Peacocking

24 09 2008

I sent this quote to my friend up at Syracuse:

“Students are like male birds of paradise, employers are like female birds, and getting a college education is like growing a long tail: It is an expensive way to acquire something useless that nonetheless signals your inner qualities”.  Steven E. Lansburg, The Armchair Economist, page 75, 1995

She replied that these activities meant to “prepare you for the real world”, “stimulate your mind” and “test your endurance” in graduate school (but actually just put an insane amount of undue stress and pressure on you) shall henceforth be known as”peacocking”.

I’m peacocking.
