The Chair....

An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam
after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics. The class
was already seated and ready to go when the professor picked up
his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board:
"Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this
chair does not exist.
"Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious
fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting
to refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class
however, was up and finished in less than a minute. Weeks later
when the grades were posted, the rest of the group wondered how
he could have gotten an A when he had barely written anything at
His answer consisted of two words: "Which Chair?"

Some times such funny answers pay dividends--

One of my younger friend was asked in a job interview - if a feather and
a coin are to be dropped from this floor under what condition they will fall
on the ground at the same time.

The candidate got puzzled as he knew that going by science it is possible only if they are made to fall in vacuum... but it was not feasible there.

he got desparate and answered with confidence as he had aleready lost the battle- Sir tie them together and drop them down -- they will fall together.

My friend returned home with a sorry face knopwing for sure his wild answers must have been am ockery and he would have been rejected by the panel.

But by the way he narrated the situation I was sure he will get selected - and after persistant  wait the fruitful ultimately resulted.

he is selected working in the organisation for last 20 years with satisfactory growth also.

So dont lose confidence wild answers to equally wild questions may also win you a job.

It is not a story a happening.
