We were scheduled to brief the new students on the subject Geography in a one hour slot to be shared with History, but an administrator took away the first 15 minutes. Then the History teachers came on. I grew anxious as they went past 35 minutes. When we finally came on, we had only 15 minutes left. I began by saying, "We have a problem: we have to tell you in 15 minutes all about Geography... But, we are used to disasters. Even when the ground shift beneath us, we stay cool!" There! We had them right from the start.
