I sat in suspension for the ENTIRE 6TH GRADE because I defied my science teacher on this:
"There is a Pendulum in Washington DC that is perpetual"
I fought that statement, with scientific experiments. My parents backed me up. I was sent to the office day in and day out. Until my dad finally went to the school to basically hand her her ass in the lab. From that point on, I was transferred to a higher grade of science class, and spent that daily time period in a suspension room doing homework.
Teachers are dumb. You know who is famously dumb ? Doctors. Professors, Doctors and rich kid college students. That's who I work with day in and day out. These motherfuckers think they are god's gift to the earth, but they are so goddam dumb that most of them can't grasp such concepts as:
Cabling a projector to a laptop. One doctor brought a CRT to a hall, and a projector. "I have connected the projector". The student walked to the front of the class and realised that he had ham-handed the source end of the video cable into the monitor, and the other side into the projector. The Laptop was not even part of the circuit. I understand that not everyone understands computers, but that right there is fucked up and malfunctioning logic.
Some people should not be teachers. That is basic knowledge!
Some of the stupidest people I have ever encountered in life were attornies.
More than I would expect to encounter.
Remarkably, I know quite a few attorneys and only maybe 1 or 2 should have their throats slit. Mean ones, yes. But not stupid ones.
Real Estate agents, however, should be loaded into a rocket and shot into the sun.
i could not agree more
Because it takes more than meat-factory classes to be a teacher. You have to WANT to be a teacher. You must be open minded enough to know that, yes, sometimes the kids will know more than you and sometimes your knowledge is flawed.
My g/f is two weeks away from becoming a certified teacher. It drives me nuts that she will be put under this blanket because of people who really shouldn't be teaching our children.
most people understand there are good teachers and bad teachers
hell, my mom was a teacher
Too expensive. I say we kill them and say we put them into a rocket destined for the sun.
Better watch it - I have YET to go off on an anti-liberal rant here
well, as soon as you have to spend the rest of your life paying for a war started by a liberal then you can start your ranting
I wish I still had the stack of referrals I got in MS/HS. Some of them were frame worthy.
Most of mine are just being a high school student...who didn't like HS, but they've entertained me.
- It is required that students bring some type of work with them to detention -
"During detention, I asked all students who did not have work to do to exit the classroom before I did my attendance. A few students obliged. Bryan did not follow instructions. When I walked around the classroom, observing everyones work, Bryan had his head down and nothing with him. I politely asked Bryan to leave my classroom in which he responded "FUCK OFF". I told Bryan he would not be credited for the detention. In a threatening manner, Bryan got up and knocked his desk over and walked out of the classroom, not five minutes later, Bryan reappeared at the classroom door and said "FUCK YOU". Bryan walked around the hall and while passing by says "FUCK YOU AGAIN". This is unacceptable.
I got suspended for 5 days for that, that teacher was a bitch though and it was completetly worth the 5 days out, I passed with flying colors that year.
And I have YET to go on an anti-conservative one
Info worthy quote, yet again Cel.
Yeah, but I agree with you on certain points. Especially these "self-enlightened" college kid types who don't have a job, a car, any responsibilities, or anything to work for. I work two jobs, commute 120 miles weekly, pay for all my expenses, fuel and car insurance.
I luckily have dodged the douchebag professor bullet this semester, but have had my share of run-ins with total morons. My engineering proffessor last year had us do a bungee-cord elasticity lab for about 4 weeks. We studied the characteristics of different length cords, mass, density, and temperature. Our final project was based on a practical test to see if we could calculate the stretch of a cord in certain conditions. The day before, he laid out the syllabus that told us that we had to be able to figure out the stretch of a cord - based on its unstretched length, hang it the right amount off the floor, and let it drop with a certain mass so that it just barely touched the ground.
The day we ended up going forward with the test, he tells us that we have to do it without a given cord length, mass, or a given height we need to shoot for. In front of about 45 kids, and two professors my group called him out on it. He tried to talk around it and explain that our formulas that we had would calculate it. With no variables. With no numbers. Right buddy.
Elasticity formulas are laid out in Quantum Engineering by the stack. I would make the x-mass weight moot, then stretch the cord to the exact surface of the floor. Shit, get rid of the floor, but keep the results. Get rid of the Cord, but keep the travel and elasticity, then refer to the mass-unknown or potentially masses weight that does / does not exist, sharing / not sharing a single molecule / anti molecule with the again - floor that doesn't necessarily have to exist.
For fun I would make the weight shatter against the non-floor and detonate the entire experiment - explaining that the experiment and the universe that we live in was infinitely unstable from it's very inception.
Lol. We actually cracked out some quatum physics books the night before just for kicks.
But yes, making the floor explode would definately be for the win.
Stuff like this is bull shit, Teachers should be more willing then anyone else in the world to be open to new ideas and learn new things.
If a student says you're wrong, a teacher should pull out the books and prove that they're right.
P.S my dad use to be a teacher. that's why I aint beable to rite no good.
Try going to a christian school and telling them creation is only a theory. Man, they hated me.
