Another lesson from Rate Your Students

On the face of it this is another rant about the stupidity of undergrads (which I'm becoming more accustomed to, treating it as evidence of youth more than anything else). But there's a pithy comment I wanted to draw attention to which summarizes my skepticism about so-called "experimental philosophy":
THIS is why the folk don't matter -- the folk are drooling into their purses at 1 in the afternoon, ignoring their professor's meticulous explanation of why their last paper sucked and exactly what they ought to do to improve their performance.
