I like teeth's suggestion (if the typo is corrected, at least)

dug's suggestion (Circular Rhetoric And Cocky Knowitalls) would work for Philosophy, maybe?

No, i say we leave philosophy as it is, just so people know that philosophy is an unhealthy addiction, but there's help available.

Gotta do something about Physical Sciences.

Before we started doing the druggy thing, there was a nice parallel between "Life Sciences" and "Physical Sciences". But now, having "Discussions" as part of the name of one of them and not the other, that's a really bad aesthetic clash.

I hate "Life Sciences" vs "Physical Sciences"

wtf?

Life isn't physical? I know we are a post-atheist board and all that, but, really.

All of the name changes suck, and the drug motif is about as funny as the Bart for mod campaign.

You're right, it's positively hilarious that some of the forums have incredibly awkward-looking names that can be abbreviated with the same initials as well-known recreational drugs! It's so original and subtle and outrageous that it has to be funny.
