hey just as a psa

this june coursera is running their greek & roman mythology class again which hasn’t run since september of 2012 and if you want to get into classics, even just in a tangential way, PLEASE take this class, it’s so great and wonderful and the readings are great and the professor is very passionate about the subject, please at least check it out 

i wouldn’t recommend it for people who are already Very Classics since it’s pretty entry level??? but for people who don’t know much about it, please go look at that

reblogging from my main blog because i think people need to know about this. this class is what got me seriously into classics as a study and not just as a passing interest, and if you’re interested in learning about greek myth but don’t know where to start or find the source texts hard to process, i HIGHLY recommend this class.

Seconded. This is a great intro class.

Fucking fuckers

me: (out shopping, looking all fly with my Marvel comics tote bag featuring several characters)

dude: nice bag.

me: thanks. (keeps on shopping)

dude: do you even know who all those characters are?

me: uh… yeah?

dude: ok then, who’s that guy? (points at a character on the bag)

me:

me: wait, are you asking me to prove that I’m enough of a fan enough to carry this bag?

dude: (smirks) that’s what I thought. He’s called the Silver Surfer. I bet you don’t even know his real name.

me: does it matter? (starts to edge away before I start punching throats)

dude: psh, you’re not a real fan.

me:

me: (slowly unsheathing my Wolverine claws)

me: how many pairs of chromosomes do humans contain in their cells?

dude: uh… what?

me: explain the function of cellular mitosis?

dude:

me: what is the purpose of myelin sheath with regards to the formation of new neural pathways?

dude: what are you even talking about?

me: oh, well it seemed that you were implying that if I don’t know as much about the Marvel universe as you do, then I can’t possibly be considered a real fan. This is me implying that because you don’t know as much about the human body as I do, you can’t possibly be considered a real human being.

dude:

dude: Um, I… wow. You’re right. Have a nice day. (starts to shuffle away)

me: his name is Norrin Radd.

dude: (looks extremely embarrassed)
