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.

Most Useless Things Students Were Taught In School

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most useless bits of information that students were taught in school. We've all been there. Just muddling through the academic grind because we have to, and already aware enough to know that so much of the mind numbing information we're being force fed won't actually end up serving a purpose out in the real world.

Smartest/Most Creative Ways Students Cheated

Students will go to extraordinary lengths to not have to study for that next, dreaded exam. Seriously, it's remarkable. We're talking devious kids printing out fake Snapple labels with answer keys on the labels; we're talking students collaborating to cheat off each other's tests by using M&M's; we're talking students tapping their fingertips on their desks to create some kind of morse code. There's some kind of brilliance interwoven in acts of academic cheating.

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.

Funny and Creative Textbook Doodles

They say "whatever you are, be the best" and that includes turning school textbooks into art. We've all seen the classic devil horns, mustache and missing teeth, but these folks really upped the ante. With a little creativity and with no one looking, some acts of vandalism can be strangely amazing.

Entitled Student Steals Designs, Gets Humiliated

This entitled and lazy student's antics finally caught up with her. The revenge as it unfolded, could not have gone any better. Through a little coordination the classmate of "lazy student" and the teacher were able to set up a presentation, where lazy student was exposed for stealing multiple companies' work. She gets a proper calling out in front of everyone, and hopefully absorbed the reality check for what it was. Do your own work!

At this point we can pretty conclusively say that there have been simpler times. So here are some memory-jogging images of things like toys and TV shows for people who grew up in the 90s and maybe a little bit into the early 00s. Hey man, it's something. And here are some nostalgic memes for the 80s and 90s kids.

Classmates Steal Student's Work, Student Sets Them Up To Fail

Those classmates should've just done the right thing from the get go, and not gone about stealing someone else's work. Seems like the stresses of the academic world can drive some people to do some truly selfish, and insensitive things.
