A few days ago, Reddit user Esperagon posted a question from his exam that would have stumped Plato himself.
The film student from Sheridan College in Toronto was faced with an impossible question in his sound recording test, one which no amount of cramming could have foreseen. The student was asked the question “What is a microphone?” with the only possible answers of “True” or “False.”
Many different theories behind the obscure question were brought up in the comments section, ranging from a computer typo to a philosophical musing about the nature of logic and linguistics. All of which were, of course, fiercely debated:
“There is no wrong answer, it’s just more about pushing yourself and thinking outside of the box.”
