|Sixth grade science teacher Mrs. Samson asks her class: “Who can tell me which organ of the human body expands to 10 times its usual size when stimulated?”
Nobody raises a hand, so she calls on the first student to look her way. “Mary, can you tell me which organ of the human body expands to 10 times its usual size when stimulated?”
Mary stands up, blushing furiously. “How dare you ask such a question?” she says. “I’m going to complain to my parents, who will complain to the principal, who will have you fired!”
Mrs. Sampson is shocked by Mary’s reaction, but undaunted. She asks the class the question again, and this time Sam raises his hand.
“Yes, Sam?” says Mrs. Sampson. “Ma’am, the correct answer is the iris of the human eye.” “Very good, Sam. Thank you.”
Mrs. Sampson then turns to Mary and says, “Mary, I have 3 things to tell you: first, it’s clear that you have not done your homework. Second, you have a dirty mind. And third, I fear one day you are going to be sadly disappointed.”
This is classic!

No, the blue part of the eraser is not for erasing pen ink.
We’re used to thinking that the blue part of the red-blue eraser is used for erasing pen ink. We even tell our children that when they ask us.
But has it ever worked? Didn’t we all end up with torn pages after a vigorous attempt of trying to erase whatever we wrote down using a pen?
The blue part of the eraser is used for erasing pencil marks on grainy art paper, hence the rough and grainy texture of the eraser. It would require you to use more force to erase something written on these rough paper if you’re using a normal eraser (the pink part). The bue eraser makes the task easier.
Not sure where the logic of erasing pen ink came from, but at least now you can stop damaging the pages of your exercise books now.
