It actually is in my Common room, and the school library.

I have it on the wall of my bedroom. I'm known as the type of person who would write it on the ceiling, so its fun tricking people like that.

teacher lights bunsen burner
class is amazed
teacher remembers that we didn't have open flames in middle school

also, in my friends DV class, someone stole a video camera. while he was in line for his backpack to be searched,
"I stole it! *pulls out banana* wait, I put it back. never mind!"

That was also the day he brought a bunch of transformers, some claymation stuff and some other stuff. The teachers response was funny

Our high school had one unique specimen of a student. His honorary nickname that he accepted wholeheartedly was "Big Hit." How he got this nickname is not well-suited to this thread.

Anyways, he is well-known for saying some great gems:

"My hands are like unicorns: sometimes they are there, sometimes they aren't."

In Advanced Chem he gets up from his desk during a slow part of class and starts to what looked like rowing with an invisible oar. Half-laughing our teacher asked Big Hit what he was doing. He replied "I'm rowing around the room." He kept doing this for another 5 minutes and proceeded to sit down and resume classwork.

I've never quite understood him.

Nicotine is on the periodic table, though. NiCoTiNe. Nickel, Cobalt, Titanium, Neon.

Sorry, I like spelling words on the periodic table. Like Unicorn, Uranium, nickle, cobalt, radon. =D

"So, uh, how do you enter a matrix in MATLAB?" -The night before a relatively large fluids homework was due.

If you've never used MATLAB, it's essentially a high level programming language that is very matrix-centric. Entering a matrix in MATLAB is literally the first thing you learn.

In high school, about an hour after school in the halls (so almost empty).

Me: "Does anyone ever fall for distractions like 'Look over there! A distraction!'?"
Friend: (just mocking cause I'm in math) "Oh no! Someone is dividing by 0! Run!"
Random girl walking by: "Oh me yarm WHERE!!??"

Still can't believe that happened haha. Her reaction was so genuine

Me: -Gets test back and saw that I got a 91%- "HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?!"

What can I say? It's not my fault Calc is at eight in the morning. Besides, it was a Monday.

My Physics Teacher, Paraphrased wrote:Yeah, so I really recommend the Princeton Review AP Physics book. I mean, it's not the bible, but it's very good.

Unlike the Bible, it's true.

He is openly Atheist, and very trusting that we'll keep our mouths shut. Also, he knows we know he's not serious, and pretty much the entire class is agnostic or atheist, anyways. But yeah, it was hilarious.

My school has a bash.org-style page here, but here are some highlights:

// In AP Physics, while Raamin and Dr. Dell were arguing about something...
Dr. Dell: I bet mine is longer than yours
// He starts to unbuckle his belt
Students: !!!!!!!
Dr. Dell: Mine is 44 inches.
// He pulls out his belt and shows everyone

Spoiler:
// In physics class
Lawrence: Why do we use epsilon? K is so much better!
Dr. Dell: Take it back! Repeat after me: "epsilon naught is good, K is bad!"
Lawrence: No!
Dr. Dell: *Gets out some drill thing* I got this from Japan. It's a disciplinary device. You can't get it here 'cause it's illegal. *Puts it against a piece of paper, the paper lights on fire.*
Dr. Dell: SAY IT!! EPSILON NAUGHT IS GOOD!! K IS BAD!!


// From the late 90s, but classic nevertheless...
Mr. McFaden: *walking through a chattering class, very quietly* Sex.
Class: *keeps talking, does not notice*
Mr. McFaden: *still very quietly* Extra credit.
Class: *perks up* Did you say extra credit? What?
Mr. McFaden: From a biological standpoint, that's just WRONG.


// During AP Physics lecture
Students: What's that piece of rope dangling from the ceiling?
Dr. Dell: It's a noose.
Students: What's it for?
Dr. Dell: Actually, it's really cool, but I can only show you once.


Student: Dr. Glazer--
Dr. Glazer: I lost twenty dollars and my self respect!

We have seen that one in this thread before. Same school?

Also, your linky leads to a picture, not to a "bash.org-style page".

While arguing about whether statistics was good or not wrote:Friend: But statistics is actually easy and useful.
Me: Exactly, and that's why it shouldn't count as math!


I think my friend is going to be a bio major...

Also, another friend and I spent a while arguing about the Scrabble dictionary. She was trying to say it was wrong because it had words in it that she didn't think counted as being in the English language.

English Professor: How do you define a man?
Me: Someone who can kill a bear with his bare hands. Pun intended.

Same professor: A lot of the metal guys are seen as quite masculine, but Rob Halford of the band Judas Priest is actually a homosexual.
Me: He's so manly he is only attracted to other men.

I was mostly making fun at the discussion we were having because masculinity could mean so many things to so many people that it is ultimately pointless, which I think the professor caught onto pretty quickly.

My High school calc class consists entirely of four guys, three of which have known each other quite closely since 6th grade. Memes are abound.

Reviewing homework one day...
J: Yeah, I didn't get that derivative because... I just got scared and ran.
Me: I actually got that one. All you have to do is calm down and apply the chain rule.
G: Note the first part of that order.

"Dude, just calm down and apply the chain rule." is now a meme between us. :D

After an exceedingly frustrating lesson...
*G grimaces, balls up his fists, and begins pounding on his textbook.* [This kind of outburst is not exactly unusual between the four of us]
*Everyone turns their heads toward him nonchalantly*
G:*moans* It can hurt me, but I can't hurt it !
