Nothing should take 160,000 words to explain given that PhDs are focused on such a minute, specific topic. Plus if you need that many words you're demonstrating that you're pretty poor at communicating your ideas.

I guess my capstone project was a ring binder. So that's about 400 pages. Half of that was tech stuff, metocean data, designs, and there were 4 of us working on it for a year.

Mine was only 29k <roll> . To be fair most of the content is stuff you need but isn't important, theory, literature review, experimental details. the actual analysis bit is short (mainly charts). My two analyses were like 2000 words total.

Problem is if you do loads of different experiment variations, you technically need to describe them all... The examiner checks its there but never readss it....

My father-in-law law is 70 this year and has just finished writing his thesis. He'd always wanted to do a PhD but never had the opportunity with work etc getting in the way so when he retired he thought f*** it and cracked on with it! I think fees for PhDs aren't as high as undergraduate or master's courses either. Something like £4,500 a year.

A new sporting low.

Curling has been tainted with doping.

I used to think that Test Cricket was boring and went on and on, the curling seems to have been on for about 10 days - doesn't it ever end?

I'm thinking of creating a new gin flavour using toasted hay.

Not sure what other flavour I'd try and blend in with it though.

I've been tasked with panic buying from the supermarket on the way home tonight.

The family will have to live off water biscuits for the rest of the week.

Well I've taken my first delivery of Huel, and will be looking to replace breakfast and lunch for a couple of weeks to see how it goes. No doubt I'll be shitting my guts out about 15 times a day <gent>.
