Hi there, I'm currently 16 years old and am considering this field. Please do your best to answer some of my questions. :)

  • How many years of study did it take you to get your PhD?

  • What does your day-to-day routine consist of?

  • Would you recommend this job to young people? Why or why not?

  • How long did it take to get a job after your PhD?

  • What kind of work did you do for experience prior to your PhD?

  • In your field, which Canadian university is usually recognized as a good school? (I'm trying not to make this question sound generic, but I really do want to know your opinion on some of the universities in Canada. I've so far looked at U of T and Waterloo, so I don't have much to go on.)

  • What knowledge made up the core/basis of your education in university?

  • How has this job affected you as a person?

  • How long have you wanted to be a nuclear scientist?

There are about a million more questions I want to ask you, but I can't seem to put them into words just yet.

Thank you very much for doing this AMA. :)

Edit: Wow, never expected this to be at the top. Thanks for the answers, guys, they've been very helpful. Hopefully I'll get one from OP as well.

the Roman idea of sexual morality that's kind of analogous to chastity, to fuck whatever gender he cared to fuck in whichever orifice he cared to fuck them.

I don't know if I'm just a bad person, but this sounds like a great set of rules.

How long have you wanted to be a nuclear scientist? Pretty much when I figured out how much we get paid.

I tried hard in avoiding this question, since it wasn't, well, "polite", but I feel as if I can actually ask this now... How much do nuclear scientists get paid?

I have nothing to say except: Damn.

The best part about this kind of work is that I'll probably enjoy it... I've liked the sciences for as long as I can remember.

What kind of requests (if any) have doctors made to you before you began recording?
