Funny read about great and not-so-great reasons to become a marine biologist, text by Dr. Milton Love. This is the link to the full text, but here’s a preview:
“Okay, here’s the bottom line. By federal law, marine biologists have to take a vow of poverty and chastity. Poverty, because you are not going to make squat-j-doodly in this job. And just how squat is the doodly we are talking about? Well, five years after finishing my PhD I was making slightly less than a beginning manager at McDonalds.
And chastity? Well, who’s going to date someone who persistently smells like a thawed haddock with an attitude? Not even a dolphin.
But there are two really, really good reasons to want to become a marine biologist.”
Enjoy the read 🙂
