And you thought the post-docs in *your* lab were old...

Not to make any grad students cry, or anything, but...



This is an advertisement for the AAAS and the National Post-doc Association. They're actually trying to appeal to post-docs to join their organization. Check out how old they look. That woman in the back left? She could be 50. The woman in the center is at least 40. The guy in the red shirt is the only one who looks remotely the right age, and he's 30 if he's a day. And this is the organization that's supposed to be watching out for post-docs. Yowza. They're a little tone-deaf, if you ask me...

Digg!

Heh. Now your secret identity is *mine*! Bring out the kryptonite!

You dont need Kryptonite! Ive been working 10-11 hour days this week-- you could push me over with a feather.

And the sidekick is no help at all, either. Turns out hell hounds demand their walkies, Kryptonite or no.

Gha!
