I thought his may provide a bit of comic relief during the wait for decisions to come back. It kind of represents everything which is good about tenure, and everything which is bad. Generally, if I get in someplace, and manage to get out with a degree, its kind of what I can look forward to.

Conversation with Professor X (tenured)

Professor X: I hate doing these faculty time evaluation forms, so i just kind of fake them. What are they going to do, fire me? Now, what have you done since we last talked for the project.
Sam: ...(tries to talk but gets cut off)
Professor X: I am really excited about our current project. It has nothing to do with my field. I kind of feel guilty about that, but I don't really care.

Gotta love tenure....

Quote from Hopkins graduate professor:

"No, look at this, this is economics, treat it with the contempt it deserves!"

Even funnier if you picture with his Indian accent.

Somebody in my class referred to a professor as "The Dragon from the North".

Our Macro professor was "Mighty Mouse"

And somebody came up with the idea of calling our Micro prof "Superman"... sometimes it takes whatever gets you through it
