ONION: Iranian Science Teachers May Be Enriching Students

Posted in humor, Iran, Nuclear Power, The Onion, Uncategorized by Curtis on 9/29/06

This is going down as one of my all-time favorites:

“We have reason to believe that specially trained Iranian science teachers are taking raw, unrefined brain power and bombarding it with knowledge at accelerated levels,” said U.S. Undersecretary of Defense For Intelligence Stephen Cambone at a Tuesday press conference. “If current levels of student concentration remain this high, Iran could be a mere five to eight years away from developing an atomic scientist.”

The students are then continually exposed to heavy material, taught to achieve critical thought, and finally graduate to a state of explosive productivity.

    Yes, I’ve heard about their sophisticated system of Cartesian Coordinates, which allows them to target virtually any point on the grid without discrimination. Scaaaary.
