    Old scientists often ask at roundtables how the youth are dealing with the job crisis in science and what we plan to do (this is after they literally ruined everything for thirty years so oh how considerate that you hold all the power and are "worried"). I said something like, well I've had lots of different jobs so if I don't get into an academic position it won't be the end of the world. I've been a baker, a retail person, maybe I would start my own bakery. I was very positive about it. Everyone laughed like it was the cutest idea!

    I guess a lot of people vying for the academic track cannot ever conceive of anything but becoming an academic and balk at having a real job? I dunno.

    I was under the impression you NEVER want to lay a TV flat. Has that changed with newer TVs?

    In my googling about TVs used for tabletop gaming, I saw an article that talked about this - the recommendation was because of the possibility of scratching the glass, and somehow just became "Never lay your TV flat". I didn't see anything about laying a tv flat damaging it otherwise, though someone more knowledgeable about HDTVs might have something to say about that.

    I think even in the face of... everything, there is a large group of people who see being an adjunct making $25,000/year until you die of an infection on your no insurance as just obviously better than not working in academia.

    Part of it is I am pretty sure just willful blindness to the opportunity costs associated with credentialing.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    Hm, but I have no where to put another table, though.

    Hurgh, I think using a projector is my best bet.

    It falls under the same principal as why people dont lay mirrors flat most of the time. If it is sufficiently large its just glass after all. Add to that TVs are typically weighed to be standing.

    What most people do with tabletop gaming is take the screen out of the packaging and anchor it to a custom housing to support it.

    I mean I am a rich guy and I am thrilled about it and I need zero more money. It's not universal, any family making 250k without unusual medical expenses is choosing to be stressed about money

    Family--maybe not. College costs are really weird for the ~200K bracket (who is also maybe still paying off ridiculous loans from med school/law school), because they can't get financial aid but also they cannot easily pay for the type of college they might have attended in the past, let alone for multiple kids at the same time. Obviously sending your kid to your alma mater is a choice but it's still stressful and people are allowed to be stressed about it.

    it me
    actually it's really helpful my dad is a defense contractor who noped out of academia after one year so that always struck me as a thing that one could do for money while holding a PhD
    if my parents had been academics I'd have been in a very weird place mentally

    So, the TV tabletop idea requires me to buy an HDTV and then have a custom table built around it. That's expensive.

    A projector mounted to the ceiling is cheap and will do.

    Are there any concerns about mounting a projector to the ceiling facing downwards?

    Hoo boy yeah. I would take any job over adjuncting? It is just pure labor exploitation. I feel bad for adjuncts. Terribly. But also like....get ....another....job?

    Being an academic, for many in the sector, is an intrinsic part of their identity. Losing that, even voluntarily, feels like failing.

    heh I really love some parts of my job; just internally sold my new bid/program plan

    just me talking casually for like 30 minutes without stopping except to answer a few questions, also making some good shit up on the fly when I realized I left some slide half-done

    It’s genuinely enjoyable and I wish I could do it a lot more

    I can’t imagine mechanically there would be any problem mounting a tv or projector any which way. The tv will have no moving parts at all, projector would have some but probably not something that would care. At least if the make quality is any good.

    Displays can take a lot of beating and bending it’s probably just the surface layer (plastic) scratching that would be the most at risk.

    Charge people tens of thousands of dollars for a degree that makes them unhireable

    And then hire them at poverty wages to teach the next generation of people looking for worthless degrees

    It's a foolproof plan

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
