How to feel like an idiot

If you want to feel like an idiot, major in family studies and then go to a biology lecture. All I know is that the lady introducing the lecturer said “I just thought bacterial mutation sounded like fun,” and at that point I knew I was one hundred percent out of my element. I just sat there trying to take notes for my 1 page write up, but in reality I was starting at the brains of the people around me wondering what was going on in there. Did they understand? Had they really taken enough biology classes that these words went together in an understandable way in their heads? What was different about their brains than mine? There were times when they laughed in unison. I couldn’t even fake a smile, I just repeated the line last spoken in my mind and tried to decipher the humor. Impossible. I came to a conclusion: they must be left-brainers. Or maybe their brains had something that mine is missing. The good news is that the lecture came with a free cookie, so that was cool. 
Is this funny? I don't know, But I wanted to
add it just incase any science people are reading.
A little something for everyone. 
To bring this back to a place I understand, let's showcase Makenzie's graduation announcements. Here is what she wanted: Click Here. This is what we came up with:
Yay, graduation! 


  1. Lolololol...I've wondered what it would be like to be a non-science person in some of my lectures. I've never been able to really know, but now I And they all laugh at really dumb things because they are not used to any humor in their lives. Luckily, I have Christina. However, I did look at the cat picture before I read any of the post and laughed. So I guess I am one of them? No...I just laugh really easily.

  2. Hahahaha I am dying at the cat humor... mostly because I don't understand it, and your caption on it is too good!!

  3. Haha! It was a lame chemistry joke... But I laughed! We all have our "elements" and things that are out of them. I'm glad we can be different and still be friends!

  4. The jargon of separate fields can be confusing when you don't know it.
