Things I need to decide

1. Ph.D. To get or not to get, that is the question? I lean to get.

2. To get where? Will American Unis recognize a Ph.D. earned at a European Uni?

3. To get how? Any cool fellowships on the horizon? I'm looking at Linguist List constantly. Should I be pestering others as well?

4. Should I stay or should I go? Benefits of staying: two, yes two consecutive years with a single employer. Agreeable slacker students/admin. Reliable pay and housing. Drawbacks: Imminent brain death. (Can something that has never been alive die? Philosophers take note.)

5. Should I go to...Commenters, fill in the blank. Super-duper job offers appreciated. I'm leaning to Africa, South America, Europe, N. America, Israel or India. Thoughts? Am I limiting myself geographically?

6. Super cool student activities to pass the time while waiting for tuition checks to clear. Where to find some for writing classes?

7. The fate of Peemil. Shall I go to Tasmania to investigate?

That's all for now.

Reflecting on the state of Hungarian education


"Thank you for your article, to be published in the academic journal of (Super Prestigious Hungarian University). I do not wish to offend, but this article is not plagiarized from another source is it? I have to ask because we have discovered three instances of plagiarism by faculty in recent months."

Black Power! Oh...wait....

.....not quite. But it felt good, nu? And a special appearance by Pat Buchanan. Who here does not think "Pat Buchanan" when they hear the phrase Black Power??

On a related note, I was offered a chance to teach business classes. Sure I have no business background but as I was informed, being Jewish means I don't need no experience, since "it's in your blood." Always look for hidden qualifications guys. You may be University President material and not even know it.
