Class Quote

A quick one from a history course.

A student said that Andrew Gordon had described prewar Japan as “vibrant” and our professor thought that Gordon would never use such a positive term for that period. The discussion was tabled because the professor didn’t want anyone to have to search through several hundred pages of text for a single word. However, a few brief moments later…

“Andrew Gordon: vibrant! Page 52.” – N-
“Get out of here! Did you use GoogleBooks?” – Prof. D-
“I certainly did.” – N- smugly replied.
