Kids Say the Darndest Things

I'm up late grading exams for an astronomy 101 class ("astronomy for poets" as it's known in the department). Here are my favorite answers so far...

From beyond the grave: "After Tycho Brahe died he hired Kepler to do some calculations... "

Deus ex machina: "Because God made it that way."

Unprecedented precision: "distance = 3.92582453663098392748571003847624 light-years"

Honesty: "I'm sorry, I don't know. I didn't study."

Heh heh. At least there weren't any astrology references.

Sarah, from comments over at Smallest Minority- I do have finals next week, Biology 106 and Public Speaking. Park U has 8 week terms, 5 per year. Next term starts in October and finishes before Christmas and I will be done with my BS in Logistics Management.

Wow, that's an interesting system. You must get slammed during those eight weeks. We're on the semester system here, so it's two long hauls and then the summer.

Anyway, good luck with your finals, Nate!
