Because it wasn't taught by the math/computer science department and because of academic politics, CS students had to take that class when I was an undergrad. They graded on attendance, so we had to show up, but we turned it into torment the poor TA hour. All his windows would run away from his mouse one day, all the text in powerpoints would get translated into pig latin the next, voice synthesizers on every machine in the classroom started shouting profanity at each other the next. I enjoyed that class very much.

They made an exception for CS students a few semesters after I took it.
