Promoted to full professor

  1. @Christan There is nothing next. That’s the whole point! You either change job (leave your professorship), retire or die.

    I can finally stop showering in the morning. Good bye my tooth brush. And I no longer need to make sense (not that I ever did). I’ll also never get another hair cut. Within five years, I’ll look like a smelly bear. I’ll be extremely rude to everyone, and lazy as a mushroom.

    (I am kidding, of course. I will still shower in the morning.)

    Congratulations. Your Mom’s response is priceless…they always want to know you’re doing OK don’t they?

  14. Hi Professor Daniel Lemire, Congratulations to you and your mum. She must be very proud of you – so happy that she couldn’t express them in words – and that you are so rich now. Your sense of humour just shine. I love Maths too…promotion + love from your mum and your family = happiness. Does it sound right? Wonderful to hear such happy news from you.

    Hé, hé, hé…
    Now, HOW will you justify any kind of effort?
    Still, don’t forget to “save the world” I guess your wife will appreciate 🙂

    Congratulations, Daniel!

    Ah, the flashbacks to my undergrad years! That describes about 50% of my old CS profs.

    Congratulations, I think it is exciting to see when the full academic career path works out for someone!

    Especially since now you can pursue new that might be risky or uncertain but you have nothing to lose 🙂

    Awesome job!
