where on the food pyramid do chocolate covered espresso beans rank

asking for a friend
I didn't have time to sleep last night, so to make sure I was hyper enough to keep my 8:30 am class ENGAGED ALERT AND ON THEIR TOES... I basically ate all of the espresso beans. All of them on earth.

I should probably balance this out with some beef jerky or something.
I should also probably sleep.

That would be wise, particularly because:

Tomorrow I teach my intro Middle East class at 7:50 about...sharia.
Note to self: launch investigation of recent Twitter followers to block potential student infiltrators ASAP.

I adore you guys, but you already know perfectly well what an unhinged lunatic I am from class. You do not need to follow my Twitter for this information.
Okay, people asking for pedagogical details of "Sharia Day."

I'm not doing spoilers today - and also I'm suuuuuper stupid right because all-nighters at my age of approximately the damn Crone are...unwise.

Here is what I WILL tell you - for now.
"Sharia Day" basically starts with me asking them to explain what an "Islamist is." They all get a chance to answer before I disclose that...I have absolutely no idea what in the hell that word even means.

Inevitably, one of them (or all) will then say the magical word SHARIA!
Here is the slide I have prepared for that magical moment.

"OH OKAY I SEE WHAT YOU MEAN: SHARIA - LIKE THIS!"
Then we get to talk about this picture - from back when the state obviously MOST IMMEDIATELY threatened by the hostile legal takeover of WHATEVER THE HELL SHARIA ACTUALLY MEANS (TO WHO WHEN WHERE AND WHY etc.)....

Oh, yes.

THE VERY FRONTLINE of global caliphal aims - OKLAHOMA.
Then they get to tell me:

a) what the hell they think sharia means
&
b) why did Oklahoma need to preemptively ban it

FUN FOR US ALL.
I figure I'll drag this conversation out as looooooooooon as possible.

And then I'm going to ask if they know what "halakha" is in Judaism.
At this point, I plan to drop in one of my favorite slides - useful in a variety of pedagogical contexts (dropped this one into a different class this morning, on an entirely different topic)!

So multi-purpose, yet eternally relevant. Great segue, too:
Listen, they are paying a LOT of money for their educations here. I intend to make every penny of that count in an informative and entertaining manner.

Even if they hate me at least 75% of the time.

Honestly, we have so much fun. At least I do, sooooooo.....
So to develop my Evil Pedagogy to the fullest extent, with new and exciting Jedi #CreepingSharia mind tricks....

First I need to sleep.

The above is all I can come up off the top of my head. So. It's almost 4 pm and I am way past my bedtime.

GOODNIGHT and GOOD LUCK (to me).
