Now that I have the assumption train rolling down the tracks, allow me to make one more sweeping—but, very calculated—generalization. I’m fairly confident that the majority of you reading this post, at one point or another in your academic career, became visibly uncomfortable (I’m talking fingernail-biting, palm sweating, I’d-literally-rather-be-anywhere-but-here uncomfortable) anytime…
