We're all gonna die...

That's according to one of my students. Zack came in to class, proclaiming that we all only had a couple more hours to live. Of course, several other students totally bought in to his BS, asking, "Why? What's going on?" Zack replies, "Didn't ya'll hear about that huge meteor heading straight toward Earth?" Someone says, "Where did you hear about that?" Completely deadpan, Zack says, "The aliens told me." Groans and laughter. Then a student says, "Well, if they're going to talk to anyone, it will be you!"

We're all gonna die....maybe not from a meteor, and maybe not today, but these kids will be in charge in the near future. Scary.
