There must be more to life, isn't there?

That's what the politicians promise you, but in all honesty, is there? (Asks PeWi a failed Academic, bored IT professional and Comfortable Christian)

Those politicians never give a satisfactory answer though do they to what that "more" is?

I prefer to think of ex academics less as failed, more as escaped or cured ;-)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

I definitely think of myself as more of an escaped academic, rather than a failed one.
