Perhaps you have spoken to this Microsoft customer support engineer? Mujibar was trying to get a job in India. The Personnel
Manager said, 'Mujibar, you have passed all the MCSE exams, except one. Unless you pass this test you cannot qualify for this job.' Mujibar said, 'I am ready' The manager said, 'Make a sentence using the
words Yellow, Pink and Green.' Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, 'Mister manager, I am ready' The manager said, 'Go ahead.' Mujibar said, 'The telephone goes green, green, and I pink
it up, and say, 'Yellow, this is Mujibar.' Mujibar now works as a technician at a call center for computer problems. Footnote: Story kindly sent in by Scot G.
Cakes and Ale for Examinee
- Thanks to the Latin Dictum: 'Ius non trahi extra'
Here is an allegedly true story regarding
examinations at Cambridge University. Do remember that Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world, and its rules date back to the thirteenth century. In May 2007 during a Peterhouse
exam, a student called Newton looked up and asked the proctor to bring him Cakes and Ale. The following dialogue ensued: Proctor: I beg your pardon?
Student: I request that that you bring me cakes and ale Proctor: Sorry, no.
Student: Sir, I really must insist. I request and require that you bring me cakes and ale
in accordance with 'Ius non trahi extra'. At this point the student produced a copy of the six hundred year old Laws of Cambridge, written in Latin and still nominally in effect, and pointed to the
section which read (rough translation from the Latin): 'Students sitting examinations may request cakes and ale.' Newton argued that Pepsi cola and a cheeseburger were the nearest equivalent of the
ancient right, and so he sat there, writing his examination and chomping away happily on his burger. Footnote: The next day, Newton was summoned to appear before the University Court of
Discipline for not wearing a sword to the examination. After duly considering the offence, Newton was fined ten shillings [$1 USD]. Addendum Newton graduated on Thursday 28th of June
2007 with a third class degree in Aerodynamics & Acoustics.
