This story is GREAT!I have to do something like that one day!
Some time ago I received a call from a colleague. He was about to give a student a zero for his answer to a physics question, while the student claimed a perfect score. The instructor and the student agreed to an impartial arbiter, and I was selected.I read the examination question: "SHOW HOW IT IS POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE THE HEIGHT OF A TALL BUILDING WITH THE AID OF A BAROMETER." The student had answered, "Take the barometer to the top of the building, attach a long rope to it,lower it to the street, and then bring it up, measuring the length of the rope. The length of the rope is the height of the building." The student really had a strong case for full credit since he had really answered the question completely and correctly! On the other hand, if full credit were given, it could well contribute to a high grade in his physics course and to certify competence in physics, but the answer did not confirm this. I suggested that the student have ano

It doesn`t say what traits would you look for. It doesn`t say how would you know. He did not answer the question right, regardless if he could figure out if it was female that way.
Part of the reason we make students do complicated problems like this is a) would you want your doctor unable to figure out complicated problems? and b) If you can`t critically read and answer the question CORRECTLY, than you are no good to society for 99% of jobs.
Here`s MY link which was apparently not up to IAB`s standard, even though it has more stuff.
The one about the elephant kills me!

the decision makers at IAB have fookin mysterious criteria for links.
And BTW, IAB, I am SICK of bad games and cheesy youtube posts. Is this just a youtube aggregator?
It`s called progress (not evolution). Somebody`s got to progress to the next level; us that are incapable of that depend on those that are.
Anyway that makes me laugh. I`m gonna use it if I ever see that question haha
