More fun from ex-supervisor

Tonight we all had dinner together because a guest professor is here.

Ex-supervisor said that he once had dinner together with Kurt Gödel. I was very surprised because Kurt Gödel died from anorexia nervosa (due to paranoia, he thought everyone wanted to poison him) in 1978.
And I told him.

Over the week end, he switched from friendliness to viciousness. At the dinner, he told the guy sitting next to me that he will teach a course next term with another grad student. This grad student is not doing our work but a different subject. And, really, if ex-supervisor is to co-teach next term, the logical companion would be me.

Then he he said, again to the guy sitting next to me, that he will organize a workshop at our next conference in fall. This workshop includes all topics from various subjects except mine.

I'm not very hurt by this behaviour. Rather, I think that this guy is an absolute idiot and asshole and that I did absolutely the right thing changing supervisors. And I am happy that ex-supervisor makes it so easy for me. I don't have any doubts anymore.
