Out of the mouths of students

One delightful line from a student’s paper (concerning the Aztecs and their use of human sacrifice as a means of intimidating their enemies):

“Nothing says ‘Obey me’ like a severed head on a stick.”

In other news, I got two messages from a student.  The first was titled: “Abstances.”  The second: “Oops – meant to say Abesnts.”
