Ninja professors

From the excellent Piled Higher and Deeper comic strip by Jorge Cham, Like many of the best comics (Dilbert, xkcd) 🙂 PhD is authored by an engineer: Jorge Cham got his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, and was a full-time Instructor and researcher at the California Institute of Technology.

    Really enjoy the play of comparison. Now what I would really enjoy is a similar comparison of Business Men vs Engineer.

    Very funny. I do think the previous commenter Joe would have a rough time finding a similar comparison between Businessman and engineer. While there are a lot of lousy businesspeople and lousy engineers, the mindset of many of the professors that think they are super smart is what has led to great comedy like the one presented here. Then again, the author of this site may be able to provide us with something phenomenal. I guess we will have to wait and see. Looking forward to it. Thank you.
