So they find a way to clone dinosaurs off amber-encased DNA, hypothetically. New technology, and there's a lot of dinosaurs they can clone. This mass cloning becomes so mundane that businesses form around them. Which of these dinosaur-related businesses would you patronize?
Let's say Bigfoot was captured. Holy cow, he's real! What would you like to see happen to him?
Hypothetical. You're in the woods, camping (sure, why not?). As you're gathering firewood, alone, you hear a stick crack under foot. You turn to the sound, and see a 7' tall humanoid. It's large and muscular and bipedial, covering in brownish hair, shambling along. Its arms seem to be of average human length, stopping around the crotch-level, and swing side to side when walking, much more human than ape. It doesn't notice you as it continues its way to its cryptozoological destination. What is it you think you saw?
Among Others - Jo Walton
Wool - Hugh Howe
Use of Weapons - Iain M. Banks

What's a nice, non-tattle-tale way to write to the head of the department about how lacklustre and irresponsible a certain professor has been?
There are two weeks of class left and we haven't received any grades; he still hasn't gotten around to marking our essays that we handed in seven weeks ago. We have a final paper worth 50% of our grade due in two weeks, but he wasn't in class today and hasn't communicated anything about the paper with us. This class meets once a week, so if he explains it in class next week, that will give us one week to write this paper (we have no idea how long it's supposed to be).
He did explain to us that he has some ongoing medical issues, which I am very sympathetic towards, but at the same time, I feel like some kind of accommodations should have been made if he can't complete his work in a reasonable amount of time. I don't want to whine, but it's not fair to leave us in the dark about our grades and assignments.
Basically, I don't think he's all that into teaching or grading or anything, and I'm worried about that. I don't know exactly how to express what I'm worried about, but this status of this class has me feeling uneasy. Any tips? Suggestions? Ideas?
Edit: Since it has come up a couple times, yes, I have tried to communicate with him to no avail (obviously, there are two weeks of class left and he still hasn't done anything for the class).
