    That is a great article. I remember reading this way back when, but as an anthropologists I still love this article.

    I just red this article in sociology last week it is a pretty funny view on the subject. How long did it take you to figure out what it was about?

    I had it figured out by the end of the second paragraph, but that might have something to do with my field of study.

    I read it back when I was in high school. I read the entire thing before putting much thought into it. Then I figured it out, and re-read it again.

    What caught my eye was the topic titlle. Being attuned to anagrams and spelling of words backwards, it hit me right away. I skimmed the article and saw what I thought was a reference to a hospital. There's probably more allusions...
