Snowflake Posted June 3, 2004 Share Posted June 3, 2004 There were four sophomores taking Organic Chemistry. They were doing so well on all the quizzes, midterms and labs, etc. Each had an "A" so far for the semester. The four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to drive up to the University of Virginia and party with some friends there. They had a great time, but after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning. Rather than taking the final then, they decided to find their professor after the final and explain to him why they missed it. They told him they had gone to UVA for the weekend and planned to come back in time to study, but, unfortunately had a flat tire on the way back, didn't have a spare, and couldn't get help for a long time. As a result, they missed the final. The professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up the final the following day. The guys were elated and relieved. They studied that night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them. He placed them in separate rooms, handed each of them a test booklet and told them to begin. They looked at the first problem, worth five points. It was something simple about free radical formation. Cool, they thought! Each one, in his separate room, thought the exam was going to be easy. After finishing the first problem they turned the page. On the second page was written: For 95 points: Which tire? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
