Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

How to fail a math test with dignity. Or: "How to keep your sense of humor during a presidential election."

Number two reminds me of a final in third year calculus -- I misread a question and did a triple integration instead of double integration and got zero points. A male fellow student did the same thing and got extra points for greater difficulty!!

I hasten to add that this was so long ago that I could no longer do even a single integration -- whatever that is.

Gee, I don't think I ever studied "single, double or triple integration" in math class.

Now, poly sci was a completely different story.
