I mentioned the story at work yesterday, to someone from the Chemistry School at our Uni. He said a similar thing happened here. Apparently the students got into a Profs slide carousel and deposited some porn, which he duely broadcast during a Chemistry lecture. Apparently to this day he keeps his carousel either under lock and key or very tightly under his arm.

Must be something about Chemistry

PS Marketing is more boring than Chemistry. Especially when 'they' restructure your course, and you end up doing almost the same crappy marketing unit twice

I'm proud to say that I've never taken marketing or chemistry.

I actually took organic chemistry last semester.

And NO, I didn't have that prof. Although i did have a prof named Dr Dicks.

I know for a fact that byernfc has orgo this semester

I think I'm going to have to call "april fool" on this one.

Not only are there no published papers for a "Dr. Lithoovenstein" of any first name, but methanosilicate? Carboxyl amyl acids?

Something is fishy here...

I agree with mongpoovian...sounds like an april fools joke if it really happened..We limited ourselves to messing with the elevator when the prof was bringing his lab cart down. Though biochem was uhh...pretty interesting.

My chemistry class used to use bunsen burners as water pistols. I loved chemistry.

A family friend told me a funny story about lab jokes.

She worked at a lab where they labeled enzymes with radioactive carbon 14. As a result, they had periodic urine screening of radiation.

One April Fools, her and some friends spiked the tester's urine sample with radioactive material. She went in to test the samples, and when she got to hers, the needle was pegged on the detector.

As I understand it, there was quite a bit of panicking until the tech realized that level of radiation wouls mean she'd be glowing in the dark, if not dead already.

*sigh*. Scientists.

Well I wouldn't quite claim "april fools."

It was posted in Decemeber. And the Varsity, at least the main points, attempts to be pretty accurate.

Now Im going to have to query this one. How long ago was this Monpoovian? People working with radiation, in Australia, are required to wear a thermoluminescent dosimetry badge that is changed every 6 weeks. This badge is sent off to the radiation safety governing body and anybody who gets a reading over 300 whatsits is shot at dawn (or sumfin like that). The only way to jiggity bugger someones results is too nick their TLD for 6 weeks. Even then we have a thyroid testing machine. I would be suprised if the USA had a radically different system of detection. Even crappy ole Kenya have old style films that they are about to switch to TLDs.

So, I was wondering if your friend was ancient and was referring to events a loooong time ago. Or perhaps the April Fools joke is on you. Either that or Im now officially scared to go into a USA lab.

On the other hand, the story about the porn on the laptop I believe. Theres lots of porn at Unis, even when you dont want it.

I was wondering if the Varsity is the equivalent of Prosh at UWA ie a silly student newspaper. I found some other subjects in the Varsity.

Quote:
Science

Scientists discover Mr. T cells
Immunologists have long known about ordinary T-cells, which are an important part of the human immune system. This week, researchers announced the discovery of a similar, but distinct kind of cell-the Mr. T-cell.


Physics building disappears in flash of light
In what is being described as a Gedankenexperiment gone horribly wrong, Maclennan Physical Laboratories disappeared yesterday morning.


Lunar pot-grow operation planned
In a controversial move, two U of T Botany graduate students announced plans Monday to start a hydroponic marijuana plantation on the moon.


Research gorilla "a real asshole"
Dr. Gary Grouse, who teaches sign language to gorillas as part of his research, is getting fed up with the behaviour of one of the animals.


Prof's secret porn stash revealed during power point presentation
Last Monday organic chemistry professor Dr. Lithoovenstein had his secret porn stash discovered when his power point presentation for his lecture on carboxyl amyl acids failed.


Ebola scare at Med Sci
The the Medical Sciences Building will be closed today and tomorrow in an effort to contain what could potentially be an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus.
------

So perhaps it is a hoax. Im sure it could still happen though. Students pull all sorts of crap at Uni.
