[Letter from L.G. Weeber to Salient. Vol 35 No. 3. 15th March 1972]
After going to sleep in most of my Psyc. I lectures so far, I have come to the conclusion that it is not only the boring lecture material, and the poor ventilation, but the shape of the seats.
The seats look superficially, very comfortable, but after about 5 minutes leaning against the vertical back, you are forced to lean on the desk for the rest of the lecture, or at least slump in the seat. These postures are bad for correct breathing and lead rapidly to drowsiness. Whoever designed these seats should be forced to spend a couple of years in them, and whatever profit he made out of the design should be contributed to a failed student's fund.
