Kirby was great teacher, I got an A1 in LC. He would threat the "thickos" with such contempt, it was so amusing watching how he would refuse the lower level guys T Squares, because "they don't deserve them".

Very good teacher, bit fond of throwing erasers at you from the board, was pretty accurate too! probably due to proficiency in vectoring angles haha.
