The Academy may be dying..... least if this study from the University of Colorado at Boulder is indicative.  A professor there (in the sociology department of course) uses the example of movies to argue that it's incontestable that people build their happiness, or lack thereof, off their relative frequency of sexual relations vs. that of others, and that we routinely ask other people how often they're having sex.

In related news, another "Ski U" professor has proven from the movies that nobody ever goes to church unless they're being chased by a homicidal maniac and need to take communion to protect them from the Devil, that nobody is married but everybody is having sex at the drop of a hat (at least if anyone wore hats anymore), all clergy not protecting promiscuous teenagers from the Devil are devils themselves, and that 95% of people in the world are young, impossibly attractive, and of course, promiscuous.

The Buffs aren't likely to go to the Rose Bowl anytime soon, but they're becoming seriously competitive in the "stupidest liberal arts professors" with the likes of Stanford and Berkeley already.
