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."

These might remind you of that one time you witnessed a full-fledged class clown create chaos in an otherwise peaceful classroom.

Student's Group Project Teammates Won't Help, Pro Revenge Ensues

There's something about group projects that just effortlessly bring out the worst in people. In the case of this group project, we have a wonderful story centered on a couple students in particular that were pretty much just plain old deadweight. Once the student hit their breaking point, the pro revenge from there was swift and critically effective. Added bonus in that the teacher was more than understanding of the situation, and made sure that the actual student trying hard on the project didn't suffer as a result of their lazy, entitled teammates.
