I'm surprised it's not at CU-Boulder

I think you're supposed to show up for class and do your coursework.

Maybe it's time to switch to an engineering major.

I had a teacher growing up who did the same thing:

Or drop that shiat and have an easy semester.

What's her name?

Change your major to something that will make you employable after graduation.

Apologize to your parents for wasting their money.

Cybernetic: Change your major to something that will make you employable after graduation.

I read that as:

"Change your major to something that will make you enjoyable after graduation."

A professor I am? Well, class I hope everyone brought their used banana peels for tuition.

Hand in a few of these with every assignment.

Transfer to a real college.

He's got tenure doesn't he

Elroydb: He's got tenure doesn't he

Beyond that he's probably got $300k from the NSF for this crap.

I predict a crushing end to this saga.

Clever bastard.

He's figured out a way to

1) work from home
2) discourage students who hound their professors all of the time from camping in his office
3) rent a home office for less without the company complaining
4) avoid planned or accidental meetings with the Dean, his or her secretary, the faculty, the students, and the rest of the staff
5) get his name in the news
6) discourage students from requesting him as their thesis supervisor
7) avoid the distractions and time-wasting of office politics

Stick with this guy and you will go far, grad students.

Now that is a professor's professor!

One word:  Wormstrom!  (He must be an ancestor of Professor Wormstrom or Professor Farnsworth or both.)

And he's an inspiration to work-adverse Farkers everywhere.

Professor Dumpster Diver, I salute you!

Tenured profs get Dumpsters. Adjuncts are stuck with Trash-Co waste disposal units.

Regret whatever decisions brought me to this point.

Obviously, you bring a few of your army buddies with you to go meet him and when he snaps at you to get out of his light, you do it.

We need to do away with this tenure crap.
