    'Guess how old ....'s boyfriend is. He's really old'. This is at a second year Maths lecture (most people are 19 going on 20, and it was close to the start of the year).

    Someone else says... 'like... 20?'

    I can beat that with

    "Of course Wales is an island, that's why you have to cross a bridge to get to it!"

    Guy 1: This might sound like a dumb question... but do squirrels climb trees by running so fast at them that they just go up?
    Guy 2: What? No! They have claws!
    Guy 1: That's ridiculous. Squirrels can't have claws.

    From a probability lecturer whose brain moves too fast for his tongue, on the discussion of quantification of surprise:
    "If I roll a dice and I get a heads, is this a surprising event?"

    From the same lecturer:
    "This is a table of the frequencies of words used in Charles Dickens' Origin of Species."

    And my personal favourite, again from the same guy:
    "Now we assume n is infinity. Hmmm... that might not be too realistic... [thinks] ok, so a realistic value for n might be about 40... But 40 is quite close to infinity."

    Third Year (nearly in tears): "I don't understand it - I keep being marked down for not referencing my essays! But I had *five* references in that one - and it was three thousand words long! It's really stressing me out! I need good marks or I won't get into the Masters I want to do! What am I going to do if I can't get on the Masters?!"

    Me: "I can go through referencing with you if you'd like?"

    Third Year: "Nah, I can't be bothered."
