Educe/eccentric

The world finally educed the reason behind Sal Grongerd’s eccentric martial behavior (proposing open marriage, putting up a moat around his office so his wife couldn’t reach him, introducing her as his business colleague at their anniversary dinner)–he was simply a stupid idiot.

My eccentric professor, Mr. Wenis, was such a champion of learning by immersion that he built a time machine and took our lab section to ancient Greece where we were all to educe the Pythagorean Theorum in its natural habitat. I jumped ship and went instead to ancient Rome where I scored an invite to one of Caligula’s sexy parties.
