Career milestone. Finally attended a meeting of the Maize Genetics Cooperative. It was everything I’d expected from the legendary community. The science was invigorating, and I got to meet many of my heroes and the students who are the next generation in our field.

How many years does it take to get a PhD? It depends on the field, but it is ~ 10% of US life expectancy.

When adding 17 y for the typical pre-graduate school educational track, it is ~ ⅓ US life expectancy (data also show that higher educational attainment correlates with greater lifespan.)

History flashback. About the only NYT quiz where I stand a chance. The statistics indicate that those of us drawn to take this quiz are clearly self-selected history junkies.

Jazz fusion and baroque do it for me. I spend countless hours listening to it. But Apple Music tells me these are the top ten tunes I listen to. Not ashamed. Great music (and artists.) Prolly gives away my age, too.

“For the period Jan 2017 to Mar 2020, just 29% of adults reported the healthfulness of their diets was “very good” or “excellent.” For context, the figure was 41% in 1989–1991.”

You’re not a trail runner unless you frequently alternate these thoughts:

“How lucky am I. I could do this forever.”

“If I die out here, no one is ever going to discover my carcass.”
