Flowchart Friday, anyone? This one describes the process to solve all of your problems. Unfortunately, sometimes in life, you just end up going around in circles. That’s what Maury Povich taught me.

    ha, this is great.

  • While being a TA for some freshman chemistry class (the ‘ain’t we cool AP class) … I was terrified at the 1st class. Thrown in to the sharks, no one told me HOW to teach. Topic: how to use a pH meter. Of course, in the first 5 minutes someone couldn’t get theirs to work. I overcame my fear, walked over, and looked at it. “Is it plugged in?” wheeh. Next one: “is it plugged in?” yes. “Is it turned on?”

    By the end of the course, the students would call me over, and start into a litany, which always started with “it’s plugged in, it’s turned on …” I decided I was a success.

    • Reminds me of the IT Crowd. One of the techs just automatically answers the phone with “Have you tried turning it off and on again?”
