Just a few days ago, a History of Globalization class received the saddest email ever from one extremely distressed classmate. After breaking his nose that morning and landing himself in the hospital, this kid's only wish was to have not missed a pop quiz. Our tragic hero refused to sit idly by and emailed the class listserv, only to discover that the feared pop quiz had in fact occurred. At least your day didn't suck this much. Feel better pal. Maybe this will help.
