The Dissertation Zombie is the result of a disease found in Universities across the UK. They have a pale, tired complexion and often are seen pulling hair out of their head. The condition is caused by extreme stress during a third year of a degree where upon a student might have to write the dreaded “Dissertation”. The condition includes symptoms such as inability to stop talking about the dissertation, inability to talk about upcoming deadlines, extreme procrastination, increasing amount of time spent in bed, glassy stares, large rings under the eyes and an addiction to Disney films.
The only known cure is to implement the phase called “Hand-in”. This is a dangerous phase; the zombie may worsen temporarily and then will recover suddenly, going back to being “normal” student.
If you find yourself surrounded by dissertation zombies, shout out loudly “How is your abstract coming along” and then run away in the confusion.
