    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.

    i imagine one could build a table to mount a tv pretty easily and cheaply

    Oh, true.

    I told girlfriend (who has a master's in public policy) that some science majors get paid a stipend for grad school and she literally didn't believe me. I had to show her articles to prove it to her.

    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.

    The idea of going to a PhD program and not even getting a stipend makes me very sad

    Like it's already a huge opportunity cost, to charge for it is just twisting the knife.

    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.

    I haven't heard of any science PhD program that doesn't pay its grad students. Sometimes the program comes with a teaching obligation (but my program just wanted a semester or maybe two of TAing, where TAing meant grading, not teaching), and of course you're doing research, but you always get paid. (...$15-30K. Usually in the mid 20s I think.)

    I'm all for literary minimalism when it comes to verb descriptors, but...

    I feel like Batman probably has a p strange laugh.

    Bruce Wayne has a solid politician's "HA... ha... Haha."

    Batman... yeah, he's probably got an off-putting man-giggle.

    I've been told it is the same with polisci. But I went into a public policy program instead of a PhD program.

    The 2nd Amendment is unarguably one of the most liberal, liberating and radical statements ever made in human history.
