Theoretical conversation between mikhail simkin and his thesis advisor:
advisor: So how's your research going?
mikhail: Yeah I'm not really "motivated", I sorta want to just sit on my ass and surf the net.
advisor: You can't just waste time searching for useless crap on the internet, this is UCLA dept of Electrical Engineering. You'd better have a publishable paper the next time I see you.
