Any other scientists on here?

Postby AbbyGray » Thu Dec 14, 2017 7:38 am

A thought (just a small one) has occurred to me. What happens when you transsistion and you need to reference your publications?
Lol, to think one of the reasons I did PhD was because I hated being called Mr! )(also I love research and Dr Who, original series and modern!)

Fortunately all my "stuff" was on line so I was able to go through and edit where necessary. :D

I have studied men for many years, purely for scientific reasons, of course. :)

Theory and practice? :-)
It's just occurred to me thay I designed some projects for last year's students looking at the elemental content of cosmetics. So I have a big box of make up at work! Then again who knows what they did with it. Don't want my face falling off to save a few quid. Besides it was the cheapest possible makeup as we were looking of heavy metals. Yeah don't eat mascara has a far amount of nastiness in it. (several have significant levels of arsenic in them.)

Not a scientist but enjoyed the science courses. It's got to be a good option if not best for the students or wouldbe students here.

yep, people tend to focus on what you know and can do rather than who you are.

No I married one though. Love science but have no real grasp of it. I'm surrounded by Phd's though. Four of wife's family have one. As you imagine family get togethers can be fraught for me. :)

Meant to be a tongue in cheek comment:

Your PhD must not be in economics or time management cuz, anyone putting in the tremendous effort to earn a Phd simply to be called Doc and not Mister doesn't understand the value of money or time. :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

(You do know that you can buy a PhD online?) :P :P :P :P

I am like the 'Jack of all trades' when it comes to science. I know a lot about a lot of disciplines (astronomy, nuclear physics, medicine, networking, etc) but I do not have my brain sufficiently wired to learn the required languages of mathematics or machine programming. (I do have a Masters in Information Systems)
When writing the next chapter in your life, start with a pencil and eraser - my first page as Miki is full of eraser marks. Doodling is allowed. I have started a new chapter but will still use a pencil.
