Have you ever seen Pollyanna (Hayley Mills movie from like 1960)? Do you remember the priest? How he would stand in church and yell at everyone and proclaim doom and gloom? no? see below..
Ok now imagine he is yelling about studying and science and the end of the world and you have just met my Genetics teacher.
I couldn't figure out why he seemed so familiar at first but then in class number two he told us all about how he was originally a theology student and wanted to be a Lutheran Minister. I almost started laughing because I immediately thought of Pollyanna. Luckily I held it together because he probably would have yelled at me personally I'm not looking forward to that moment.
