Misery From Elsewhere

Home-made Lunar Eclipse Gif To Demonstrate Hopelessness
I swear I was looking for something else entirely when I stumbled across this gem:
College Syllabus Through the Eyes of *That* Student Synopsis: Most college professors, most teachers at any level, can share horror stories of students who fail to pay attention to the dates, times, and policies included in a syllabus. Let us pause for a minute and envision a generic college syllabus through the eyes of the ultimate nightmare college student.
Hard to believe it wasn't written by someone here.


  1. Yup! That rings so true it's almost not funny. But I still laughed. :)

  2. I read a lot of the items with deep sighs, similar to those my dogs give when they think they should be played with more.

    I sighed particularly hard at "My participation in class will be governed not by what best aids my learning or demonstrates my knowledge, but by my fear that fellow classmates will judge me." My classes are full of such students.

  3. I, too, vacillated between knowing snickering and resigned sadness.

  4. Between yesterday and today, that website broke. =(
