Seconds in a Year
A star quarterback had to get his grades up in order to play in the big game at the end of the season. His coach knew that this was impossible without some incredible rule-bending.
He arranged for the professors who were unhappy with the player's work to create a special test for him. The professors finally decided on a good, short quiz.
The only question: "How many seconds are there in a year?"
They brought the quarterback into an empty room that was filled with books, magazines, calenders, and electronic computing equipment (calculators, computers, etc.). They told him that he would have five hours to complete the one-question quiz. He agreed and they left the room. The professors checked in on him every hour and noticed the quarterback working hard, using all the equipment.
At the end of the five hours, the professors ask him for his answer.
He said, "Just a minute! I've almost got it!" After ten minutes of this, the professors got mad and finally yell at him, "We need an answer! How many seconds are there in a year?" they asked.
And finally the quarterback replied, "11."
"11?" exclaimed the angry professors.
"Yeah, the second of January, the second of February, The second of May..."
