A subject interesting to the teacher will bore students

  • The time a teacher takes in explaining is inversely proportional to the information retained by students.
  • A meeting's length will be directly proportional to the boredom the speaker produces.
  • Clocks will run more quickly during free time.
  • Students who are doing better are credited with working harder. If children start to do poorly, the teacher will be blamed.
  • The problem child will be a school board member's son.
  • New students come from schools that do not teach anything.
  • Good students move away.
  • When speaking to the school psychologist, the teacher will say: "weirdo" rather than "emotionally disturbed".
Laws of Applied Terror
  1. When reviewing your notes before an exam, the most important ones will be illegible.
  2. The more studying you did for the exam, the less sure you are as to which answer they want
  3. Eighty percent of the final exam will be based on the one lecture you missed about the one book you didn't read.
  4. The night before the English history midterm, your Biology instructor will assign two hundred pages on planarian.
First Law of Final Exams
  • Pocket calculator batteries that have lasted all semester will fail during the math final.
  • Corollary: If you bring extra batteries, they will be defective.
Second Law of Final Exams
  • In your toughest final, the most distractingly attractive student in class will sit next to you for the first time.

Happy Teacher’s Day, and enjoy your break.
