My Thesis Grandpa

I recently discovered that Noam Chomsky is my thesis grandpa.  Noam Chomsky is the phd thesis advisor of my MA thesis advisor, thus, my thesis grandpa.  Overall, this situation causes me great stress and further pressure while in the thesis writing process.  If you don’t know Noam Chomsky, you can look him under:

Linguistics, father of

See what I mean?  Adds a fair amount of pressure.  Fabulous thesis?  Has the potential to be sent to Noam.  Shoddy thesis?  End of future career as a linguist.  What happens if I just want to turn in a normal thesis?
