Society: Graduation In Chicago

[via JimT]

How bad are the schools in Chicago?

Subject: Graduation In ChicagoDarqueeze played high school football in Chicago. He was a great running back, but a really poor student.

At graduation, he didn’t have enough credits.

But he was a great football star and the students held a rally and demanded the principal give him a diploma anyway. They were so insistent that the principal agreed that if Darqueeze could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma.

The one question test was held in the auditorium and all the students packed the place.

It was standing room only. The principal was on the stage and told him to come up. Diploma in hand, the principal said: “Darqueeze, if you can answer this one question correctly Ill give you your diploma.”

“Darqueeze, how much is three times seven?”

Darqueeze looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes, pondering the question.

The other students began chanting, “Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!”

Then Darqueeze held up his hand and the auditorium became silent.

He said, “I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one.”

A hush fell over the auditorium and then all the other students began to chant:

“Give him another chance! Give him another chance!”

Tech: BBC – Future – The fire that may have saved the Apollo programme

You can learn something every day if you’re not careful. And after Apollo 1, we got careful.

[…

Because there is almost no convection in microgravity, fire in space spreads slower than on the ground and is therefore easier to contain.
