People Share The Most Messed Up Thing That Ever Happened At Their School

It's easy to think back on your school days as the best time of your life...


Who are we kidding? Middle school was a waking nightmare and we all just barely survived high school. Terrible, dystopian stories littered school campuses all over the country and, fortunately, the internet is here to gather up some of the worst for us.

WARNING: Some entries involve murder and sexual conduct.

Reddit user, u/Throwawayv6969, wanted to hear about the worst school days when they asked:

What was the most messed up thing that ever happened in your school?

Darn It! So Close!

So, at the beginning of maybe my sophomore year of high school, we were all announced that if they were no fights for the entire school year, every class would get a pizza party, pretty stupid, I know, but it surprisingly almost worked. Up until about a couple of weeks before the school year ended and there was a fight in one of the main halls. Someone shouted, "Great! We don't get a pizza party now!"


An Over The Top Respose

A substitute teacher was trying to get the attention of a troublesome student who had earbuds in playing music. The teacher went up and pulled the earbuds out and the dude got up and started beating the sh-t out of the poor old man. He would've killed him too if my teacher hadn't taken him down.


Sounds Like Something Boys Would Do...Or Idiots.

One of the most f-cked up things I saw at school were 2 lads in biology class, they were sat next to each other and both had a scalpel each for dissecting frogs or something like that. Anyway one jabs the other one slightly with the blade in the arm enough to draw a little bit of blood. The other one reacts with a harder jab to the other with his blade in his arm while shouting f-ck off.

Anyway this escalated to the point where both of their arms ended up completely butchered with neither of them backing down with harder and deeper cuts with blood all over the classroom. It was crazy to watch ( the teacher had left the room while all this was happening )


Be Sure To Look At The Grade Level

A boy and a girl from my class once went to the girls' bathroom to down shots of liquor during a break in the middle of the schoolday in 5th grade. I was there to guard the door to make sure they wouldn't be caught.

This one would be up there


More Money, More Problems

Happened a week ago before coronacation was announced. I'm a foreign exchange student in the US and this freshman I knew was secretly cracking bank accounts and PayPal accounts, selling the information online etc.. 5 days before the closing of the school he got arrested in middle of class, because he was flexing with his stolen bank accounts and somebody reported him (He actually had over $750k+).

Ended up being a good exchange memory for me.


The WHAT Week?

Some boys in 6th grade had a fight in the canteen. Apparently one of boys talked sh-t about the other boy's mother. Of course the boy got pissed and started beating the sh-t out of him. They were pushing, cursing, kicking, punching and screaming at each other. The teachers stopped the fight and both boys got suspended.

This was only the first week of school. That escalated fast.



I've got plenty but I'll just stick to one topic. So the kids at my school are kinda stupid and think that it's funny to flush stuff down the toilet. Within this shortened school year someone has flushed a Nike sneaker, a dead squirrel, a big fish and a sh-t ton of condoms. I know you can find the first 3 on Snapchat and the last one is because my school is full of horny people who decide the bathrooms are their personal trash cans and sex spots.


A Funeral For Everyone But You

My cousin (by marriage, not by blood) got killed in a car accident during my sophomore year. She was really popular around the school, a cheerleader and heavily liked by everyone. That day was weird. I wasn't too heavily affected because we weren't close by any means but everyone else? Damn. They brought in grief counselors to the library so people could talk to them, friends were just bawling, and I don't recall any classes actually being taught that day. It was just silent altogether. The funeral was pretty big. I won't forget other family members just crying throughout the whole thing.


Unnecessary Violence

In middle school, some guy who was known to be rebellious, stabbed the eye of a female classmate of mine with an orange sharpie. Orange liquid came out of her eyeball and it was dripping around everywhere because she was screaming and running around out of panic.


Just All Good Things

Well there was that one time where we had 6-7 fights in a single day.

There was also that one time where we had to go into a 20-25 minute lockdown because some kid got into a fight or argument and their mom or dad ended up coming to back their kid up. People thought that the parent had a gun or something.

Oh, that reminds me, when I was a freshman, people were starting to go home when suddenly everyone just started running in the opposite direction ASAP, running into random classrooms. Turns out, some dude got arrested by the cops and according to some people, they literally cuffed him on our school's door steps.


Would They Then Retreat To The Rafters Afterwards?

The phantom sh-tter.

Basically some girl or dude was crapping in a bag and throwing it in the girls toilets weekly.


