1. Tell us about a significant event in your life and how it influenced
you.

ANSWER:
------------------------------------------------------------
I can still remember the day I got my first college
admissions booklet. It arrived in the mail in a big manilla
envelope, and it was like Christmas and my birthday rolled
all in to one: What marvels would I find inside? I had one
day hoped to work for a college admissions board, designing
questions that would be designed precisely to allow the
applicants to best reveal their strengths and desires, their
dreams and the challenges they had had to overcome.

The first essay question was, 'Tell us about a significant
event in your life and how it influenced you.' It was a bit
of a letdown, to be completely frank.

ANSWER:
------------------------------------------------------------
Write a question that you would put on a college application
and answer it.

ANSWER:
------------------------------------------------------------
Talk about one thing that you could do to help the
environment.

ANSWER:
------------------------------------------------------------
I would not use 'Write a question that you would put on a
college application and answer it' on a college application,
as answering it takes up too much paper and contributes to
deforestation.

I know you're trolling me, Young Jacob, because no one ever mentions
"This Page Intentionally Left Blank" without the sub-text being "Tech
writers sure are dumm."

My wife attended some training at Hewlett-Packard the other day, and
the instructor had a PowerPoint slide that said, "This Slide
Intentionally Left Blank." I thought the joke was funny enough to
steal.
