The things they say in the Learning Grid

For a top-flight educational aid, some of the little signs and notices in Warwick University’s Learning Grid are a bit ambiguous.

What, for example, is implied by

“Student Advisors are here to help you with anything.”

Really? Anything? (All right – find me a girlfriend!) And the followup advice to ‘look for the blue T shirts’ didn’t help either, since there was a pile of them near the entry turnstile and their conversation wasn’t up to much.

“Please eat hot food in the atrium.”

As if we had no choice. (“Man, I’m gonna have to leave this atrium! One more mouthful and I’ll burst!”)

“There’s no such thing as a stupid question in the Grid.”

Now there’s a red-rag-to-a-bull question. “Excuse me, why does Superman wear his underpants over his tights?“)

I love the Learning Grid.
