Careers In Academia

Here’s the dealio: To succeed in academia, you’ve gotta be somewhat hard-working, extremely persistent, moderately talented, and LUCKY. If you are not willing to engage in a long-term career plan whose success hinges in large part on factors that are 100% out of your own control, then don’t do it.

If you are willing to roll the dice, then go for it. But don’t come crying all WATB if your luck doesn’t pan out, cause you’ve been told.

Academia is not a career for someone who wants to know that if they put in the hard work, they *will* get the reward.

Save The Vuvuzuelas!!!!!

The only thing more annoying than the vuvuzuelas are the fucking whiny-ass cockbag motherfuckers complaining about them. If you wanna watch a fucking 0-0 tie game of that boring-ass soccer shit, at least shut the fucking motherfuck up about it. No one gives a flying fuck that the little horns are bothering you. In fact, normal sports fans are *glad* the little horns are annoying you, soccerdouche!


I know intellectually that abject dumbfuck stupidity knows no bounds, but it still never ceases to astound me when PIs behave in ways that are diametrically opposed to the success of their labs.
