Spending the night proofreading again.

You know what sucks? writing part of a paper, proofreading it, editing and reformatting the entire thing to fit journal format, writing and assigning figure legends, and proofreading 3 more drafts of it (which is no small task considering the grammar of my PI), and glancing at the title to notice that you're fourth author behind a visiting scientist that has contributed exactly Jack Pierpont Shit to the project. I swear to christ. Remind me why I'm in research again?

HA!
Dude, seriously, what is the fucking point of making some jackass co-author if they havent done a damn thing for the project! That shit happens over here all the fucking time and its been annoying the living shit outta me. At my last job our PI wouldnt even entertain the thought of putting my name on a paper, then I get over here and every muthafucka that looked at the grant gets co-authorship... weird!
