Total BS Reasons Teachers Gave People A Worse Grade

School is one of the first times in life that you realize you're in a vast system that you have little control over. When it comes to grading, some people play things by the book, don't even resort to incredibly creative cheating, and still get points taken off for a total BS reason. Most teachers are sensible people who have their students best interest in mind, but there are others who just want to see the future burn. Teachers can be incredibly weird like that.

Guy Confronts Son's Teacher For Teaching "Blue Blood" Myth

You remember learning that the reason veins can appear blue is cause deoxygenated blood turns blue? Well that's total horseshit. Your blood doesn't turn blue, and the reason your veins might look that way is because blue and red light travel though skin with different levels of success, so what's reflected back is a more bluish color. If you just learned this, you may be intrigued by these people who learned basic stuff way too late. Anyway, this dad asked if he was wrong for being really persistent with a teacher teaching the wrong thing.

The lesson was supposed to be "things aren't always as they seem" but based on the results, it seems like this class might be a waste of time. We've had "mindblowing" ideas like this in the past, but almost no one does them, because if they don't go perfectly, as this professor demonstrates, it becomes very awkward.
