    I hear he has a 5 week PhD candidacy exam beginning next week, which sounds pretty intense. So I think we should give him some happy thoughts!

    Account no man happy till he dies.
    - Euripides

    Er, wait, I can do better.

    We're going to turn this team around 360 degrees.
    - Jason Kidd, upon his drafting to the Dallas Mavericks

    :rofl: I just thought that was funny.

    This isn't right, this isn't even wrong.
    - Wolfgang Pauli, upon reading a young physicist's paper

    Eh, I'm not good at motivational quotes.

    If you are going through hell, keep going.
    - Sir Winston Churchill

    Never take the advice of someone who has not had your kind of trouble.
    - Sidney J. Harris

    Okay, I don't know what you're going through. But I can cheer!

    C'mon Gokul, you can do it - You put a lotta blood, sweat, tears, and the best years of your life into it!! Go get 'em, Tiger! :biggrin:

    The most important thing to remember is that when it's done, you can sleep for a whole day and then PARTY! :biggrin:

    I just thought of a surefire strategy: If you get into trouble, just start yelling, "π/2!! The answer is π/2!!!" They may have read the comic, start laughing, and forget all about it. :wink:

    I'm sure you'll be successful anyway! Just do your best and then you'll have enough time to enjoy your life in the future. :smile: And don't worry, we'll try to forgive you because of your absence for a short period! o:)

    hmm maybe I should add that "nose to the grindstone" means to work very hard.

    The "right" answer in such a circumstance is of course "Canada". Try to enjoy it & kick some butt, you sure don't have much need for luck. [​IMG]
