Ahh textbooks: the bane of our existence.
“For my College Physics I, I had to purchase a textbook…or so I thought. I got the textbook for as cheap as I could, but it was practically unintelligible.”
“Once again, the educational system has failed at providing students with a useful tool to learn the subject. I don’t know why I even bother buying these books for classes, I always end up finding other tools to use instead.”
“I’m so bitter about the Textbooks, I HATE professors who go ‘YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS BOOK’ Only to never crack it open. Real fucking thanks.”
As another wonderful semester is upon us, let us take this time for an homage… to the hilarity of those horrible texts we spend thousands on every year, yet would prefer to send to burn in the hellish fire of a thousand suns.
Cue the Wagner!
Press “play” for a wonderful accompaniment to your reading experience.
Maybe your textbook is simply too large and dis-organized…
Or maybe your Mastering Physics codes don’t work (despite paying $100 extra)…
Or maybe, it just should never have existed in the first place…
STEWART for the WIN!
Look – even the textbook editors are in pain!
Don’t actually do it. It’s not that bad. I promise. (Photo: worldwideinterweb.com)
And for the grand finale…
…an unfortunate illustration of Potential Energy!!
NOTE: This is all in good fun.
Please… beat on your textbooks out of frustration, even burn them at the end of the semester if you have to.
But let’s not incite violence, protests, or threats to publishing companies…
Laugh away your frustrations now, so you can get down to business when it counts.
Have a good semester.
