Is an MIT researcher not the same as a professor?

And so castles made of sand fall in the sea, eventually.

Down the street you can hear her scream "You're a disgrace!" as she slams the door in his drunken face...

Or the researcher could be a undergrad research assistant, or a grad student, or a degreed non teaching employee, or a bunch of other people that work at a college or university. If the janitor got a grant and some lab space, it could be the janitor.

The most expensive grain of sand you'll ever see.

Ah, sure, I suppose that's true.  I was thinking of a person in charge, long term, etc.  Seemed like a professor, but I guess that's certainly not necessarily the case.

Is there a market for this, or is it like having a degree in humanities?

Research isn't about what you can sell, research is about what you can do.  What you can sell is the job of the marketing department, or product planning.

I can almost guarantee it's a student researcher, a postdoc, or one of the microscopy lab managers. Focused ion beam (FIB) milling takes a lot of time and patience, neither of which an MIT professor has. They're out there getting grant money and writing papers while the students do the leg work.

I sit and wonder why-ai-ai.

Access to an electron microscope, and this is what he does.

Worse: he gets media recognition for it.

Lower: some uneducated Farker thinks it's wintastic.

This is how the world ends. This is how the world ends. This is how the world ends.

Not with a bang, but with a whisper.

Oh, stop complaining.

Impossible.  besides, you changed the outcome by observing it.

Castles etched on sand you must zoom in to see. (Eventually)
