How not to go about writing you PhD thesis

I've done what is perhaps a very silly thing. I've accepted a post-doc position which starts on the the 12th of November. It is today the 22nd of October. I have yet to finish my thesis. In truth, I had yet to start writing my thesis in earnest before last Tuesday. It is a condition of my starting the post-doc that I have submitted my thesis.

Fucknuts.

I've managed to wrangle them to let me start if I've finished the writing, allowing a couple of weeks for proof reading and binding. Over the next three weeks there will be no poorly wirtten things about science, and there won' t be any Science Singles, but there may well be the incomprehensible twitterings of an inceasingly more desparate writing up student.

I'll see you on the other side.
