These are the notes that I took in my history lecture that I made the mistake of going to at 3 on a Friday. My wonderful lecturer Barry Bones (that is clearly not his name) sucked up a precious hour of my life.
Barry’s favourite number is 7!
Orange is Barry’s favourite colour!
Barry doesn’t know the difference between a simile and a metaphor!
Tacitus – coming from a small world, the world of the Europeans was much larger to his mind.
Barry has experience staying in bush houses, kangaroos!
Barry is cool with manslaughter.
Also, Barry did basic French, he likes to point that out.
Rolling dice?? Oh, he means question words. This is silly.
Apparently why and how are the same thing?
We should be able to pick up inferences of these things based on these question words. That’s his point.
Group 21 are a bunch of teacher’s pets. Good for them. Glad Blaine has their life together. I don’t.
Maths? Parabolas? I don’t understand. Adrian and his ‘classy’ maths.
Barry can’t speak. Matt-rices.
OOOOO the instigator’s perspective. That’s a good point Barry. I’ll do that.
Barry is a dick to people with bad eyesight.
JUGGLING SKILLS. He was in the circus.
Practice = improvement = cool to talk to at parties
It has been 20 minutes and we’re still in the padlets.
“LMS has been very slow all day”- Jo
Shout out to Rachel for being active in the padlet.
Padlet is beautiful and so are you.
ALEX! You go, write that post.
Is this a lecture? Literally, this is the worst use of 27 minutes.
BLAINE again with the great concepts. Is Blaine a female? Why are you assuming Ass Professor Barry Bones?
That super angry guy from the first week 6 reading is angry. You already knew this.
HOLY CRAP WE ARE FINALLY MOVING ON.
The chair tried to eat my cardigan.
WE ARE SPLIT 3 WAYS ON A POLL. THIS IS WILD.
Glats-bru-rary. Wow. Who pays this man.
Barry keeps secrets.
Arthur = BAZZA
Even if you’re wrong Barry doesn’t want you to FEEL like you are. Nice guy Barry Bones.
Barry doesn’t let Jo finish, proceeds to tell us how Jo feels.
Please don’t write a textbook, Barry.
A guy walked out, take me with you.
“You might not want to be a historian, you might want to be a something else” – Barry Bones 2017.
Syria would have picked A. This is significant?
The lecture is now starting properly. 38 MINUTES INTO THE LECTURE GOSH DANG.
Pre-Padlet Powerpoint (PPP)
Gildas was welsh Scottish, wrote in Latin. You know this. You were just in a tutorial, why are you here?
THE FONT IS SO SMALL ON THE POWERPOINT. I am blind. This is rude.
Barry’s holiday photo slideshow.
Another source?! Wild.
Jordanes – Gothic history, preserves lost history the plagiarising bastard. All I’m gathering is plagiarism is the real hero.
Ambrosius Aurelianus returns. Is he Arthur? Arthur’s evil twin?
Draw that bow real far Barry, keep the Roman thing going.
TEN MINUTES. Now for the bridging.
Jumping around is not something new Barry. We are used to it. It’s your MO.
Oh another map that I CAN’T SEE. BRILLIANT.
Modern Celtic Migrations. Cool. Moving on again.
Ogham Stone. 5th century. Bad Latin for stupid people. I think someone just gagged in Shep. It happened again. Help.
Tall things written to address God. That’s pretty cool man.
5 Mins Barry.
I’m packing up.
