Loud Neighbor Thinks Sound Waves Go Side-To-Side, Pro Revenge Ensues

Just when we thought we'd maybe seen it all, we come across a frighteningly clueless human being who has been operating under the assumption that sound waves only move side-to-side. Either that was some kind of totally awful excuse for inconsiderate behavior, or they really meant that. I almost hope it was just a lame excuse. Either way, the pro revenge that ensued was quick and brutal. For some more juicy revenge drama check out this boss who docked an employee's wages illegally, and went on to pay the price

A loud neighbor thinks that sound waves only move side-to-side, learns otherwise, and pro revenge ensues.

IT Guy Assumes Professor Understands Technology, Professor Proves Otherwise

Don't judge a book by its cover. For better or for worse. What initially seems like a promising situation with a professor who gives off technology savvy vibes, ends up devolving into a puzzling situation where the IT dude has to work around the professor's glaring lack of knowledge on how an internet browser works. At least the issue was able to be "resolved."

IT Guy Learns Machine Is Stuck On In "Explode" Setting

It's not crazy to wonder, maybe there's a way to avoid having a piece of equipment risk explosion if one computer monitor fails. Not trying to be pushy here, but it's a thought. Tech support sees its own share of nightmares, and we should thank them every day for solving the problems everyone else seems so inept at dealing with. For another fun tech support story, here's the tale of Miss Jones.

Quick Tumblr Thread Of Professors With Max Chill

Some of us grew up hearing from our high school teachers that college professors were going to be insufferably difficult. Some of us ended up with that being the case. Then others, others encountered professors with surreal levels of chill or just genuine detached boredom. Whether these email exchanges are real or not, they certainly paint quite the pretty, relaxed picture of what the higher education life can be like. I wonder if it's even more ridiculous nowadays with everyone being forced to complete their studies from home.
