CRAZY PROFESSOR

ONE OF THE OLDER ENGINEERING PROFESSORS WAS WELL KNOWN FOR PULLING
SURPRISE TESTS ON HIS CLASSES. ONE DAY A STUDENT DECIDED TO ASK THE
PROFESSOR IF HE WAS GOING TO GIVE A TEST THE NEXT DAY. THE PROFESSOR
RESPONDED BY SAYING THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE A TEST TOMORROW UNLESS
HE CAME INTO THE CLASSROOM THROUGH THE HOT AIR DUCT NEAR THE CEILING
ON THE FRONT WALL. EVERYONE CONGRATULATED THE STUDENT ON HIS IDEA AND
WENT HOME FEELING CONFIDENT THAT THEY WOULDN'T HAVE A TEST. THE NEXT
DAY THE STUDENTS WERE ALL IN THEIR SEATS AS THE BELL FOR CLASS RANG.
THE SCREEN COVERING THE AIR DUCT POPPED OPEN, OUT CAME THE PROFESSOR
TO THE AMAZEMENT OF ALL AND HE PROCEEDED TO PASS OUT THEIR TESTS.

THE GORDON NAGEL TRAIL

THERE WAS A GIRL AND A GUY PARKING ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD ALONG THE
GORDON NAGEL TRAIL. THE GUY GOT PISSED BECAUSE THE GIRL WOULDN'T PUT
OUT SO HE KICKED HER OUT OF THE CAR AND TOOK OFF. SHE WAS NEVER HEARD
FROM AGAIN. IT IS SAID THAT SHE DIED IN THE WOODS BY THE ROAD AND NOW
HER GHOST LIVES THERE. AT MIDNIGHT EACH NIGHT SHE COMES BACK TO THE
PLACE HER BOYFRIEND LEFT HER AND SEARCHES FOR HIM. IT IS SAID THAT IF
YOU DRIVE BY THAT PLACE AT MIDNIGHT YOUR CAR WILL STALL AND WILL NOT
START UNTIL SHE HAS SEARCHED YOUR CAR FOR HER BOYFRIEND.

Submitter comment: THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL REPORTS OF CARS STALLING ON THIS ROAD LATE AT
NIGHT. IT IS AN ISOLATED ROAD BETWEEN TWO TOWNS. IT HAS BEEN SAID
THAT THE HIGH VOLTAGE POWER LINES THAT RUN ALONG THE ROAD CAUSE THE
CARS TO STALL BUT THIS HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN.
