A new Tumblr blog asks graduate and undergraduate students to submit their thesis in one sentence. Some cannot keep it to strictly one sentence, but that's all right, as long as it's short. The thing is, ask anyone about their thesis and they'll either talk your ear off or say it's too complicated to explain. When boiled down to one line, they become completely ridiculous. For example:
All I care about is food and I found a way to make it vaguely sociological.
When you collect oral folklore from your Southern family, you find out creepy things.
I spent 372 pages describing what Kafka meant by everything he didn’t write.
The government hiring people is a good way to bring down unemployment; we stopped doing it because we are stupid.
I stared at kids playing videogames to prove that kids like playing videogames.
