As a student, it's hard to keep up with everything that's going on at school. Sometimes, you get a test only to realize you have no clue what the answers are to the questions. So what do you do? Well these teachers share the funniest answers students have given to a question on a test.



1/21. A third grader's homework was to define vocabulary words, and one of them was "parent."

His definition: "Adults who own you."

3/21. I used to mark chemistry papers for a university. There was a question - the content I can't recall - but an essay style answer was required. Anyway this one student had a complete mind blank and instead wrote this elaborate story about a lonely dragon who couldn't make friends. So lots of different animals would take pity on him and try to be his friend but in his excitement he would set them on fire.

To this day I wonder if the dragon ever made any friends without accidentally killing them, poor guy.

4/21. From my time as an English teacher in Japan is both funny and sad.

Question: Please tell us about your future dreams.

Answer: I want to be a nurse. Nurse can study math. But I can't study math. I don't like math. So I can't be a nurse. And I don't have a dream now.

5/21. Q: Why did Mao and his communists march through the snowy mountains?

It smoothens the sh*t.

7/21. I remember that there was once in our Chinese character test, we had to figure out what meant. It's a proverb and roughly means 'A school's dog will be able to read and write in 3 years' (you get affected by what you're with) but a kid wrote "If you can't figure it out in 3 years, you're stupider than a dog."

8/21. I was taking my driver's test, this had been written under a question:

Q: "How much is the fine for fleeing an officer?"

A: Nothing, if you're fast.

9/21. A student wrote an advertisement for the new season of 24 in the top corner of the paper. Strange but it did remind me to watch it.

10/21. Not a teacher but as a secondary school student I completely forgot what metallic bonding was in my chemistry exam (the real one, not the mock).

So, in the 10 minutes I had left over at the end, after I'd finished all the other questions, I drew a diagram of an iron atom and a magnesium atom with speech bubbles depicting their conversation. Things like "hi there, how's your day been?" and similarly friendly things.

At the bottom, I wrote a caption saying:

As you can see, these metallic atoms are bonding. They will be friends in no time.

11/21. I had my students in U.S. History create advertisements to convince people to move onto the Great Plains. One student simply drew a donkey and wrote "bring that a** here boy!"

12/21. In French GSCE speaking exam :

She was meant to say : J'ai voyag en avion (I travelled on a plane).

She said : J'ai viol en avion. (I raped on a plane).

Oh how we laughed. She didn't have a clue what she said though.

13/21. This was an answer from one of my classmates. When it was marked wrong, we complained until he changed her grade.

Q: Can you explain the effects of the German attack on the Netherlands in 1940?

A: No.

14/21. Had a student turn in some code with profanity in the comments. In their defence, R deserves that kind of response.

I told them officially I have to give them a talk about professionalism, and unofficially my thesis has far worse in it.

15/21. In a calculus course:

Q: Define Simpson's Rule

A: Drew a picture of Bart Simpson saying "Don't have a cow, man!"

16/21. List 3 different gasses:

Air

Farts

Gravity

Mattelaide

17/21. I had my students do a writing assignment where the point was to write a story with the group, but each student could only write one sentence before passing to the next student to continue with the next sentence.

Student 1 wrote: Once upon a time there were four friends who went on a vacation.

Student 2: They decided to go to a cabin in the woods.

Student 3: This story is stupid.

Student 4: It gets better when they get to the cabin.

18/21. On a thermodynamics test, the students had to define "adiabatic." One student answered "someone who needs insulin." I think I gave them half credit.

19/21. If a test in our country is failed by more than 70% of the class it has to be repeated. Your grade will be the better of either the repeated or the original test. This kid had aced the first one and couldn't improve. Instead of doing his math he wrote a recipe for cheesecake. And that was surprisingly good.

20/21. A student wrote, "I don't know, I'm sorry, I didn't study, dishonor on my family and my cow." She drew the saddest cow on the bottom of the page. Glad she's been watching Mulan.

21/21. I asked students what data structure would be appropriate for applying Dijkstra's algorithm and this moron put down a binary search tree instead of a queue! Haha, what a goofball!

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
