>From a recent P. J. O'Rourke essay:

" We sit once more packed into the vast, dreary confines of a freshman
survey course-"Rocks for Jocks," "Nuts and Sluts," "Darkness at Noon." "

I recognize "Rocks for Jocks" as a derisive name for Geology 101 in the
form of a crip course which would be an easy elective "A".  But I don't
get the other references.  Context would seem to indicate that they,
too, are crip courses.  What are they?
