  1. This whole time, all I can think of is the fact that “G.S.T.” refers to the Goods and Services Tax in Canada.

  2. On second thought I decided to expand on that. The GST was was a collection of hundreds of very stupid and easy questions – the ONLY thing they tested was your ability to take tests. And the poor schools that had difficulty getting their kids to task the test- They were rewarded by getting their funding cut.

  3. Thank goodness in 1995 my teacher was only preparing us forthe AP exam and sprinkled his tips throughout a year of putting the weekly test in that format. The one I remember is that you’re more likely to miss a question after one you missed- one you didn’t know, one because your concentration was shaken by not knowing the first. And to go back through the questions from the end if you’re going to check them before turning it in, because of any hints from later questions and the one you know when you’re thinking clearly.

  4. What six letter curse word starts and ends with the same letter, and otherwise doesn’t repeat any?

    That was rhetorical, I would be happier beleiving that no such word exists.

  5. “I’ve just decided to switch our Friday schedule to Monday, which means that the test we take each Friday on what we learned during the week will now take place on Monday before we’ve learned it. But since today is Tuesday, it doesn’t matter in the slightest.”
