Jamie’s link made me laugh so much I’m putting it on the main page for other unfortunate soon-to-defend their PhDs to enjoy: Things Not To Do During Your Defence.

Kissing the thesis when the guests clink their glasses with their spoons is quite a touching thought, really.]

    Before you send off that cover letter and job application, it’s a good idea to complete your thesis defense first.
