Regarding the last entry in "no sympathy from professors," I believe it was Dr. Frank Stagg at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (when it WAS a theological seminary)that suggested the president confer a PhD. on everyone within the sound of his voice, including dogs, at opening convocation. Then those who only wanted a degree could leave with one and those who wanted to learn could study unimpeded by the degree only class.

A good idea.

Have to confess I really enjoyed the list of lines that get no sympathy from the professor. Those were classic.

Cipro, the magical drug that kills everything... including Ann Pittman. I'm allergic to it. Almost died taking it once. Fun story though. It was kind of like pulp fiction, when he sticks the adrenaline needle in her heart...
