My Chemistry teacher is a wonderfully sweet lady with a VERY thick Russian accent.
She has a way of being very blunt sometimes and occasionally uses black humor to 'wake us up'. (It's chem- we doze a lot.)
Anyway, someone asked her if our upcoming test, which would be multiple choice, allowed any room for partial credit.
She paused a second and said "Partial credit- what partial credit? Say a plane crashes and everyone inside dies- and the guy who is responsible says, "What about partial credit?" You can't get it in real life and you won't get it here."
IT WAS GREAT.. and she wasn't being mean, just making a point.
