Brains, Complex, and Fucking: fuckingflying I hate linguistic anthropology. Why? One of the most influential experiments in linguistic anthropology involved teaching a chimp asl. One of the most influential linguistics is named Noam Chomsky. You know what the chimp's name was? Nim Chimpsky Fucking monkey purn And this is in textbooks, in documentaries, everywhere. And everyone just IGNORES THIS GOD AWFUL PUN cause of how important the experiment was. But BUT LOOK AT THIS SHIT. FUCKING NIM CHIMPSKY. I HATE THIS WHOLE FIELD. dendritic-trees Its not just the linguistic anthropologists. There's a group of very important genes that determine if your body develops in the right shape/ organization... they are called the hedgehog genes, because fruit fly geneticists are all ridiculous. The different hedgehog genes are all named after different hedgehogs. And then someone decided to get clever and name one "sonic hedgehog" because this is just what fruitfly geneticists do. Well sonic hedgehog controls brain development, and now actual doctors are stuck in the position of explaining to grieving parents that their child's lethal birth defects or life-threatening tumors are caused by a "sonic hedgehog mutation". And this is why no one will invite the fruit fly people to parties error-404-fuck-not-found Biogeochemical scientists, upon discovering the complex mechanisms that govern the storage and use of molecular iron on our planet, decided to call this cycle "the ferrous wheel" We groaned about that for at least five solid minutes. callmegallifreya The phenomenon of sneezing when exposed to sudden bright light is called an Autosomal-dominant Compelling Helio Opthalmic Outburst. ACHOO Half a byte of data is a nibble. theactualcluegirl An unidentified, repetitive computer error is called a Bug, because the first one of those they discovered to be the fault of a moth fluttering against the vacuum tubes I think we need to admit that academics and engineers are lonely, stressed people whose brains go funny places when deprived of sleep and fed too much coffee instead sonic hedgehog

Because of this, at the end of the fifth year after the LAMP (Levels of Aptitude in Magical Performance) tests are administered, students are brought into a meeting with a counselor (often their Head of House) to discuss possible career futures. Some of the “required” classes for these two years can be dropped based on the schedule and agenda of the student in question, as well as their LAMP test scores. Image Source

Dude, Life, and Love: Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw Watching Thor: Ragnorok and never get tired of hearing Bruce Banner brag about his 7 PhDs like it's a sign of brilliance and not just poor career planning, dude. Like, maybe do the one PhD and then some postdocs, guy Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw And can you imagine being on his committee SEVEN TIMES? I mean, sure, seven different advisors, but he must have dragged at least one poor faculty member across all those committees he had to put together. Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw And I really feel for his seventh advisor. Like you have to know this dude doesn't even love your discipline that much. He picked it last! He's obviously just going for the seventh because it has a far nicer ring that "that Banner guy with the 6 PhDs" Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw Addendum: tney do tnis with Charies Xavier, too. Check out his Wikipedia page under the POWERS & ABILITIES SECTION Charles is a genius with multiple doctorates. He is a world-renowned geneticist, a leading expert in mutation, possesses considerable knowledge of various life sciences, and is the inventor of CerebroHe possesses Ph.D.s in Genetics, Biophvsics, Psychologv, and Anthropology, and an M.D. in Psychiatry. He is highly talented in Joshua Raclaw @joshraclaw That last part where the screenshot is cut off reads "he is highly talented in writing application letters." rustandruin: Has anyone written something about the Marvel Universe’s multiple PhD holders discussing their academic experiences? Because I would read the heck out of that.

To put it simply, the Jewish Boasian school of Anthropology suggested wrongly, that 'race was a social construct' not rooted in biology or scientific determinism."

Please help report this. This is the first thing that comes up on google and it’s unacceptable! Archaeologist problems: When some lame Wordpress page insults Franz Boas with racist bullshit. (For my followers not in the know: Franz Boas is basically the progenitor of North American schools of anthropology. He determined correctly that race is a social construct wherein we have created separate categories for physical and cultural traits that actually exist on a spectrum with no true biological boundaries.) I provided feedback to google that this is the wrong answer, and I encourage my followers to run this search and do the same thing. Let’s not forget that Boas:: Was a German-American Jewish immigrant who hated Nazis.  Like.  HATED Nazis and Hitler.  And when everyone else was making noises about how Hitler wasn’t so bad, he’d calm down, etc. - Boas was publishing article after article about what a monster Hitler was and how he should be removed immediately.   At the time Boas was beginning his career, Anthropologists had been incorrectly using skull measurements to determine who was what race and then participate in the associated racism that is innate to the Great Chain of Being (<– idea that society is a progression from grass hut to modern western society.  Has been debunked over and over, but it’s pervasiveness still shows in many still popular cultural ideas.).  Boas was so ticked off by both the racism and the lack of scientific integrity inherent in the skull measuring that his ass traipsed all over and measured *thousands* of skulls - the largest study ever of the subject - and not only debunked the correlation between race and skull measurements, but proved that skull sizes could be influenced by environment and weren’t even genetically dictated.  He was like “me and my 12,000 skulls say fuck you and the racist horse you rode in on.”   Debunked the Great Chain of Being - or the idea that culture is a strict progression.   He was involved with the early NAACP - his writings can be found in their early publications.   His influence on social perceptions of race helped end the Jim Crow laws.   Really hated the lack of scientific integrity in anthropology at the time, hence his role in the founding of the current 4-field approach of American anthropology (Cultural anthro, physical anthro, archaeology, and linguistics.).  He was extremely prolific and had a lot of great connections so he had lots of influence.  He not only approved of women having a place in academia, he mentored several, including one of the most famous anthropologists: Margaret Mead.   And, yeah, he correctly determined that race is a social construct based on phenotypical characteristics not a biological reality.   He had a PhD in physics before coming to anthropology and a diverse scientific background, so he had wide and varied interests.  He seems like he was a pretty cool guy.   Also notice how the source for the bullshit has an incredibly antisemitic dog whistle term as its URL. Okay as an anthropologist this makes me sick Boas is rad and someone needs to get this changed Who can I call someone tell me
