    Being a lab instructor seems like it is probably the most horrible thing

    On one hand, they don't know what they're doing because, you know, this is the lab course where they learn what the fuck and that should be remembered.

    On the other hand, things would go much smoother for them if they did the reading and followed instructions.

    Common sense would also be nice.

    Last week, there were instructions to heat some water on a hotplate. In someone else's section, a student proceeded to measure out the requisite water in a graduated cylinder, possessing a plastic bottom, and put it on the hotplate.

    Workshop classes are good like this too.

    I remember when a guy thought it would be a good idea to stick his tie (we had to wear ties to school back then) into a metal buffer mounted to a bench (basically a cloth wheel turning at about 3000rpm).

    Luckily for him, all it did was pull the knot really, really tight and the tie snapped. They had to cut the tie off him to get it off his neck. The metalwork teacher ended up attaching it the wall at the front of the class as a reminder not to be a fucking idiot

    I registered yesterday for the fall. Kind of excited. REALLY excited to transfer, moving over to BC from Alberta. Anyways, I'm taking:

    Intro to Canadian Lit
    Shakespeare: Comedy & Romance
    English Novel 1660-1750
    Topics in Philosophy: Philosophy and Science Fiction

    I have a feeling I'm gonna do a lot of reading.

    I like to cram all my classes into 3 days so I get two days off.

    Once I am at uni I can study all day, it's just the getting there that sucks.

    Okay. Did my annotated bibliography and research paper proposal in four hours. Ten sources, read and annotated.

    Guys, this is actually going to be a lot of fun to write, because Ayn Rand was a terrible person but a semi-decent writer at points, which means that I'll actually have things to hang an argument on. Not only that, but there are PLENTY of Rand Institute-funded critics who are terrible as shit, and if there's one thing that makes a research paper, it's speaking against terrible critics.

    half of my fridays this semester should have no classes

    this is the first time ive had a no class day in 3 years of uni

    also I was gonna speak in favour of pre-10am classes but then I remembered how often I slept in my 9am classes

    I think one of the 2nd year organic chem classes had 8am lectures here, which is another reason im glad I didn't major in chem

    it's just so formulaic

    here is a chapter about howard roark, he is the good guy, look at how dashing he is and never gives up despite the enormous adversity of being told to make compromises

    here is a chapter about peter keating, he is the pitiful guy, but don't feel too bad he brought it on himself

    here is a chapter about elsworth toohey, he is the bad guy, look at how horrible he is, hosting backdoor meeting about how he will institute collectivism

    i appear to have talked myself into a corner, wherein i compare christopher marlowe's two-play tragedy Tamburlaine the Great with Atlas Shrugged.

    Atlas Shrugged is more than a thousand pages long.

    High school chemistry lab.

    We're doing that thing where you add hydrogen peroxide to a catalyst in a reaction chamber to make O2 (or H2, one of those labs) and feed it through a tube in a tray of water to capture it in a little bottle. Then you uncork the little bottle and put a match to it and *POOF!*

    So the dipshit at the table next to me thinks it would be hilarious to drop a lit match right into his reaction chamber.

    There is an explosion not unlike a hand grenade going off five feet away from me and everyone in the room hits the deck. The reaction chamber bottle is completely shattered.

    Thank christ the teachers had wrapped those bottles with a couple layers of thick clear tape or I probably would look like that dude in that Bond movie with the diamonds in his face.

    only with, y'know... tiny shards of glass

    the tape is probably there because that's not the first time someone did it.

    My single favorite class of all of junior high was when our chemistry teacher let us throw tiny pebbles of potassium into a tub of water, then when everyone had had a go he threw in everything that was left. He'd made us stand behind a rope probably fifteen feet away, which everyone thought was much too far, but the front row (me included) still got splashed with hot water.

    I wanted to be a chemist from that moment and right until I took high school chemistry, which involved no explosions of any kind and lots of math of all the worst kinds. Thanks so much, boring old lady chem teacher!

    What really grinds my gears is that the dumb fuck didn't get so much as a slap on the wrist because his mom was a teacher there.

    Only thing is I'm not sure how/if I can 'use' it. I am looking at the school website and am having trouble finding anything about AP credit. I am registering for classes at orientation in a few days and still don't get how I am supposed to select my classes. I don't want to register for something if my AP credit covers it but I can't tell if it will.
