Journal FortKnox's Journal: The Masked Grader 9

OK, you are in the physics building, see a whole stack of graded papers from some <101 level physics class... actually essays for physics... would you pick them up... add comments to the papers, then return them?

  • I will soon start attending college fifteen years after graduating high school, and it's nice to see some assurance that the young whippersnappers won't make me look *too* bad by comparison (unless run-on sentences count; they don't, do they?).
  • I am dying over here. I would be starving without the microwave? LOL!
