Take the Walking Dead Class for Free

This actually looks fun. And Univ of California and actual professors will be running the class. I've enrolled - will you?

Huffington Post
The University of California, Irvine is offering an online course based on AMC's popular TV show "The Walking Dead."
The massive open online course is titled "Society, Science, Survival: Lessons from AMC’s 'The Walking Dead.'" It's free and it will last eight weeks. The class will be offered on Instructure’s MOOC platform and taught by four UC Irvine professors from different disciplines: Zuzana Bic, public health; Joanne Christopherson, social sciences; Michael Dennin physics; and Sarah Eichhorn, mathematics.
"'The Walking Dead' provides many poignant case studies related to the scholarly areas covered in the course, and it helps that it’s one of TV’s most popular shows," Bic said in a news release. "There will be something for everyone in this course, which will explore concepts as varied as post-disaster nutrition, the foundations of human survival and stereotypes in a Darwinian environment."
