Frustrated Tutor Gives Wrong Answers to Lazy Student

School can be hard and regrettably expensive. Seeing your classmates not take anything seriously and still pass can be frustrating when you value your education, like this entitled college slacker who demanded their classmates notes and got denied. Also, if they're trying to be something like a doctor, you'd hope they actually study and know their field. This tutor got so frustrated with a ridiculously lazy student that he went and gave him some answers. Not the right answers, just some answers. Other teachers have wily ways of outsmarting cheaters, like this old professor.

Psychological Tumblr Thread Explains Why Some Spaces Just Feel Odd

Your brain looks for context cues, and some places and times just don't have enough of them for you to know how to act. Kinda makes sense. Some other explanations would be that you don't hang out at bowling alleys a lot, have social anxiety or just dislike creepy-ass abandoned buildings. That said, the concept of liminal spaces are interesting. Tumblr can be a rabbit hole, full of fun history and imaginative threads on aliens being fought off by bears.
