a pleasant heft

The thesis monster is slain.

Its always amusing to watch peoples faces when you hand them a thesis or a dissertation.

I have a committee member that grades by weight.
They hold it in their hand, gently lifting it up and down, smiling ever so slightly, as they try to figure out how many pages it is, without actually looking.

I have another commitee member that just finished his PhD less than a year ago and when I handed him his copy (hot off the press), he took it in boths hands, and said" its still warm" like I had handed him a loaf of bread.
