Egyptologists-R-Cool

06 Aug 2008

From today's news story about DNA testing mummies:

"Hawass said the program could help determine Tutankhamun's family lineage, which has long been a source of mystery among Egyptologists."

I think it was just a case of bad luck for me -- a long, pathetic string of it. But, throughout all of my schooling, no one ever provided career advice. Or, even if they did and I'm just failing to recall it, I'm still 99% certain that no one ever mentioned "Egyptologist" as a career option. Damn, that would've been a cool job, too -- completely worth doing just to have that on my business card: "Patrick Hillman, Egyptologist."

Ha! I was just thinking the same thing ... . And why do little kids want to be firemen? I wanted to be like Ponch on C.H.I.P.S. but Egyptologist was never mentioned as an option.

Egyptology is way cooler than Kenyaology.

All the good jokes on this have been butchered in this comments section. I am leaving.
