This is what I'm dealing with

Yesterday
Me: You didn't fill in your information correctly. What year were you born in again?
5th grade boy: 1953.
Me: 1953? Try again.
5th grade boy: 1953.
Me: Are you sure about that?
5th grade boy: Yes, I'm positive.
Me: Do the math.
5th grade boy (in all seriousness): I swear, Mr. Massey. I was born in 1953!

Today
Me: In what state does matter change its shape without changing its volume?
Another 5th grade boy: California.

These are both relatively new students, by the way. I won't claim responsibility.
