(Late) Tuesday with Twitter

  1. I like this ass_deans character; she seems to understand academic life pretty well.

    And I see a number of people making observations that I expect will be true of me, too, when I start teaching again in 10 days. (Which reminds me; I need to send that email reminding students that they do, indeed, need reliable, and uncensored, internet service in order to take an intensive online course. Really shouldn't need to say it, but I do. I'll tell them not to run outside and munch on daisies while I'm at it.)

    My grad school dorm had a bar with a mildly clever name, but google reveals that it is (surprisingly; it's not *that* clever) unique to the institution, so I suppose I won't share it.

    1. After reading the feed on the right, I'm wondering whether I should also tell them that nobody else should do the work for them. Fortunately, it's difficult enough that I think they'll have trouble convincing even a parent, child, or partner to do it for free, and a paid stand-in is likely to charge a pretty high fee.

  2. I especially like the kid looking for someone to do his/her pre-calc class. That'll pay off next semester.

    1. While I was teaching, our students had to take a first-term math course, which was on computer. There were always rumours that certain people had someone else do their work for them.

  3. I love these so much now that it's summer vacation for me. YAY, quarter system! And thanks, BB, for keeping us going through the summer.

  4. Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love learning more on this topic. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog with extra information? It is extremely helpful for me.
