Teacher said I was the only one to get the answer right. THAT is how you rock.
Was this at SJU or High School? Seriously, we went to college with a lot of fucking morons.

I usually read the books, but I admit to using your hubby's trick when we read books I either found incredibly tedious or just boring. Like Jane Austen.

I always thought the question was, "Will it blend?", by the way.

I read your post so fast, I swear that for a moment it looked like:

'Apparently this turned up on some piece of ass on my teacher some years ago'





yeah.........anyhow....hmmmmmmm

thing is some questions are asked as a test to see how you can survive in answering, if you can answer it.
check how daft/smart you are.

The answer: "Yes, it does... unless you're Chuck Norris"

an english teacher i had in high school once gave a 10 question pop-quiz. in the instructions it specificly said "do not answer any questions on this quiz. just sit at your desk and pretend that you're working."

75% of the class never read the instructions and failed the quiz.

We had the same sort of thing happen on the first day of YEar 7... it was a maths question and we had to read 20 questions and answer them. However question 20 was "do not complete any questions".

Everyone failed.
