It's dreary and overcast today. See, if we had a Dunkin Donuts here, I wouldn't have had to sleep in two hours. Back east it is quite often unpleasant outside, and the thought of going to work just makes things worse, so what you do is start your day by filling your body with greasy sugary shit out of spite. Well, I'm sure it will be unpleasant here in the summer, but then it will just be like an oven and greasy stuff won't be appealing.
On this week's quiz my students had to find the average height between 5'6" and 5'10". Many seem to have needed to convert these heights to 66" and 70", then add them together and divide by two to get 68", which is 5'8". I know I have a talent for math, but I thought this would be a no-brainer, no-pencil-pushing kind of question. All I wanted to know was that they understood what an additive allele was, not how good their arithmetic was.
