The /FINANCEPILL/ is defined as:
The realization that academia is absolutely fucked and mismanaged by the administrative class who are at fault for all the shit going on at universities but regardless pay themselves 6 figures or more while paying their professors minimum wage. Therefore the only way to get properly compensated for your intelligence and effort is to go to industry. For the more abstract subjects like physics and mathematics, this often means becoming a quant.
