Meh, dime a dozen - even I have one of those. Girly, too, methinks.

It's worse than that; even I have an MS to go along with my law degree. I can't think of anything devaluing an MS more than a lawyer having one.

Oh, and I watch The Big Bang Theory and they say geology isn't a real science.

Kidding aside, good for you. Keep plugging away and get that doctorate.

RE: I feel like a scientist
Congrats TBD!! Sounds like a lot of hard work, better you than me. Yes

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

It hasn't been the easiest past few months but I can also look forward to an eventual release of my first publication as a first author and another co-authored publication.

Today, I feel like a real scientist.

And I have nearly had an entire bottle of crown royal in celebration. So I apologize for my grammar!
Congratulations!!!!!

Congrats! Finally passing my cums (pronounced "cumes") was one of the highlights of my life. Enjoy the feeling for a day and then get back in the lab. Smile

We all know Hovind is the most honest among us. It is a global conspiracy to ignore him

As for those following the OrganicChemist, I'll post pdfs as I have the final copies available to demonstrate my inaptitude.

Nice. I was hoping you would know that I wasn't serious as some people miss sarcasm. The videos Thunderf00t did on him still make me laugh.

Although passing those can have the same feeling.

RE: I feel like a scientist
Congrats! A rock monkey eh? The sexiest ones have a scottish accent I find.

For me I first felt like a scientist, or at least could call myself one when I got my first paper published.

I'm working with a load of Biologists in my new job. It's kind of annoying because twice now I've heard people refer to the ones wearing a white lab coat as scientists with everyone else classed as non-scientists. I had an induction day today and was given a tour of the part of their labs. I was looking forward to it because for the first time ever I could wear a lab coat too like a proper scientist *cough*. They gave us some really shitty see-through white cotton / paper coats which tore easily and looked like the inner lining of a duvet.

In reality though from what I gather most people hate lab work and just want to get behind a computer. It probably explains why so manu of them get into software engineering.
