Lesser teachers often use plinds, but I never do. What are plinds??

Are plinds tangible objects? If not, are they teaching methods? phrases? examples? excuses?

Are they to do with preparing classes? teaching classes? exams? grading?

Do you think plinds are unnecessary? distracting? annoying? boring? a waste of time? confusing?

Are plinds commonly found in classrooms? Do the teachers who use them bring them to class with them? Are they given to the students?

Punish? Illustrate? Distract? Discipline? Keep busy? Be seen? Be heard? Writing relevant? Did plinds exist 50 years ago? 100? 1000?

Are plinds written on? If so, are they blackboards? whiteboards? flip charts?

Are they used to write on something? If so, are they a type of pen? chalk?

Is it simply the type of chalk that is relevant? or also how the chalk is used? Do the teachers use different colors/shades of chalk to color-code key terms or phrases in text? Are the pieces of chalk "plinds" only when used in this (or another specific) manner?

As another idea, do there exist sticks of chalk that are different colors at the two ends, so the person using them doesn't have to pick up a new stick to write in another color? If so, are these plinds?

Is it regular "blackboard chalk"? "sidewalk chalk"? Is it chalk that is difficult to wipe off? that leaves traces on the blackboard?

Is there any relevant aspect to the chalk other than its colour? (to clarify: we are ignoring chemical composition, length, shape, density, heterochromatism, pricing, packaging, distribution, location within the classroom etc.)

Does the chalk only become a plind if two or more are used in conjunction with each other? If so, would the two colours have to be similar? Alternatively, would a piece of coloured chalk still be a plind when used by itself, but cease to be particularly unnecessary, boring and annoying-ish?
