i just realized that fucking ross geller got tenure in the field of paleontology at, like, age 30? and must’ve been hired at that tenure track position in his mid-20s? how was he so young? how old was he when he got his PhD? did he just… get a job after graduating without even doing a postdoc? is this what the 90s were like? fuck the 90s. fuck ross geller. fuck the way rachel got that coffee shop job with no experience

Assuming he started grad school at a normal age (21) and then completed his degree in 4 years (not unheard of for geniuses in my field) and then assuming he got a faculty job straight of grad school (impossible even for geniuses in my field) and then assuming the traditional 6-years until tenure process…

Ross, at the youngest, feasible approximation, could have gotten tenure at 31. But he would’ve had to be a 1-in-a-million genius within the field of paleontology.

Ross was secretly a prodigy and everyone else on the show was so bored of his dinosaur talk they never realized.

My dad swears by those Penguins. He said that they were so classy that all you had to do was sit in the right café in Soho, pretend to read one, and you’d be hip-deep in impressionable young women before you ordered your second espresso.