We're All Going To Go On A Trip

Someone thought it would be a great idea to bring in magic mushrooms and hand them out to people in my year (13/14 years old at the time).

About 20 kids were off their faces during lunch-break and last lesson.

The kids that got high were suspended for a week and the dude who brought in the shrooms got expelled from the school.


Doing Something So Stupid Everybody Knows About

A guy ran into one of these thick glass doors.

The door had a big fat crack afterwards and had to be replaced. The guy was completely fine.


A True Bloodbowl

Not my story, but my brother's, Someone split their head open, like properly open, and while the ambulance was coming, the teachers just gave him a bowl to bleed into, by the time the ambulance got there the bowl was almost full and he looked like a dead man walking.


Just Like REAL Political Figures!

When the officers of the high school student council had meetings, they'd lock the door and break out the coke, right in the middle of the conference room but out of view from the window on the door (only way to see in). The conference room they used was in the main office just feet away from the principle, VP, and school resource officer.

A close second, one of the guys, who was one of the smartest in the school and had went through all the gifted programs in elementary and middle school, in high school became a major xtc trafficker. Not just reselling a few pills to students, but making deals with hundreds at a time. And he eventually got up to taking like 20 a day himself. Not just a rumor either, after he quit that after graduation, we became very close friends. It's wonderful that he completely turned things around too, now has a long career as a firefighter and a wonderful family.


A Bit Of Bad Luck.

Girl had a seizure at the top of a flight of concrete stairs. The janitor caught her but not before a couple of bounces. The whole right side of her body was paralyzed for life.

She was a good kid, her parents ditched out on her and she was living with her sickly grandma. Supposedly it was caused by stress but I have no idea if that's true.

Her whole life f-cked beyond recovery by a bit of bad luck.



German teacher on the verge of retirement was accused of trading good grades for a bj by a student that was at my school in the 80's. No one believed it because the man was the sweetest teacher anyone had ever had.

Then another student came forward with the same story, and then another, and another. Turns out this guy was getting blowies on the regular all through the 80's. All the girls were of age when this happened so by the time all this came to light there was very little the school could do, so the guy was just quietly pushed into retirement.


Nope. Wow.

When I was in 8th grade, a 4th grader and her older sister in high school were both shot and killed point blank by their father, who then killed himself. Their mom was so lost, and she still wears a pin with their faces on it every single day.

It was weird, for about a week the school was silent. Bullying just stopped all together. The lunch room was quiet all day. I still remember their mom and the 4th grader's best/only friend wailing at the funeral.


Wow, almost the exact same thing happened at my school when I was in sixth grade. There is a small woods in my neighborhood, the guy took his family there and shot them. I don't think he did anything to his wife but I do know he had a son and daughter, both younger than me. The youngest child was in my little brother's kindergarten class. After he killed them, he killed himself. Both kids went to our school, which didn't have a huge student body at the time, so a lot of people knew them at least in passing. They turned a couple of classrooms into "comfort rooms" for the next few weeks, with stuffed animals and counseling available and a table set up to make the mother cards and stuff. I don't know how she could ever get over something like that. My little brother was too young to understand, one day there was a girl in his class and the next she was gone and the whole culture of the school had changed.


I Take It Back. Wow.

Pregnant girl went missing. Her boyfriend friends and family of hers hand out flyers looking for any help finding her. Her boyfriend, who as I mentioned was handing out flyers with her friends and family, confessed to killing her and dumping her body in the garbage.


Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or "🤐" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk him about it.

People Reveal The Weirdest Thing About Themselves

Reddit user Isitjustmedownhere asked: 'Give an example; how weird are you really?'

Let's get one thing straight: no one is normal. We're all weird in our own ways, and that is actually normal.

Of course, that doesn't mean we don't all have that one strange trait or quirk that outweighs all the other weirdness we possess.

For me, it's the fact that I'm almost 30 years old, and I still have an imaginary friend. Her name is Sarah, she has red hair and green eyes, and I strongly believe that, since I lived in India when I created her and there were no actual people with red hair around, she was based on Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo.

I also didn't know the name Sarah when I created her, so that came later. I know she's not really there, hence the term 'imaginary friend,' but she's kind of always been around. We all have conversations in our heads; mine are with Sarah. She keeps me on task and efficient.

My mom thinks I'm crazy that I still have an imaginary friend, and writing about her like this makes me think I may actually be crazy, but I don't mind. As I said, we're all weird, and we all have that one trait that outweighs all the other weirdness.

