Due East

It was an 8th grade class. There was a debate raging. Which way was east? (They'll get into throw down arguments about anything.)

At least the door was open (I can figure out north and from there east, but only if I can see where the street is). I determined where east was, and one student was happy while the other was disappointed.

Problem solved? Well, not quite. Now they had to discuss this. And they had to debate how they found their east. N-->E-->S-->W going clockwise.

"Never ever smoke weed."

Well, I guess that's one way to remember it.
