This Made Me Chuckle

Who says studying is totally boring? I quote my psychology textbook:

A linguistics professor was lecturing his class one day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."

Haha,
Very good....

Oh and by the way I am still planning to respond to your comment on my blog ages ago. Just waiting for the buzz of exams to die down.

What about the word: disirregardless. What does it really mean?
