A word problem for the real world:

Johnny’s science class has devoted the last 4 weeks to practice drills for the state-mandated reading test.  If he takes 2 end-of-instruction tests over the next 3 days how many Disney videos will he see over the last 2 weeks of school?

Somebody call the President.  My school administration has discovered the solution to the energy crisis.

We got an email today:

Due to high energy costs all personnel must turn off all screen savers.  Set your screen saver to “none”.  Thank you for your continued help in our efforts to save money.

Now my first reaction was, this has got to be a joke.

No.  The IT guy was serious.

With 1500 computers district-wide that’s gotta save us what, $0.02 per month?
