I'm sure everyones had a college course in which they are not quite sure why they are paying for it. Well I've landed in said course, Computer Science 101 taught by an international TA and he's just a moron.

Example 1

On Monday we were talking about the different types of PC's and he posed the question "What is the difference between Laptop PC's and Desktop PC's?"

So I retorted with "Desktop PC's are comprised of a seperate tower and monitor while laptops are one component"

He said "No" and with a **edited** eating grin said "Laptops go on the lap and desktops go on the desk!"

I just had to roll my eyes after that one and sit in displeasure.

Example 2
Today we are talking about the Internet, yes, the intarweb. But not the Ted Steven's one!

He proceeds to tell the class that your IP address is assigned to your network card when your machine is assembled and the NIC Card goes into the motherboard

So far after 2 weeks thats all the misinformation I've gotten, granted the rest is pretty empirical stuff.

By the way, my laptop is on my desk right now. Fear the matrix.

I love teachers like that. I had a QBasic teacher that didn't know QBasic.

The key is to ask them questions about things they can't comfortably answer, given their lack of any actual knowledge. I'm not a computer genius by any means, but I don't go telling people crap I don't know while swearing that it's fact. Let alone, like those teachers, getting paid to do it.

Let him know that actually using a laptop ON your lap will not only make you uncomfortably hot, but can damage the computer.

And then slap him around a few times.
