I took Astronomy as an elective. It was supposed to be an introductory class for non-scientists. Tests involved some math and charting stuff, which was already way beyond my skill level. Had to plead with the instructor and defend my position as a math boob. It went roughly like:
Me - The last time I did math was in high school.
Him - Well, there is math in astronomy.
Me - I don't think you get it. I spent the last two years of my life reading Milan Kundera novels.
Him - *shakes head in disgust* Fine, I won't grade the math stuff on your test.
