I think she said it was sociology. Just boils my blood. I always wondered how so many people can beleive stupid crap like this? Where does it come from? I feel like I've found the sausage factory... Wish I could shut it down.

Maybe the professor was talking about how beliefs/myths/urban legends in society are formed and your friend took it at face value--and not via the correct intent: i.e. this is how people believe things or how belief in various things are perpetuated by society?

I minored in Sociology in college and I had a few professors who had some out of the box teaching methods. If this professor really did mean all of the things he/she was saying and was not trying to creatively teach a topic by illustrating how incorrect belief systems are perpetuated, then hopefully your friend will have a moment of enlightenment and drop the class.

Wasn't me.

There is literally noone suffering at the hands of crappy weather more on this planet than me.
Are you sure. I have the sun glaring right in my screen. I don't have any curtains yet I've only lived here for ten years.

Takes a while t get clear moved in? I've been here just since Christmas and yesterday I got a shower curtain installed!

Why the fuck do I keep agreeing to these 10 hour day security shifts?
I mean tomorrow's a public holiday so time and a half so I get like $30 an hour, $300 for a days work, but the other two days?
I must have a worm eating my brain. Nurse where you at gurl?

I took a sociology class, in a private art school. I really hope that's not typical, and I imagine it isn't, and certainly wasn't indicative of my experience with the course.
