Student Writes Joke Essay About Flat Earth, School Takes It Seriously

Man this student sounds like they'd be a prime recruit for the Flat Earth movement. They wrote a joke essay about the earth being flat, and the school ended up taking it so seriously that it manifested in them implementing a whole bit about the earth actually being round, into the curriculum. I'd say mission accomplished in the way of the student playing a solid little prank.

History Memes That Are As Good As Books Probably

This is the kind of professor that every school needs to make sure they get the kids fired up about Physics. This guy's in his 70's and he's out there effortlessly radiating an intoxicating youthful energy. Love all the antics, Prof.

Quick Tumblr Post On Ridiculous High Schooler Sayings

Pretty much all of us have that one memorable line from the strange days of high school that we can recall on a dime. It could be something like how if all your friends were to hypothetically jump off a bridge, you shouldn't too. Certainly a vivid way of encouraging people to not just do whatever everyone else is doing around them.

Teacher's "Expert" Opinion Gets Gloriously Disproven

Sometimes, even the experts need to get humbled. Take this teacher for instance. For whatever reason they insisted on trashing an art student's hard work. Well, that opinion went on to be disproven after the student's work ended up being selected amongst over 190 other pieces of art. Good for them!

This choosing beggar couldn't keep their story straight from the start. Apparently, them not being able to mooch off a classmate's notes will result in them straight up starving. It seems as if these entitled choosing beggars and their wealth of irrational demands will never stop popping out of the woodwork. It's up to the rest of the world to serve them the reality checks for free, when the opportunities present themselves. 

Check out another wild choosing beggar case, with this YouTuber who demanded free commissions, got rejected, and then unleashed a storm of threats.

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.

Um, coolest teacher ever. Apparently this teacher was trying to motivate his students to score an "80" or better on their next test, and it looks like his motivation tactic worked. They were ready to cut that hair!

Talk about an iconic moment in the history of The Simpsons. Literally anyone that's gotten back an unfavorable test score can relate to this scene. It hurts.

Wildest Reasons Students Didn't Complete Assignments

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most unexpected excuses that teachers received from students. We've got our fair share of excuses that were clearly blatant lies, and then we've got the brutal, unexpected reasons that kids didn't turn in assignments that were just crazy enough to be actual truths. You never know what could be going on in someone's life!

Kid Can't Understand Life Before Emails Were Around

It's quick little exchanges like this that spotlight just how much things have changed. Yes, in those olden days before emails were around people were still able to get stuff done. Might've taken a little extra exertion, but the world still kept spinning madly on. Anyone who has ever had a conversation with someone in a younger generation has likely had that, "dang I'm getting old" moment.
