I started my Intro to Forensic Science Class last night. As if the hands-on part wasn't awesome enough (running field test screenings for marijuana, heroin and methamphetamines) the teacher - a forensic chemist with the DEA - is a pretty funny guy. The quote of the night was regarding our textbook, authored by Richard Saferstein:
"I used to work with Dr. Saferstein so I know that this is a good reference text, but you won't want to miss any of the lectures because the guest speakers will teach you more than this book ever could. You're not going to get near as much information from just the readings. Do any of you know Dr. Saferstein? (students shake heads) Good, then you can't tell him what I just said!"

It's gonna be a great class.

That's funny - Reminds me of days in college when class "notes" were more a record of stupid things professors said than actual things we were supposed to learn!
