What is the chief cause of divorce? Feb 11, Eyehavenofilter rated it really liked it. I must say that this is SO worth reading if you really need a good laugh, want to know that this country may be on the slippery slope down hill or just want to feel incredibly brilliant.
There is absolutely no excuse for the lack of intelligence displayed in the answers given, I can only hope that not all of them are real, and are just faked for the book. Alas that may not be the truth I'm going to have a nap, my head hurts, and I want to cry. It's the same feeling I have when I watch interv I must say that this is SO worth reading if you really need a good laugh, want to know that this country may be on the slippery slope down hill or just want to feel incredibly brilliant.
It's the same feeling I have when I watch interviews on the street, and they ask people simple questions, like what are the colors in our flag and people don't know, or they say " What flag Dec 26, Peter Fabre rated it it was ok Shelves: A funny little book with some very enjoyable quotes.
My only disappointment, as with many books of this kind, is its length. I sometimes wondered whether everything said were true because some statements required an exceptional amount of insight or perhaps i read more than was really there.
My answer to this was to suspend disbelief and treat it as you would a work of fiction involving children writing tests. Regardless of whether children wrote these themselves, the conjured image is infinitel A funny little book with some very enjoyable quotes.
Regardless of whether children wrote these themselves, the conjured image is infinitely funnier than the possible disillusionment. Jan 23, Martyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: I feel slightly guilty giving this book five stars but there were tears of laughter at several points so five it is! The guilt comes from thinking that it's somehow wrong to be laughing at stupidity but actually I don't think that that's what is hapening in this case; the younger kids just made funny IMO the funniest mistakes and the older ones were, in the main, trying to be funny and they were.
So, although I got the impression that a small number of these kids might be appearing at a drive I feel slightly guilty giving this book five stars but there were tears of laughter at several points so five it is! So, although I got the impression that a small number of these kids might be appearing at a drive thru window sometime in their future, on the whole these were smart kids making understandable mistakes or being deliberately funny.
Some faves from a large group of gems: Give the meaning of the term caesarean section. Explain how energy is lost during an energy conversion. Describe the bonding of SO2.

Dec 02, James rated it it was amazing Shelves: Sometimes ignorance and creative genius seem to be in perfect balance on the same test questions - bless this author for compiling these books I binge-read this along with his "F This Test" and "F in Exams - Pop Quiz". Just read them - you don't have to know anything about the correct answers to the questions to enjoy these that are so wonderfully wrong. Sep 04, Rachel Beeler rated it it was ok.
Read during the 11 hr car ride. Dec 16, Phyllis rated it really liked it. If you want something to make you laugh out loud. It's a collection of "answers" to test questions from elementary to high school students.
Oct 26, Margaret rated it it was amazing. Completely banal. Totally hilarious. My family was rolling on the floor with laughter.
Sep 27, Aaron rated it liked it. So, this book came with the Humble Trivia Champion Bundle. I struggled with the 'why' for a while, it could be that science and math have become trivia to people nowadays, but my answer came not from the book itself, it came from my relationship with trivia.
Gonna let you in on a secret: Trivia is not actually trivia, it's an extension of the horror genre. It's one of the most effective branches of horror too. Rather than being based on a true story, usually it's implicit that trivia is a true So, this book came with the Humble Trivia Champion Bundle.
Rather than being based on a true story, usually it's implicit that trivia is a true story. Whether it's FDA mandates about how many bug parts are allowed in cereal or the number of people killed by a champaign cork every year, the story to tell is supposed to be non-fiction, and this is my problem, because trivia seems to assuming it's all relatively accurate unabashedly observe the most disturbing parts of our world and happily inform us about it.
In this book I cannot tell if that is the case, and that's what terrifies me the most.
I've been through elementary, high school and a few colleges in the American education system. I've sat in on classes where people twice my age were convinced the area of a one inch by one inch square was two inches. I've listened to people who've presumably done little other than being educated at for something like twelve years try to read something like they're still learning how letters work.
Don't even get started on biology or chemistry, it's insane. These are the future scientists and buisness persons and educators for the next generation. This is grim.
So I literally cannot tell if this is a book of actual responses to test questions or something someone fabricated entirely to be clever. The most I can do is really, really hope it's the latter. Dec 23, Anya rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book genuinely made me laugh out loud.
It is a collection of funny answers that students have given on tests, and I'd like to start by sharing a few of my favourites. If you are directly in front of the train, what is the whistle frequency you hear? You will get hit by the train before you can even figure out what that whistling sound is. John keeps pigs and chickens on his farm. Among them, th This book genuinely made me laugh out loud. Among them, they have a total of 43 heads and legs. How many pigs and chickens are on the farm?
Two total: Okay, I know the second one is kind of stupid, but both made me laugh so hard. The only thing I would add to this book is an introduction on how these answers were obtained since I wasn't entirely sure that all of them were "real" I've seen some of these answers online before, but that could be a coincidence. Jun 01, Melody rated it it was amazing.
Omg, I came across this book yesterday and I was having a bad day. I flipped through it and starting laughing. Like, hard laughing.
This book made me laugh so hard there were tears coming out of my eyes! Even when I was driving home, I thought of one of the funnies in this book and started laughing again. Then I had to force myself to stop thinking about it so I could concentrate on driving.
This book is an easy read and I read it in one day.
Pick it up when you're having a bad day. You'll be in Omg, I came across this book yesterday and I was having a bad day. You'll be in a much better mood after! May 25, Sasha rated it it was amazing. The real student answers made me laugh out loud.
I am giving this as a gift to one of my colleagues because we need to remember why our jobs can be pretty hilarious. Sep 18, Megan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I first read this before I signed up for Goodreads. Now that Alonzo Lerone has used a couple parts of this and F in Exams: Aug 16, Chani rated it liked it Shelves: There is a section for elementary school children and their answers are so cute and pure.
I am sure most of the children did not even realize that there was anything wrong with their answers. The high school section is not as great. A few of them were innocent mistakes, the rest were people who did not study attempting to be funny. Jul 31, Christian Shafer rated it did not like it. This book did manage to make me chuckle a couple of times.
Still, I could never resort to being a fan of books that are more or less the results of a Google query that can't stay updated in real time.
