Nothing chaps my ass like the phrase “mandatory attendance.” Especially when your section is at 8 a.m. on a Friday and the TA is discussing library skills.

Should your grade really depend on such things? Probably not, but at least I’ve come to appreciate the true value of Nokia games, calculator Tetris, and a good book.

Is it rude to set new high scores for Snake during your discussion section? Well, yes.

But it’s also rude to be reading this. So take your pick.

Friday’s forecast: Nausea: double-spaced with one inch margins.
