    I once convinced someone that this kid from another class who came into our classroom was just a hallucination. I'm pretty sure he was high at the time; I saw him take a lot of pills.

    Light travels in waves. It also travels in particles, but also waves. Nobody knows why. Except Rodney McKay.

    A friend of mine once convinced someone that the German national anthem is simply saying "Deutschland" over and over to the tune.
