good question(s are never prohibitive)

Posted to Utterances




this minds me: 2nd best school-test i ever had:
Profoundly Cool Teacher (Larry Gavin) says (well actualyl im going to re-enact cause i was sick the real day of the test & so he re-enacted it for me:) says "Class, it is time to take a test. There are 10 questions, each question is a true/false question.... Now: When" & this was like '00 or so that explains why hes citing "Mark Mcguire steps up to plate, he KNOWS that his last at bat has Absolutely Nothing to do with this at-bat. If he struck-out/hit-a-home-run, it doesnt matter. Turn in your tests at my desk when youre done." The punchline is that all ten questions had the answer "true".

& since im in the vicinity...proximity? im gonna defect from the quasi-relevance i tended in the above ¶ to enumerate the handsdown #1 school-test ive ever taken:
Logic class, (since everyone was taking Logic to ditch a math requirement & realized the error of their logic concerning "ease" so teacher-sympathetico nixed the final test in favor of) a short quiz on the last day: one question: "What will be your score on this quiz?" My brain imploded; but from the netherworld i scribbled an equally convulted version of "jesus christ you destroyer: kudos. well... it cant be 0 cause if that was right, then i would of answered my question correctly & scored a 1, i.e. id be wrong. if its 1................................................................................. . . ................................................ & im right, then im right. but if im wrong..!?!?!?!?!?!?!????????????????!!!!!!!!???????!?????!?..then im wrong!!! you fucker; this is undecidable. you were intoxicated (on perverse logic) when you thought of this; im right. i get a 1." (essentialy 'well eitheror win/lose, might as well win.')

it was the last day & i never found out how i scored.
