Two weeks ago, I gave my lab students their first test or “celebration of learning” as the lab manual calls them. I got a very funny response to the fourth question, which told me that the student was paying attention in class:
Q: Explain with detail why the following question is a bad scientific question. How do leprechauns manipulate rainbows?
A: Leprechauns have not been proven to exist and are therefore supernatural beings which defy the definition of science (except in Kansas!). Therefore, this question is neither testable nor researchable.
Yes, Kansas, you are being made fun of by students in Georgia.
