Shoot me now.

Got an email from a student, last night.  They'd emailed me asking if they were on the right track for the next paper, and I'd emailed them back telling her it looked good, but that they might want to put the Greek terms in italics.  This morning, I opened up my email to find that student had emailed me again.

"What is italics?"

Oh, God help me.

  1. You would think a halfway intelligent person would Google search a question like that to avoid looking like a complete idiot.....at least to someone they were trying to impress with their knowledge.
