Black Box Assignment

Over the weekend, our university science teacher gave us a “black box” assignment. We were to use the scientific method, that is, test our hypotheses through experimentation, to determine what was in a sealed, four-inch square box.

On Monday, we returned the boxes and submitted our papers. One student’s report consisted of a single sentence: “It’s an egg.”

“How’d you solve it?” I asked.

“Easy.” he said. “I used my own scientific method. I went to the airport and sent the box through the X-ray machine.”
