Student Bloomer of the Week

(From an essay about logical fallacies in the "Nation and Race" chapter out of Hitler's Mein Kampf -- you have NO IDEA how beautifully that whole chapter illustrates one logical fallacy after another!)

"Adolf Hitler was a Nazi leader in the Civil War."

Sigh. Sounds of teacher taking more medication.


  1. oh my, oh my, oh my!!! i know it has been some time since i was in the classroom as a teacher, but is it really possible to be a freshman in college and have this lack of knowledge? really? i shall now turn to my lovely office floor-to-ceiling window which looks out over a stream winding past a grassy knoll and thank the Lord above that i no longer teach!!!!! LE

  2. Hee hee hee. College students (make that many students) are astounding with their breadth of knowledge, aren't they?!? Who knew that Hitler was a mighty Civil War man before he was even born????
