...because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

While that's nothing to sneeze at, many experts say that the Troubled Asset Relief Program helped rescue the economy from a second Great Depression. But there are others who argue that the billions of dollars that taxpayers shelled out simply delayed an inevitable epic collapse of the financial sector."

How about we require them to actually pass the classes they do attend before letting them move on...

Today's grading seems to be based on if they "try" rather then actually do the assignment correctly. That type of grading is objectionable based on the teacher. Since everyone has a different opinion of "trying", your mileage may very.

In this case, a higher score leads to a prize they are offering. I opened a ticket with the contact page on the website, but they closed the ticket."
