Monday random

1. Today my Epidemiology prof actually did say "copulation." Two minutes later he said "calculation." I know the difference only through context clues.

2. Saturday my roomies and I had a "pink drinks" party, and I caved and bought a Cosmo magazine when I made the ingredients run. I was reading one of the "articles" which quoted a psychology professor. The next one quoted a sociologist. I'm just wondering - if you're a professional academic, what do you do when Cosmo calls? I understand that exchange between the "academic" and real worlds is important, but what if someone Googles you and finds that? What if someone on the tenure committee sees it?
