This is pretty much what happened to be in German class once in high school.

I had to prepare a presentation about two short books; One I was allowed to discuss based on a summary, one I should read myself. Ever the motivated pupil that I was, of course I did read it, and prepared the other from an interpretation found on the internet. The teacher thought I had read the other one :(

He lost me when he channeled Yogi Berra in the second frame, essentially telling us to pair people up in threes.

Though he rejected the label postmodernist (because philosophers hate to be labeled, even if it's accurate), Foucault was definitely no modernist.

I am so lost on the math here - is he saying that random chance would lead to correct guesses from Group A two-thirds of the time? Why is that not 50/50?

As per the comic:
67%-100%: book passes the test
34%-66%: book fails the test
0%-33%: book is assigned for a class on philosophical modernism

(it broke my heart sightly to use 33/34/66/67, but I didn't want to make this more confusing than it needs to be)

Edit: and as I said, the actual figure of 1/3 to 2/3 is completely made up. Real experiments usually use much tighter error margins, which they calculate using statistics and math based on the number of measurements and other factors. So by using such a huge margin Zach is actually giving the book a really big chance to fail the test - or rather, it requires that the test would give such a clear answer that there's absolutely no doubt.
