Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

A cautionary message for collegiate instructors.

Many of us are preparing to begin teaching classes this semester. Many of us have done this before, while others will be embarking on this endeavor for the first time.* Regardless, I just want to remind you that, for many of our students, the following is a roughly accurate representation of the approach to generating knowledge:

Seriously, best of luck everybody! It should be a fun year.

* My good wishes are yours in particular if this is your first time. Teaching a class for the first time is like having sex for the first time. You build it up into this big thing beforehand, find yourself sweaty and awkward while you're doing it, and then find yourself wondering what the hell just happened afterwards. On the plus side, after you teach your first class you probably won't end up with a burning sensation when you pee.

Hat-tip to the excellent graphjam for this little gem.
