WTF???

Who studies these things?  How much money was wasted on this study?  And who fucking cares about why Tutenkhamun was mummified with a stiffie?

Honestly, my despair at the state of academia is only partially fueled by my own discipline.

    2. H, you gotta (ok..... have to) admit something like this if rife for this sort of humor. I guess that's why he had that curse attached to his tomb for those who trespassed.

    3. Oh, I know. And I have the sense of humor of a ten-year-old boy.
