You SERIOUSLY, with a straight face, typed that you wanted someone to edit your novel for $25......

Bud, you take the Craigslist idiot cake. You really do. I have seen some pretty low lowball ads in here, but you just took it to a whole 'nother level of low.


WTF? I mean it. What the hell is in your crack pipe?


Tell you what. Why don't you hike your ass over here paint my house for $45. The whole thing, front yard to back yard. Two stories. Don't forget the garage.


No, better yet. Hope about you rebuild my Explorer transmission for $62.


Or, can you replace all the plumbing in my house for $87.46


And then, when you are done, I'll edit your fucking novel for $25.


You people... I swear...

The 15 Strangest College Courses In America

Oh good, more stuff for jocks to take.

14. Underwater Basket Weaving



Yes, it actually exists, both at UC San Diego and at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Underwater basket weaving involves making wicker baskets by dipping reeds or stalks of plants into water, and letting them soak. Full body immersion is optional.

11. The Art of Walking



This Centre College, Kentucky offering might sound like the epitome of college fluff, but it’s actually a class dealing with Immanuel Kant’s “Critique of Judgment.” The course offers a mixture of lectures and walks around the Danville, Kentucky area including strolls through “nature preserves, battlefields, cemeteries, the nearby Shaker Village, campuses and farms.” Students are also given freelance walking assignments in addition to more traditional college work like reading and term papers.

9. Joy of Garbage



The Joy of Garbage is a Santa Clara University course that actually deals with real science through the lens of garbage. Students study decomposition and the chemicals that give garbage an unpleasant odor, and they also learn about sustainability when it comes to the things we throw away. Classes don’t just study household garbage either; there’s also a section on nuclear waste. And topping things off there are even field trips, with students visiting local sanitation plants and landfills.

7. Zombies in Popular Media



Here’s one that people are dying to take: The History of Zombies in Popular Media at Columbia College in Chicago. Lest you think it’s just about zombie movies, it should be emphasized that the course also covers the history of voodoo in Haiti and video games like Resident Evil.

4. Simpsons and Philosophy



This one isn't surprising, as you’ve got a twenty-year-old show with fairly intellectual material and a main character with the name of “Homer.” UC-Berkeley claims this isn’t at all a dumbed-down class, but a rigorous philosophical course. The text of the class is the book The Simpsons and Philosophy: The D’oh of Homer, which features weighty questions such as “Can Nietzsche’s rejection of traditional morality justify Bart’s bad behavior?”.

3. Far Side Entomology



The comic strip “The Far Side” featured a rich universe filled with interesting animals and bugs. Oregon State professor Michael Burgett uses the comic strip as a teaching tool to explore interactions between humans and insects. Says Burgett, “The anthropomorphism in the cartoons makes an immediate connection between insects and people … Students take those connections farther, connecting to ideas and relationships they wouldn’t have imagined in a straight systematics course.”
