What do professors dream about? One of my colleagues had a strange dream recently: one of his graduate students was in prison.
Was this a bad dream? In fact, it apparently was not.
Both my colleague and his student, who was imprisoned for unknown reasons, were happy (in the dream). The advisor was happy because the student had access in prison to everything he needed to do his research, and the student was happy because he would have something to do while in prison.
It is probably not a coincidence that this colleague has recently had trouble getting one or more of his graduate students to focus and complete some projects.
