    This. As a musician, the better I get, the more I realize how much I really suck.

    And you'll go and study it all... and you'll wake up someday and know, very deeply, that you are an expert musician. And then you will be happy you saw it through. Good luck, seriously.

    Some of the reactions to an otherwise excellent illustration demonstrate the maturity of the putative grade schooler in the first illustration.

    Ha, probably not -- but then, who could? Maybe I could convince the accretion disk or ergosphere to give me a boost .... : )

    The blergosphere or the whatsy-disk? Fuck that shit. I'm too busy working on an equation that will effectively describe the behavior of light within the confines of an infinite gravitational field.

    It takes a special passion to push the boundary. I started towards a PhD but I found out that I just like knowing how the really advanced stuff works... not necessarily making my own.

    So I'm finishing my consolation masters and getting on with it!

    That's a better offer than i had earlier today......when i ran into our former mayor and he asked if i was interested in hiring him as a consultant........yes, i'd love to hire the man who put our city in Trivial Pursuit for his one infamous quotes.

    Hahaha love it and true!!

    Just finished my M.S. in chemistry and was really turned off from working in the private sector (the main reason I went back to school in the first place). As an undergrad I was scared shitless about anything chem related but now I find myself endlessly fascinated. The main reason for me pursuing a Ph.D is personal growth. I need to test my limits, intellectually. Just like how working out tests my physical self. It would be awesome to make a noticeable contribution to scientific understanding along the way!
