turning travel you have to do into travel you want to do.

Why do people choose (semi) useless majors in college?

The schools need to create a balanced and difficult curriculum that exposes kids to many different disciplines. Yes, that means Calculus, chemistry, theology, physics, in depth history/political science classes, literature, etc.


No, no, no. If you WANT that sort of education, then you choose that sort of degree. In Australia, if you do a Bachelor of Engineering, then all your subjects will be engineering, maths, physics type subjects (except I believe most degrees would require a communication/writing subject in the first year). What is the point in an engineering student doing liberal arts subjects? They're there to learn how to be an engineer. In most universities in Australia, Arts students do not need to take maths subjects unless they choose to, either.
