I am reading them in that order; I own the 'Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'. Isn't 'And Another Thing' the Eoin Colfer book six? Also, I'm on 'Resteraunt at the end of the universe' now.

Bobby: Oh, I am, you drop in a jungle and I'll make me some monkey friends!
Casey: But won't the monkeys attack you?
Bobby: No, cuz if they attack me then I'll sick my gorilla friends on them :mrgreen:
Teacher: Okay! Well back to the warm-up....

Later in the same class...
Bobby: I'm gonna buy me a barge, and get a bunch of rocks and then go out into the bay and drop all the rocks in a shallow part and make myself an island!
Teacher: Well you have some interesting ideas....
Bobby: Oh I do! And on my island I'm gonna pour a bunch of sand on it and then get some grass and make a little golf course and get some Iguanas and my monkey friends and a palm tree and a cooler of beer! And then I'll get a bunch of women on my island :mrgreen:
Teacher: Oh, I was worried about how you were going to reproduce....since you only had monkeys and iguanas hahaha
Casey: But won't you get bored and have nothing to do after awhile?
Bobby: No cuz if that happens I'll just get some more women haha
*whole class starts laughing*

Teacher: You've used this equation since the dawn of time, when dinosaurs ruled the Earth
Student: Dinosaurs were significantly after the start of time...
Teacher: Good point, well made.

Teacher: taking the piss out of [student] for having a tiny head.
*Headmaster walks in*
Student:Hello sir!

Student: I'm probably going to drop physics
Teacher: but, you're my favourite
Student: That's it, I'm definately dropping physics.
Teacher: Fine then, your target in physics is to grow a larger head.


Teacher: Say you're a big corporation and you want to make the most money from your enzyme, what do you do?
Student: Patent it!
Teacher: Not quite, you increase it's effectiveness.

Teacher: How do you stop an enzyme denaturing at high temperatures?
Student: Laminate it!
Teacher: Close enough...

I guess that being in an AP Bio class, he should know, but it isn't a crime to not know what an echinoderm is.

I never meant to imply that. It was just funny at the time because he usually doesn't participate in discussions.

From a 'Race, Crime and Criminal Justice' Seminar yesterday discussing stereotypes Afro-Carribean youth culture in Britain:

Lecturer: So, we've got guns, drugs, and women from rap music, but what else could the youth culture get from rap music? Perhaps moreso from older music...
Me: Hammertime?

That's more or less it, I'm fuzzy on the details.

Ok spoiler alert, both of these are me, but they were suitably hilarious and should be shared:

Last year I was in a US history class, it essentially covered 1877 to present (we had all taken the colonial era to 1877 the previous year)
we were somewhere in the 1960s i think or maybe just finishing the 50s and we had a test on that time period, while we were doing this the teacher was setting up a video for us to watch on the early 60s, namely the Kennedy administration
So there we all were, completely quiet, working away, when out of nowhere the computer that the teacher was setting up decided to turn on its speakers for about 2 seconds while the teacher was getting to right point in the video
video- "...and at 2:00 in the afternoon President Kennedy was shot and killed by a sniper.." (teacher quickly turns it off)
Me(before anyone can even react)- "Spoiler alert!"
*insert hilarity here*

that same year in my algebra II class, a few weeks later
*students all working on whatever worksheet'
teacher- "..and I expect very good grades on tomorrow's test."
me- then you will be sorely disappointed."

In my biotech class class year my teacher decided the easiest way to teach us about the basic shape, construction and general molecules that make up DNA was for everyone to get in groups and build perfectly scale models of DNA (we also had to make a poster-board about important facts or a powerpoint but that not important). Being the genius I am, I decided to make it myself and make it a 1 angstrom = 1 centimeter scale. The model was 10 feet tall and scraped the ceiling. I got to school early and had to store it in another teachers class for like 15 minutes. Here's the conversation I had with my partner while I was trying to move it.
Me: Ok now slowly pick up your end and twist it a little so we can get this thing to safety.
Friend: Ok I got it.
Me: Be careful
Friend: (about 2 seconds later when the hall were crowded and a majority of the people in the hall had no idea what was going on) BRENT YOUR TWISTING IT THE WRONG WAY!!! (sorry aboiut the caps but he really did yell it)

Needless to say we got many strange stairs, and my teacher didn't let that one go for the rest of the day. =/

...you do know that was sarcasm, right? Especially considering that it was followed with him making a 10-foot high model that was completely impractical. So just chill on the rage, OK, dude?

Depending on the course, it can be fairly unusual. Many tests are just there to indicate how you're doing before you come to an exam that's actually weighted.

It could be possible they only meant did it change the letter, which it may not have if the total number of points was very large in comparison to the value of the test.

Well, this is highschool I'm talking about, where tests are pretty much exams (Except midterms or finals). Tests usually consist of 30-50% of the final grade (I think it was 50% for that particular class).

Nah, here in New York, we don't get letter grades in highschool.
