Hey there, time traveller!

So the profs at the University of Manitoba are thinking of going on strike again (U of M profs vote in favour of strike, Oct. 11)? Let me remind them what happened last time they tried that.
I went down to the Allen Building and found a class of students with no prof and I started teaching physics. Someone in administration called the police and had me dragged off. Then they gave me a letter saying if I ever came back, I would be arrested for trespassing. The strike ended two days later.
As far as I'm concerned, a university strike isn't a real strike with workers trying to get more money out of their bosses. It's more like a concerted posturing between a bunch of professors and a bunch of ex-professors (the administration) to jointly squeeze more money out of the government by holding the students hostage.
And in case they're wondering, yes, if they go on strike again, I'm definitely coming back.
