The Final

A philosophy professor walks in to give his class their final. Placing his chair on his desk the professor instructs the class, "Using every applicable thing you've learned in this course, prove to me that this chair DOES NOT EXIST."

So, pencils are writing and erasers are erasing, students are preparing to embark on novels proving that this chair doesn't exist, except for one student. He spends thirty seconds writing his answer, then turns his final in to the astonishment of his peers.

Time goes by, and the day comes when all the students get their final grades...and to the amazement of the class, the student who wrote for thirty seconds gets the highest grade in the class.

His answer to the question: "What chair?"

  10. He saw that coming. He was a philosophy major.He did, however, have a math professor who simply said, "write down everything you know" and left the room. It would have taken Him just as short a time as this philosophy test.

    2. His longer answer would have been, "Since I Kant think about it, it isn't". -René Descartes.

  16. Good answer. I had a thermodynamics professor who drove us crazy with problems like that. He once asked the class, "What is the color of water?" We thought it was a trick question and we were stumping our collective brains to figure it out. I asked my daughter who was four at the time and it took her one second to say blue.
