How Long Should A Thesis Be and Jellyfish Gangs
How long should a thesis be?
It's like asking , "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie-roll pop?"
In my program, theses range from 100 pages (including references, copyright page, etc.) to 400 pages.
So I guess one could answer the two questions in the same manner: It depends on who is doing the licking.
Alright, now on to more important things.
Thanks to William the Coroner, we now know what to call a group of jellyfish. It's a "smack".
Makes perfect sense, if you don't think about it.
He was also kind enough to give us a handy reference sheet so we no longer make fools of ourselves when discussing wildlife in plural terms. All this time I've been referring to a "sloth" of bears and a clusterf***. Actually, I think that I usually refer to most things as a clusterf***. That is because I'm trying to finish this stupid thesis and I'm very hostile. Now, however, I won't have to refer to such vulgarities.
Thank you, our body dissecting friend.
