GHB as a date rape drug should probably be illegal outright, but in the case of LSD and peyote there's no serious health risk either short or long-term. And yeah, we should base these sorts of laws on empirical evidence and societal impact rather than what one perceives to be "common sense".
I've got bad news and a likely change of plans. He just added a final project at the end of Mechanical that will eat up a good week or longer. Then, I found out that to get a good grasp of Civil, I need 8-9 weeks, not just 6 weeks. I may not have time to do Civil if I'm looking at another 10-11 weeks total. I would be looking at May 30 at the earliest. The semester ends June 5... Without Civil, I'm looking at possibly March 28 after Spring Break...
Russ Powers accepts nothing less than perfection, and so what if you're delayed a few weeks?
First off, I have bills to pay and secondly, I don't want to run out of time the beginning of June in case I get delayed for whatever reason and then be forced to come back in August.
You've seen how often the finish date has changed just since the beginning of the year, so I'm not guaranteed to be finished by May 30. I should be, but the fluidity of the situation is too much to overcome. Without Civil, I should be done before April 1.
Why has the finish date changed so much, and why did he wait until the end of the middle of the semester to announce the addition of a week-long assignment?
The finish date has changed so much because of different reasons. The cleanup is one and there are other factors. He just found the items for the project during this morning's tornado drill. He then said "Oh, this would be good for a final project." I thought to myself, "really? you just find this and add it out of the blue? sheesh." Granted it is a great project to finish up Mechanical with as it pretty much utilizes everything we've learned since August, but I was upset that he decided to add it now, when I'm almost done and have a job application in the cooker. He did tell me, though, that if I'm hired before I'm finished with the project then we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, but if we play the "what-if" game all day long, we'll never get anything done.
Adding large projects at the end of a class isn't something a good instructor would do. It shows disorganization. Do you still think he's a good instructor, or has this changed your opinion of him at all?
Of course Russ Powers is a good instructor. He's holding Bushie to a high standard, which if Bushie can deliver on said project means that he has attained just a bit of the glory which Russ Powers graciously shares with his students.
