Equally blessed and cursed

Another first today- I had a student who claimed to be able to detect spirits and ghosts by means of her "sixth sense." When questioned, she reassured us that there were no ghosts in the room.

My sixth sense, which detects morons, was not so sanguine.

Anyway, all this business about needing some kind of sixth sense to detect a ghost is a complete crock: what about the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Ghostbusters? Even without psychic powers, you could see that thing a mile off, because it was bloody huge.

My two Japanese words for the day:

norou- to put a curse on someone or something
noroma- a dullard or blockhead
