I got to reading some non-philosophy (though Gladwell's Blink probably isn't quite the mindless drivel that I usually turn to for a break) and in the introduction I find out students who watch 2 seconds of my teaching with the sound turned off will give me the same evals as someone who's taken my course for a semester.
Don't suppose we could speed up the process and hand out $10,000 after the students think we look pretty for 2 seconds..

ps I apprecaite STBJD's post. I don't think I can get that self-reflective until my ears stop ringing from the job market's monster bitch-slap.
