Writing a dissertation is rarely fun. Most scientists I know look back on grad school as, well, a circle of Hell. But it’s interesting when AAAS, the professional organization of scientists, endorses this viewpoint – as they appear to do in this T-shirt, which comes free with membership.
Come on, kids! Show everyone how you really feel about your degree! Remind your family that you’re not “that kind of doctor!” Relive the horror of finding a typo in a footnote and having to reprint your entire dissertation on the day it is due!
