I've been in academia for five years, with publications and all that. But since I haven't finished my PhD, I guess I'm an academic lamer. :p Now that I've given up (pursuing a PhD isn't very compatible with having a family), I finally have the time to become a productive member of the demoscene! I would like to lose one "lamer" title after all... :)

From a self-proclaimed lamer to fellow family guy - @ Kylearan - "Do it, motherfucker!"

As my mum said 6 mths before she died - "Ive got this far, why should I give up now?"
She was buried as "Dr".

So what has given you the idea to insult me? Did I insult you?

So we will soon see a Dr. Maali.

but dont you worry, i wont let my high intellect influence my trolling on pouet.

Maali, that is what I wanted to say. You have manners like a child and yet you are going to become a PhD. Do your thesis supervisors read what you write on pouet.net? I seriously wonder whether you would have been accepted for university here in Austria...

oh look a nerd convention

what does anything i write on pouet have to do with my thesis? and well, evidently an Austrian university accepted you, so you should bring to their attention that there are severe flaws in their selection criteria or they are too incompetent to google your blog.

Speaking as someone who regularly evaluates grad students to vet who could potentially offer a phd-screening position for, I would say that "posts a few strange things on a webforum" pales in comparison to "contributes and brags of contributing to a magazine with unsourced crackpot essays, that looks like a very ill clown with no sense of symmetry ate a kilo of M&Ms and puked onto the pages." Case in point: linky

I don't _brag_ about contributing to this magazine. What makes you think I brag about it?
added on the 2013-12-17 18:09:12 by Adok Adok
damn with such a terrible color scheme the impact factor of that magazine must be immense! :))
added on the 2013-12-17 18:21:27 by havamal havamal
The impact factor of this magazine is zero since it's not a scientific magazine. It is a magazine made by friends of mine, who are very nice and not-so-stupid people, and that's why I support it.

Whoever wrote this must be a genius.

That looks like like a magazine made by Jumalauta and Nextempire.

Academia is too stupid. Be in freedom instead!
