Rude Professor Won't Allow ADA Compliant Tablet, Pays for It

It doesn't seem like letting a student have an incredibly necessary tablet would be such a big deal, but ol' professor decided to get real cocky about it. On the opposite side of things, some educators are actually pretty cool, like these teachers who pulled total bro moves.

Dudes Avoid Chaotic Evil With Skimpy Outfits And Love

Tumblr did a good thing with this fun and wild little story about a Professor who dodged ultimate danger, with some skimpy clothing and kindness. Seriously, whether this story is real or not, it is amazing. Just picturing a bunch of laughing, smiling dudes out on an adventure, dancing and entertaining for their kicks at night, taking none of it seriously, is enough to warm the heart. Glad to hear that they managed to avoid a perilous predicament. 

Take in some more fun from Tumblr with this post about how dwarves have intelligent super beards.

Professor Insists On Lengthy Essay Being On One Page, Students Comply

Well, that professor got exactly what they asked for. Sometimes, as a student you encounter a teacher who seems to carry on in such a way that indicates they're the one who ultimately needs to be schooled. Fortunately, these students had their wits about them, and happily, maliciously complied. Can't imagine that the teacher was too stoked about the outcome.

The Time a Student Got Their Professor's Name Incredibly Wrong

Back in school, many of us were tempted to write a goofy fake name or have a bunch of stupid place holding statements in essays like "Dumb evidence goes here god dammit." More times than we'd like to admit, we remembered and deleted them moments before turning in said essay. This time a student actually turned it in, tried to save themselves with an apology, and the professor had a sense of humor about it. It's not too far-fetched, teachers have to deal with dumb essays all the time.

Dude Turns Grouchy Professor's Phone Policy Into Prank

This power-tripping old school professor demanded all phone calls be taken publicly, so naturally, a cunning student took advantage of the situation. For school drama, here are times school presentations went off the rails as well as a teacher who lost half their class's papers and tried to fail them all.

Professor Tries To Dismiss Student With Visual Impairment

This professor tried and failed to dismiss a student for her visual impairment. So, the student proceeded to secretly record the professor and ended up getting them barred from their field for life. Definitely a successfully executed revenge against what sounds like a terrible professor.
