comment Why did it become so much more expensive to start a university?
@JohnB There was also the pre-WWII brain drain of refugees, which greatly helped US universities.

comment How many professors are there in technical fields with no degree whatsoever?
As a counter example, many music faculty have a MFA, which is a terminal degree. For example, look at many of the faculty listed on this page: music.wisc.edu/faculty.

comment Commercial company wants me to list all prior “inventions”, give up everything not listed
I'm curious about current practice. I've heard the same use of lab notebooks by chemistry and pharmaceutical labs, but that was over a decade ago. Thanks for asking about it.

I didn't vote on this answer, but your information about a poor man's patent might be outdated (a poor man's patent was traditionally putting a letter in a sealed dated envelope, but the lab note might be similar). The America Invents Act of 2013 changed the law (e.g., see an article by a law firm that will happily answer you patent questions, for a fee).

comment Can a researcher hire 100% themself with funds from H2020 project (or other call)?
Broadly, your question seems to be abound funding yourself entirely with soft money. There are already several questions on that topic on this site: academia.stackexchange.com/search?q=soft+money

Asking about similar situations is also "shopping". Please see this link: academia.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/3657/…

The answer seems specific to a given university's policies and asking for a list of other universities seems like a shopping question. Both of these questions types are off topic on this site.

comment Does the length of an IPCC Scientific report imply anything about credibility or thoroughness?
There are several problems with this post. First, you assume policy documents are the same as peer reviewed scientific documents. They are not. Second, you appear to assume policy documents are peer reviewed. Most are not. Last, your question reads as a rant because the background has nothing to do with your question. If you were to delete your background, your question, might fit into the scope of this site, but it is largely opinion based.

comment Industry value of Doctoral degree when compared To a PhD in Computer Science
@user2768 I didn't flag to close, but the I could possibly see this being an individual factor question because the OP asks within the context of himself (e.g., I am doing...) rather than a broader context (e.g., What is the difference of a PhD and DCSD from an industry perspective?).

You're overthinking this. I've made that same mistake before. Nothing bad happened to me.
