Wrong answer

When my supervisor asked me why I chose the order I did for three arguments in my current chapter, maybe I shouldn't have admitted that it was because that was the order in which they occurred to me.

That is what is technically known as a Bad Reason.

It is for this reason and many more that I chose not to pursue Honours. My thesis would have had 'Clearly Biased' written all over it.

For some reason that post struck me as hilarious. I think it's because I'm picturing a styleygeek fake-guilty face (even though I don't know what you look like).

hehe, quite funny. though i bet if you had made up a reason it would not have been a question.

This happened to me once, only it was why I had ordered categories along the x-axis of a graph and my answer was that it was alphabetical. The look I got, uuf, let me tell you!
But I am stubborn and the graph has remained the same.
