    Make it a little more brown, some more mountains in back, and populate the farms with artichokes and you’ve got the 5 in California

    [–] PhD students - whats it really like? Stauce52 8 points ago in gradadmissions

    Haha, I remember one former advisor/professor from undergraduate gave me similar advice. Something along the lines of, "If you're good at anything else and can see yourself happily doing literally anything else, do that. If not, then do a PhD." I think he was being a bit over the top, and I don't think that's necessarily the right message to send to undergraduates trying to get exposure to the merits of a PhD, but I do see what he was saying. It takes a particular type of person. It's just really tough knowing if you're that particular type of person.

    I'm pretty unhappy socially but I've been pretty unhappy socially my whole life so not going to attribute that to a PhD. I absolutely love my lab, love my work, and love my advisor. I am excited to workshop ideas, to discuss findings, etc. I hear of others in the private sector who hate going to work and I don't have that experience at all. I get to set my own schedule, think creatively, discussing and work on exciting new ideas. It's fuckin' great, honestly.

    I think a lot of people (not all, because some situations are genuinely horrible) who complain about their PhD nonstop don't know how awesome the opportunity is (although it can certainly be challenging, don't get me wrong) because they've never worked a real job. That's just some speculation on my part though.

    [–] Politics Podcast: Why One Republican Strategist Wants To Talk More About Socialism Stauce52 10 points ago in fivethirtyeight

    This guy was such an arrogant prick. I don't comment on reddit threads for 538 often but I came here specifically because this guy was such a dick. Galen asked multiple absolutely reasonable questions that this guy reliably responded in the most condescending and arrogant manner of "Ugh, I'm sorry, but ugh-- I'm sorry, I just don't think I can agree with that." I'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude but I'm going to go ahead and be rude for the 12th time within this 45 minute podcast. What a dickhead.
