  • "Philosopher" is a word that a lot of people don't use, and when they do, they envision either an old guy with suede patches on his elbows sitting in a musty university office, surrounded by books, smoking a pipe, and talking about Aristotle, or they envision a young man not yet graduated from university, wearing beat-up t-shirts and long hair in a ponytail, sitting with his legs crossed on the lawn, talking about "the system."

    As to Madness of George III, well, many people go to movies without really know
    • Another reason that has mentioned to me on occasion is that most Americans don't know that George III was the full title of the king who fought the war of independence. Apparently you mostly just refer to him as King George (ignoring the other five Georges).

        That's probably true. I would have guessed George III, but would not have been absolutely sure, because I have no real context: I don't know anything about the other Georges. So the "III" is, to me, just a number. And I was not a math major.
