Rejoice, for the exams are marked!

In case you were wondering, I haven’t actually dropped off the face of the earth. The lack of blogging around here has been due to me spending the last several days marking exams. But I am finally, finally, finally done with the marking! Rejoice!

And now that all the students, some of whom apparently read this blog occasionally, have written the exam, I would like to share with you one of my exam questions:

Estimate the daily total energy expenditure of a 38 year old, 220 lb, 6’4” Vancouver Canucks centreman during the hockey season

25 points to the first person who can tell me who the player in that question is!

  1. I will go with the safe answer and say: “Probably far too little for someone who gets paid far too much.”

    I call that the trivial solution.

  2. Sarah – I am very impressed, you beat the locals on figuring this one out! You win 25 shiny new points. Meaning that the Mac-Mc household is now in possession of 50,120 + 25 = 50,245 points. Which, as of this printing, are completely worthless. But shiny.
