i didn't know philip
i hadnt heard of him until 2 days ago
but i dont think its right someone so hard done by can just disappear into the aether, i want someone to see this and maybe remember his name
five hundred and eighty stinking pounds for a human life
What a weird article how instead of leading by saying "so and so died", they immediately imply his less-than-ideal job choice led to this result. Did he say that? I don't have the whole article in front of me to see if he said that.
Heres the article, as long as you dont mind giving the Daily Mail views
It didn't get published and Reading has since discontinued it's physics course, I think the only way to get your hands on it now would be to submit a request with the universities library and hope for the best.
>It's something he would have supported and we could have seen him being involved in
What the fuck does that mean? If he didn't express support for it when he was alive then don't put words in the guy's mouth.
I worked in a call center as a telemarketer for a while. It was the fucking worst. Every day I'd come home and my throat would be so sore that I couldn't speak.
That was a job that made me get my ass in gear real fast. I was going to school part time, but it made me realize that I wanted to spend my life using my degree, and not like all of these sad people I worked with, who were trying to raise a family on $10/hour.
One day I remember having someone hang up on me, and a little voice in my head said "you're wasting your time here". I quit pretty soon after.
If I'd worked my ass off for a PhD and that was the best job I could get I'd an hero too.
