I have yet to mention that Chris has asked me to proofread his thesis. I’m a Supervisor. Not just a regular visor, mind you. A Supervisor. So that’s pretty cool.

What, exactly, does this mean? It means I am reading Evaluation of Saw Marks From Postmortem Dismemberment: A research project submitted to National University in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Forensic Sciences, by R. Christopher O’Brien. And let me tell ya: scintillating reading. No, really. The paper contains nuggets like, “Teeth are also characterized by their “ranker” which is the lateral bending of the teeth,” and, “Each bone was then placed individually in a large pot and covered with room temperature tap water.”
The last time I visited Chris in San Diego (La Jolla), he had a multitude of partially decayed bovine long bones in his freezer and scattered throughout the kitchen. If that’s not just plain cool, I don’t know what is.
