I must be pretty desperate to reach out to the pit...but it's worth a shot.

Long story short, a close friend of mine is doing a master's in International management and public policy. She has to do a thesis, but lacks the innovation or creativity to come up with a thesis topic and research question! I'd help her if I could, but I simply don't know enough of the subject matter.

So...anyone know a good research question regarding international public policy?

Finland - a bigger threat than we thought?


Seriously though if she can't come up with a topic that interests her enough for a master's she's not going to be motivated enough to finish it. She's got to find what she's really passionate about and write about that.

Sweden - Just full of people trying to find more inventive ways to insert their willies in turnips?


On topic: just ask her out. Whining around trying to help her by giving her a topic for her Masters (which clearly she does know something about or she wouldn't be doing it) is just annoying. She knows it's annoying. Ask her out.

The bit about the turnips? from fact.

The bit about the fact TS clearly has a crush on the girl? Why else would he be trying to write her Masters thesis for her? They don't just let any old moron do a Masters degree, clearly she knows her shit or she wouldn't be doing it, and he is just trying to help her to get in her pants. This is also from fact.

What are you on about? We spoke yesterday, about your massive Virgin Media bill


Anyway it wasn't really a conclusion jumped to. Let's examine the evidence.

1. TS's friend is doing a Masters degree. Presumably she's not the only one in her course, meaning....
2. She has similarly-qualified expert friends on her course she can ask for help, but instead of asking them...
3. She asked TS, who is clearly not an expert, because instead of answering her he put a thread on UG saying he knows nothing about the subject, and
4. Saying that she doesn't know anything about the course. Which clearly isn't true, because of numbers 1, 2 and 3, which means that
5. He is trying to prove he knows stuff about her field of expertise and is going out of his way to do this (see points 3 and 4)... isn't this a bit too much effort? Wouldn't you just suggest your friend asks their coursemates or their Masters supervisor? But he hasn't done this, because...
6. He is trying to valiantly provide her with a Masters topic rather than admitting he knows nothing about her topic to prove his intellectual prowess and how hard he tries to get involved in her shit.


Hmm. The evidence stacks up

State your sources.

And he's not trying to write her master thesis, he's just helping her with a topic since she's obviously too dumb to think of one herself.

How did the moon get there? You state your sources


And yeah, but she's not too dumb to get an undergraduate degree. Or to meet the entry requirements for M level work. Or to have successfully interviewed and been accepted for the course.


Elementary, my dear Kjell.

I asked first, dear Suzie. Now bring me facts about this alleged turnip coitus.

You never really know with those things. I've met people who's started their masters with no clue what to write about. Or people who are writing their master's with no clue what to write about or if they're even going to finish it.

I'm doing my bachelor's right now and I barely know what to write about.

Yeah, but would you ask someone who knows nothing about your Masters subject or would you ask a peer?

Maybe in this situation this may be true (someone doing their masters and not knowing what to do in it sounds fishy), but I hope you don't have this view for everything.
There are people in the world who gain pleasure simply from helping people and asking for nothing in return, although not getting any form of recognition for a good deed is abit of sand kicked to the face

Ah, I didn't look at your name on the Virgin Media thing. Were you the one who said the bill may be a cumulation of neglected bills? Cos apparently it's not

Should have known better asking in the pit. Carry on with business as usual.

Mistress_Ibanez, you will never know how very wrong you are. Every post you made in this thread just reeks of ignorance and retarded assumptions. Not everyone who posts here is a virgin looking for relationship advice.

Close...but she's far from dumb. Her case of asperger's just won't let her "think out of the box" sort of speak. Once she has a topic, there's no doubt she would ace it.

I have the perfect topic title (i think). It's relevant to current affairs, and quite a big issue it seems at the moment.

Should Governments re-introduce censorship to control publication of political deaths.

Basically, should the government prevent people/media from showing videos such as sadam husseins. osama bin laden and muammar gadaffi's death?
