academics signal their prestige by placing stacks of books and papers on their desk. the higher the stack, and the more desk surface covered by the stack, the higher the academic is ranked. when you need to get an extra table because the other one is filled with stacks of books, they make you a professor.

@Vierkantor You can also claim territory of other academics if you stack your books on their desks.

@Vierkantor I was just thinking that I need a another desk because I can't fit all my stuff on one. I hope they make me a professor soon.
