Meetings are the culmination of a lifelong education. Most of our childhood was spent preparing ourselves for meetings. As children we attended classes whose mind numbing boredom was calculated to develop high levels of tolerance so that when we get jobs and have to attend meetings, we may do so with the panache of veterans and our habituated brains will not go into mind freeze.< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The classrooms were training grounds. They increased the dosage of boredom with each passing year till by the time you enter a management institute you are supremely equipped to handle the great stress and tough schedule that they purport to provide. Enterprising students destined to go a long way in life have mastered the art of beating the tedium in various creative ways. The most effective way being of course in positioning yourself behind a particularly large fellow specimen and affecting a general body shut down. Disturbed only by the nudge of a cunningly placed accomplice or the ring of the bell, which signifies some moments of respite.
