Gonna Mark All As Read.

So I kinda feel like my advisor is off the deep end.

She wants preliminary results for a project she's been sitting on for three years but we just started this Fall. She wants these results in a month. She wants me to figure out from scratch with no guidance how to use imaging software no one else in the lab knows how to use, that was designed for immunofluorescence, to quantify IHC-DAB. She gave me about four days to figure this out, and to perform a validation experiment using tissue from a previous grad student who is gone. Going through that student's data, I already can see and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the previous data, which has been accepted for publication, is bad. At least the cell counts for the supraoptic nucleus are bad. I don't have time to deal with this and it's also not my problem, but I have a feeling it is about to become my problem on top of having three weeks to process and assay 124 brains.

The reason she has a problem with bad data is because her approach to training is to throw a project at a student and tell them to figure it out, just as she is doing with me right now. If she had taken 20 minutes to train the last student, they would have known that they were counting cells in a region caudal to the supraoptic nucleus, and this data would not be bad. I can correctly quantify staining in these tissues, but I can't use these tissues to validate my method because the existing data is bad... this is a waste of my time. And everyone else's time.

Oh fuck.

Come to donate plasma, wearing the most comfortab le, light clothing possible, because it's Tucson, it's summer, and there's been no rain. I get up to check in, they're like, "Those are pajama pants, you can't donate." FFS they're just pants I'm so fucking pissed right now. This is some bullshit.

It probably sounds ridiculous, but there are people who donate plasma who make a dress code deeply, deeply necessary partly so  that nice people like you also feel safe and comfortable donating plasma.

I suppose that sounds logical. It's just hard when I don't have money to buy pants and it's hot and everything.

??? What do pajama pants have to do with donating???

I don't know, the only reason they sent me home was "We have a dress code, and pajamas are not allowed."

Clearly, you had ulterior motives in replacing their toasters. You're a menace to society and need to be stopped.

My students seem to think there is a serial cat burglar breaking into kitchens to put toasters in there, and they are very concerned about it.

Please kill me.

That is hilariously bizarre.

Millenials killed soap, for fucks sake.

I had to Google "Millennials killed" to see what popped up, and holy shit, as far as I can tell, Millennials are just ruining the shit out of just about everything.

Not economic conditions or a changing information landscape. Nope, Millennials are specifically and personally killing all the things.

Hey, Business Insider says it's our preferences, so it MUST be so! But at least it's the Baby Boomers' fault.

I LOVE that not spending money on frivolous consumer goods has been re-labeled "destructive spending habits". Boomers pioneered actually destructive spending habits in a gluttony of consumerism that literally threatens the future of life on  this planet, but Millennials just not buying shit is "destructive".
 :lulz: :lulz: :lulz:

I know right? I just love it. I'm filled with HA HA HA HA HA HA *stab stab stab stab* just thinking about it, because it's obviously MY fault that I live in poverty and can't afford to go out to Buffalo Wild Wings or buy my clothes at Macy's.  :lulz:

I don't understand what you're trying to get across.
