But I digress....

    Assuming of course you are in a field that actually has sources of external funding!

    For me it was the utter lack of tenure-track (ideal) or at least longer-term positions. Chasing short-term contract after short-term contract was just too depressing a prospect for me. I do miss the teaching and the research though.

    Ahh, if you click the link at the bottom you get the original (non-commercialized version, with the original photos).

    I completely agree with you that the original article is much much much better.

    A friend sent this over to me a few days ago and was how I found out about Hart. I was sold on those photos, the production quality was really top notch - the reprint is a disappointment.

    While it doesn't spend much time on shaving w/ SR8s, this morning's Wall Street Journal, Personal Journal section, features a big spread on "In Search of the Perfect Shave." Mostly deals with using non-straight razors but does say, with respect to SR8s that they tend to offer a superior shave but also demand more time and money. True true but...worth it! Anyway, the thing I learned that I didn't know is that Gillette owns Art of Shaving. The article talks at length about the importance of pre-shave. Final interesting factoid was that Gillette watches 80 men shave every weekday morning at its shave-technology center in Reading, England.

    Yep, been there, done that. I got really drunk with a visiting prof one night and decided the next day to get out. He won the Nobel prize the next year.
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.
