sometimes I think I am insufficiently demanding as a PI


I mean fuck!

  • There is a fine balance between insufficiently demanding and inhumanely demanding. Insufficiently demanding is insufficient when there is insufficient personal drive and work ethic in a laboratory member. Is that sufficient?
    btw, the category tag should be FWDAITL or FWDAIML. But FWDAOTI is sufficient.

  • FWDAITL? FWDAIML? FWDAOTI?!?
    What does it take to get the super secret decoder ring? Please don't tell me I have to wait until I'm a professor... I certainly don't think I can wait until I get an R01; I'll be wandering in confusion for another 15 yrs (give or take)?

    His trainees aren't dumbasses, he's just trying to get bitter trainees to project their demons onto him*, thus FWDA*OTI*.
    He's quite good at it, actually.
    *Or possibly get us to actually think about what it's like to be a professor. But that sounds too benevolent.
