#608 – meme science

In addition to monitoring their hobbies, there was a lot of talk about millennials' useless degrees and the kind of jobs they could aspire to. Listicles have ebbed a little, but it's not like they've been replaced with much, massive media layoffs abound and all.

  1. Meme science is called 'memetics' and it's the study of how things become culturally relevant and important, treating "memes" or objects of cultural relevance as similar to organisms operating in a cultural environment rather than a natural one! It's a relatively new field but has widespread application, particularly in this age when everyone is trying to "go viral". If he is making listicles, there's a good chance they're popular, but otherwise he may have found a good job in advertising or as a staffer in a political campaign. No Grubhub deliveries for this trailblazer if he keeps his chin up and nails his job interviews!
