    You should probably give credit to XKCD, where this came from, and Randall Munroe, who created it. The “BY MICAH GOULART” makes it look like you’re taking credit for his work, which I’m sure isn’t meant to be the case.

    Sociology is so not relevant to the real world.  It’s like (pseudo) science for business majors.

    Oh maths? Is that an application of a set of axioms based on philosophical investigation? I believe it is. Philosophy sees you somewhere in the distance.

    I think you’re right as far as ‘purity’.
    I also think physics is the mack-daddy of all the sciences.
    That’s just MHO.

    Maths is just a medium we invented and use in order to understand the universe around us. It doesn’t physically exist unlike the sciences.
