Our students interact on an online forum when not in class. While their posts are often be interesting, the following exchange between two students made me laugh out loud...
(Of course, identities have been changed to protect the innocent...)
Student A - "So a few of weeks ago, i was discussing with Student X and Student Y the possibility of genetically engineering humans to where we're really short. I'm not really sure if this is very realistic but if it were/is possible don't you think it would be extremely beneficial? And not just to us but to the environment as well? Because i mean being shorter would require less space, less stuff to eat, less water (in a way) and pretty much less everything!"
Student B - "But then our pets could eat us."
