Thursday Thirteen!

Thirteen Strange College Courses!
Some of them look like they’d be fun, though. LOL!
1. Underwater Basketweaving
I thought my hubby was kidding about this class until I saw it’s actually abailable at UC San Diego!

2. Buffy Studies
Would have loved this class in college!

3. Finding Dates Worth Keeping aka Dating 101
Who couldn’t use this calss in college, right?!

4. The Science of Harry Potter
Would have loved this class, too, but Harry Potter didn’t come out until after I graduated.

5. Myth and Science Fiction in Star Wars, the Matrix and Lord of the Rings
Yeah, I would have liked this class, too.

6. Maple Syrup, The Real Thing
Wonder if you get pancakes with it.

7. The Art of Walking
While good exercise, I’m not sure if this should be a college class.

8. Cyberporn and Society
So, they sit around watching porn all day and learn something from it?
Uh-huh.

9. Daytime Serials and the Role Soap Operas Play in Daily Life
O-kay.

10. The Science of Star Trek
Fun, yes. Education, probably not so much.

11. The Science of Superheroes
The study of physics using superheroes
Kind of cool.

12. Learning from YouTube
The study of how YouTube videos influence culture.

13. Zombies in Popular Media
Maybe I should tell then they should study DEAD SEXY, my upcoming book from Ellora’s Cave in this class.

Ooohhh….several of those I'd have loved to take. Why did I get stuck with "The Early Novel" and "Nineteenth Century Lit?" lol!

I'm thinking maybe the walking class is under phys ed, in which case, I would definitely have prefered that to the health course I had to take. And I did study Star Wars in a class section on mythology.

Star Trek actually has quite a lot of really good physics and biology.

As for walking, if Weight Lifting or Running can be a course, I don't see why Walking can't be the same.

I certainly took some fun ones in college. None of the really cool ones, though.

Wait, don't most college guys have a degree in porn already?

I could ace some of those classes myself come to think of it.

Although some of these sound like fun, they can't be real classes.

I mean – there are parents who paid MONEY for their kids to take these classes? I had to beg mine to let me take Calc 3 over …
