Overly-Honest Grad Papers

Graduate school students 
spend a lot of effort writing their 
thesis papers, often in arcane, smarty-pants-speak. However, a few deigned to simplify their findings:

• “Some mice lick one foot more, and some mice lick the other foot more; it depends on the mouse.” 
(Psychology, McGill University)

• “People don’t care what their subway stop is called, so it’s a good thing I stood outside in the rain and asked them.” (Urban Studies, University of Pennsylvania)

• “A kind of string theory nobody thought was true is probably not true.” (Physics, Brown University)
