A Tree Falls in The Woods

A tree falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear the sound it
purportedly makes... Does the falling tree make a sound? There is only
one correct answer. A tree falls in the woods and the impact of the
tree against the forest floor reverberates across the entire planet of
Earth and the chain reaction dislodges a particle in Barak Obama's
brain which leads to his decision to end the world in a nuclear
firestorm... He calls forth for the nuclear football and it's game
over for the planet Earth. This is actually what I wrote in college
and I submitted it to my philosophy teacher. I had no will to give any
other answer to the question. It was the only answer I could give
unless I should return a blank sheet of paper instead. So what is the
real point of the question? The point of the question must be: What is
the problem with all of these other students at this college? I'm
normal and nobody else is. You would think that at least one other
normal person exists at a large university but you would be mistaken.
