You take out your paper

Luckily you have a couple hard copies of your journal paper and an inked up copy of your thesis after reviewer number 2 decided to no longer like his own suggestions on how to format a couple gene tables.

You start passing down your papers to your uncle, dad, mom, and a couple of your siblings who all take a couple minutes to flip around the pages look at the figures, read the abstract and hand it back.

“I don’t know what any of these words mean” your sister responds.

“It looks all very formal and well written” your mom comments.

“Hmmmm, interesting, interesting, have you thought about applying this into a designer baby application for your own start up,” Uncle Robert said. “You’re really talented, I think you should drop out of school, it’s the only way to get rich.”

The paper seemed to not be doing much either, what do you do?

Try something else

Give up and just eat some turkey before someone gets gravy on figure 3, the best figure

After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
