11:36 am - warning: bring a crowbar to class
So I'm in my calculus class, a math class dealing with NUMBERS. Keep this in mind, it's important. One of the variables (the x) in the equation is the "annual income of a family in the 1920's". The conversation in class begins like this:
Prof.: So what did they make in the 1920's?
Girl: HATS!
Prof: Care to explain?
Girl: You know, they wore alot of hats back then. Top hats, caps, sun hats...ect, ect.

At this point I begin to re-read the question to assure myself I understood the question correctly.

Prof: Class, do you all agree?
Class: Yeah, thats a good answer.

I've lost it by now. I begin to think whether or not this is some huge joke.

Smarter Girl: while turning to the original girl He meant what kind of an income did they make
Girl: Oh

I notice that the news did not shock or embarrass her. It didn't even phase her . She sat back down and began to mind her own business.

The moral of the story: Any one can go to college. Even those who think "hats" is an appropriate variable to plug into a calculus equation.

That moral's true, just the other day in Speech, my friends and I all cracked up over the thought of putting meatspin on the overhead project. None of us is as dumb as all of us.
