So many zeros…

Today, the entire 3-month research stipend covering the cost of my stay in Berlin (living expenses, plane ticket etc), was deposited on my bank account. All at once.

Am I a bad person for even wondering how many years I could live off that, were I to accidentally end up on some remote beach island instead of Berlin’s Max Planck Institute for Molekular Genetics?


  1. I would say you’re a perfectly normal person for wondering about that. It’s an alluring train of thoughts.. but little rewarding in the end, I reckon.
