Maybe this guy ought to think about becoming a lawyer

He's really attuned to the fine print:
When a Maryland community college student saw on his syllabus that he could bring a “3x5 card” to an exam, he saw a key loophole and took advantage of the opportunity.

Elijah Bowen’s professor at Anne Arundel Community College, Reb Beatty, told students that they could bring a "3x5 card" to aid them during the upcoming exam -- but he meant inches.

Bowen noticed that his professor didn't specify metrics and instead brought in a 3x5 foot card, which helped him successfully pass his first exam of the semester on Tuesday in his Financial Accounting class.

I would have to argue that at 3 foot by 5 foot, it's no longer a 'card'.

BTW, the professor's name is Reb? As in, Johnny Reb? Where's the outrage? I guess the fact that today's snowflakes are generally ignorant of history has it's advantages.
