SAM'S POL-SCI CLASS

AN ACT IN MANY PLAYS

Quote:
Teacher: Can you tell me what the basic force in all politics is?

Sam: Um, the social contract, maybe.

Teacher: The social contract is a basic force?

Sam: It's this observation that people trade rights for comfort and security.

Teacher: Well, I think that bringing Locke into this discussion is kind of esoteric.

Sam: That's Hobbes. And I'm just giving an idea about what kind of force would drive pol

Teacher: The social contract is Locke.

Sam: Nnnnnnnnno.

Teacher: We'll take this up later!

Teacher: *NEVER TAKES IT UP LATER*


Quote:
Student #1: Hey, does anyone else know about that whole oil spill in the middle east? I'm not just hallucinating that, am I?

Sam: Yeah, there was an oil spill off the coast of Lebanon.

Student #1: Ok, good, it exists. I thought I'd heard something about it, and ..

Student #5: Lebanon doesn't have a coast.

Sam: Y.. wff .. youuuu can check the news, there's ..

Teacher: Lebanon is to the east of Israel. They don't have a coast.

Sam: I don't .. think that you are very .. uh .. Llllllllllebanon has a coast

Teacher: I think you have them confused for another middle eastern state.

Sam: Can I please please go grab a newspaper please. And show you. Please.

Teacher: Bring it to class tomorrow.


Quote:
Teacher: I think the problem is that you are defining Jews as an ethnic group.

Sam: I sure am!

Teacher: They're a religious group.

Sam: Not exclusively!

Teacher: You have to be Jewish to be a jew!

Sam: But you don't have to be a follower of Judaism to be called a Jew!

Teacher: I don't think that's strictly correct.

Student #6: He's right, I mean, I'm Jewish and I don't practice religion at all.

Teacher: You are such a feisty class! We'll take this up later.

Teacher: *NEVER TAKES IT UP LATER*


Quote:
Sam: The deal with Chechnya and Russia involves .. a, .. degree of religious conflict.

Teacher: Right, it's a Muslim country versus an Athiest country.

Sam: Russia is an athiest country?

Teacher: They used to be communist.

Sam: Aren't they secular?

Teacher: No, they're athiest.

Student #3: Cool. The Russian Orthodox Church is athiest.

Student #7: No it's not!

Student #3: uh i was being sarcastic.


Quote:
Student #4: No, Muslim is incompatable with freedom. You can't have it, since the Koran says you have to kill nonbelievers.

Teacher: You mean 'Islam.'

Student #4: Oh, yah. Islam.

Islamic Student In Class: *DEATH HATE GLARE HATE HATE silent resignation*

Here's the old thread for anyone who's confused.

Aside from the question that made my classmate immortal ("So, like...was Socrates a Christian?"), my favorite is still, "Philosophy is a stupid major because everything you need to know about ethics is in the Bible."

(Oh, browsing through the old thread makes me so very happy.)

How do you not chew your tongue bloody in that class? And it's only the second week of classes?

The teacher's grasp of geography leaves me stunned. STUNNED.

There's a map of the Middle East on the bathroom wall here. Yeah. there's a coast. Every country in the region known as the Middle East has a coast except Armenia. (and Afghanistan, if you count that far to the east as part of the middle east, but I don't.)

Not to defend the teacher, but I bet he/she was thinking of Jordan, though even Jordan has coastline on the Red Sea (barely.)

Yeah, second rate professors are almost as bad as religion.

They mean well and all, but...something's not quite right.

I'm surprised. Why would you refer to this professor as second-rate?



I mean, why would they rate so highly?

I'd rather not infect Casual Chat with all those GD issues, I just want to fuck a lawn gnome.

To get this back on track, even though I probably said it in the last thread: My history teacher thought that Pocahontas was a real historic figure.

She's hilariously dumb.
