And while I'm talking about what a genius I am, I got back an essay exam for my German history class, and I feel it is only fair that I share the results so you guys can make fun of me.

The topic was on the factors that led to the fall of the Weimar Republic and subsequent rise of the Nazi party; first a list, then analysis of a few of the factors listed.

I did really well with the list for the most part! I got the hyperinflation and the Versailles Treaty and the 1929 stock market crash and the political extremism and all kinds of stuff. My professor only had one note to offer, about the one teeny-tiny little factor that I forgot to include. The note reads as follows:

"also - Hitler."


I don't even know how I left him off the list. Talk about missing the forest for the trees.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go finish reading a book. About Hitler. So I can write a paper tomorrow. About Hitler.

.... I shouldn't be laughing this hard. I am sorry.

"also hitler." *snickering*

It's okay, I posted it to make people laugh. I certainly did when I saw the note. He actually mailed back the essays to some of us since he'd fallen behind in grading them, and I am glad he did, because it saved me from cracking the fuck up in the middle of the classroom.

HA. Okay, your prof totally gets points for style there.
