We all had learnt Newton’s famous three laws of motion in highschool physic, which all of us accepted as universal truth since then. (Well, at least in non-nano, non-quantum scale). Now someone has discovered the long lost Newton’s three laws of graduation. I think that can explain why I’m still stucked with my degree right now.
First Law: A grad student in procrastination tends to stay in procrastination unless an external force is applied to it
Second Law: The age, a of a doctroal process is directly proportional to the flexibility, f, given by the advisor and inversely proportional to the student’s motivation, m
Thrid Law: For every action towards graduation there is an equal and opposite distraction
