You know sometimes I am the only one on these forums, and it says ONE USER ACTIVE down the bottom and that user is me. It's the only time I feel truly safe.

I can understand that.

I was watching the news today, waiting for coverage of this distressing missing-Nigerian-president thing, and no one but me seems to care. I haven't seen it on US news at all.

There may have been a time when I would get mad at that, but I think that would have more to do with elitist anti-USAism than caring about the president of Nigeria. To be honest I don't care if they find him or not.

I was just thinking about the outcry when "The Gods Must Be Crazy" parts 1 and 2 came out, how racist everyone said it was for acting like these African countries were just madcap banana republics with governments getting ousted and/or killed just about every other week. And the outrage sounds good, but then stuff like this happens.

I'd heard nothing about this until you made a thread on it, Kitsa.
I even thought the thread was spam at first.
Google, Yahoo, BBC, and Twitter were all empty until he finally broke his silence.

I just don't get how these leaders (and a couple of prominent Americans did the same, just taking off for extended periods of time) think they can just drop off the map and no one will notice.

i had my first distance ed/conference class last night. the 'super advanced' technology, allowed the professor to teach 5 universities and 100 students from all over at once. each class room had a 360 camera and microphones in the desks - the screen would switch over to where ever the loudest noise at that moment was coming from and zoom in on it. (this is so we could see whoever was talking at the time - student, professor, whoever)

the problem was we had to be extremely quiet for the professor to stay on the screen, but the 'super advanced' technology was too sensitive. someone would sneeze, the professor would be cut off mid-sentence and it'd switch to the class and zoom in on the student who did it. (other examples included putting on a sweatshirt, dropping a pen, and one lovely lady who attempted to sneak out with the camera following her to the door - zoomed in on her toush) each time 101 people would start laughing, and the screen would seizure between the 5 rooms until everyone stopped. oh the future. 3 hours, we accomplished nothing, going to be a great semester!

That's hilarious even though I'd eventually get frustrated at the severe lack of productivity if I was in that class.

I had lectures where you weren't supposed to ask questions. That's what the tutorials afterwards are for.

But the again we took Philosophy under a tree, with no desks, let alone desks with microphones in them.

It means make someone say something rude for all the world to see. Maybe you can get even with your brother for revealing your list.

That sounds like the least productive class ever, but also potentially the most entertaining.

No baby today unless I spontaneously go into labor They decided on Jan 26, which feels like a very long way away.

More like a loooooong semester. I'd hope everyone dropped the class but me.

if anything, i think the class might just become larger in the next week. it was so much fun - the only downside to it is that 20% of my final grade will be based on class participation and i am incredibly shy

has anyone else taken one like this or had a similarly large class?

I've had several classes that had over a hundred people, and by the end of the semester there was usually only like 15 people in the class.

also if you're reasonably intelligent it shouldn't be all that hard to participate. I'm pretty shy but I usually managed to participate because I would know the answers/not care if i'm wrong.
also if you do any group projects/presentations all the stupid people will be too busy text messaging/talking to their friends/jacking off and looking smug to participate, so you'll end up doing all the work and get all the participation points

but who knows if our experiences will be similar!

if you're really shy just bring some rocks in to class and whenever the camera pans at you just throw them at the wall and then nobody will have to look at you!

I was in a real-life (as in, non-camera) class where everyone dropped but me. That was pretty awkward in terms of participation.

There was originally one other guy. It was an evening class that was taught by the advisor for my degree program. She would lecture, and he was uncomfortable, I guess. So the entire time she'd be talking, he'd be saying, "Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh, yeah. Oh. Uh huh..." When he dropped out about a week in, I was relieved because it was getting annoying.

Any other professor would have canceled the class with only one student, but she was out to do me a favor- she knew I needed it for my degree. So she kept it going, and that whole semester I was the only person. She lectured to just me. I felt guilty that she was coming in at night for this class with just one person. One time I tried to call off by explaining that I had no ride home. She told me she'd drive me home, and damned if she didn't.

The downside was that there was no way she'd ever call on someone else.

The upside was that the guilt and mandatory constant attention resulted in an A for the semester. I actually think it might have been an A+, can't remember.
