I've often wondered what it cost me to forget about life for my
20something slacker decade to pursue a PhD. Now I know. Five point
five million. Shucks, even if you don't care about money, is *anything*
worth giving up five point five million for?

Sure, lots of things. What if you had gone to Microsoft and you
worked so many hours and got so stressed it destroyed your
relationship with Michelle? Would that have been worth $5.5
