As a guy whose general-ed, intro-astronomy course for non-majors involves Greek mythology, the beginning of modern science (including Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, all of whom lived in the West), evolution (human, biological and stellar), and the Big Bang, I am living on a volcano.
I also teach that class and live on that volcano.
Uh, it is the Onion, after all.
The irony is that the headline is some really good advice for proffies - warn the class that it'll take awhile to get the hang of this trigger warning thingie.
Holy crap! I meant to comment on the thread about proffies skipping class, not this hilarious Onion article. I should never post pre-coffee.
