Popular Reddit thread looks at hilarious student/teacher exchange

Have you ever received a ridiculous answer from a student? A Reddit thread is revealing the funniest teacher and student exchanges participants have "ever seen." The thread is titled "We asked our biology teacher for the funniest answer someone has put on a test, we were not disappointed."

One of the popular questions on which the thread asks teachers to elaborate is a biology question referring to nitrogen. They ask: "Explain how a nitrogen atom in the upper atmosphere becomes useful to an archeologist trying to determine the age of a bone." A student responds that s/he has no idea about the answer, but continues writing to ask dating advice.
