>just spend 10+ years in academia to get shoe-horned into a low paying research job where you're wholly dependent on billionaire dollar equipment to publish mostly irrelevant research papers to desperately con politicians enough to renew your funding.

This is a nice summary of the state of physics and chemistry today. Happy I did engineering.

In Math you're trying to con politicians to let you rotate shapes in your head with no value.

>>15011442

You are worth even less in math.

Anon, I...
>Eventually give up on advancement
Stop seeking pay raises and/or higher positions.
>use leverage to only work 3 days a week
Uses events in his life as excuses to not work 7 days a week, but 3 day a week.

He's quiet quiting because he would rather enjoy life than make a lot of money or have high status.

You should read the thesaurus, you are funtionally illiterate.
