7. I would never date an undergraduate.
6. Your latest article was so inspiring.

Okay...you started it:
10. You never complain that your office is too cold in Hell.
9. Everyone has heard of Hell.
8. It's fun getting into Hell.
7. You can't fail out of Hell.
6. At least you can sleep in Hell.
5. Hell is forever; grad school just seems like it.
4. People smile in Hell.
3. You only have to sell your soul to get into Hell.
2. There are attractive people in Hell.

And the #1 subtle difference between grad school and Hell . . .

1. You would never tell someone to go to grad school!

That was posted on the door to the lab I worked in as an undergrad. I googled for it to post it.

And it's all true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
