“Natural” Selection
(SA) na, npdf
Professor(s): M. Vick

Description/Objectives:
Here we will understand what it takes to raise a champion that has what it takes to win the first time, everytime. If the bitch won’t fight, then we’ll choke it, body slam it, drown it, or shoot it – effectively killing it with death. Although some critics would call this bloodsport cruel, they have never thrown down some serious cash on the dogs of Bad Newz kennels, and are just flexing.

We will examine the basics of space and time and how we can bend them to our will. Topics to be covered include the hypersuperduperfine structure constant, unmeasurable distances, Einstein’s other other explosion equation, and use of mythical elements in construction, as well as safety tips for handling a warp core breach and protecting yourself against evil twins of the multiverse. This course includes both theoretical and practical components; students will build their own negative energy generators as part of the lab component. Prior experience in the field will be helpful, but the course assumes no preparation beyond advanced postdoctorate work in general relativity and spaceship engineering.
