Remember that thesis of doom?
Got it back today and it turns out my primary reader (aka prof who grades it) is either senile or just plain didn't read it.

Quite honestly I liked the subject, I liked the research I did, I just wasn't happy with the creation I handed in 2 weeks ago.
But I didn't fail it, through some magical intervention of the gods/goddesses, and now I must devote my life to their service.
