If you have ever experienced the unpleasant feeling of sitting a test at school you haven’t studied a single minute for, then this particular story might appeal to you. An unnamed student recently faced this very situation. Instead of failing miserably and submitting a blank paper in his science exam, the student decided to ask for the teacher’s advice on a personal matter.
The student had a love problem that needed solving. He had no clue what the answer to the question “What chemical becomes useful to an archaeologist who wants to determine the exact age of a bone?” was, so he wrote about his heartaches on the question sheet instead. The student asked the teacher for advice on how to approach a girl that he liked. When the teacher returned the test paper, he accompanied the mark with an excellent response. He advised his student next time he meets the girl to talk about how atmospheric nitrogen can be used to age artifacts. The teacher added that this particular pick-up line worked for him every time.
