The Academic Life

The academic life is not all class preps, research, and conferences. As I was reminded just today, it is also a mean and nasty profession, in which some professors seem to derive their greatest satisfaction not from any achievements of their own but from impeding the achievements or even the careers of their supposed colleagues. In academia, it seems, schadenfreude is endemic.
