I defend in two weeks, but I'll be prepared thanks to McSweeney's guide:
- Are the snakes big?
- We have lots of different snakes. The quality of your work determines which snake you will fight. The better your thesis is, the smaller the snake will be.
- Why do I have to do this?
- Snake fighting is one of the great traditions of higher education. It may seem somewhat antiquated and silly, like the robes we wear at graduation, but fighting a snake is an important part of the history and culture of every reputable university.
