    A whole new meaning for “money shot.”

    It’s not like the Teacher has a RESPONSIBILITY to present the material in an interesting and engaging way, is it?

    You know, actually try to make it RELEVANT to the Students who are PAYING his SALARY!

    (What AM I thinking, he has Tenure, He doesn’t care!)

    He does care or there wouldn’t be a grad student with a paintball gun in the back.

    Zero tolerance gun-free zone. Lock the kid up and then lock the professor up for making threats and assault!

    About to toss out a pithy comment on your initial effort, I had to stop and admire your response to “Dr. Strange”. I’m sure the teachers of the world don’t appreciate his reflexive disdain!

    Red marks on the student to match the red marks on the student’s research paper.

    The countermeasure: Google Glass
    Of course, someone in the Computer Science or EE Dept could get a grant from the NSA to generate a snoop for that. as well.

    If they’re paying for him to talk, why aren’t they listening?

    Actually, I was impressed by a professor I had my very first semester in college. He said that we weren’t in high school any more, and he didn’t really give a damn whether we showed up for class or not, or whether we paid any attention to his lectures or not … and in fact anyone who wanted to get up and leave on the spot could. He got his salary all the same, he said, so he wasn’t going to coddle us, cajole us, bully us or threaten us. Those who felt like learning could; those who didn’t care that they were wasting their tuition didn’t have to.

    I thought he was on to something. If the students of today want to learn, they can. If they’d rather play computer games or surf porn sites while in classes, that’s their lookout. But I don’t see why professors have to provide enough entertainment and fun and games to overwhelm them. I’ll settle for good, straightforward teaching.

    I saw an article this week introducing a Google Glass “jammer”. It detects and disrupts the wireless addresses of GGs trying to connect via local networks.
