Better Off Learning In A Fortress Of Solitude

| CO, USA | Learning | May 2, 2014

(I am in geography class. The teacher has tasked us with finding random information, like capital cities, in an atlas and writing questions for our classmates. Annoyed with the simplicity of the task, I put down a sarcastic question.)

Teacher: *reading question* “What is the largest city in Antarctica?”

Student #1: “The atlas says Antarctica is uninhabited.”

Student #2: “No. The map’s got places marked on it, so it must have cities in it.”

(The students argue back and forth for several minutes, while I try not to laugh and the teacher scrutinizes the atlas.)

Teacher: “Here, I think I found it!” *indicates a mountain on the Antarctica map*
