The reason why no one makes tenure....
...So they tell you that the reason why people don't make tenure is because they fail to publish enough or they are miserable teachers or their ideas don't fit with the mission of the dept. What they fail to mention is that another reason why people don't make tenure is because they starve to death!
None of the professors I'm working with seem to eat (ever). My advisor at my previous institution was notorious for not eating lunch at all. And now I am joining the ranks of those that do not eat. But I'm not sure I'm happy about it. My body doesn't care much for 12+ hours with no food.
