This is a question Training courses, seminars and conferences

Inspirational or a waste of precious slacking-off time? I once went on a buzzword bingo-laden training course which ended up with my being held at gunpoint in public. Could have gone better, to be honest. Tell us your tales from either side of the lectern

Unfortunate physics.
Seminar for kids about physics. The excitable bloke running it was trying to be all accessible. So when he was scribbling equations up and talking about the examples, rather than, say "current" he'd say the "I-ness" and for "speed" the "v-ness".

Took about a minute before he was baffled by enquiries about power, pressure, area, acceleration, but was delighted to be so popular with all the attendees.

*Was funny when I was 15. It's probably not funny if you're not 15.

I've just run this past a 15 year old. They don't think it's funny either.

Maybe it's the way you tell them
but no, probably not. Again, my profuse apologies, as I appear to have particularly annoyed you on this QOTW.

You could just put me on ignore? I don't intend to annoy you. Honestly. I have no idea who you even are. I have enough people I intend to annoy already.
