I would stick with caucasian.
It's an interesting approach, too bad they decide to ignore data that doesn't match their theory. And even then it's perfectly possible that life evolved/got more complex faster in the beginning before the growth of complexity got to the current model, a kind of biological inflation, akin to the cosmological inflation.
You can also have to opposite problem I had a professor giving a test so easy that the worse grade was 17 out of 20. I would prefer an almost impossible test and then be graded against my classmates, you just have to provide some rules against gaming (minimum requirements for example).
I think this is a perfect example why we need anti-cartel and anti-collusion laws. The students have collectively found one way to beat the professor algorithm, managed to create an effective system to prevent anyone from braking the agreement so by my book, as we are talking about programming classes, means that they understand the essential part of what they are supposed to be learning, so I don't see why a good professor would do otherwise.
I personally believe in committing as early as possible, it's never too soon to screw up your code and having to go back.
Glenn Beck is an expert in conspiracy theories so you should value is opinion on the subject. It takes one to know one.
The year 2038 is way more serious than the 2k year problem, because the latter was mainly a limitation of user space apps, the year 2038 on the other hand affects operating systems and hardware, and, specially on embedded systems, it will be very hard or impossible to fix.
