NEVER DID I SAY YOU OR I THOUGHT YOU WOULD GET HIRED WITH A BACHELORS DEGREE ALONE,NEVER
Calm down bro. Kael never said he was going to jump straight to NASA after graduating with a BA in physics. Hell, he even said directly it would take him a doctorate at least to do so.
So, you don't have a point here.
Your strongest case was proving that getting a psych degree for higher potential income would be a better move for him while he pursued his physics degree. Otherwise, you're just telling him he's stupid for following his aspirations, which is at most conjecture, at least irrelevant, and at all times assholish.

That statistic is highly reported but usually out of context. There's no guarantee that kael getting his psych degree would improve his income appreciably in the meantime until he gets his physics degree and does shit that he really wants to. When arguing this point, you can't really just say "fuck what you heard, get a degree, regardless of what it is".
