This one, for sheer effort that must have gone into it.

Damn you all for having this thread! My school's online filter blocks YouTube. Of course, I am so easily distracted that this may be a blessing. :)

I just find it quite strange you'd be on youtube. It's a very studenty sort of thing to do. I can just imagine you shouting at a load of kids for going on youtube, and then after they leave you just sitting down with a sandwich going round looking at funny videos :lol:

Actually, it's quite an effective teaching tool. I teach a contemporary issues class, bits from the Daily Show, etc. can make a nice break, segue, or intro to something. Having to backdoor into YouTube is a pain, but we still do it.

Nothing is banned on the internet at my college, but if you go on it, it's tracked and you just get banned from the college intranet. Bit of a bugger that.

But at my old school, nearly all the game sites were blocked (I did a GCSE in IT, and spent 4/5 lessons on internet games). We finally managed a way round it - open up Microsoft Frontpage, type in the link, then preview it and click on the link. It will take you to that page without the block via internet explorer (or firefox). :wink:

Mt wife's district is TERRIBLE. She often can't get on sites from which she is trying to get resource material - even publishers' sites or similar. At her old school, they even blocked their own mail server!

i agree, we use a lot of youtube in med school; there's plenty of gruesome (you've been warned!) medical procedures you can watch that make it a great learning tool, like removal of a hydatid cyst from a person's brain. For those of you wondering, the cyst isn't actually attached to the surrounding tissue, so the neurosurgeon squirts saline behind the cyst to lubricate and force it out without puncturing the cyst (in order to avoid releasing billions of larval parasitic tapeworms).

Here's one for you, Celeritas. My brother-in-law just had an acoustic neuroma removed. The thing was 13 years old, entwined around the auditory nerve, and abutting - though not yet ingrown - the brain stem. The neurosurgeon was actually able to debulk the tumor from the inside out, leaving only the neuroma's capsule, and thereby avoiding any damage at all to any facial nerves. Normal prognosis is at least 3-6 months of partial facial paralysis, with a fair to middling chance of permanence.
