I only went to a "junior" university. Can't comment. ;-)

I saw "Sub Zero" and "Promote" in the same sentence and thought we could finally get a new fridge. :-(

Why do you think I'd left for finance? I wasn't about to let that happen to me.

Yep. Some of the best work in finance. On the other hand, don't feel sorry for those exploited STEM people. They are so willingly being taken for granted.

A lot of ordinary STEM ppl work hard, just to find their labs closed, and their work sent to Asia.

Well, they should not have worked that hard, OR, they could have opened their own labs in Asia. Every decision we make is a bet on the future. We are responsible for our own gambling losses.

That's much closer to bridging the IT world and that of MBA-ologists.

MBA, DBA... Yeah, BA stands for Bullshit Artist. Of course they get along. :-)

Besides, job security is a sucker play anyway.

Why are you so afraid of job instability? More often than not, being laid off is an event of personal empowerment.

Strategist says

No one practices oral sex.

Then why do people like banana?

We know fruit flies like a banana, but people have no wings. Nor do they fly.

Secretary with James Spader is much better.

It absolutely fails as porn.

Fifty Shades without Inner Goddess is like The Bible without Jesus.

Why can't ppl just bone hoes and forget about this crap?

I like parodies. 50SoG is one of the most parodiable stories in recent history.

The Musical is *much* better.

The movie has wasted the parody value of the book.

In SF, RE is still highly related to tech. I would even say that is the primary driving factor right now.

However, tech is also enabled by global macro factors like interest rates and currency wars. The stars are just aligned.

Not according to Paul Tudor Jones.

Tina Fey deserves kudos for being a parody of something that almost defies parody.

She or Amy Poehler should become the new Jon Steward. Or what about Kristen Shaal?

What Sarah Palin said on Fox

More Tina Fey please. :-)

Sometimes I think Sarah Palin is really Tina Fey in character.

The problem is those children that can't even afford to eat will (not) be your customers in 10 years.

Nor would they be my customers anyway.

The financial market allows all future income to be valued at this moment. Why worry about what really happens in 10 years when your job should be anticipating what others think will happen in 10 years NOW?
