No, I'm not referring the absent minded professor. Just find it a little ironic- my professor who requires 100% attendance this semester has missed the first two classes. No worries though, he's managed to assign (through various assistants and such) about 12 pages of handouts for homework exercise and 2 take home Chemistry tests. We're now self teaching and self testing.
Besides, it's not like chemistry is a hard class where a student might benefit from actual student/teacher interaction and such... you know?
