//teacher is running late Ittai: Well, I guess that since we don't have a teacher, I'll have to take over for today. Various students: Act like he's the actual teacher! Everyone sit down and take notes! //Ittai takes teacher's book, sits in teacher's chair, and starts to write on the board Ittai: So, Swokowski is telling us that to do triple integrals in cylindrical coordinates, we need to...um...draw a picture! *draws on board*  Man that looks bad, if only Julie Zhu were here!  So Swokowski thinks about how polar works, extrapolates for the z, and then he gives us this formula *writes volume formula* //at this point, teacher walks in, sits down at other end of board, and watches while grinning Ittai: And now what Swokowski is trying to tell us is...woah...*starts trying to figure out just what the book says*...it's like, um...*closes book*  So let me tell you a story now.  It turns out that not all mathematicians are all that smart.  I was talking to my friend, Dr. Washington, and he said that if you take the whole group of mathematicians, there are some really great ones at the top.  And...yeah...so anyways, you all need to study. //at this point, he sits down and teacher takes over

Teacher cracked up multiple times.  And yes, this really did happen.

//Kamal is reading Swokowski instead of listening to Mr. Whitacre //Whitacre walks up behind Kamal and steals his textbook Whitacre: Do you need this? //Whitacre walks to the window, opens it up, and holds the book out the window Kamal: I'd rather see you drop it out the window. //after about a minute of back-and-forth Whitacre: What book is this, anyways? Kamal: It's a math book. Ben: Multivariable calculus! Whitacre: Yeah, it's gotta go. //Whitacre drops the book out the window //everyone runs to the window to see //meanwhile, Kamal runs outside to retrieve his textbook Steven: Next goes the stool! //Steven starts putting the stool out the window, but Whitacre closes the window //Kamal gets his textbook, but he's locked out of the building //Whitacre asks another student to let Kamal in Whitacre (opening back up the window): We're sending rescue! (to the class) He can do math, but he can't get back into the building. Kamal (upon returning): That was roughly the coolest thing ever!
