The provider of information in universities. If male elbowpatches are traditional (although you do get the occasional 'cool' one in jeans), if female either powersuits or dressing like a hippy. Results of a lecturer talking are as follows:
- roughly one paragraph of notes never to be used
- a quick nap

"I need a nap before clubbing tonight."
"Yeh me too, which lecturer is it today?"
"Dr D, talking on female rights"
"Nap time it is!"
