    • Student raising hand slowly, red faced, in the back of the classroom..... "Teacher, may I be excused? I think I need to go to the bathroom..."

      Teacher responds..."No, you can't go right now.."

      Student... "WANNA BET!!!"

      I always hated having to ask to go to the bathroom. Then there was the whole Hall pass thing. We had a big piece of plywood cut into a square. Where exactly are you supposed to put the pass while doing your business. I didn't want to touch that thing...

        • High school.... those were the days...

          There was an incident at my high school that was terribly funny, and still brings a chuckle to me. I was not witness to the event, thank God, but the entire school learned about it.
          It seems that during a class in a certain teacher's room, two guys got into a contest of who could "pass gas" the loudest. Let's just say, if you put enough pressure on your intestine, something is bound to come out. Seeing as to what comes out of that part of the anatomy, it wasn't very funny to the janitor or the poor fellow who soiled his pants. I never did hear who was declared the winner... I say, the soiled pants guy won by default. Anybody care to swap seats with him??

          Yep, those were the days...

            • A cable TV company has two channels of programming that it can offer (at negligible marginal cost) to a large pool of potential customers. Suppose the value (per unit time) of each channel to each potential customer is an independent random variable uniformly distributed on the interval (0,1) and that value is additive (so the value of both channels to the potential customer is the sum of the values of each individual channel). Assume a potential customer will
              buy when the (additional) value is greater than the (additional) price.

              1. Suppose the company prices each channel independently. What should it charge for each channel (to maximize revenue) and what will its expected revenue be (per potential customer per unit time)?

              2. Suppose the company bundles the channels together so the potential customer has to buy both or neither. What should it charge (to maximize revenue) for the bundle and what will its expected revenue be (per potential customer per unit time)?

              Define the consumer surplus to be the difference (assuming it is positive) between what a potential buyer would have been willing to pay for an item and the actual price. If the difference is negative the sale will not take place and the consumer surplus is defined to be 0.

              3. What is the consumer surplus (per potential customer per unit time) assuming the cable company prices to maximize revenue for cases 1 and 2 above?

              • What if???

                1.) 1
                2.) 2
                3.) 0

                This would be a rough estimate because the variability of the costs versus the expenses and also projected profits due to the ever fluctuating consumer base and changing cost/value perception in the market.

                • I'm thinking of retracting my previous answer and changing it to (c.) but I might be wrong again. If there is anything I am good at, it is being wrong. Do we get extra credit for trying?? May I use a lifeline?? Regis, what do you think? Is Kelly going to have anymore kids? What's for Dinner??

                  • Composed by a hard working guy: (NO! Not me )

                    I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes
                    my taxes as it sees fit. In order to earn that pay cheque, as I work on
                    a rig site or a Fort Mac construction project, I am required to pass a
                    random urine test, with which I have no problem. What I do have a
                    problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don't have to
                    pass a urine test. Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a
                    welfare cheque because I have to pass one to earn it for them????

                    Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on
                    their feet. I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone
                    sit on their arse drinking beer & smoking dope. Could you imagine how
                    much money the provinces would save if people had to pass a urine test
                    to get a public assistance cheque??? Please pass this along if you agree
                    or simply delete if you don't.

                    Hope you all will pass it along though, because something has to
                    change in this country, and soon!
