The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


A Little Test …
October 27, 2014, 6:10 am
Filed under: Comment

So I recently read about school exam questions.

I was crap at exams so I found them both interesting and intimidating.

That said, one question in particular stood out, so I thought I would see – if any of you can be arsed – what your response would be to it so that I can compare it to what I would have said and what students have said.

There’s no right or wrong answer, it’s a stupid little test so that I can compare how you would respond with kids of 15. And me.

So if you are so way inclined, could you please answer this question in the comments below:

In a short and succinct manner, please provide an example of a risk.

That’s it, I’ll put up what I said and what student said tomorrow.

Ta.

Risk is reading “The musings of an opinionated sod” even though you realize it is going to completely fuck up your brain. On the other hand, to be completely risk averse… Smart people read “AdScam.”

I beat the chicks off where you just beat yourself off.

adscam is where i go to hear intelligence. this crap is where i go when jerry springer reruns are not rerunning.

Comment by andy@cynic

There is no comparison with your brilliance George and my rubbish. But then there’s no comparison with the clever people who comment on your blog and the abuse I cop on here, ha!

Comment by Rob

@Rob… Never forget, flies are attracted to shit… Not that I would suggest for one minute that your wonderful blog is shit… However, the comments are something else.

Comment by adscamgeorge

You’re saying the comments are shit? Perfect.

Comment by Rob

Teacher practice? If it is, don’t say “if you are so way inclined”, you’re going to get destroyed.

Comment by DH

Good point. I can see the paper balls being thrown at me … though now it’s all computers and iPads now isn’t it. I might need to go in wearing a helmet.

Comment by Rob

Declaring your love without knowing whether or not it will be reciprocated. Also, answering this request!

Billy can tell us if this is true. Billy? Billy?

Comment by DH

youre too fucking deep to be on this shithole englishprofessoratlarge. do yourself a favour and run like fuck from this bollocks while your reputation is still marginally intact.

Comment by andy@cynic

fuck you. thats my answer and my statement.

Comment by andy@cynic

Deviously smart.

Comment by George

of course it fucking is.

Comment by andy@cynic

Interesting.

Comment by Rob

What would you be teaching? You ever failed at the school of life.

Comment by Billy Whizz

I know but they’ll take anyone these days.

Comment by Rob

Judging by the amount of teachers who are shagging their students, you’re right. They all seem to be women as well. Teaching has gone from nobel profession to the oldest profession.

Comment by DH

It’s autocorrect for rusk.

Comment by John

In about another 18 months, Rob will be very rusk averse … that shit sticks like glue.

Comment by Ian Gee

The obvious A* response would be. “This answer is a risk.”

Comment by John

the a* answer would be to fucking ignore the question.

and why the fuck do we have a*, whats wrong with plain old fucking a?

Comment by andy@cynic

It was good enough for me.

Comment by John

I never had one. That’s why I ended up working for Rob.

Comment by DH

I didn’t either and that’s why I ended up working for Andy.

Comment by Rob

An even more tedious answer would be the questioning of received wisdom.

Comment by John

Interesting that no one has yet answered your question.

Risk: growing up, whatever that is.

Comment by Ciaran McCabe

I gave two legitimate answers.

Comment by John

The unknown

Comment by Northern

Asking me to do a Media Arts workshop

Comment by Northern

they said write a story on risk not twatdom.

Comment by andy@cynic

A risk is whatever you do that ignores the voice in the back of your head screaming and begging you not to do it.

Comment by Marius Donnestad

Wow, I read this blog all the time and the one time I read the comments…. just wow. In response to the article my answer would be “Asking someone what they think of you” something I imagine some of the commenters on here never do. Please don’t blame your vulgarity and lack of respect on youth, I’m 22. It’s almost as bad as the comments on the online DM.

Comment by PomFace

you read this blog all the fucking time but have only just read the comments? the comments are the only reason to read this blog. the reason i wouldnt ask someone what they think of me is because i dont give a fuck about what they think of me unlike some precious little millennial.

Comment by andy@cynic

Congratulations, you have just embarrassed your whole age bracket. Are you proud?…I bet your proud. I’m thinking this is the first time you’ve accomplished something. Congratulations.🙂

Comment by PomFace

Hi Pomface … I think I should warn you that you’re most likely to be on a high road to nothing with Andy. Or probably anyone on here. My advice is save your breath and don’t read the comments.

Comment by Rob

Hey Rob.

I guess. I just think it’s a bit sad to be honest but hey ho.

Comment by PomFace

It is Pomace, but the regular commentators are all friends of mine – some were even ex-business partners of mine – so the insults are more [I hope] friendly banter than anything else.

Maybe they are like me and forget that anyone else actually reads this blog. Sorry if it caused offence, for what its worth, they’re all equal opportunity insulters.

Comment by Rob

Haha, fair enough. Don’t worry about it insulting me, I work in sales, so I’m used to banter and the like, so I give as good as I get. As mentioned, it just seems a bit of a shame that they bring such a serious twist to an otherwise lighthearted blog.

Comment by PomFace

Serious? There’s a lot of things I’d say they do … being serious is not one of them. Ha.

Comment by Rob

Perhaps the wrong wording there. Haha, I know what I meant.
