"Piled Higher and Deeper" by Jorge Cham www.phdcomics.com
Submission. That's an interesting word. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as:
- The act of submitting to the power of another.
- The state of having submitted.
- The state of being submissive or compliant; meekness.
- The act of submitting something for consideration.
Am I relinquishing power or being meek and compliant by handing in my thesis? Does Nature (or the examiner committee as an agent thereof) have control of my future? Or am I thinking too much?
