lord of the rings - dramatisation of a phd.

terrific story about how frodo gets his "phd". (via camilla)

choice quote:

"After Frodo has completed his first project, Gandalf (along with head of department Elrond) proposes that the work should be extended. He assembles a large research group, including visiting students Gimli and Legolas, the foreign postdoc Boromir, and several of Frodo's own friends from his undergraduate days."
