Prof seems a bit touchy. On the other hand, your generation is among the most disrepectful toward education and educators in history. You can thank your parents and politicians for keeping you ignorant.

What is the subject anyway?

It's second year Fluid Mechanics according to the Original OP on that other site.

Fluid Mechanics and not paying attention. They're screwed. We're all screwed. The end of the world is coming. If only those kids shut the fuck up and learned about science. Oh this is a college class. I thought it was congress.

Oh lawdy.... that shouldn't be taught in a lecture hall... that needs the itty bitty details taught well otherwise kids these days will get lost.
But somehow, I feel awkward...
Engineering students are one of the quietest people in the classrooms.

I sat in on a class recently after having graduated 20 years ago and the kids were coming in up to 30 mins late without a care in the world making heaps of noise getting set up near the front of the class. When I went to uni no-one would consider coming in more than 5 mins late and then they would slink into the back row apologetically with a repentant body posture, possibly also mouthing sorry. I was astonished at the change in etiquette.

I think it really depends on the class. My kids are/were in the same university, and my daughter finds the engineering classes rude and loud and just like high school. My son's computer science classes were quiet and paid attention (or at least weren't disruptive). That was more like they both expected in college especially considering the cost of it now.

I had professors who locked the doors. Late? Locked out.

I hate it when people are late for self involved reasons but sometimes you overpack your schedule and don't realize you can't make it from one end of campus to another in 5 minutes. I had one class last semester I was about 10 minutes late for every session (it was about 3 hours long every time so those 10 minutes weren't THAT important...but still important). I think I know the campus better now, so hopefully I don't do that again.

Your mountains of debt are due to Obama's student loan programs. Colleges raised tuition once they saw how much money they could get through subsidized student loans.

Obama's biggest voting bloc? Millienials.

The comments made me pretty happy. Everyone was on the teacher's side, which was surprising given that usually the comments on Imgur annoy me. Poor bastard. You shouldn't behave like this in a college. I'd hate to be a teacher with a real passion for the subject, and teaching, and have to deal with a bunch of asshats who don't give a damn.

They don't care. It isn't their money. It's their parents money.

They will care in a few years when they're doing a price check for a Wal-Mart customer though.

It'll somehow be everyone else's fault though, you see? That's how this works. This thing we call "life."

This is precisely why I'm not paying for my kid's college (I'll probably help subsidize housing or tuition, but not spending money). I took out loans and worked part time for my college education, which is when I learned to actually appreciate the value of learning. Getting my degree, changing my major, choosing to put the time, money, and effort into my Master's. I run into new college graduates at my firm all the time who don't have the economic maturity I had my freshman year of college, because mommy and daddy are still paying for stuff.

It is a matter of respect. If i am there to teach you something i am doing it for your benefit... instead you are ignoring me, making my life and the life of who wants to listen hard. You are effectively sabotaging my lesson. If you are not interested... well... just go. Who keeps you there? Why are you ruining my class? Why are you interfering with the wish that others might have to learn?

I have had the unfortunate experience to teach something in a class of jerks. No one of that would listen (mostly because no one was there for their own choice), it has been a very frustrating experience. I perfectly understand that professor, in fact I left them, and I didn't return.

Agreed. I have never taught, but I actively cringe when people won't stfu. I don't understand the mentality. I think it is because they have never put effort into anything in their life so they don't know what it is to do something that even could be sabotaged. Just a theory.

I think one huge issue is that colleges actually take attendance these days and count it towards your grade. Ones that don't downright ask you to check in have you take in-class mini quizzes everyday that are essentially the same thing. So if you don't want to piss away 25% of your grade you have to show up everday regardless.

Note that I'm a huge proponent of showing up to class, I rarely missed a lecture. But I think it's ridiculous to make the kids who aren't going to pay attention anyways show up. Let them fail silently without disturbing those actually there to learn.

It just goes to show what education has become. It's not education anymore, it's just pay to get your piece of paper. It's just mind boggling that you'd pay an absurdly high amount of money for education, and not care about it, or bother to pay attention.

One reason why having a college degree doesn't mean anything anymore.

My $30k sheepskin seems to be worth quite a bit actually. Not that i directly use it but Im head of IT at a company now. I wouldn't have been able to do that without a degree of somekind without much more time in the field.

I use an airhorn. Quiets the fuckers right up, and I never have to use it twice in a semester.
