Sometimes you purchase something you absolutely know you will never use...but you need to have it anyway....

The Stupidity of Science

January 22nd, 2016|Just Thinking|

I always find it interesting how there seems to be a societal expectation that if you get a PhD you will either become a University professor, or live in the world of research for the rest of your life. I’ve been asked why I continue to want to work for the government, all things considered. [...]

What are you waiting for?
