  1. those are…not very funny

    “Acquaintance tells bad joke, but everyone laughs.”

    Okay, so it’s been objectively determined that the joke is “bad?”

    It’s been objectively demonstrated that the people laughing didn’t really find the joke funny?

    It’s not really doing the discipline any favors, is it?

    If there was ever a group of people to whom the proverb “to a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail” was more appropriate, I’ve yet to find one.

      I dated a sociologist and hung out with her sociologist friends.  So true.  Sociologist live on another plane of existence.  That plane of existence isn’t one where people make prediction based upon models and test those predictions against reality.

    “Heck, no,” said the farmer.   “Sheep lie!”   <– If you don't know the leadup to this punch line,  you're probably better off that way.

    I should but don’t remember Georg Simmel, and he looks so interesting! So thank you three times.

    “The Stranger” is an interesting topic, not just because of Dan Savage’s local alt-weekly, and there Simmel seems to diverge from what I’ve observed of modern German life. He applies great value to a stranger’s outsider advantages? Modern Germans may think of strangers as one of three groups they divide all people into: friends, acquaintances and strangers. Friends you do everything for, acquaintances are necessary for a good life, and strangers, well. You can use elbows on strangers.

  8. Has Sociology changed since I did my degree in the mid-90s? Or is it just different in the US?

    This sounds more like Psychology, or at best, Social Psychology.

    Is it Psycho Sociology?
