So, he knows exactly what part of the brain is active when you do something stupid like rob banks.  Spoiler:  It's none of it...

It sounds like he should have been robbing the Brain Depositary instead.

I'm guessing he did this to pay back student loans.

If he had studied STEM, he wouldn't have this problem.

Now he'll have to apply for grants like the rest of academia

He is accused of stealing more than $13,000.

You would think a guy with a PhD would be able to tell that the big payoff is white-collar crime, not bank robbery. 13k over 7 robberies is not a sustainable enterprise. You may as well just get a real job.

I know an IT executive that was 100% literally a brain surgeon.

Arkham has terrible security, these guys keep getting out.

I had a philosophy professor in college who used to tell us if we ever felt defeated by the world, to go rob a bank. If you get away with it, hey, free cash, and if you get caught, endless hours of reading time.

Robbing banks for only a few grand?

Guy sounds like a real brainiac.

I work with NIH grants.  I can empathize.

CSB
I was working for the Air Force and my boss was yelling at CA's help desk. He had just spent 200k of your taxes on CA software and all he got was an ftp site, username and password. He wanted CDs but the ferriner on the other end of the line wasn't getting it. The boss yelled "This isn't brain science!" loud enough for the whole office to hear. We wanted to make that the slogan for the contracting company.

Yes. I did spend the next week downloading and burning cds and copying them. How did you know?

They do say that this is the BEST kind of literally...

If you really wanna be an educated criminal,  major in chemistry... or finance.

Neurosurgeon? That's Strange.

US of Murica produces way too many people with advanced degrees.  Many of these graduates end up with a lot of student loans and no way to pay them, and robbery starts to look like a good solution.

Goodbye student loan payments

True about too many PhDs these days, but for something like neuroscience is hope they'd be funded as students- at least past bachelor's. If you can't even get a stipend as a doctoral candidate in the sciences it's time to either cut bait and get a paying job or switch to a lab (field?) with money. It isn't even that competitive if you're open to moving to a boring region of the US or Canada.

First of all, he did not rob any banks. He only demanded money from credit unions.

Much more important, he got caught attempting to rob from the Navy Credit Union. NAVY Credit Union. NAVY. NAVY. Does it take a PhD to figure out that the Navy is hellbent on defense and trashing bozos?
 
2019-03-11 12:20:31 PM  
Since he got caught I guess it was a string theory of robberies?
What a Doron

Not sustainable for that, and also because you always get caught after your final robbery.

I'm guessing the "Physician, heal thyself" option really isn't on the table here...

Sounds like he skipped a few Brain Science classes.
