And finally, a story out of Russia today. A university lecturer in central Russia is being investigated after her students complained she made them sit for a 23-hour exam. No food, no bathroom breaks. And the students said the teacher was drunk, to boot. Landysh Zaripova denied being drunk and told bosses the students were just trying to get revenge on her because they couldn’t pass her exam in nuclear physics.

Twenty-three hours? And you thought the the SATs were exhausting.
