一个关于graduate student的joke

有人在系里实验室的墙外贴了个joke,内容如下(不妨数数你与其中多少条情况吻合,括弧中是俺的状况,呵呵):

You just might be a graduate student if…

…you can analyze the significance of appliances you cannot operate.(水平尚未达到)
…your office is better decorated than your apartment.(两个都没咋decorated)
…you have ever, as a folklore project, attempted to track the progress of your own joke across the Internet.(没干过)
…you are startled to meet people who neither need nor want to read.(有点苗头)
…you have ever brought a scholarly article to a bar.(很少去bar,不过但凡要去的地方基本有这倾向,超市除外)
…you rate coffee shops by the availability of outlets for your laptop.(不仅仅是coffee shop)
…everything reminds you of something in your discipline.(kinda)
…you have ever discussed academic matters at a sporting event.(yes)
…you have ever spent more than $50 on photocopying while researching a single paper.(尽量找free的)
…there is a microfilm reader in the library that you consider "yours."(尝试过,未果)
…you actually have a preference between microfilm and microfiche.(同上)
…you can tell the time of day by looking at the traffic flow at the library.(可以根据flow at lab来判断)
…you look forward to summers because you’re more productive without the distraction of classes.(not so crazy yet)
…you regard ibuprofen as a vitamin.(never)
…you consider all papers to be works in progress.(sure)
…professors don’t really care when you turn in work anymore.(not really)
…you find the bibliographies of books more interesting than the actual text.(sometimes)
…you have given up trying to keep your books organized and are now just trying to keep them all in the same general area.(since I was in middle school)
…you have accepted guilt as an inherent feature of relaxation.(sometimes, especially during weekends or holidays)
…you find yourself explaining to children that you are in "20th grade".(no yet)
…you start refering to stories like "Snow White et al."(close)
…you often wonder how long you can live on pasta without getting scurvy.(I often wonder how long I can live on a 6-hour sleep per day with endless work)
…you look forward to taking some time off to do laundry (I wish)
…you have more photocopy cards than credit cards (I usually press the print button)
…you wonder if APA style allows you to cite talking to yourself as "personal communication" (what the hell is APA?)
