Darwinism in Education

Some students at the
University of Maryland are
required to take a difficult
class in physics.

One day, the professor was discussing
a particularly complicated
concept. A student rudely
interrupted to ask, "Why do we
have to learn this stuff?"

"To save lives," the
professor responded quickly
and continued the lecture.

A few minutes later, the same
student spoke up again. "So
how does physics save lives?"
he persisted.

"It prevents idiots like you
from graduating as civil
engineers and building
things," replied the professor.
