I found this on the University of Bristol's website, it is the final
question to be answered on a walk around the Floating Harbour in Bristol.
I think it is quite possibly the best question ever to have appeared as a
part of a genuine test or exam.


10. Make you way to a licensed establishment and furnish yourself with a
suitable product of the biotechnology industry.
Q12. How long does it take to drink a pint of beer? Design a fair test for
your hypothesis, include a list of necessary equipment and a risk
assessment. Finally, carry out your experiment and report your findings.
