I want to teach this course

Via io9: BIOL 103, "Biology in Science Fiction", at Kenyon College. Sure, the lesson on tribbles is probably just about density-dependent population growth. But it's a lesson on tribbles.

  1. QUESTION: is the union of people who want to hear a lecture on tribbles and people who want to hear a lecture on density dependence equal to the intersection of people who want to hear a lecture on tribbles and people who want to hear a lecture on density dependence?

  2. Good point. Probably they're as close to equal as makes no difference. Nevertheless, I hereby resolve that, when I come to the point in my career that I have to explain density dependent population growth to undergrads, there will be tribbles.