Redditors know this all too well and are eager to share their weird traits.

It all started when Redditor Isitjustmedownhere asked:

"Give an example; how weird are you really?"

Can You See Why?

"I bought one of those super-powerful fans to dry a basement carpet. Afterwards, I realized that it can point straight up and that it would be amazing to use on myself post-shower. Now I squeegee my body with my hands, step out of the shower and get blasted by a wide jet of room-temp air. I barely use my towel at all. Wife thinks I'm weird."

– KingBooRadley


"In 1990 when I was 8 years old and bored on a field trip, I saw a black Oldsmobile Cutlass driving down the street on a hot day to where you could see that mirage like distortion from the heat on the road. I took a “snapshot” by blinking my eyes and told myself “I wonder how long I can remember this image” ….well."

– AquamarineCheetah

"Even before smartphones, I always take "snapshots" by blinking my eyes hoping I'll remember every detail so I can draw it when I get home. Unfortunately, I may have taken so much snapshots that I can no longer remember every detail I want to draw."

– Frostygrunt


"I pace around my house for hours listening to music imagining that I have done all the things I simply lack the brain capacity to do, or in some really bizarre scenarios, I can really get immersed in these imaginations sometimes I don't know if this is some form of schizophrenia or what."

– RandomSharinganUser

"I do the same exact thing, sometimes for hours. When I was young it would be a ridiculous amount of time and many years later it’s sort of trickled off into almost nothing (almost). It’s weird but I just thought it’s how my brain processes sh*t."

– Kolkeia

If Only

"Even as an adult I still think that if you are in a car that goes over a cliff; and right as you are about to hit the ground if you jump up you can avoid the damage and will land safely. I know I'm wrong. You shut up. I'm not crying."

– ShotCompetition2593

Pet Food

– Isitjustmedownhere

"When I was younger, one of my responsibilities was to feed the pet fish every day. Instead, I would hide under the futon in the spare bedroom and eat the fish food."

My Favorite Subject

"I'm autistic and have always had a thing for insects. My neurotypical best friend and I used to hang out at this local bar to talk to girls, back in the late 90s. One time he claimed that my tendency to circle conversations back to insects was hurting my game. The next time we went to that bar (with a few other friends), he turned and said sternly "No talking about bugs. Or space, or statistics or other bullsh*t but mainly no bugs." I felt like he was losing his mind over nothing."

"It was summer, the bar had its windows open. Our group hit it off with a group of young ladies, We were all chatting and having a good time. I was talking to one of these girls, my buddy was behind her facing away from me talking to a few other people."

"A cloudless sulphur flies in and lands on little thing that holds coasters."

"Cue Jordan Peele sweating gif."

"The girl notices my tension, and asks if I am looking at the leaf. "Actually, that's a lepidoptera called..." I looked at the back of my friend's head, he wasn't looking, "I mean a butterfly..." I poked it and it spread its wings the girl says "oh that's a BUG?!" and I still remember my friend turning around slowly to look at me with chastisement. The ONE thing he told me not to do."

"I was 21, and was completely not aware that I already had a rep for being an oddball. It got worse from there."

– Phormicidae

*Teeth Chatter*

"I bite ice cream sometimes."


"That's how I am with popsicles. My wife shudders every single time."


Never Speak Of This

Evened Up

"Whenever I say a word and feel like I used a half of my mouth more than the other half, I have to even it out by saying the word again using the other half of my mouth more. If I don't do it correctly, that can go on forever until I feel it's ok."

"I do it silently so I don't creep people out."

– LesPaltaX

"That sounds like a symptom of OCD (I have it myself). Some people with OCD feel like certain actions have to be balanced (like counting or making sure physical movements are even). You should find a therapist who specializes in OCD, because they can help you."

– MoonlightKayla

I totally have the same need for things to be balanced! Guess I'm weird and a little OCD!

Experiencing death is a fascinating and frightening idea.

Who doesn't want to know what is waiting for us on the other side?

But so many of us want to know and then come back and live a little longer.

It would be so great to be sure there is something else.

But the whole dying part is not that great, so we'll have to rely on other people's accounts.

Redditor AlaskaStiletto wanted to hear from everyone who has returned to life, so they asked:

"Redditors who have 'died' and come back to life, what did you see?"


