Anthony Gottlieb explains philosophy:

There was once a website on which academic philosophers listed the curious things that strangers had said to them upon learning that they were in the presence of a philosopher. The following conversation allegedly took place on an aeroplane:

“May I ask you a question?”
“Yes.”
“It’s a philosophical question. Is that ok?”
“Sure.”
“There’s a boy I fancy. Should I text him or e-mail him?”

A) The answer is e-mail. My personal rule of thumb is never to date anyone who makes plans via text.

B) This reminds me, I should probably read some Hume this summer.
