signs of jealous.

if a school is good, why does size matters?

perhaps size is the only thing that they are proud of for these jealous mcgill kids?

I am amazed how much size matters to Toronto. I must miss something. Given the many qualities I can think of about UofT, this UofT kid keeps bring up size. When I argue that McGill recieves more awards, more grant money, publishes more, and publishes with higher impact than UofT per faculty member than UofT, this goes over the dude´s head as if the dude cannot comprehend proportions (the dude also does not comprehend averaging based on our discussions about the 2 page press release by Thompson Corp that nobody outside of UofT cares about). Yup, this is typical of Toronto, always thinking in terms of size. They build the highest free-standing structure in the world (CN Tower). What does it do? Nothing really. In fact, I think it is ugly. Does it have a purpose? They say it is an antanae, but why build it on the edge of lake Ontario so that half its airwaves go over nothing? If all you can say is UofT is the best because of numbers, your a bunch dumbasses! Size does not matter. In fact, your infatuation with size really begs one to wonder about of something ...

BTW, McGill beats UofT in terms of total grant money awarded (Research Infosource). That is either amazing for McGill being 3/4ths the size of UofT, or UofT sucks, or a combination of both.

The idiot keeps defending McGill with averaging, research impact per faculty member, blah blah blah vs. U. of T.

The funny thing about all this is...
