In two hours I have to give a presentation with 3 other people on the government violation of the separation of church and state.

...I am nervous... I don't like getting up in front of classes. It's especially hard giving speeches in front of a class, because none of them really want to be there and listen to you speak on some hot button topic. Sometimes people are good sports and will participate, but most of the time they sit there-comotose-staring at you, just waiting for you to strip naked and start dancing or do something a little more exciting then clicking through a power point slide show and a few video clips.

I don't mind watching speeches. Some groups are really awesome... but then there are some that are just snooze-fests! Those classes end up lasting longer than the ones where the teacher just lectures. At the end of the presentation the teacher has to poke and prod each group member about their portion of the topic. Then they open it for the whole class to ask questions and silence fills the classroom. Maybe someone will cough... and then the teacher sets you free.

THE END (Always a BAD way to end your presentation!)

I hate presentations too...especially when they're videotaped!

Just picture them all in their underwear and try not to get a hard-on.
