Is it the pointy beard?

In the bus this morning I was casually eavesdropping on a pair of undergraduates, who were bemoaning the vices of the Graduate Student. To whit: widespread apathy, deficiency of funds, unwillingness to sign petitions, and a broad failure to participate in [a number of programs that sounded like a waste of time. Harrumph]. One of them continued: "Sometimes, I just go to Olin [Library] cafe' and look around and ask myself: who here looks like a grad student? Who here looks like a tortured intellectual?"

If only. I think that made my day.
