A Physicist ! · 1 year, 9 months ago

I certainly wonder why physicists aren't included in this list. But some articles say that one of the worst jobs in science is being a theoretical physicist, and it's alleged that it's because so many of the top models being developed, such as string theory, supersymmetry theory, quantum loop gravity, etc. have had practitioners working on them for decades with nothing to show for them experimentally. The Higgs model was a success, but the others, well, not so much, not yet. It's supposed to be science, but for many, it feels like it's faith-based. Waiting for mathematics to show its "unreasonable effectiveness". · 1 year, 9 months ago
