Praise, after a fashion, for my fall-back career!

Also, a PhD related poll.

I keep finding out that bunches of you have done or are currently doing a PhD. We're all just a big back of brainy nerds, from what I can understand. So, I'm curious....

Poll #818812 PhD Poll

Have you ever entered into the study of some kind of PhD?

Yes, and I have completed it!
1(11.1%)
Yes, but I did not complete it (leave of absence, murdered supervisor, was expelled, etc.).
1(11.1%)
Yes, and I am currently trying to complete it. Oh Gods, make the suffering stop.
3(33.3%)
No, but I intend to enroll in one.
1(11.1%)
ARE YOU INSANE?! OF COURSE NOT!
3(33.3%)

If you have been involved in a PhD of some description, how long did it take you to complete, until you left it, or how long has it been thus far?

Do you have an approximate thesis title? Even if you've never had anything to do with a PhD? Because I'm stuck for mine, and could really use some ideas...

I guess I should have added the caveat: unless you're in the humanities, where witty wordplay is absolutely required :).

Comp Sci. No excuse :) But you're right, in the humanities, the wordplay is almost part of the assessment. The highest honour is if you can make a really bad pun and get away with it.
