Happy Birthday Rosalie!
Just dropped in to provide some comic relief courtesy of my last day ever of undergrad classes (
Today's topic for discussion in Brain and Behaviour was.... (drumroll please)...
Now, understand that zombies are a legit part of the voodoo religious system, and that was what we were discussing, but when a serious science-based psychology professor announces that "Today we will be discussing zombies," much hilarity ensues. For example, notes from the board:
How to Recognize a Zombie:
1. vacant/absentminded expression and absentminded actions
3. peculiar vocal tone, resulting from having been dead
And, my very favorite ever "If you take anything from this class, remember this one thing" moment:
Never, EVER, give a zombie salt.
Now, I can finish my college career knowing that not a single topic has been left untouched, because I have had an actual, serious, scientific discussion regarding zombies in class.
Unfortunately, we did not cover surviving a zombie attack, but I'm seriously considering an article for my non-knitting blog, regarding steps to increase your survival in case of apocalyptic zombie attack (voodoo zombies may be used for good or evil by their creators, and also don't travel in packs, so they are less likely to be a problem than the kind seen in movies).
