“Self-selection” isn’t enough to explain this…

In 1970 this fact was clear.. and no one disputed it. Psychology department was dominated by weirdo’s who were nominal "professors". Most students took the classes because it took so little effort and thought to ace the class.
The "psychology" department is really a kind of petri dish containing people who generally lacked any ability to attempt truly rigorous study, needed "social science credits", or were confused about who and what there were all about and figured these self important loons had the answer. Lotsa dopers "enrolled".
I took the class to fulfill a "graduation requirement".. didn’t go to class.. studied my girlfriends notes.. and earned an A. What a joke.
