got the materials for my phd candidacy qualifying exams and uh

the molecular biology dude really handed us a 33pg long paper huh

also they made it harder for everyone because it's online and they can't take away our papers, but like... how much harder could it get it's already a 3 hour exam based on knowing the papers completely

hehe bacterial transformation successful

i shoved a plasmid (a piece of circular DNA) inside my bacteria and forced it to express a red fluorescent protein (original color is on the right, the whitish color)

image of the spongebob meme of spongebob taking out his wallet and spongebob looking confused and disgusted. top (spongebob taking out wallet) says: me ready to spend $47 on a super pretty tarot deck. bottom (spongebob looking confused and disgusted): when they want to charge me $6.50 to ship a tiny deck of cards in a tiny cardboard box

bruh

@naiad commented on this post:
Not that shipping isn't ridiculous but I've been using my local post office a lot and it seems like their minimum price for a "large envelope" is around $3-4 and then they add more onto the price up to a certain weight. So if they do anything extra like buy any kind of bubblewrap or cardboard wrapping + the price of the envelope I can see how it would actually be around that much? I think a lot of people take a cut on their item listing to list shipping as cheaper tbh Idk how ups or fexex price things though

i mean, like i don't mind having to pay extra to cover the costs of shipping, especially since this is an indie place, but human brains are Dumb and if i see "$53 free shipping" i'm like 😊 and if i see "$47 + $6.50 shipping" i'm like 😒

also it's just Weird because nail polish companies will also charge me ~$6 in shipping, but they're straight up shipping flammable materials in glass bottles. they also offer free shipping at ~$50-75, while this place is like "free shipping at $100 😊"

i got my tarot cards for 20 dollars and they're so pretty.....

oh, there are definitely gorgeous sets for ~$20 (shoutouts to the modern witch tarot), but the one i want just happens to be $47 + $6.50 shipping rip

they're matte black with gold foil illustrations, made of recycled plastic so they're easier to shuffle/won't crease

college is a fucking scam lmao (in the USA at least)

i have students who got 50s on an open notebook exam where the average is an 80 and students who got 30s on a report with an average of 60 and the professor said she was going to pass them all, even when it's obvious from their assignments that they have 0 clue what's going on and don't care to actually understand

what's even the point then? why even make students go to class? just tell them to hand over $60,000 and give them the degree instead of letting up continuously fail upwards

it dilutes the value of degrees, especially for students who know their stuff and actually try in class. like that's why they say undergraduate degrees are worthless when it comes to getting a job, because employers know unqualified graduates are everywhere. now you have to waste even more money on a master's or a phd, which is more $$$ in the colleges' pockets and more time that students have to waste away in schools.

and when does a master's degree also become worthless? when will every student have to do a phd and stay in school from age 4 to age 28 just so employers won't throw their resumes in the trash?

education is fucked

edit:
and like... what is this teaching the students? they're not stupid, they'll realize they won't have to do any work in order to succeed (and the TAs will be stuck wasting time grading them and giving them feedback that they won't take). they'll also think that they know what's going on, when in reality, they seriously don't and would be woefully unprepared for employment.
