Think For Yourself — Why Teachers Always Ask Really Tough Questions

My father told me a story once about his college Chemistry exam.

The professor walked in, handed every student three blank sheets of paper, and went behind his desk at the front.

He pulled out a match, lit it on the matchbox and simply said: “Explain what just happened. You have 3 hours.”
