Story told to me by another teacher:
"Since Great Britain is an island... If you drill down far enough, will you reach water?"
Yes, Great Britain is an island. And yes, if you drill down far enough, you will probably reach water (it is called a well). But how are these two subjects related?!? Upon further questioning, it seems that this student thought that all islands floated.
