Appeal your grade

I had a teacher who told us on the first day of class that he accepted bribes as long as they started in the mid-6 digits. He had no moral problem with bribery, he was just being practical and wanted to make sure the amount would offset any future income lost from being fired for accepting a bribe.


  1. Now I’m concerned. See, I do that every year, at the beginning of class. Am I your teacher? If so, what kind of odd paradox loop does that put us in?

  2. A flawlessly logical argument… Mid-six figures. Nice!

  3. Don’t worry, Random, you’re not my teacher. Nor do I think you were. (Unless you are a colorblind millionaire who taught prob-stat at a Catholic school in Michigan)