Happy Good Vibes GIF by Major League SoccerGiphy

"My dad's heart stopped when he had a heart attack and he had to be brought back to life. He kept the paper copy of the heart monitor which shows he flatlined. He said he felt an overwhelming sensation of peace, like nothing he had felt before."



"I had surgical complications in 2010 that caused a great deal of blood loss. As a result, I had extremely low blood pressure and could barely stay awake. I remember feeling like I was surrounded by loved ones who had passed. They were in a circle around me and I knew they were there to guide me onwards. I told them I was not ready to go because my kids needed me and I came back."

"My nurse later said she was afraid she’d find me dead every time she came into the room."

"It took months, and blood transfusions, but I recovered."


Take Me Back

"Overwhelming peace and happiness. A bright airy and floating feeling. I live a very stressful life. Imagine finding out the person you have had a crush on reveals they have the same feelings for you and then you win the lotto later that day - that was the feeling I had."

"I never feared death afterward and am relieved when I hear of people dying after suffering from an illness."



The Light Minnie GIF by (G)I-DLEGiphy

"I had a heart surgery with near-death experience, for me at least (well the possibility that those effects are caused by morphine is also there) I just saw black and nothing else but it was warm and I had such inner peace, its weird as I sometimes still think about it and wish this feeling of being so light and free again."


This is why I hate surgery.

You just never know.



"More of a near-death experience. I was electrocuted. I felt like I was in a deep hole looking straight up in the sky. My life flashed before me. Felt sad for my family, but I had a deep sense of peace."



"Nursing in the ICU, we’ve had people try to die on us many times during the years, some successfully. One guy stood out to me. His heart stopped. We called a code, are working on him, and suddenly he comes to. We hadn’t vented him yet, so he was able to talk, and he started screaming, 'Don’t let them take me, don’t let them take me, they are coming,' he was scared and yelling."

"Then he yelled a little more, as we tried to calm him down, he screamed, 'No, No,' and gestured towards the end of the bed, and died again. We didn’t get him back. It was seriously creepy. We called his son to tell him the news, and the son said basically, 'Good, he was an SOB.'”



"My sister died and said it was extremely peaceful. She said it was very loud like a train station and lots of talking and she was stuck in this area that was like a curtain with lots of beautiful colors (colors that you don’t see in real life according to her) a man told her 'He was sorry, but she had to go back as it wasn’t her time.'"


"I had a really similar experience except I was in an endless garden with flowers that were colors I had never seen before. It was quiet and peaceful and a woman in a dress looked at me, shook her head, and just said 'Not yet.' As I was coming back, it was extremely loud, like everyone in the world was trying to talk all at once. It was all very disorienting but it changed my perspective on life!"


The Fog

"I was in a gray fog with a girl who looked a lot like a young version of my grandmother (who was still alive) but dressed like a pioneer in the 1800s she didn't say anything but kept pulling me towards an opening in the wall. I kept refusing to go because I was so tired."

"I finally got tired of her nagging and went and that's when I came to. I had bled out during a c-section and my heart could not beat without blood. They had to deliver the baby and sew up the bleeders. refill me with blood before they could restart my heart so, like, at least 12 minutes gone."


Through the Walls

"My spouse was dead for a couple of minutes one miserable night. She maintains that she saw nothing, but only heard people talking about her like through a wall. The only thing she remembers for absolute certain was begging an ER nurse that she didn't want to die."

"She's quite alive and well today."


Well let's all be happy to be alive.

It seems to be all we have.

Man's waist line
Santhosh Vaithiyanathan/Unsplash

Trying to lose weight is a struggle understood by many people regardless of size.

The goal of reaching a healthy weight may seem unattainable, but with diet and exercise, it can pay off through persistence and discipline.

Seeing the pounds gradually drop off can also be a great motivator and incentivize people to stay the course.

Those who've achieved their respective weight goals shared their experiences when Redditor apprenti8455 asked:

"People who lost a lot of weight, what surprises you the most now?"

Redditors didn't see these coming.

Shiver Me Timbers

"I’m always cold now!"

– Telrom_1

"I had a coworker lose over 130 pounds five or six years ago. I’ve never seen him without a jacket on since."

– r7ndom

"140 lbs lost here starting just before COVID, I feel like that little old lady that's always cold, damn this top comment was on point lmao."

– mr_remy

Drawing Concern

"I lost 100 pounds over a year and a half but since I’m old(70’s) it seems few people comment on it because (I think) they think I’m wasting away from some terminal illness."

