One Reason I Teach

Thanks XKCD…

[alt text = “saying ‘what kind of idiot doesn’t know about the Yellowstone supervolcano’ is so much more boring than telling someone about the Yellowstone supervolcano for the first time.”]

Same with the law. I get a warm feeling in my heart the first time a student hears a judge scream “I know what the law is!” while doing the obviously illegal thing, or the first time a student hears a professional witness blatantly lie under oath, or the first time a student realizes how messy the world really is. It’s not Diet Coke and Mentos, but it can make your head explode.
