Falling Hydro Flask Most Outspoken Member Of Lecture
MCGUINN HALL — In Tuesday’s Globalization II lecture, a 32-oz Hydro Flask officially became the class’s most outspoken participant when it toppled off a desk and hit the ground with a “CLANK!” that echoed throughout the room. The Hydro Flask, belonging to Linda Pound (MCAS ’21), reportedly was the only one to respond when the professor asked the class what they had thought about the previous evening’s assigned reading.
Pound clearly did not enjoy being associated with Global II’s most active participant claiming that it was “so embarrassing” to be sitting near someone who is “so loud” and “honestly no one is really that interested.”
Professor Tobias Sink, however, appeared thrilled by the prospect of having so many Hydro Flasks in class. “It no longer feels like I’m speaking to an empty room,” said Sink. He later added that he was “highly impressed with their level of participation and engagement with the material.”
At press time, Linda’s Hydro Flask could be seen preparing to comment on Nietzsche’s moral philosophy in Philosophy of the Person II.
