The one class which I do not totally enjoy is Music Appreciation. This is because it is full of morons.
We use i>Clicker remotes to answer multiple choice questions that the professor places before us with a projector. These questions always concern themselves with the class material which we have JUST gone over, no more than ten minutes ago. No one should be able to get them wrong.
But oh, how they do. There is always at least one person who gets it wrong, oftentimes two or more.
I simply do not understand. Our class consists of one hundred and twenty-six college students, presumably all high school graduates, who should be able to write things down and remember them five minutes later.
So why can't they? What is so hard about this?
Nothing. It is exceedingly simple. There is no reason concerning the class material that says these people should not be able to answer simple questions correctly.
Ergo, the only problem which I can see lies with the student. This brings me to a question:
Why don't people care if they are stupid?
I doubt I'll ever have an answer. But I would love to hear my readers' take on this issue. (Yes, all five of you.)
