The Wizard

I think this just exemplifies how stupid the name 'wizard' is for 'a user interface element where the user is presented with a sequence of dialog boxes'.

Complimentary Angles

3. Name an angle complimentary to BDC:
You look much thinner from over here

Too bad there aren't any marks on this one, because I'd be curious to see if the teacher took this as flattery, an insult or just stupidity.

Orlando Bloom, Hobbits and Demand Curves

...On a demand curve, the curve will shift left because Orlando bloom receives blowjobs from hobbits. No, it will really shift left because...

If you think I am not reading things carefully enough, you are wrong. This is very disrespectful and you need to be careful. I am letting this one go, but other TAs may not be that easy going.

BUSTED!!!!!!!!! Nice try though...

Extra Credit

Extra Credit (2 points)
Draw a picture. Be creative!

You have to admit that the teacher was basically asking for it what he/she made a bonus question like that. Kudos to the teacher for following through on the bonus marks!

WTF Essay

What I would like to see in my aged parents/grandparents.
I am a boy. Boy is a boy. Girl is a girl but I am not a girl. Why I am not a girl is because I am a boy. A very good boy. I have a sister and three parents. Two mothers and one father. They are mad people and I am their mad child. We are all mad. When they are old, I am hoping that they have earned a lot of money by then. Money is money. Not money is not money. Money is good so I like money. When they are old they will not need so much money so I can take all their money and use. Because of my three parents, there are more of them to take care of each other. I can then go and use all their money as they do not need the money. They can go and play chess or sing songs together. Redo – for Frivolous

Was this written by an ESL student just stringing words together???

Iron Infants

A study of iron deficiency in infants compared infants whose mothers chose different ways of feeding them. [...] Is there significant evidence that the mean hemoglobin level is different in the breast fed and formula-fed infants?

An iron beam has at least 3.36 x 10^24 molecules of iron per 55 grams, whereas an infant has less. Because of this the structural integrity is reduced and infants are not as strong as iron beams. If you constructed a building with infants on an iron substitute, it would probably fall apart.

Give a 95% confidence interval for the mean difference in hemoglobin level between the two groups of infants.

I am 95% confident that I'd rather build a building out of iron beams (or wood for that matter) rather than infants. Although I would build one out of iron infants.

Also, I'm 95% confident that it would be a bad idea to iron your infant.

The Definition of Work

You pull a 15.0kg crate up a ramp 30 degree ramp at constant speed. The height at a distance [?????] the ramp is 2.0m. If the 15kg crate has a weight of 150 Newtons, how much work do you have to do to move the crate up the ramp? Show your work clearly.

No work, The crane will move it for me. 0/5

I think this student is more suited for the construction industry than physics academia.

Did you notice the teacher's typo in the question?

Physics is BULL

Newton's First Law
- States that an object in motion wants to stay in motion
- Body at rest...

Drop the class! Save yourself!

Great drawing; I guess the student thinks his/her teacher is a cow?
