    A sharp German student has used the country's freedom of information act to request a copy of his exam questions, in advance.

    This is really funny because it puts German authorities in SUCH a pickle - they'll feel obliged to follow legislation to the letter in time and release the info before the deadline, but it means thousands of students could get the answers to an exam, before they've taken it! The teen's ingenuity has led to a job offer from an internet-based freedom of info company though, before he's even sat his exams and got his certificates...which is highly unusual in dear Deutschland!
