Teachers' "That's Amazing But Please Stop" Stories

Students are curious and motivated individuals especially when it comes to breaking the rules or mocking each other. They'll go to impressive lengths in order to tastefully vandalize restrooms or expertly cheat the system. You can't tell them it's the right thing to do, but it's at least impressive. To give the kids some credit, here's a Tumblr thread on a teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment.

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.

30 Expelled Students Share What Got Them Kicked Out of School

Consider this a crash course for those out there inclined towards functional (or not at all...) degeneracy. Can't help but ponder how many college kids, once on track for higher learning, degrees, etc, found themselves hopelessly expelled post-Spring Break. Damn, did we have a lot of ridiculous, booze-soaked, maddening kind of material to work with this year! Anyways, read up on the idiots of the world that just weren't clever/smart enough to pull off lives outside the bounds of rule-abiding rationality.

Millennials Aren't The Worst Generation When Compared To Historical Disciplinary Records, Says This Twitter Thread

It's a tradition that the older generations have to hate on the younger generations for absolutely any reason they can think of. Doesn't matter what for, because it was just "better back in the day," in their logic. 

Self-described "recovering academic" Jenny Bann pulled up some hilariously enlightening historical records of the behavioral problems exhibited by 18th century male students in Scotland. 

Let's just say they're...less than wholesome and make Millennials look angelic in comparison.

An entire class of high school students in China was photographed recently while studying for the Gaokao -- China's National College Entrance Exam with life-and-death implications -- while IV drips helpfully delivered "amino acid" concoctions to keep them cramming late into the night.

The photos are making the rounds online, but while the Western world reacts with dismay, Sino Weibo commenter 天高任鸿飞 isn't fazed:"We all experienced this. We can only blame ourselves for lack of physical exercises."
