### I thought we were talking about video games

1. POPULATION: The population of Bulgaria has been decreasing at an annual rate of 1.3%. If the population of Bulgaria was about 7,797,000 in the year 2000 predict its population in the year 2010.

0. There will be a cheesecake shortage

2. DEPRECIATION: Carl Gossell is a machinist. He bought some new machinery for about %125000. He wants to calculate the value of the machinery over the next 10 years for tax purposes. If the machinery depreciates at the rate of 15% per year, what is the value of the machinery (to the nearest $100) at the end of 10 years?

$0. It will be stolen by rats by then.

3. ARCHAEOLOGY: The half-life of a radioactive element is defined as the time is takes for one-half a quantity of the element to decay. Radioactive Carbon-14 is found in all living organisms and has a half life of 5730 years. Consider a living organism with an original concentration of Carbon-14 of 100 grams.

a. If the organism lived 5730 years ago, what is the concentration of Carbon-14 today?

Who cares?

b. If the organism lived 11460 years ago, determine the concentration of Carbon-14 today.

I thought we were talking about video games.

4. DEPRECIATION: A new car costs $32000. It is expected to depreciate 12% each year for 4 years and then depreciate 8% each year thereafter. Find the value of the car in 6 years.

No one will drive cars in 6 years with fuel going up like it is.

HILARIOUS!!!!!

### Chuck Norris and The Devil

Who is your favorite super hero?

I'd have to say Chuck Norris. He once sold his soul to the devil for rugged good looks and unlimited martial arts ability. Soon after the transaction Chuck Norris roundhouse hicked the devil in the face and took his soul back. Because the devil appreciates irony he could not stay mad at Chuck and laughed it off admitting he should have seen it coming.

(I had not idea about the econ question)

If only all your answers were this creative.....

(Charles Bronson would kick Norris' ass by the way)

(Did you see Dodgeball?)

Oh Chuck Norris, is there anything you can't do (besides help this student pass the test?)

### Big Trouble in Little China

让这个学生满分被滑稽

For those who don't read Chinese, apparently the student was supposed to write the opposite of the chinese character, but instead just wrote the same character upside down and backwards.

For those that do read Chinese, can you verify what I just said?

Update!!!!!!

from Frank:

Directions say: (part 3) Write the opposite word... 8 points.

1. left

2. up

3. small

4. come

### Nifty Caricature Day

Xai sent this hilarious one to me.

"During school one day, I was working on my latest homework assignment for math. One of the questions absolutely stumped me, so I passed the time by drawing a little caricature of the man who inspired Godwin's Law. I finally figured out the question later that evening, and before I turned it in the next day, I decided to shoot for a little extra credit, just in case. So I wrote the request above the caricature, and turned in the assignment.

Thanks Xai!

So I wrote the request above the caricature, and turned in the assignment.

Sadly, I received no extra credit. But at least I didn't lose any points due to my inappropriate caricature, either. Anyway, the scan is in the attachment. I thought maybe you guys would enjoy this."

Thanks Xai!
