No actually. I like to know what flags each country has. So I decided to change my flag alphabetically each day
MTF still shows the old one I guess
Btw what is your field?
Oh, ok, that makes sense. I'm just a lowly undergraduate student. The field will be medicine (academic) eventually.
Bio is just raking in the money these days
Ah, forgot to quote Metis. Oh well, I still remember it so I'll respond anyway, although maybe not much to respond to. So...yeah, bioengineering has loads of money. And to tennizen, yes biology has loads of money. Well, that was easy.
But that actually brings up an interesting point. If you look historically at the way fields are represented in the media, you'll see an interesting correlation between media exposure and how lucrative the field is. So right now, the fields that bring in the most money are health-related (the pharmaceutical industry is the largest in the country...take that big oil!), so ALL the science news is about new medical (normally fake) advances. But then look 40 years ago...all the news was about engineering...rockets...cars...oooh!!!!!
Edit: In response to new post: I really hate how the public perceives of scientists as this great an noble profession. In reality, the whole thing is completely fad based. Look at stem cells...or string theory.
