That ************.

Last year, I was enrolled in a Philosophy class at my college. I was never
particularly good at thinking philosophically, so I barely scraped my way
through the class. When it came to be finals time, I started hearing rumors
about how difficult the Philosophy final was going to be. A guy told me the
final the year before was to write an assay in response to the question "What
came first: the chicken or the egg?" My friend (who was also in the class and
shared my lack of skills) and I were terrified. The day of the final
finally arrived and I was handed a paper with a single question:
Why?
I stared stupidly at the paper for about ten minutes trying desperately to
comprehend what I was looking at and figure out how in the hell I was going to
answar this titanically vague question. I finally glanced over at my friend and he
glanced back at me. His glance told me he and I were in the same boat. Finally,
after about an hour, an answar finally came to me out of the blue. I responded
to the question with a single word:
Because.
Andi turned it in. Despite the fact that I felt like a fucking genius for devising
this brilliant answer, I got an F. My friend, however, was a different story. He
responded with two words:
Why not?
He got a CH-.

Ah yes I also forgot that in my philosophy class in college I was asked "What is love?"

To which I obviously responded "Baby don't hurt me. Don't hurt me, no more."

Full credit.

To all the college students fo funnyjunk: If you can make the professor laugh, you will pass or get an A+.

I remember writing an in-class essay that asked why is there war and conflict. I had completely forgotten to study, so rather than write on topic, I instead wrote about a fictional war between the Mongolians and the Szechwans for the world's supply of Asian beef.

I got the highest score out of anyone in the class, and the essay is framed on my wall at home.

Go forth, young minds, and use your knowledge of humor gained here to recieve passing grades in the world of college.

I would, but unfortunately I do not own a camera.

But seriously, why would I make that up?

Question:
"Why is it important to know if you should mix an acid into a base, or a base into an acid?"

Answer:
"Because I need this 5 points to pass this test."

I'll post it for you guys sometime. I got the 5 points.

I never learned this in chemistry, isn't that where if you place a very concentrated acid/base into the beaker, then put a less dilute solution afterward you'll have stuff flying all over the place because the concentrated stuff is that reactive?

Well, what is "why" besides the adverb that marks the beginning of a question? There is no information pertaining to this particular use of the word "why" so there is no way to know how to answer this particular question. Technically, If you begin your response to this particular question with the word "because" followed by an explanation as to "why" your answer can never be wrong. However, the fact that this particular gentleman has recieved an F is beyond me and the fact that his friend has recieved a C+ for asking a contradictory question I find rather peculiar. I believe the teacher asked for a definition of the word "why" to which I would've responded: Why-an adverb used to ask or talk about the reason, purpose, or cause of something
