That's Dr. Falstaff to you

5 years

= STATA + JSTOR + rewrites + conference presentations + the annual caffeine output of a medium-sized Colombian plantation

= 49,000 words + 300 references + 24 tables

= 15 slides + 1 hour defense

= 1 dissertation, signed and delivered.

And it's barely lunchtime.

Congrats!! Now only to turn it into a best-selling novel, complete with suicidal regressions and despairing tables.

n!

ps: i hope it was all in verse.

Does this mean you're now free to vent more thoroughly? Or that all the Falsieness has drained away with the completion of this feat?

Congratulations indeed.
