Happy Birthday Karsten!!

How come you DIDN'T think about starting your own lab BEFORE going through the application process and getting an offer? I would ban people with such doubts from applying for faculty positions for a couple of years until they know what they want in life - to clear the way for those who DO know (and didn't get that offer because it went to you)...

I don't know anybody in your shoes who doesn't feel the same way -- it's just natural when you think of leaving this plush single minded-ness that defines life as a postdoc/fellow. That said, universities are wonderful places! When fall comes and the students return, big white tents go up on the quad for the alumni, and you get to rub shoulders with people who do entirely different things... it keeps you fresh.
