Just to remind myself how important it is to treat my thesis with the utmost diligence, the following is a series of encouraging words from the comments section of Pharyngula:
“Spelling and grammatical errors are not acceptable at the college level, and neither is laziness.”
“Learn the difference between ‘their,’ ‘there,’ and ‘their’.”
“Your thesis is provocative, but you don’t have enough support for it. Being witty isn’t good enough — you must back your ideas up.”
“You’re a bright young man, but you will not be allowed to skate by simply because of that, or because I’m fond of you. You can do better.”
I feel so low. I must never do this again (when it happens).
