There is the anathema of polite conversation and that would be religious studies in combination with politics and law.
Law is one of those things which seems to require an eidetic memory for written language on subjects otherwise uninteresting, but it does make for upper level management material in the corporate sector, the majority of which tend to have a law degree and some philosophy just from my observations.
hahaha true about religious 'studies'
yeah i'm actually pretty good with policy, have done a few crossover law/pol subjects and I didn't mind them, and did very well at them, but in terms of a politics/philosophy degree making me a good candidate for a job which is pretty much entirely based on policy i doubt i would be very appealing.. I would be really good at it, but politics, and policy is like law/marketting area imo, they want it to look good, not to mean anything

I recently heard someone mention that the problem with todays politics, at least in this country, is the career politicians. I totally agree.
A career politician just doesn't have enough business experience to do their job as well as they could, as opposed to those who have worked in the public/private sectors for a decade or two and then gone into politics.
Say you start as an aide in your mid 20s, work in politics for 25 years and then end up as minister for finance in your late 40s. How the fuck do you have any financial experience then?
yeah i completely agree, and its another reason i think its good to start somewhere even if you want to go into politics... I know a guy who wants to be prime minister, and pretty much expects it to just happen.. He did business or some crap, and i keep telling him, go fucking work, do your job and work your way up to a point of respectability THEN think about politics. who the fuck is going to give a shit about you if you're straight out of uni, and know nothing about the work-force or about how the job-game works? Especially within political parties, it takes a LONGGG time and a lot of dick-sucking to be noticed, you can't just traips in off the street and expect to be the king
the guys a rich kid though, so he doesn't understand what work is really
