「非・存在を証明しなさい」

(Chair Philosophy)

An eccentric philosophy professor gave a one question final exam
after a semester dealing with a broad array of topics.

The class was already seated and ready to go when the professor
picked up his chair, plopped it on his desk and wrote on the board:
"Using everything we have learned this semester, prove that this
chair does not exist."

Fingers flew, erasers erased, notebooks were filled in furious
fashion. Some students wrote over 30 pages in one hour attempting to
refute the existence of the chair. One member of the class however,
was up and finished in less than a minute.

Weeks later when the grades were posted, the rest of the group
wondered how he could have gotten an A when he had barely written
anything at all.

His answer consisted of two words: "What chair?"

<※1>
“finished”は以下の2つの可能性があります。
 1.One member was finished ….(終えていた)
 2.One menber finished ….(終えた)

1は形容詞 (be) finished「済んでいる、終えている」。2は動詞 finish
の過去形「終えた」。


<※2>
have got はイコール have ですが、have gotten は何でしょう?
got と gotten に違いは無さそうですが、わざわざ使い分ける意味がある
のです。

単純に言えば、
 ・have got = have / possess (持つ / 所有している)
 ・have gotten = have received / have acquired (受け取っている)
