The prof smiled. Brings to mind my Freshman Chemistry class, taught by a professor with very similar philosophies. One day, near the end of a rather long (and boring, IMHO) lecture, a student picked his books up and started to leave a few minutes early. The professor stopped him and said, "Where do you think you're going?" "To the bathroom." "And why are you taking your books with you?" "You're not going to stop class for me are you?" "Well, no..." "Gee, I can't afford to miss any of THIS!" Of course, the professor let him go.
