Bunch of bastards. Looked like they were ignoring me, hunched over their laptops, only one guy engaged with me.

I signed off with "shove your hadron up your fucking collider" and they laughed. "Doesn't make sense" was the last voice I heard as the line went dead.

You have to start questioning yourself when even normally mild mannered theoretical physicists think you're a gigantic steaming cunt.

They have a 'neat' bit of software that I want to use for modelling biofilm development in a microfluidic chamber. These dumbos don't care about real world problems, so 'seemingly' shrugged and spread a new layer of quark on their Swiss toast. Will find out if they want to buy into a collaboration soon. Don't hold out much hope, but I have their software anyway as a colleague has helped develop it with them.

I would have thought the Times Higher Education award for best fucking university in the whole goddamned UK would be a good indicator.

In all seriousness though the top 3 great bunch of lads would be probably, Manc, Cardiff, Brizzle

Never worked with Trent Poly. Last time I was there was to see My Bloody Valentine in 1988 or 89. Still can't hear properly now.

If you want anything resembling an interesting social life then that rules out exeter and dundee - all 3 are great for cheap housing though. I did expect Brizzle to be snobby cunts but they surprised me.

Probably not, I'm not a real academic - I'm a Professor of Practice and not really allowed near students or research. My job is to get large amounts of money out of industry and government.
