In the India I was growing up in, history wasn't really a wise career option. People would joke and say, 'History's okay, but what's your actual job?' I didn't come from a privileged background and couldn't afford to be irresponsible, so I did the pragmatic thing and did a MBA.
If somebody is not on the same page with me humor wise, I can't give them that.

Karl G. Maeser
Zeal is fit for wise men, but flourishes chiefly among fools.
