My advisor asked me this morning to give him slides of new results for a presentation on the project I was told to put on the back burner for a while... by tomorrow morning.
I'm very tempted to send him a slide paraphrasing Edison: "Results? I have results! I know thousands of things that don't work."
And then include 10 slides of everything I've done that hasn't worked. But somehow, I don't think that's what he's looking for.
