Note: Much excitement, watch your speakers.
Because college is way more about luck than actually learning things, this is a video of Ohio State student Vinny Forte making a far-as-hell paper ball trashcan shot to secure his entire organic chemistry class 100's on their first quiz. LOLOL, book learning is for nerds.
...the professor had thrown a paper ball up in the balcony to demonstrate "donating a proton" while reviewing acid base chemistry.
The professor then offered - as he does every year - to give the entire class a 100 on the first quiz if the person who he threw the ball to could toss it into the trash can, she said.
Apparently the student chosen last year made the shot as well but nobody caught it on video. Wait -- so these students are shooting two for two in the past two years? It sounds to me like this professor can bend bend the laws of physics and hates grading quizzes. Man, I still remember where I was for my first organic chemistry quiz. "Not in the classroom?" Nope -- in a buddy's dorm room getting high and playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3. My GPA was a 1.45 that semester. And that, my friends, is how I became a marketing major.
Keep going for a video of the whole shot and aftermath.
Thanks to everybody who sent this, who all agree paper ball trick shots will get you way further in the workplace than any actual knowledge.
