    I had a student say to me, "This school sucks!" I said, "I know it sucks, that's because life sucks, and we are trying to prepare you for it."
    He had no response...

    I got # 10 right. That isn't saying much though, I work for the FAA.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I had a student say to me, "This school sucks!" I said, "I know it sucks, that's because life sucks, and we are trying to prepare you for it."

    That, gentle readers, is conceptual bedrock.

    No wonder they finally just told me to leave after putting my name on the test! The one in college was about the same and if you stay long enough they eventually give a piece of paper and graduate you. Thats what all the money went to, that little piece of paper with your name on it.

    6) The Canary Islands in the Pacific are named after what animal?

    That's strange, when did they move the Canary Islands from just off the coast of north Africa to the Pacific Ocean? I never got that memo.
