Okay, I don’t know what I’m asking, but what is your answer? – Classmate of Ashok Aggarwal

Of course, this one is a classic for my friends and me, especially when it is taken it out of context.  A student in my freshman Chemistry class asked this of our professor after having a frustrating time trying to get his question across clearly.  I don’t recall the response, but I’m sure it ended without much satisfaction or resolution from either side.  I can just imagine the professor saying politely, “why don’t you come see me after class, and we can discuss it further.”
