You were ahead of Huey Lewis and the News and Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham. Congrats.

T. H. is a junior and throughout the year his quiz scores in Algebra II at best have been B -. About an hour after being hypnotized, he took a difficult quiz that he was the only one of 2 students whom received a perfect score (the other always gets perfect scores) It was not an easy quiz and that was his first perfect score. I asked him about it and at times he stared at questions but the answer would eventually pop in his mind. Basically he could focus and find the answers better for the one quiz.
