    some sweet advice for uni students on bit tech. dont do it. i had to do a presentation today and drank brandy before to chill out a bit, but ended up getting a little tipsy making a scuff of my presentation counting for important marks in my module :wallbash:

    ah well :rolleyes:

    You did it all wrong! You should have taken Red Bull! It would have given you wings, which would have allowed you to fly around the room and induce massive awe's and oooo's. The teacher would have immediately seen this, and given you 100% simply for this amazing feet of amazingness. And just think, while you're flying, you could have gotten a nice litte halo above your head so that you've got that bit of extra truthiness in your report!



    Or thats how it went in my dream anyway...

    cha! i had a group presentation on HD TV the other week, it was cool...loads of people are well nervous, but if you just calm down, and take long deep breaths you'll be fine :)

    There's quite a difference between having a drink to calm nerves (which I'm sure many of us have done)... and drinking so much alcohol, that you get yourself tipsy enough to spoil the result of such an important presentation :eeek:

    Let's hope you can make up for it in other areas :idea:

    why drink through a seminar when it's fine and dandy to sip on JD and coke through the lectures?

    I have thursday lectures at wheatley (8 miles from where i live) and they finish at 8, i'm not due to get home before 9 most thursdays which sucks, so the last lecture of the day is finished off with "the magical coke bottle" just to help things move that bit quicker

    I dont drink so never had this problem but Ive seen many slouched in lecture theatres giggling like school girls after the dinner time break (there is at least 4 pubs within the campus area that are open during the day and the union bar)
    Daft git.... deep breathes and sugar in future!

    I dont know what it's like over in England (im guessing alot more unrestrictive) but we actually have a bar on campus. I actually started out my semester with a buddy, went up to the bar and had a couple cold ones then went and sat in class for 3 hours....

    Made for a nice way to start of the semester

    Going to lectures while drunk makes them much more entertaining imo.

    Only did one presentation after a few beers once.
    Actually made it go quite well since I had no idea what I was supposed to talk about anyway.
    I wasn't nervous and just BSed my way through it.

    Aye, but being drunk from last night and being in lectures is evan more fun. Esp. if youve got Materials to sit through (that was stage one stuff). Now im a bit more reserved and we have a "raffel" every friday in our department at 3pm. Buy a ticket, get a free prize.
    Can anyone guess what the prize is? :lol:

    But the drinking before a presentation isnt realy somthing that i would do but id sure tell others to do it if it works for them, just dont cross that line of being tipsy!!!

    One of my friends' tutors tells the story that before the first lecture he ever gave he was on a weekend holiday in Amsterdam - they flew back on the Monday morning and the lecture was in the afternoon, and he was still very high when he gave the lecture - says it forever took away his public speaking nerves :D

    I love getting rat-arsed off a liquid lunch and going to afternoon lectures, but I'd never do it before a presentation. Duh...

    EDIT - VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV Yeah, that's the issue. End up absolutely dying for a piss when you've been through 3 pints and then have to sit in a lecture for an hour. Especially if you've already broken the seal at the Union :duh:

    I wouldn't ever have two swift pints before a lecture and then go for a leak, once you break the barrier you'd have to be out every 10 minutes. I wouldn't ever do that.

    Again.

    yeah going to lectures after a liquid lunch was never a good idea! Mind you the one lecturer we had always seemed to be drunk constantly!!
