Some years ago I was told a story by a Professor that taught philosophy and logic. He had been told the story by a colleague, so he decided to try it.

Mid Semester test: one question...

Why?

Most of the students struggled for some time to come up with a logical answer. One student quickly wrote something and turned his paper over. The prof later looked at the paper and gave the student an "A".

The best answer, "Why not".

Actually happened!

I had to turn in an assignment and one yes took was what happens to an alternator that develops a stator coil short.
I just attached a picture of Barbara Streisand to it, and the teacher gave me full credit.

I had a psyc class several years ago that everyone was told to read all the questions before answering. The last thing on the paper was to put your name and date on the paper and that was all. then turn it in. People looked at me really strange when I took my paper up in a couple minutes and walked out of the class room. I was the only one in there that didn't answer the rest of the questions. I was also the only one to pass that test....;)

Actually hapened.

Had a philosophy class in the early 1970's and the professor posed a hypothetical question to the class to see how we would reply.

He set up a scenario stating that a roving gang of bad bikers had kidnapped his wife and kids and told him he would have to have sex with a sheep in front of the whole campus student body or they would kill his family.

So naturally, to save his family, he said he would have sex with the sheep in front of the whole student body.

The question he then posed to the class was:

"After doing this to save my family, how would you, as my students or colleagues, respond to me when I said hello to you as I walked past you on campus?"

Guy in front of me raised his hand and responded "Bahhhhh!!":D

I gave that test to a couple of Basic Peace Officer classes I coordinated. Was fun to see the poeple doing the stuff listed in the test. Very few did it right.
