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

A lot of my fellow students would have a couple of joints before lectures.
and, on thinking about it, I could see why - when stoned one can really get into stuff. I decided to give it a try.

The lecture was about semantics, and I spent the entirity of it absorbed by the visuals of the rotating ceiling fan.

Come the following seminar, then, I was utterly clueless, and still very stoned.

The moderator opened up, "So - are we all happy with that, then? Basically, we know a cat is a cat because it's not a rat or a mat, and ..."

"Well that's bollocks" I said.

"Go on." said the moderator, encouragingly.

"Well - it's obvious. A dog is called a dog because it says "dog", not "bark" or "woof". "Dog! Dog! Dog!" and that's why the French call them "chien" because they've all got those stupid yappy little rats that just go "Chien! Chien! Chien!" ...

Er ... right ... ?

That made me lol.
We went to an economics lecture out our faces on acid and strong weed, found a sticker someone had put on the desk with a round button and the words"lecturer destruct button", written on it, and spent the lecture doing that snorty trying not to lol thing. Strangely, the idea of just leaving never occured...