– dee-fondy

"Congrats on the weight loss! It’s honestly a real accomplishment 🙂"

"Working in oncology, I can never comment on someone’s weight loss unless I specifically know it was on purpose, regardless of their age. I think it kind of ruffles feathers at times, but like I don’t want to congratulate someone for having cancer or something. It’s a weird place to be in."

– LizardofDeath

Unleashing Insults

"I remember when I lost the first big chunk of weight (around 50 lbs) it was like it gave some people license to talk sh*t about the 'old' me. Old coworkers, friends, made a lot of not just negative, but harsh comments about what I used to look like. One person I met after the big loss saw a picture of me prior and said, 'Wow, we wouldn’t even be friends!'”

"It wasn’t extremely common, but I was a little alarmed by some of the attention. My weight has been up and down since then, but every time I gain a little it gets me a little down thinking about those things people said."

– alanamablamaspama

Not Everything Goes After Losing Weight

"The loose skin is a bit unexpected."

– KeltarCentauri

"I haven’t experienced it myself, but surgery to remove skin takes a long time to recover. Longer than bariatric surgery and usually isn’t covered by insurance unless you have both."

– KatMagic1977

"It definitely does take a long time to recover. My Dad dropped a little over 200 pounds a few years back and decided to go through with skin removal surgery to deal with the excess. His procedure was extensive, as in he had skin taken from just about every part of his body excluding his head, and he went through hell for weeks in recovery, and he was bedridden for a lot of it."

– Jaew96

These Redditors shared their pleasantly surprising experiences.


"I can buy clothes in any store I want."

– WaySavvyD

"When I lost weight I was dying to go find cute, smaller clothes and I really struggled. As someone who had always been restricted to one or two stores that catered to plus-sized clothing, a full mall of shops with items in my size was daunting. Too many options and not enough knowledge of brands that were good vs cheap. I usually went home pretty frustrated."

– ganache98012

No More Symptoms

"Lost about 80 pounds in the past year and a half, biggest thing that I’ve noticed that I haven’t seen mentioned on here yet is my acid reflux and heartburn are basically gone. I used to be popping tums every couple hours and now they just sit in the medicine cabinet collecting dust."

– colleennicole93

Expanding Capabilities

"I'm all for not judging people by their appearance and I recognise that there are unhealthy, unachievable beauty standards, but one thing that is undeniable is that I can just do stuff now. Just stamina and flexibility alone are worth it, appearance is tertiary at best."

– Ramblonius

People Change Their Tune

"How much nicer people are to you."

"My feet weren't 'wide' they were 'fat.'"

– LiZZygsu

"Have to agree. Lost 220 lbs, people make eye contact and hold open doors and stuff"

"And on the foot thing, I also lost a full shoe size numerically and also wear regular width now 😅"

– awholedamngarden

It's gonna take some getting used to.

Bones Everywhere

"Having bones. Collarbones, wrist bones, knee bones, hip bones, ribs. I have so many bones sticking out everywhere and it’s weird as hell."

– Princess-Pancake-97

"I noticed the shadow of my ribs the other day and it threw me, there’s a whole skeleton in here."

– bekastrange

Knee Pillow

"Right?! And they’re so … pointy! Now I get why people sleep with pillows between their legs - the knee bones laying on top of each other (side sleeper here) is weird and jarring."

– snic2030

"I lost only 40 pounds within the last year or so. I’m struggling to relate to most of these comments as I feel like I just 'slimmed down' rather than dropped a ton. But wow, the pillow between the knees at night. YES! I can relate to this. I think a lot of my weight was in my thighs. I never needed to do this up until recently."

– Strongbad23

More Mobility

"I’ve lost 100 lbs since 2020. It’s a collection of little things that surprise me. For at least 10 years I couldn’t put on socks, or tie my shoes. I couldn’t bend over and pick something up. I couldn’t climb a ladder to fix something. Simple things like that I can do now that fascinate me."

"Edit: Some additional little things are sitting in a chair with arms, sitting in a booth in a restaurant, being able to shop in a normal store AND not needing to buy the biggest size there, being able to easily wipe my butt, and looking down and being able to see my penis."

– dma1965

People making significant changes, whether for mental or physical health, can surely find a newfound perspective on life.

But they can also discover different issues they never saw coming.

That being said, overcoming any challenge in life is laudable, especially if it leads to gaining confidence and ditching insecurities.
