Well, 87 got me an A on a test. Allow me to explain. Last week, I had a Geography 101 quiz. Easy, but I came to a question that I didn't know (didn't study). So, I wrote 87 as an answer. I got it right. You see, the teacher somehow interpreted 87 as "location" which was the correct answer. If I would have got that one wrong, I would have got a B.

Geography, eh? Where's the part about why Bush is Hitler and why we deserve to be attacked for growing tobacco?

Jeez man you're handwriting is almost as bad as mine, except mine is smaller. Over here we have curves too, which is why My <70 score in MIS111 ended up as a B

My normal handwriting is actually worse than that. I was writing nicer for a test.

They must teach that in mathematics in his school.

That reminds me of a History of Western Civ class I took where one of the questions was to describe the Tudor Dynasty. I had no idea so I wrote about Tudor style housing complete with drawings.

The professor wrote on the exam, "Nice Bullshit!" and gave me half credit. Perhaps this wasn't suprising from a professor whose name was Jack Nicholson (not the famous guy, but same name).

"Physical Geography 101"

Looks like "college" to me.

And he got an "A". But doesn't everyone in Kali get an "A" on tests, so as not to damage their self esteem?

Yeah, the "professor" label was a tip, but I was hoping it wasn't true.

I took physical geography in college, and it was nothing like that. We studied meteorology, climatology, plate tectonics, biogeography, geomorphology, pedology, and hydrology. It was a real science course.

And that was in liberal CA too.

"Most broadest?"

Did the professor write that quiz?

You don't use a superlative like "most" with a word with an -est ending.

and what's up with all the " marks around words as if you couldn't figure it out without the "clues". That looks like a "science" course for "non-science" majors.

I study all that too. In geology.

This is an easy geography course (probably for non-science majors). It's really easy and boring.

I did this stuff in MIDDLE SCHOOL. Same stuff, no joke.

HOWEVER, this test is on the intro chapters. We have since done meteorology and are switching to the second instructor and plate tectonics after the midterm (week after next). None of it will be covered as well as it is in geology of course.

To be honest, I just registered for semi-random classes this semester. I needed 12 units so that my health insurance wouldn't go away.

Geology is quite interesting though, and I have a great instructor.

I always got my balls busted about a curve. I had a lot of teachers who said: "When I was in college, I was the one that set the curve, so why should my grade help people who didn't study as much." I raised my hand and said: "Because they were also trying to have some fun while in college?" He didn't like it. Curves as always nice though.

Who might be a member of arfcom if his/her grammar and recognition of "87" as the answer to end all answers are any indication.

That would be geography, he is the one that "recognized" the 87.
