If law school-style exams covered other subjects …

THE COMPREHENSIVE BLUE BOOK TEST

Instructions: Read each question carefully. Answer all questions. Time limit: 3 hours. BEGIN IMMEDIATELY.

1. Biology

Create life. Estimate the differences in subsequent human culture if this form of life had developed 500 million years earlier, with special attention to its probable effect on the English parliamentary system.

2. Economics

Develop a realistic plan for refinancing the national debt. Trace the possible effects of your plan on these areas: Cubism, Donatist controversy, and the wave theory of light.

3. Engineering

The unassembled parts of a high-powered rifle have been placed in a box on your desk. Included is an instruction manual written in Swahili. In ten minutes a hungry Bengal tiger will be admitted into the room. Take whatever action you feel is appropriate. Be prepared to justify your decision.

4. Epistemology

Take a position for or against truth. Prove the validity of your position.

5. General Knowledge

Describe in detail, briefly.

6. History

Describe the history of the Papacy from its origins to the present day, concentrating especially but not exclusively on its social, political, economic, religious, and philosophical impact on Europe, Asia, America, and Africa. Be brief, concise, and specific.

7. Managerial Science

Define management. Define science. How do they relate. Create a generalized algorithm to optimize all managerial decisions. Assuming an 1130 CPU supporting 50 terminals, each terminal to activate your algorithm, design the communications interface and all necessary control problems.

8. Medicine

You have been provided with a razor blade, a piece of gauze, and a bottle of scotch. Remove your appendix. Do not suture until your work has been inspected. You have 15 minutes.

9. Music

Write a piano concerto. Orchestrate and perform it with flute and drum. You will find a piano under your seat.

10. Philosophy

11. Physics

Explain the nature of matter. Include in your answer an evaluation of the impact of the development of mathematics on science.

12. Political Science

There is a red telephone on the desk beside you. Start World War III. Report at length on its socio-political effects, if any.

13. Psychology

Based on your knowledge of their works, evaluate the emotional stability, degree of adjustment, and repressed frustrations of each: Alexander of Aphrodisias, Ramses II, Gregory of Nicea, and Hammurabi. Support your evaluation with quotations from each man’s work. It is not necessary to translate.

14. Public Speaking

Two thousand drug-crazed aborigines are storming the classroom. Calm them. You may use any ancient language except Latin or Greek.

15. Sociology

What sociological problems might accompany the end of the world? Construct an experiment to test your theory.

* Extra Credit

Define the universe. Give three examples.

* * For The Highly Motivated

Define law. Define justice. Discuss similarities, if any.

I was disappointed to see that Mathematics got left out. How about:

7.5 Mathematics

State and prove the positive integers and give an example of each.

Not quite. Rabbits only cohabit with other rabbits. Lawyers do it to any and everyone.
