The actual value of a PhD has been lively debated.[1][2][3][4][5] To the best of my knowledge however, no one thus far has been able to pinpoint the exact number.

I am therefore delighted to be able to do so here, and hence put a final end to the discussion.

You can now get a (pair of!) PhD for 15 USD (100 SEK) (vide infra). Firesale.


One more thing. See the little trademark sign above the logotype? Someone is claiming the PhD trademark. Whether the company behind is planning to build their future fortune on selling light cushion socks, or by suing thousands of academic institutions and philosophiae doctors around the globe for trademark infringement remains to be told.

    I especially love that this PhD benefits from WOW Technology and SmartWool.

    I tried to incorporate these into my thesis, but they didn’t play well with ChemDraw.

    The real question is: How much can you get for a used PhD?

    Having written TM and not ®, this means they have not registered their trademark, so : could they sue anyone for using their trademark ? We need an intellectual property specialist here 😉
