We all know academia is very lucrative.

This year's raises? Word on the streets is they'll be 0.4%. Rock on.

Woohu! 0.4%! Wow! You can go to Starbucks a couple extra times per month with that!

I realize this is an old post and that new comments on old posts get ignored, but this reminds me of a great comment I read on Slashdot a while ago.

There was some story or another about a scientist faking data for a study. The usual Slashdot comment crowd was up in arms, and somebody said something about how this person obviously did this because of all the money they were making as a scientist. The great comment was the response from a scientist, who said something like, "Going into science for the money is like having sex for the exercise".

How true.
