How Did They Get a Copy of My Kids' Answers?

Or, test answers we all wished we'd written...










Hat tip, Wanderer (tell me, how is mass emailing a step up from blogging?)

That's awesome. Makes me want to go back to teaching, just for the funny stories!

Oh dear g-d help me now.

Perhaps my teachers where right to wonder what was wrong with me when I decided to go in to teaching.

but seriously, these answers would be befiting of a grown up calvin. They're funny though.

Hey now, those are copies of my homework from 15 years ago.

What a riot!!

My brother actually did something like this on a differential equations test:

I think he got full credit.

The really sad part is that, once upon a time, I was an engineering major and understood and could answer all of these problems.

Now I'm in the "here it is" category.

Fortunately, I still retain the knowledge of where the red key can be found in each level of Duke Nukem.

My seventh grade teacher used to ask us to write sentences for words and I had this quirk, let me explain.
Teacher: give me sentences for for following words, homework illustrate, keyboard, punctuation and script.
Me: For homework the teacher asked us, not to use a keyboard but to write script with correct puctuation, but without any illustrations.

At first the teacher found it amusing, by the time itr was tedious it was too late to change his mind.

Hey, you took out the one where the guy hangs himself on the paper! :P

That's the best one.

PsychoToddler said...

No, the best one was not fit for this blog.

What kind of engineer did you almost become?

One of my brothers worked as a mechanical engineer before going to law school and becoming a patent lawyer. Let's just say he's a little bit happier with his career now than when he was going on business trips to Ypsilanti, Michigan to test pipes while wearing mandatory steel-toed boots.

This passed through my engineering office like wildfire last week. A few of us tried to solve the problems.

Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

also see Indexed.

this one was the one that got me hooked.

What kind of engineer did you almost become?

I was a double major in pre-Med and pre-engineering. I was planning to do the 3-2 program between YU and Columbia and then do med school and do some kind of biomechanical engineering stuff. Like make the Bionic man or woman or dog or something.

But the math and physics really started getting to me and I started to have other interests so I abandoned the engineering. I still had enough courses for a math minor.

I agree with Ezzie that the hangman one was great, and I also agree with you that the best one was not meant for a, ummmmm, family blog like this one.

Blogging was fun, but mass emailing allows me to target my audience and place my gibberish directly in the face of those I wish to annoy most. Being a spammer is lower on the totem pole and puts you closer to the bottom dwelling scum suckers than being a blogger!

PsychoToddler said...

Oh, well I can totally see how that would be appealing.

I'll put up the hangman, but I think it was maybe a little TOO geeky even for me.

MizEllie said...

Ha! My favorite is Find x. Brilliant in its simplicity.

javacurls said...

These are great! Especially loved the last two!

I like the elephant in the way. Elephants often ruin physics.

(This could be a duplicate comment. Blogger isn't playing nicely with me today.)

The BATMAN one is clutch!! I actually let our 7 yr old watch some old Adam West episodes over the summer. It was a bonding moment!
