Share on mail It was a Thursday afternoon. Pointy hats nodded as the agenda was demolished with due mendacity and sleepy prevarication. As the biscuit hour approached, Archchancellor Mustrum Ridcully drummed his fingers on the battered leather of the table.

I am assured the rest of the continuum will catch up with it no later than Thursday. It was an accident that was waiting to happen. He was clearly enjoying himself. We are going to move on and put this behind us! Pessimal, a man of whom I know little, as Inspector of Universities. Ridcully slid the folder to his right. Er… thank you. I fear we are past the time when a little shape-changing or a couple of fireballs would do the trick.

That is not the modern spirit. It would at least pass the time until the tea turned up. The shrugging was particularly marked from the Librarian who, as an orang-utan, had more to shrug. We are the premier college of magic! As such? If they run into any problems, my door is always metaphorically open. And have you been doing more of it in the past six months than in the previous six? You can count the tables a carpenter makes, but what kind of rule could measure the amount of thought necessary to define the essence of tableosity?

The amount of thought that has gone into it is astonishing! Those 67 pages have been hard won, I can tell you! Or maybe chess. Braseneck College, indeed! It used to be the Braseneck School of Conjuring!

He used to set traps to stop students attending his lectures! Carefully directed ignorance is the key to all knowledge. Ridcully waved a hand irritably. Except, of course, that making everything better by magic only makes things much, much worse. What we do , gentlemen, is dynamically refrain from using magic. Just imagine what we could do if we turned our… uh, intellects to the political stage.

I was turned into something miscellaneous at least once a week in my first year, and it never did me any harm. Anything else? He winked. They relaxed. No, perhaps the year after next. Yes, that might be better.

Terry Pratchett: A collegiate casting-out of devilish devices

Since then it has been reprinted twice as part of the Discworld canon: once as an "extra" in some editions of Snuff , and most recently in the new anthology of short stories and ephemeral writings, A Blink of the Screen. The story concerns a meeting of the Faculty of Unseen University to urgently discuss the threat posed by an inspection of the University precipitated by Lord Vetinari.
