The Law Of BrainPower

The Law of brainpower states that in a classroom, the amount of concentration that can be used on the matter at hand is:
a)fixed
b)directly proportional to its area,
c)inversely proportional to its strength, and
d)never big enough for the whole class

this can be shown through the equation:
I=kA/n,
where
I=concentration,
n=number of students,
A=area,
k= is the constant of proportionality, which can be defined as the value of discipline of the teacher
k rises as the teacher becomes more strict about discipline, and has a value of 0 when there is no teacher present.
Therefore, there is a set amount of concentration, or brain power, that can be used in a class at any one time. The law of brain power states that after the concentration limit is reached in any class, the rest of the students are distracted. If the actual concentration is greater than the theoretical limit, the one (or more) distracted students will disturb the rest of the class until the concentration is less than the limit.
To use an analogy, only a certain amount of individual brains can be switched on at any point in time. If an extra brain is switched on, another brain will switch off to compensate.

mi having really strange dreams, and its getting to me

hff..
ok then,

why the heck would
someone actually wake up
on a monday morning, knowing
that there is a whole
week of school just waiting to
happen.

or wake up even
on a saturday morning,
knowing that there's
just a whole day to waste
and you'll feel terribly
guilty
at the end of it.

the discovery has been made,
the inspiration has been found,
(i'm running out of metaphors here)
the whatever it is has happened,
but there's always sleep at the end of it...
so whats the point?

do you know that awful cringe feeling you get, when you know that some one is going to be late to class, since he's not here yet and he's in school, and everyone knows that this teacher, of all the teachers in the world, is picky about punctuality, and when he comes in, you think oh god, hes deaddddddddddddd and then you realise, you miscounted, and there's some one else who's also late and just has to come in 5 minutes after the teacher has visibly prevented himself from ripping the first guy to shreds, and as he gets started with the second student, you're laughing at his misfortune and rejoicing that you didn't pick that time to be late but are also hoping that the teacher doesn't look your way and you stare at the floor and hope to your very heart that the problem, the teacher or the student disappear, because there is no way in hell that you are ever going to look either of them in the face again.
and there's the other feeling, the one with relief and despair, because though the teacher's finished shouting at someone, you know he's in a bad mood and one wrong move will send you to the pit of doom, and then the most logical part of your brain tells you 'this is just the beginning...' and takes care to emphasize the dots.
