What is the dumbest/most ignorant thing you have heard a professor say? Here are some of mine:
From my Biology prof:
Photosynthesis is an example of matter being created out of energy.
There is no difference between enthalpy and entropy.
Here's another one. It's only her personal opinion but I still think it's incredibly ignorant. We were talking about trisomy21. She wasn't able to explain why the extra 21st chromosome causes all the problems associated with Down Syndrome, but she said the egg would have been better dying before implantation. Apparently she doesn't realize that if not for the adaptability of cells and their ability to survive under less than optimal conditions, none of us would be here today.
A professor said that the Great Lakes are saltwater. It was an English class, not a Geology class, so I guess I can forgive him. I'm from Michigan, though, and I told him that we get our water from the Great Lakes. He said that they must desalinize it first!

Quote from fleur-de-lis
I have an instructor who is very country and mispronounces everything - even medical terms and words that a nurse should know. The best one was her trying to say "faux pas" and it came out "foo paw". I am from Louisiana and speak some French, and I had to put my head on my desk to keep from busting a gut on that one. I can see mispronouncing some things, but this instructor sounds truly uneducated.
ROFL Our A&P teacher was poking fun at one of the other A&P teachers who pronounces "Larynx and Pharynx" in a peculiar way ( Southern Texan style)
Merry X-mas "EVERBODY" :icon_mrgreen:
