Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious. 

The following, courtesy of various websites, are purported to be actual test answers given by students at various institutions of higher learning around the country. Although there’s no knowing for sure how genuine they really are, I’d say that if even a quarter of them are real, Nostradamus gave us way longer than we deserve to expect. For purposes of orderliness, as if we needed any, I’ve separated them into categories, sort of.

• Before giving a blood transfusion, find out if the blood is affirmative or negative.

• For a nosebleed, put the nose much lower then the body until the heart stops.

• For fainting, rub the person’s chest or, if a lady, rub her arm above the hand instead. Or put the head between the knees of the nearest medical doctor.


• The hookworm larvae enters the human body through the soul.
