Messing with Their Heads
I was editing a passage about planets with my classes the other day when we ran across part of a sentence that said, "Mercury takes only 88 days to circle the sun." I observed that, since Mercury's year is so short, it's a good thing we don't live there, otherwise we'd reach 90 years old very quickly and die of old age.
I thought it was funny. They didn't.Posted by tat at February 11, 2005 11:53 PM
