"It's exciting getting to shake things"

Wouldn't mind seeing that Grad Student shake some other things...

Do you mean there's a hot babe in the video? I didn't get that far. :(

I like it because it demonstrates the value you are getting out of modern graduate studies. The video just screams "I don't really want to be a true civil engineer, I never did, so it was either this or starting fresh in political science for 4 years." I'm sure she's already working on her MBA when she has trouble managing how much she feeds her cat!

OMG! I'm just going to have to shut down my stupid-filters and watch this!

I finally watched it! If I assume great intelligence over there, then:

-this is necessary to attract ipad students from fashion studies.

-this is necessary to get money from local politicians.

-this is a grand diversion to cover up the testing of those energy absorbing, self-centering bridge supports.
