Hello Dear Readers! Good News. Lookee what I got in the mail!
The Great Courses want me back! This could only mean one of two things: either they want me back because they somehow found out I hate school, and they think I need to step it up education-wise OR they’ve got me mixed up with somebody else. I suspect the latter or maybe the former. (I’ve never really known the difference.)
Apparently The Great Courses don’t know I’ve hated school since the second day of first grade. Oh sure, the first day was fun but then a pattern of no fun started developing, and it was all downhill from there on out.
Anywayz, (yeah you heard me Great Courses I said anywayz — you gonna do somethin’ about it? Yeah? . . . you and what university? . . . .) Anywayz, like I was saying, apparently it is this guy who thinks I need to take some courses.
Now I’m not saying that Robert M. Hazen is not as wonderful as he himself thinks he is (and no you may NOT call him Bob), I’m just saying that the look in Robert’s eye is a little unsettling — even if he has deemed himself to be in the top 1 % of professors in the world.
And how did he go about deeming himself thusly? Well, it was easy (for him).
First he took the number of teaching awards he has accumulated and divided it by the number of evaluations he’s had published. Then, he took that number or “quotient” (as the top 1% professors call it) and multiplied it by the number of newspaper write ups featuring none other than Robert M. Hazen Ph.D, Harvard University! . . . . Harvard University! . . . . .Harvard university! . . . . . university!(Robert was going to get that echo fixed but he’s decided he kinda likes it.)
So what if Robert M. Hazen didn’t ask any of the students who took classes from him what they thought! Who gives a hoot what they think — they’re students . . . ew!
So here’s one of the “Great Courses” Robert is offering for twenty bucks but he’s quick to point out that it is 75% off and which made it $760 originally (arithmetic may vary) . Here it is:
Not only will Robert be teaching what he knows about the unsolved mysteries of the universe, he will, for no extra charge, be teaching everything he doesn’t know about the universe! A subject about which top 1 % professor, Robert could drone on and on for year and years or his name isn’t Robert M. Hazen Ph.D., Harvard University . . . . Harvard University! . . . . .Harvard university! . . . . . university!
Hey guess what? Robert loves that echo so much he’s decided to get one installed in his house! You go Robert!
Until next time . . . I love you
