top 10 lies told by grad students,


1. No really, I'll be out of here in only two more years.

2. My job prospects look really good.

3. The department is giving me so much support.

4. I just have one more book to read and then I'll start writing.

5. I turned down a lot of great job offers to come here.

6. Your latest article was so inspiring.

7. I would never date an undergraduate.

8. My work has a lot of practical importance.

9. I'd be delighted to proofread your book/chapter/article.

10. It doesn't bother me at all that my college roommate is making $80,000 a year on Wall Street.

11. No, I have never ever touched any key of the new astronomically expensive machine!
(When it is broken after two weeks)

12. I have exactly followed the protocol!
(After you have repeatedly seen incubation times beeing adjusted to the length of coffee or cigarette breaks)

13. Of course I know the difference between the EtOH we use for cleaning the bench and the 99.99999% one!
(EtOH can be replaced here by Maltose/Malt Extract, NH4-acetat/Na-acetat, Glucose/Glycerin <_<, Potassiumcloride/Potassiumhydroxide, but I think there are more examples to add)

Negative data is just as valuable as positive (you know, the stuff you can publish).

21. Thank God they didn't accept my abstract for the congress. I really didn't want to submit as I was planing to go sky diving on the same weekend. It was boss who kind of forced me to submit. I am so relieved.
