HANOVER, NH—According to students enrolled in professor Michael Rosenthal’s Philosophy 101 course at Dartmouth College, that guy, Darrin Floen, the one who sits at the back of the class and acts like he’s Aristotle, seriously needs to shut the fuck up.
His fellow students describe Floen’s frequent comments as eager, interested, and incredibly annoying.
“He thinks he knows about philosophy,” freshman Duane Herring said. “But I hate his voice, and I hate the way he only half raises his hand, like he’s so laid back. We’re discussing ethics in a couple weeks, but I don’t know if I can wait that long before deciding if it’s morally wrong to pound his face in.”
“Today he was going on and on about how Plato’s cave shadows themselves represent the ideal foundation of Western philosophical thought,” said freshman Julia Wald moments after class let out Monday. “I have no idea what Plato’s ideal reality is, but I bet it doesn’t include know-it-all little shits.”
Wald added: “If he uses the word ‘dialectical’ one more time, I’m going to shove my copy of The Republic down his throat.”
Although he demonstrated a familiarity with Peter Singer’s view on famine relief during a discussion of John Locke’s theory of property, Floen is reportedly unfamiliar with the theory of cramming it for a change and giving someone else a chance to speak.
my little brother just sent me the most important onion article of all time except i’m confused because i thought the onion was a satirical publication but i’m pretty sure this is 100% fact.
As someone who definitely was that guy for way longer than he should have been, allow me to express the wish that someone had cared enough to pound my face in.
