Teacher Given Pink Slip, Chooses Least Qualified Students for School Project

School drama can be strange. While it's probably not advisable to use the mediocre work of students to get back at faculty, this teacher played it cool in an unfair situation. That said, teachers often totally misjudge their students, like these students in this social experiment. In a twist on teacher/student expectations, here's a student who won an art contest to spite their rude teacher.

Tumblr Thread: Inspired DND Campaign Is a Feels Trip

Dungeons and Dragons lets your most creative friends come up with amazing ways to send you on adventures. Sometimes dungeon masters take the story far enough that it actually draws out a real emotional response from the players. People think a lot about fantasy worlds, like how this guy proposes that wizards are a bunch of magic snobs or this thing about dwarves having intelligent super beards.

The life of a barista is a weird one. When every customer you have is someone who hasn't had their first coffee of the day, there's no knowing what kind of people can lumber in.

Boss Demands Demolished Office, Gets More than That

There's a right way and a wrong way to demolish an office, and it's looking like these guys took the wrong way. Maybe they shouldn't have taken their boss's orders so literally, or could have planned better. Either way what they got was a big headache. This one didn't come down on anyone, but it's not uncommon for a boss to orchestrate their own downfall.

Student Wins Art Contest to Spite Rude Art Teacher

Sometimes teachers misjudge their students, like this teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment. Other times, the powers that be can be mistaken and disrespectful, like this staff who made a student wait to report a fire. In this case, it was an art teacher who was soundly put in their place after handing down some harsh criticism. Art is subjective, anyway.

In an extremely ill-advised parenting move, this mom kept a black widow spider and its egg sack in what she thought was a sealed container. It doesn't take much thought to realize why this is probably not a good idea. In fact, in may even be a bad idea. A really bad idea. For something slightly less bad but still about spiders, here's a tumblr thread on how wolf spiders run cranberry bogs.

There's a tradition in the U.S. navy that no submarine is lost at sea, and every Christmas a broadcast is sent out to all the crews of those subs still on duty. Naturally, tumblr took it and made it into a whole ghost ship thing, which is somehow macabre but also heartwarming. Why not, people see some unexplained stuff at sea. For a totally classic navy story, here's a Navy operations officer who pulled the laziest move ever.
