    So they really don't like laptops

    second, what gives them the ability to do that and not pay for the damages?

    Other people's laptops in class are SOOOOO distracting if they're not taking notes.

    I don't really use my laptop for class

    my only classes that allow it are classes where handwriting is the only way to go. You can't really draw chemical formulas on a computer (well you could, but it would take way too long).

    I am so surprised/disgusted with all the second year physics majors who are not bothered by graphs that have the terminal velocity of a projectile pointed away from the ground.

    Physics today was great. No homework and pretty much just full concept information over gravitation. Pretty cool stuff

    You know that feeling you get right after an 8A.M. calc exam when you realize you made a bunch of rudimentary errors and completely fucked yourself over?

    Because it isn't a good feeling.

    Nah I'm usually drunk by then

    And as far as laptops go

    I enjoy them, I get to watch people play pokemon during boring classes.

    But the second thing was an April Fool's thing in a foreign language, so it is educational in nature, and therefore appropriate for the school thread!

    And the third one, joke or not, is awesome.

    Also, is a chemistry lecture a front for an underground competitive speed talking ring? Slow down, man, and maybe leave out an anecdote. Maybe.

    Are PhD dudes requires to mumble? Speak up, kid. And stand up straight. And for God's sake, stop wearing worn out sneakers to work.

    Fuck off and die.

    One time, I had a professor tell me to take my hat off. I obliged.

    But, if one of those fuckers tried anything like that now, I would rage.

    oh one guy also did a talk about adaptive optics and had one slide that had the airy disk in it from an image of a star

    so they can get things down to the diffraction limit through about 100km of atmosphere, and get better pictures than hubble (because even though it's slightly lower quality, it's far easier to use bigger diameter mirrors)

    my supervisor described it as "optics pornography"

    I don't have ADD but it's super distracting for me too. Usually because the students that are doing this are also quietly laughing/fidgeting all over while they watch music videos or something. If people are just quietly surfing facebook without comment It's not really bad, but I always get stuck behind the idiots watching movies in class or something.

    Also it's just super disrespectful. I mean, if you're going to show up to class the least you can do is listen. God knows why someone pays for a course so they can sit in a fancy room and surf youtube instead of doing it at home.

    However, the newest thing that's bugging me right now in my last year of undergrad is people kicking the back of my seat. Now, granted, because of my major I'm usually in shitty little windowless rooms with desks all squished together. But I always seem unlucky in that the person behind me is wired as fuck and insists on resting their legs on the back of my seat and jiggling them like a vibrator. I'm getting really tired of turning around and asking people to knock it off, only to get shouted at/given a dirty look. I don't understand when this became common practice but it's juvenile as fuck.

    tl;dr super disappointed with my fellow seniors being shitcocks.

    before i started college i was under the impression that no one used notebooks in college, that everyone just carried their laptops to class always so i was super nervous. little did i realize 90% of my professors bar the use of laptops during class.

    I'm most disappointed in my peers for pursuing a biology degree with no fucking interest in biology. What the absolute shit is that about? There are so many of these jerk offs in my bio classes and all they do is bitch and moan. You duders are paying the school to be miserable. Congrats at failing miserably at college.

    We weren't allowed to wear hats in High School. They could be symbols of gangs. Or something.

    To this day, I continue to see people wear fedoras. As upperclassmen.

    This all happens either in the art building, or in the nerd group that is obsessed with animu.

    I own a fedora because I have a random-not-quite-collection of silly hats. But I can't think of the last time I actually wore it...
