Easy Questions

At Sydney University, there were four students taking Organic Chemistry. They did so well on all the quizzes, midterms and labs, etc., that each had an A so far for the semester.These four friends were so confident with the finals approaching that the weekend before, they decided to go down to Canberra and party with some friends there.

They had a great time. However, after all the hard partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn’t make it back to Sydney until early Monday morning- the morning of their final exam!

Rather than taking the final then, they decided to find their Professor after the exam and explain to him why they missed it. They explained that they had gone to Canberra to do some research in the ANU archives for the weekend with the plan to come back in time to study, but, unfortunately, they had a flat tire on the way back, didn’t have spare, and couldn’t get help for a long time. As a result, they only just arrived now!

The professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up their final exam the following day.

The guys were elated and relieved. They studied hard that night – all night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them.

He placed each of them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet, (which was out of 100 points) and told them to begin.

The first problem was worth 5 points. It was something simple about Free radical formation.

“Cool," they all thought in their rooms, “this is going to be easy."

Each finished the problem and then turned the page for the next question:-

Question 2 (for 95 points): Which tire was punctured?

    This one easy… of my level.

    The links you put I also visit often. I think you read HKEJ? I’m a big fan of HKEJ. This is the only thing in HK I miss.

    I’m learning Yeung’s Tai chi, not in a in-depth manner, i.e., just postures and movements. Do you have any good Tai Chi books in mind? Would like to check it out in HK.

    please also post more on Tai chi and/or martial arts.

  2. I got to know HKEJ only in 90’s and I learnt a lot from the columists, though not agreeing to some of the views sometimes. Apparently, after being taken over by Richard, they are going to setup a website. Anyway for daily articles by Lam and Cho, there are always kind-hearted guys helping to put over Internet.

    For Taiji, I mentioned one good reference in my last post, which may not be an easy reading for beginners. Well, I shall compile a list and let you get them in HK later on.

    More on Taiji will be coming soon. Hope you’d like it…
