World Literature Final Extravaganza

While preparing for my world lit final exam, I used the study sheet prepared by the professor to aid in memorizing facts about Livy, Tacitus, Cicero, Epictetus, Justin Martyer, and many others.

Upon receiving the exam, one of the first questions I saw was similar to (but not the same as) the following:

Which masterwork featured the character Gilgamesh?
A. The Odyssey
B. The Aeneid
C. The Epic of Gilgamesh

I’m so glad I studied into the wee hours of the morning for this thing. I can’t decide whether to be happy or depressed.

New slang word of the day

Titanic: To fail horribly and miserably at something. An epic failure.

“Some guy in the dorm burned popcorn, set off the smoke detectors, and got the building evacuated. It was titanic.”

“Man, I totally titanisized on that test today.”
