it weirds me out how so many people don't see academia as an extremely exclusive world
dude even if i had wanted to for the last decade i had no chance of getting far in there. most people are in it because they had rich parents. i have never experienced 'knowledge' like this and i promise you there are other ways
but somehow it still looks like the one way? that you have to make yourself fit into if you're able enough? and then you can claim to be an authority? lol
