Heh, not a bad quote. I've known classes where that fit. Of course, I've also had classes which were much better.
Aw, man! I knew I should have checked the number of posts before watching that video...
As have I, of course. :) I was just interested in what the response would be to this quote with such an educated group, as I have here.
And I'll take your Broadway Business Class for you, and you can watch my kid for the semester. LOL.
I certainly had professors for which that was true. And it still irritates me.
Hell, I had one where I stopped reading the books (it was English) and still managed to get a very high grade. I just regurgitated onto the paper, even in my essays.
It irritates me too. I hate teachers/professors like that. I've been very fortunate that most of my teachers haven't fit into this category at all.
That does seem true, especialy at the place I'm going to school. The kids don't seem to give a damn for what they do, they're just here because mommy and daddy sent them to college.
Where are you going to school? Is it like that in all of your classes, or in more of the logical, or creative classes?
I go to school at a 2/4 year school, where my major is one of the lesser choosen(I'm comunications). This means that most of classes get kids who's advisors toss them in to meet elective requirments, and they mostly end up not caring about the course. Thus a course like intro. to mass media which could be funll of lively discussion is quite as a church, and rather dull. On the up swing my comments, since they're some of the only ones, make me look good
That's overall pretty crappy, but at least your professors probably appreciate you. :)
In a lot of cases, I have to agree. The whole banking model of education where experts feed education into empty, open minds is bullshit. That's not really learning. To be effective, education needs to be interactive and experiential, imo.

I agree completely. I do best when I get both in my classes.
Oh man. Thank you for making my life worth living with that video!!
singing and dancing condoms just the laugh i needed thanks
Getting my masters in Ed, so I could go on for hours. Basically, I disagree.
Edumacated? That extra syllable is an example of epenthesis, and not technically incorrect...I guess. And that little factoid I didn't learn in school but from a word of the day calendar. Further internet and thus autodidactic investigation (prompted, actually, by you) shows that perhaps it's actually an example of infixation, but I'm no linguistics expert. I just read the calendars...
It was a play on words. Nothing more.
Wouldn't you agree that there are a LOT of teachers who conduct their classes in such a way that the quote fits?
I've had many amazing teachers and professors but some shitty ones too.
well, I'm not sure if that's really going to help people over the age of...wait...why would people that young need condoms!? Well, anything to reduce the world population.
The tune *is* catchy.
