    Congratulations! Or "congradulations". Of course, from your pictures, it appears that the endeavor has been hard on your hair. :)

    I was bald way before I started. :) I don't know how but I just wasn't jumpy at all and the presentation of my thesis went like clockwork.It's as if like I've talked to a bunch of colleagues or kids. On my bachelor studies graduation I was very nervous and it showed.It seems I finally evolved .Thanks guys.

    Congratulations
    Undoubtedly so much hard work for such a long time.

    Is it possible/likely your future work will involve research toward--
    ---treating (or curing or alleviating symptoms of) a human condition or disease?
    Or something else entirely?
    Just curious.

    Good going and good luck.

    We will see.Right now I'm preoccupied with finding a job.I really need the money right now.However, from my point of view it's highly unlikely I'll work in research.No funding and many strainous hours....Not worth it.I have to think about myself and my welfare first.It's really hard here.In America I assume the worst part of the financial crysis is over.In other parts of the world were the government doesn't do anything right, the worst is yet to come.

    Amen, Brother :'(

    Yeah, you look pretty calm. During my Master thesis defense, I was red like a tomato, sweating, breathing heavily and probably 5 bpm short of a heart attack. You are one cool chiller indeed. And Neuro is great. I finally settled on parasitology & immunology, but neuro is definitely an awesome field.:pop:
