    PhD funny

    I am currently working on the results section of my thesis. After 11 hours in a windowless room in Australian summer heat staring at a computer screen yesterday I came home needing to laugh at something. I love PhD comics, and this one seemed particularly relevant to my work/life at the moment. Just thought I'd share the giggle (though I appreciate that not everyone is likely to be 'into' statistics-related humour...).

    Yes, that made me laugh too - along with the whole 'dull hypothesis' thing - until I remembered that I'm running the final analyses on my data next week and I may have to do some very creative writing hard work if things don't go according to plan...

    Yay! My F'd ratios and p(in my pants) values came out (mostly) as I was hoping they would!

    Congratulations, Meg. That's no "mean" feat. Now you can proceed with the rest of your data analyses and ensure that there's no deviation (standard or not) from the path toward completing your dissertation and graduating (post haste, post hoc, but definitely not Post Canada).

    Nicely done. Very impressed.

    I have to give a presentation next month, so post haste is definitely right!!

    I'm not sure about the bitter remorse part, though...
