Damn students on crack. Also, JT, where do you get the "answer given in exam" stuff? You're a teacher or something?

Not a chance - I'd rather spend as little time around children as possible, horrid little beasts that they are. Found it all on some teachers website.

"Keep the government out of our Medicare!" - Senior Citizens against American healthcare reform.

Not sure I really see the silly side to this, to be honest. Well, I suppose not having publically funded healthcare seems a bit silly to me as a Brit. But this quote seems quite reasonable, in the context of someone who wants the American system to remain unchanged.

Ah, I get it, Medicare is a government-run health insurance scheme. I can see the silly side now. :)
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 20 Oct 2009.
Yes, they seem to want this Medicare thing for their own pretty badly.

I love the idea of WIF users tracking down the sources of quotes and hassling them!

"Is linguistics another science of Satan? Linguists suggest that the original human language originated from southern Africa and had a lot of click consonants. This is baloney, since the original language of mankind was Hebrew. They also state that languages change over time and create different languages, while it is obvious from the Bible that languages were made different by God, as shown in the construction of Babel."

"Why [does] a person fall toward the earth when he falls from height? An apple is so near to the surface where the g (accelration due to gravity) is highest but it also fall after a very lagre time but when a person falls from a height their the g is also less and his inertia is also more as compared to a apple."

It's because the Earth's mass is about 5973.6 yottagrammes. I think you're making the mistake of equating a sphere with a point particle, resulting in misguided and irrelevant comparisons.

I am utterly horrified.

If this is what my generation holds, I refuse to partake.

That's pretty normal.. It's been that way here since dawn of time. Ancient Egyptian kids who wore <s>Jaguar Skins&trade;</b> where not always popular. Kids who wore carboard boxen and wooden barrels for clothes were.
