As the students release a sigh of realization, the professor turns towards his class with a grin on his face and asks, "How about another example?"

"How hard is the test?" an anxious Physics I student asked Professor Kristine Callan the week before the course's first exam. "Well, I took it last night and got a C+," Callan replied. The class went silent. Then anxious murmurs arose. "Guys, I'm just kidding. I haven't taken it yet," Callan said and nervous laughter filled the room.
