* FAQ: The “Snake Fight” Portion Of Your Thesis Defense.

Q: Do I have to kill the snake?

A: University guidelines state that you have to “defeat” the snake. There are many ways to accomplish this. Lots of students choose to wrestle the snake. Some construct decoys and elaborate traps to confuse and then ensnare the snake. One student brought a flute and played a song to lull the snake to sleep. Then he threw the snake out a window.

Thanks Tim.

  1. In re: LOL Denialists!: Who are the real idiots – the ones who push false claims, spread disinformation, make sloppy errors and cover their tracks simply by repeating themselves over and over again, hammer home a message no matter how stupid it is? or the ones who think that, if only they keep a high standard of truth and rationality, their side will win out in the end?
