I gave the hepatotoxicology lecture today at Texas A&M at Galveston. I was on cold medicine and still somewhat stuffed up, but I did okay I guess. Anyway it's done, I got a lot of laughs from a lot of folks, now I need to grade their assignments, and write up a couple of essay questions for their second exam. These people flat-out flopped on my first exam questions so I'm not exactly placing bets on them this time around. Science essay questions.. surely the bane of any lecturer. I will have to get out my new pair of hip-waders to keep the bullshit and cruft from sticking to me as I look for truth, or maybe a metal pipe to brace the walls so they don't close in on me and squish me as I yell "3PO! THREEEE PEEE OOOHH!!" into the communicator.
