    Leeroy – My thought exactly. Never took human sexuality, but imagine the in-depth analysis of anatomy and culture would be interesting for about two weeks.

    Funny, but that was the way of all courses— interesting in the general principles but tedious in the detail. Yet now I see that those who master the details are the ones who succeed.
