Probably the same reason I did : because I thought it would be brilliant, intellectually stimulating, rewarding, and devoid (?spelling?) of the pettiness one can probably encounter in other fields. I honestly thought scientists didn't care about money and worked happily hand in hand and fatly paid (because of the prestige and the loooooong years in university, you know) :)

Ha ha ha, how could I be so naive???? No I have a diploma, but I hate the job. :angry:


Which brings us back to my collective suicide theory. OR we could move to a faraway island and live like hippies and sing songs or something. I volunteer as cook (I know nice ways to prepare fish).

We should all have taken a hint from Albert Eintein who said;

'science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it'.

Says it all really.

Have to say I think we all have a bit of sadism/masochism in us. We hate not being able to understand or explain something so we torture ourselves until we work it out - we are crazy!

there is nothing quite like have an experiment not work for 6 (*#&$^! months, and then it works perfectly.... quite a sense of achievement in that. champagne for all. crazy is good.

i compare science with magic. sometimes... things just work... and you can never explain why it didn't work the first 100000000000000000000 times.
