“When sitting in class, The Ostensible Listener allows the user to achieve an appearance of attentiveness. In reality, the user is really using his hands to rest his chin upon, so as not to fall asleep in said class.

I use this all the time; it works wonders. However, professors tend to assume that you are listening extremely hard; when in reality, you are hardly listening (if at all).”
