Bloody hippies

Anna (Dragondazd) drags me along to her "Ecosystemology" class today. It turns out to be a bunch of students in a room on the other side of Berkeley putting on little plays based on bits of "Godel, Escher, Bach", and having discussions about the nature of the Universe.

I spent the latter half of the class wanting to stand up and insult everyone by calling them a bunch of stupid hippies. It had turned into this annoying game of "profounder than thou", where everyone was trying to score profundity points by expressing the way a sticky-tape dispenser fit into the scheme of living things, and how sometimes, rocks can be more alive than people.

Get a grip.
