Portrait of a mad scientist

A few days ago, I had to write a short autobiography for one of the engineering papers I was writing for work. Of course I mentioned my advanced degree, an M.S. in mathematics. M.S. stands for Master of Science. I kind of like the sound of that. I wish we expanded that abbreviation more often. Think about it: I’m a Master of Science!

I almost feel like I should be practicing my villain laugh or something. I’m a Master of Science! Bwa-ha-ha!

Even better, that’s not just a title I made up for myself. I earned it! I even have a piece of paper proclaiming (in calligraphy no less) my Mastery of Science!
