I'm bored in class too!
Truth be told, if you're bored in class, what can you do but get up, go for
a walk and come back ten minutes later. Never fear, ponder this:
- If you love your bike, you will not lock it in the underpass near Math and
- Sometimes, broccoli has a way of finding itself left on your doorstep.
Why are the above facts true? Because drunk people do stupid things
that seem so smart at the time. For example, drunk people may sometimes
be found doing the following:
- Moving bike racks to strange locations
- Destroying bikes on the way home
- Screaming something about being queer and wanting more beer
But really, being bored in class doesn't mean looking forward to the next
time you're drunk. Or the next time you see broccoli waiting for you in the
morning. It's about how to make time go faster.
Unfortunately, I've been sort of on a break from creativity this week, so
the articles are lacking in carrot, but have more broccoli. Broccoli,
Now for the broccoli of the day - a couple games to play in class.
Chair Leaning 2001 — Some of you may know the inspiration for
this game... The goal of the game is to lure your friends into a
room (with chairs that have legs) to study. If you see them leaning on
two legs of a chair, you must slap them on both sides of the side of
the head and declare the right of prima chaira. The person in
the chair is then required to sit and lean on the chair's two legs as
they were for the next hour. I think the slapping is the best part, so
I've included a "technical reversal". If the person in the chair can
slap the "slapper" on the knee in the next minute or so, prima
chaira is cancelled.
- What Time is it Mr. Prof? — Another timeless classic. Best
accomplished in longer lecture halls that have poor attendance, the
goal is to make it to the front of the classroom without the prof
noticing. Students begin by sitting at the back of the class, and when
the prof begins to write notes on the board with his/her back to the
class, students advance forward in the rows of chairs as far as they
can before the prof turns around to explain what it is he/she is
writing. To stay in the game, participants must be sitting down before
the prof turns around. Students may gain a bonus row of advancement by
at any time raising hand to ask "What Time is it Mr. Prof?". Regardless
of the Prof's answer to the question, the student may get up in full
view of the professor in sit in the next row forward. The game is won
when a student is sitting next to the Prof or taking notes on his/her
There. Now you've had your broccoli for the day. The carrot, however,
is your own problem.
