This must be a day for stories about stupid

For her "norm" Arnold picked social media use, and for her country she chose Australia.

But when Arnold got her grade back on Feb. 1, she was shocked to see her professor had failed her. Why? Because, according to the teacher, "Australia is a continent; not a country."
Someone tell Tim Blair.

I will gladly re-examine your week 2 milestone project report.

But before I do I want you to understand that any error in a project can invalidate the entire research project.

Research is like dominoes, if you accidentally knock over one piece the entire set will also fall.

Australia is a continent; it is not a country. That error made it nearly impossible for you to accurately complete your week 2 research outline correctly.

As I mentioned above I will look over your week two paper once again and see if you earned more credits than I gave you.
Apparently a PhD in philosophy doesn't require any knowledge of geography.

" ...according to the teacher, "Australia is a continent; not a country." "

"Oh really? Pray tell then, just what other counties I may find on Australia-the-Continent, ASIDE FROM Australia-the-Country?"

There's a comment at the end of the storry that "the teacher was replaced". Ambiguity had some uses, I suppose.

Your site seems to be having issues. For the last 4 days I get an error when I try and visit. If I refresh it then loads correctly 90% of the time. Sometimes it takes 2 reloads.

It happens if i visit from my cell or my laptop and it doesn't matter which browser.

No clue why. Just figured you should know.
