Eminence High School’s Intelligent Classroom software was on the fritz that Friday, so popular high school math teacher Buddy Berry improvised.
He lit birthday candles and stuck them into hamburger buns. Students armed with water pistols attempted, mostly in vain, to put out the flames amidst bursts of laughter. It was harder than it looked and most of the candles still flickered atop soggy bread.
He was teaching a lesson in probabilities.
