We’ve had a lot of chuckles over PhD Comics over the years. One of my personal favorites is Marriage vs. the PhD, with a table comparing the two. One of the others that we think is a perfect crystallization is The Science News Cycle. But those are just a couple of the years of comics that deal with humorous (and sometimes less-than-funny) aspects of the PhD process.
It was great to hear that this was going to become a movie. I thought it was going to be an animation–but it appears to be a live-action film instead. The trailer can be seen on the PhD page in case it doesn’t embed properly for me here. I hope I catch a local showing of it around the Boston area–if anyone know of them when it happens let me know and I’ll post on it. I’ll try to remember to keep an eye out for specifics–it says MIT is on the tentative list right now. Might be another fun meet up for some of the local Boston genomics tweeps too….more #MeadHall.
