Today I only had one class, History of Eastern Europe. A class of 40 students. The Anthropology lab was cancelled.
The professor seems totally on game and it appears this is going to be one more great class.
The first thing the professor said was the class really should be titled History of Central Europe. which of course makes total sense. After all we don’t divide the USA into anything east of the Mississippi as Eastern USA and the other half as Western USA. Naturally there are more segments for a country so large. For instance, Eastern, Central and Western Fly Over Country. And the same holds true for Europe.
Yesterday I shared with you the egg came before the chicken, today we learned that Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, the Slavic states and on and on are not Eastern Europe but Central Europe. Pull that bit of knowledge out at your next kegger and you might be upgraded to a wine tasting.
Still no word on a cure for hair loss at the great research facility the U of MN is, but I am keeping my eye peeled. Eye peeling hurts but I’m doing it for you.
And now the bad news.
Yours truly took his first online quiz for Anthropology. There are twelve quizzes which account for 15% of my grade. So it looks like I am down 1.3%. If this were The Hunger Games, I wouldn’t even sweat.
I got an 80% out of 100%. Two answers were wrong. The one I understand. The other not so much. The first question was “Is Barbie anatomically correct?” and I selected, “Don’t we wish.”
The other was on the Humerus articulating with the Glenoid Fossa and I picked Glenoid Campbell. I guess that was wrong, but he sure played a wicked guitar.
Sorry to let you down. I promise to do better next time. Tomorrow is a repeat of classes from Day One. Friday, no classes at all, so I’ll be down at Stub & Herb’s. Stop by.
