The Biggest "Gut" Course I Ever Had! You?

Before you tell me yours, let me reveal what the easiest class I had in college was, way back in the Middle Ages.

It was such a breeze I barely had to even stay awake during it.

It was art history!

I'm not saying there isn't a lot of intricacy and know-how involved in that subject, but I found the class a no-brainer, seeing as it mainly involved memorizing images and absorbing the backstories behind them, along with some knowledge of the trends they represented.

I found myself scoring really well on the tests and papers even though my only previous background in art history was attempting some Paint by Numbers landscapes and admiring Keane portraits on velvet.

Almost as easy was a Theater Arts class I had, where we sat around and simply talked about how to put on a production!

My term paper on how I would mount a revival of Thornton Wilder's Our Town was such a "gut" process that I almost felt like I was jerking off all over Grover's Corners.

Getting a credit for passing that class with honors brought on a weird sensation of guilt, almost as if I had stolen something from the university, but on reflection I felt I'd earned it, having sat through impossibly tough bouts of Contemporary Civilization and Humanities (not to mention being thrown into the pool my first week on campus).

And what was your gut?

Class, that is.

Studying my Bachelor of Arts (Political Science & History) at the University of New South Wales in Sydney Australia. I would have to say the "bludge subject" Religion & Terror which was taken as a General Education from the Faculty of Law...so, so, easy, I fell asleep every morning and still passed

Ahhh the memories.

First-Aid. Really. A "Phys-Ed" course, yes, in college.

Turns out, a month before graduation, I was informed that although I'd successfully completed all the required courses for my major (theater, natch), I was 3 credits short of the required 180, no matter what major. I could "graduate" with everyone else in May, but I would have to do a summer term (it's short)...hence the 8am first-aid class, me, generally hung-over and nodding off...except the day when they showed a film of what to do in case of emergency childbirth.

We were all awake for this one since the camera was pointed right at the vajayjay....monotone clinical narration..."and when the contractions are [whatever] minutes apart, the amniotic sac, or 'bag of waters' will break"...BAM!!! on cue, there it was gushing straight at us!  The entire class let out an OMG!!  5 min later, still in close-up, after-birth.

I couldn't get a drink quick enough.
