Grad school is a big deal. Well done!

Look, here is a nice thread for you guys.
Could you leave your pee and American chain food conversations out of the one thread where people actually post interesting articles? Yes? Fantastic, thanks!

FlamingGlobes 05-21-2020 03:46 PM

I will do my part, but when 95% of the board would rather talk about sandwiches and feces, I think you're fighting an uphill battle.

pavementtune 05-21-2020 03:50 PM

Sandwiches and feces are two of my favorite meals, I belong to the 95%. I just don't see why we have to be sandwich-fecing in the covid thread, which is the only topic on here with articles being posted, and now you have to eat your way through pages of sandwiches and feces to find them!

FlamingGlobes 05-21-2020 03:51 PM

lol I get it. On the other hand, conversation flows and we're all to blame. But mostly, it's Took's fault. We all agree with that, right?

pavementtune 05-21-2020 03:53 PM

Absolutely, Ram27 is on it, delivering feces sandwiches to Took's dad as we speak.

Ever eaten dung?

pretty much this. i never enter a thread actively aiming to aid in its alleged derailment, I just see the conversation at hand & respond to it. it's just the Joey Goldberg Way (patent pending)

FlamingGlobes 05-21-2020 03:55 PM

Nah, Burger King ain't my bag

FlamingGlobes 05-21-2020 03:56 PM

Great, now this post doesn't make sense because Joey derailed YET ANOTHER THREAD

pavementtune 05-21-2020 03:59 PM

I'll derail your balance by taking a massive shit on your shoes.

pavementtune 05-21-2020 04:00 PM

Didn't we have an actual poop thread? I don't mean Shits Recently Taken, wasn't there a second one? I feel it's calling my name.

Joey Goldberg 05-21-2020 04:04 PM

Billy has Copromania or whatever

yeah... y'all can have dat

i had a phone meeting with my new advisor (not my dept advisor, but another program i am in that has a mandatory meeting with a special advisor). My old one was a graduate student intern and today I heard they got let go afte the shut-down but they still got full pay.

It was supposed to be 15 minutes but turned into 45 because she treated it like her advising appointment. She told me all about her situation at home and how she is working toward her PhD with a 13 year old daughter. We talked about how diversity should in-clude economic dversity and she remembered when I asked her about an application waiver for Northwestern. They don't offer them under any circumstances to "be fair." You really got pick and choose or roll the dice. Or you gotta jump through hoops and do way more work than people who can just pay the money if a waiver is an option. Like, why do you have to pay just to be considered?

Oh, don't tell me you're one of those weirdos that heard 'laurel'...

MyOneAndOnly 05-22-2020 11:48 AM

did I mention i bought a car? I haven't owned a car in 3 years. I hate cars. But I have to have one now to get to work, and I was sick of asking my GF to pick me up.

smashingjj 05-22-2020 11:49 AM

I never owned a car and got my driver's license a year 5 ago. I forget how driving works each time i do drive

FoolofaTook 05-22-2020 11:51 AM

When did you forget how English works?

they brought the car to my apartment building so I could test drive it. I got 2 blocks down the road and ran a red light right in front of the State Department.

The sales person didn't wear a mask or anything. She freaked me out. I wanted to sign the papers and make her leave as fast as possible.

All people are disease vectors.
