If you want to see speakers act like petulant toddlers when they're told their allotted time is up, go to an academic conference. At my first conference in 1998 the Dean of Science from my school was scheduled for a 30 minute talk. After he had gone over by 10 minutes (setting all the other speakers back) the session chair tried to politely cut it short. The Dean reminded him that he was up for tenure review later that year and to keep that in mind "before you do something foolish".

/No sympathy for speakers who go over. You're told how much time you have well in advance. Plan accordingly. Your work isn't nearly as important as you think it is.

You'd think all these conferences/whatnot would just have mikes with a timer that cuts off once the allotted time is up. Or even better - just starts emitting white noise to drown out the speaker if they try to keep talking anyway.

"You best wrap that gavel up, yo!"
God, I'd pay to see that on court. Always fun to see someone get lippy with the judge.

It's less the lip itself, more the subsequent ass-kicking.  It's weird to root for the big guy, but it is occasionally hilarious when the little guy has it coming.

No different than lecturing about any other type of artist. If art is something worth studying, then comics should be included.

\video games as well

What an insufferable coont.  I would have walked out on him after the first outburst.  Self-centered prick.
