All Anthropology 1xx class did for me was to create the basis for my recurring 'Showed up for the mid-term unprepared' dream.
It's true, my study habits were poor for that class. We surely do demand a lot from our collegiate educational experience these days. We demand it to be 'fun.' Is this antithetical to the idea of formal education? Probably.
I always envisioned Anthro as being a lot more bad-a$$, e.g. as in getting to wear a fedora, whip and pistol. Don't cha' think?
