Ew ew ew ew ew...

On what PLANET is it considered appropriate to chew tobacco in class???

It took me a while to notice it was happening, as the student in question was using a Pepsi bottle as a spittoon, and I don't particularly mind if students have Pepsi in class. I do mind if the level of liquid in the bottle ... appears to be steadily increasing rather than decreasing. Ick!

If I never work in this profession again, I am not going to miss freshman comp at ALL.

On a more cheerful note, thanks to somebody-or-other at the Chronicle forums for linking to what is now my new favorite piece of medieval art. I adore the fact that those two back rows of students have not changed in the slightest in 600-odd years.

what I want to know is how that teacher got into that chair ...

That is an excellent question, given that the side the steps are on doesn't seem to afford much room to squeeze into the thing. Maybe medieval professors were made of Silly Putty?

There's little that students do regularly that's more disgusting than chewing. But dog forbid they master their addiction for a whole hour at a time!
