Just wanted to add this. The incidents listed below are ACTUAL incidents 
and not made up when I was doing my B.E. @ Siddaganga Institute of Tech., 
Tumkur affliated to Banglore University.

1.  We had a Civil professor (the intellectual level is shown by this) 
who used to say "Open the doors of the windows and let the atmosphere 
come in"

2.  We used to have a metal workshop where you'd make metal cuttings 
using chisel, files etc to a specific design. The instructor (who was 
just a technician) when he noticed some was using the "filing tool" to 
fast he would walk up them and say in a very quick paced manner " File, 
File, File, File ..N0!" and then change his tone to a much slower pace 
and say "File.....File......File...." meaning that don't file too quick, 
but slowly.
