Questions III

So, I suppose I've underestimated the amount to which my fellow students loathe their time being taken up by questions.

Chirag (the guy who tipped off the war) wrote an email BACK to our biochem prof, and Cc'ed the entire listserv. He basically restated his point, told the prof that he wasn't trying to insult the prof's teaching ability, but still wants people to shut the hell up. Oh man. Also, someone used to send an anonymous email to our listserv ("Joseph Smith" :, if you care) about how s/he felt that they couldn't speak up in class and that it was unfortunate that some people were monopolizing the time.

I'm sure it's not as interesting to all you readers as it is to me... but keep in mind, I spend at least 4 hours a day with these people in a cramped room. When people start to get punchy, it's like my own personal soap opera. I can't wait for the next episode. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that our dean will probably cancel Medicine: Unleashed! at any minute, since he also gets all these emails, and he's big on professionalism.

Like a gaggle of 12 year old girls, I tell you. And these are all future doctors.
