Some prat has just set off the fire alarm in my building AGAIN. Its happened about 5 times in the last 2 weeks! I know its someone downstairs because the smell of slightly singed food has just wafted up to my floor. Okay, its going to happen once, maybe twice but you'd think someone would learn how to not burn their own meals after a while!! This time I didn't even bother leaving my room.
Got my first two example sheets today, and neither look too bad. Infact, the Symmetries in Particle Physics one looks decidedly tame from what I was expecting! Shame about the actual lectures. Today 4 people piped up complaining the lecturer hadn't defined something correctly, and spent 5 minutes politely arguing with him about why he needed to put the word "smooth" into a definition, despite him saying "Its not relevant to this section".
Didn't these people learn in their 1st year, never ever call out anything in lectures! Two of them then proceeded to converse in fast, slightly angry Russian with one another clearly thinking the lecturer was wrong.
At least I hammered someone in squash....
