    humblenudge:

    lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

    That’s 140 ticks, one for every “uh” or “um” uttered by a presenter at the academic publishing conference I am attending — in about 10 minutes.

    Maybe someone here has a textbook on public speaking.
