Chemistry Final - Urban Legend?

First year Chemistry at Duke University is taught by the infamous Professor Bonk. Seriously, I kid you not, his name is Bonk. Anyway, this guy is tough and lots of people have problems in his class.

So these two guys both took the course and did really well. Going into the final exam, they both had solid As. The two of 'em decide to go partying up in West Virginia the weekend before the exam - which is on Monday. They figure if they make it home early Sunday they can cram all night and do just fine. But they oversleep Sunday and don't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning. They panic because they need to study at least a little bit and now there's no time at all!

The guys decide to call Bonk after the final and make up this excuse as to why they couldn't make it. They told him that they had gone to West Virginia to study but that they got a flat tire on the way home and didn't have a spare. No one stopped to help them for a long time so they were late getting back to campus. Bonk thought over their excuse and told them that they could re-do the exam the following day.

They studied all night and went in the next morning knowing that they would ace it. Bonk placed them in separate rooms and they began the final. The first page was one question worth five points about something on Molarity and solutions. "Cool," they thought. "We really are going to ace this." They did that problem and turned the page. The next page also only had one question. Worth 95 points, they had to answer the question "Which tire was flat?"

What do you think? Is this story made up and now it's passed around to scare students? Or did it really happen? Take our poll and see what others think or .

1 I think this story is true, because I know all those people in college party all night.

1 Hey I think this is true because Concord College is a HUGE party place. I know cuz I live in W.V. It was rated in the top 10 biggest party colleges, so they could have known someone there.

Last week I wrote about spontaneous human combustion which is when a person burns from the inside. There have been lots of stories reported about this happening but whether you believe them or not is up to you.

Here are last week's poll results:

Believe It or Not?
There is no such thing as SHC. 30%
This story is true. 40%
I don't know. 30%

    Twisted visions. Dirty lies. No one knows the truth. That lies deep inside. The pain you hide. All day and night. It burns you. Hurts you.  Slowly, Killing you. You hide it best you can. Smile and say it's okay. But really. It's another lie. Another smudge. Inside your mind. You smile though. Keeping hope. But every day. Second by second. It goes away. And at night. There is only despair. Tearing out your hair. You scream at yourself. Why?! Why are you this way?! But when morning comes. You will wash away. All the tears. And all the pain. The lies are dirty. But the truth is dirtier.

I mean your point is fraught with worse problems, but I'm hoping this can be the most relatable.
