Karen And Karen Jr. Try To Cheat School System, Get Outed

Revenge is most certainly sweet, and best served by FERPA. Karen and Karen Jr. thought that they were so sly. The mother and daughter team had worked out a system where Karen (the teacher) would pull the necessary strings to get Karen Jr. (her daughter) all the accommodations one could need to ace a test without any effort at all. Of course, cheaters never win, and someone always finds out in the end. The Karens ultimately had to pay the price for all their BS.

This aunt sounds like an absolute nightmare. She proceeded to move in with some family, and mooch off them to such an extent, while being a genuinely toxic disturbance, that the kid was left with no other choice but to take revenge.

Kid Can't Understand Life Before Emails Were Around

It's quick little exchanges like this that spotlight just how much things have changed. Yes, in those olden days before emails were around people were still able to get stuff done. Might've taken a little extra exertion, but the world still kept spinning madly on. Anyone who has ever had a conversation with someone in a younger generation has likely had that, "dang I'm getting old" moment.

Twitter Thread: Student Finds Life Changing Teacher On Twitter

Positive teachers that genuinely care about the well being of their students, as well as cultivating in them a legitimate passion for learning, are some of the most cherished human beings on the planet. As can be expected, a fair number of kids resist the idea of school, hitting the books, and keeping up with all that homework. Put the right teacher in front of them that can get them excited about the whole academic process, and you might actually end up with more stories like this wholesome gem from Raifa Rafiq.

Professor Turns Into Total Nightmare, Dean Saves The Day

We're talking Professor Umbridge from Harry Potter levels of toxic from this teacher, folks. Yes, by the sound of it this teacher was a disaster from the start. Fortunately, one particular student ran the issue back to the dean of the school, who intervened after assuring the student that they wouldn't have to worry about passing the class. With that kind of free (and totally warranted) pass, the pressure completely dissipated. They actually managed to have some fun with the whole situation. The lesson that the teacher hopefully learned would be to teach the actual material that the students are paying thousands of dollars to learn.

Hugh Jackman has quite the memory on him. He manages to recognize an old student in the middle of an interview, and reference old details about the student. Seems like Jackman is a personable guy with a nice lot of humility on him.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Eye-opening twitter thread about professor doing a class on fish fraud | Dr.Jen M @AwesomeBioTA Josue sequenced some red snapper put money on being tilapia and right. Someone owes 5. His lab partner, Juanni, sequenced Atlantic Salmon. Comes back as Rainbow trout. Unsurprising. Not same species AT ALL, but unsurprising.

trending news homeschooled indian teenager MIT scholarship malvika joshi

The notable accomplishments of seventeen-year-old Malvika Raj Joshi didn't end when she got a scholarship to MIT after having left school to be homeschooled, or "unschooled" as it's referred to in India. After years of hard work while homeschooling, she was noticed by MIT for having won three different metals (two silver and a bronze) in a Programming Oympiad contest against traditionally-schooled competitors.

However, if you read the coverage of her scholarship win as written by Indian newspaper "The Indian Express," her greater accomplishment is over the sexism and traditional social mores that plague that area.



So we wish Ms. Joshi good luck on her computer science studies at MIT, and GREATER luck fighting that uphill battle against the establishment.



Get yours, girl.

Donald Trump's political rally in Chicago got shut down because of people protesting him. His son, Donald Trump Jr. responded with a claim that the protestors didn't know why they were even protesting.  John Legend had a pretty simple answer for him. 

Another Twitter user, notably with the name "RedKneckHillBilly", claimed John Legend said that because he just had no education and in this case, he might be right...


via @DanielT03571138

Because both Trumps went to the University of Pennsylvania, just like John Legend, and look where that got them.
