I've got to get me some of that.

Did you see this article from CNN? It lists 20 jobs where people work less then 40 hours a week and get paid more then average.

Biological scientists are right there at #2. Supposedly we work an average of 38.5 hours per week, and make an average of $65,329 per year.

Say what? The people I know who work less then 40 hours per week are definitely in the minority. But what really gets me is that salary. Where can I get that?

Yeah, I saw that. WTF!?!? Did they just make those numbers up? That would be 3x my income for 1/2 my hours.


Interesting: my verification word is "haters".

I wish! I think they are probably only using the teaching hours, not the actual research, grant writing hours...
