We Can't All Fail

Waiting for the Punchline offers a little finals anxiety control tip:
When I start panicking that I'm going to fail an exam, I look around the room and pick out 10 people who I know are dumber than me or will do worse on the exam. Then I figure, worst case scenario, there's no way the professor would fail more than 10 people in the class, so I'm safe. It really boosts morale, you should try it sometime.

Great advice -- except for those of us who cannot identify 10 dumber people!
