While killing time yesterday as my daughters shopped at Urban Outfitters, I picked up a book, F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers (who knew Urban Outfitters sold books?) ( and couldn't stop laughing.  It's filled with wrong and/or cheeky answers by students (supposedly) on exams.  I've seen a few emails with some of these gems, but a lot were new.  So, to make my emails more entertaining – and to reward the few people with the endurance to make it to the end – I'm going to start including excerpts at the bottom of the intro section of my emails, starting with this one. Enjoy!
