In need of Procrastination?

Writing about web page

But don't want to feel bad for not revising?

Then help a poor (starving) student complete their final year project and fill in this questionnaire!
Not only is it a valid and completely selfless use of your time but it will consume up to 5 minutes – yes, 5 whole minutes – of your day that would have otherwise been spent worrying about exams, a highly stressful activity that can lead to a lowering of the immune system and thus a higher risk of illness.
So complete these questions and keep avian flu at bay!
Then bask in the warm glow of altruism and endorphins that follow, oh you beautiful people…

Just copy and paste your answers into this comment box with "Evolution" as the subject, and you'll get a thankful reply from me to confirm I received it. In addition to that I will dance for joy; You may not be able to see it but rest assured I will be uncontrollably ecstatic.

(deadline for responses is the 3rd of June)


In order to use the information you give me I require two specific things:

  • a valid name and contact email. They are to reassure my examiners that the results are not forged (In the event of a dispute you may be contacted, although this is highly unlikely). These details will be kept separate from the main body of the questionnaire so that all the data can be processed anonymously. Upon receiving your completed questionnaire I will send you an email to confirm this. You may withdraw your data at any time by replying to the email or contacting me at this address.

  2. Where does one sign up for this glow??? Does it replace the dullness of engineering revision?

  3. Yes, I am part of the "legend" subspecies of humanoid, pretty similar to average homosapiens but with an extra shot of awesome (or tequila)

    I could provide a signup list I guess, but if it hasn't set in yet then I would advise to follow this plan of attack: Bake some cookies and then munch away happily while watching top gear. That's what I intend to do, It should provide sufficient glow for a few hours of painless revision.

  4. Painless revision… there is no such thing.

  5. I love not having exams. Haha.

    Have I done your survey already Mia? I know you've posted about it before… let me know!

  6. Simon – git, git, git. You should be suffering ES480 just for that comment.

    Hey Mia, as I have filled in your questionnaire and live with you, I have a simple request: please save your dance so I can see it! :) P.S. loving the cookies – these are the best batch yet! See you downstairs! x
