An Incontinent Teacher

| Learning | April 10, 2014

(Our Asian literature professor is listing the area we’ll be covering.)

Professor:  “… and of course there’s Australia.”

Me: “You mean because of the cultural connections?”

Professor: “No. Australia is part of Asia.”

Student: “No, it isn’t.”

Me: “I just took a general geography class, professor. Australia is very definitely its own continent.”

Professor: “No. See, Indonesia is part of Asia, so Australia is, too.”
