T-Rex: ... and that concludes my talk. Thank you!
T-Rex: Any questions?
Dromiceiomimus: Can you go back to slide 2 and explain the basic premise of your argument? I wasn't paying attention.
T-Rex: Why certainly!
T-Rex: Imagine yourself in Ancient Greece
Utahraptor: Hey!
T-Rex: Whut?
Utahraptor: I'm the session chair. You don't have time to take questions
T-Rex: Can I ask them?
T-Rex: Who wants to see me punch the chair?

The author writes:

If you're presenting at a conference, for Pete's sake, pay attention to your session chair, and don't usurp their role by asking for questions! Especially if you're already over time!
