the question master

so there are a few people you will meet in law school, any law school, and one of them is: The Question Master
this person is one that reads the text closely and highlights like any normal reader but flies under the radar in class until they feel the need to pop out, almost like a prairie dog, and remind the class that they are in fact not a slacker but actually super smart and know what is going on. 
They like to ask a question that really isn’t a question at all but mainly a restatement of a difficult or little known concept which the class has forgotten or is struggling with and then they ask the teacher “Right?” So basically the teacher has no other option but to say “Yes Question Master you are correct” and the QM slides back down into his prairie dog hole and smiles a self satisfied smile because he has let the class know that he knows what is going on better than them.
The Question Master is disliked by all, except for those in his study group and even then his smarty pants comments are only tolerated for so long. My advice for the Question Master is to stay quiet and talk to the teacher at the end of class when everyone else is gone because then the teacher knows that at least one student is reading the notes after the cases and the other students don’t hate you. Win Win… except that the Question Master might  not get the thrill of proving to his peers that he knows whats what but oh well at least people would want to talk with you…
I think I was veering into Question Master territory the other week in my Property class. I had a question about a case referenced in the text and when I asked the professor it came out wrong and I ended up looking like a QM. Sorry fellow students, it won’t happen again. I will go back to asking questions where I really don’t know the answer and leave the QM questions to the real Question Master…
