Sorry, hereís number 27, and sorry if this oneís already on the list, but I overheard it only yesterday. A group of students were talking about a 9 oíclock lecture slot that some of them have for the year. One said to the others that the lecturerís opening line for the first session was: ďIím not a morning person.Ē
Also, a cautionary note. I wouldnít want to see these comments end up like the `dumb things people write in examsí, which, although I find them funny, in equal measure, I also find the exercise a bit smug. Under exam pressure Iím sure Iíve written some very dumb things, and Iím sure Iíve also said some dumb things at the beginning of lectures. (Please donít confirm that, those who know me.). I think this sometimes just reflects (sub consciously, or unconsciously) the anxiety we feel about what we are about to do, particularly if we are new to teaching in general, or new to teaching a particular subject.
Panos, I donít think this is what you intend at all, and I love this thread because itís educative and funny in equal measure Ė so, maybe just a cautionary note about how it could be used.

I'm so glad that 26 people took no notice, Panos. Reading the responses has been great.
