3: Go buy my teacher some Tobasco and cigarettes from “Tesco”.

Wear a dress made out of a bin liner and catwalk in it.

Also, I was wearing a combover wig.

One time I had to watch some messed up movie about atoms which were all getting ready for a party. The main character(can atoms be characters?) which was fluorine or something, was trying to get a date for the party that she could borrow an electron from, so she took out an ad in the paper. At the party all the atoms were dancing and stuff, and many other things happened which I have fortunately blocked out of my memory, but it was pretty strange. And we had to learn from this movie and answer questions.

Oh and the noble gases wore crowns and lived in a castle.

What’s the weirdest thing you guys ever had to do in school?
Wow, I saw exactly the same movie, that was wierd. I saw a wierder one where the atoms played out a James Bond film.

Had to go up to two people (guy and girl), show them a card with the words, “I think sex is…” and ask for the first word they thought of. The whole experience was pretty funny 'cos some of the people I went up to tried to flee.

Type all papers double spaced.

Then there was the guy who brought a real M1 Garand rifle to school as a part of his Halloween costume… and no one noticed. I miss the 1980s.

Not really weird, but I had to dissect a frog last year for Biology (freshmen class), and it was incredibly gross.
The three days or so that we had to do it, I almost puked. It took a week for me to get that smell out of my mind.
Grooosss.

Nothing super WEIRD per se comes to mind, BUT i do have a funny anecdote from college…

While you can never take art as a major and be free of the “Art School Confidential” archetypes (speaking from the comic, I can't really remember the movie too well)– Being primarily a design student, the majority of my classes didn't really get quite that demographic.

But… BUT…. I was required to take a beginning sculpture class. Which I arrived at with both equal parts dread (I'm not much for sculpture), and ambition (“I'm gonna BUILD something!”). As it would turn out, this class (probably as being a requisite undergrad class for those even THINKING about taking an art major) was FILLED with… well I think the PC term would be “Artsy Fartsy Whack Jobs” (in fact, the actual teacher described himself using a much harsher term). The teacher himself, while a good guy, was not staff, but a professional fine artist who liked to teach one class at a different school whenever he had the opportunity. I think the whole class to him was an art experiment in and of itself

It was harsh. Very conceptual. Not built for someone more technically minded like me. If the class was based/graded on skill achievements, I probably would have been fine. I don't really think I would have had a problem tackling that. But the grades were pretty much based on concept, and nothing else. Which translates into, how much BS can you say about your piece. I may be an artist, but I'm not a BS artist, so I struggled to get ahead in that class and mostly landed B's and (more often) C's in that class. Some A projects from students included:

A pig made out of raw pork (bought and assembled on the day of the critique after weeks of “work time”).

Various performance art (uh… sculpture?).

A hut made out of sticks with a TV and a playstation in it (also assembled the day of the crit).

A rabbit (a REAL dead rabbit) being gored by a vacuum cleaner (actually… it was kinda cool).

A papermache-esqe torso made of sausage casings (read: intestines…. also actually cool. Smelled horrid, though)

Various projects involving make shift rooms and TV. Your typical “installation.”

Okay… a lot of this stuff had genuine merit. There were probably loads of crazier ones that I can't even remember. But anyway, I had a hard time trying to keep up and compete with this stuff on a conceptual level (I won't even go into the crap I made). I would work really hard (we had weeks to put these things together– there was actually supposed to be some construction learning going on, you know), and get a C, where someone else could throw something together that day and get an A. IT was very frustrating.

At the end. I thought. This class is such a joke. Why am I busting my ass. I could throw stuff in a trash bag and get a better grade.

So that's what I did for my final project. I bought two of the the cheesiest front lawn knick nacks I could find at Ross, stuck a garbage bag over them, stuck them in front of the building where my class was with a sign that said, “FREE, PLEASE TAKE.” That was it. That's all I did.

Well, wouldn't you know, my teacher practically had tears of joy! I don't even think I gave too huge of an explanation (I can't even remember what it was). He went on and one about how “smart” and brilliant my “sculpture” was, and how big of an improvement I had made. I mean… he was gushing. The whole class concurred. I got an A+ on the project (helped even out some of the worse grades).

After class, another student walked up to me. His project was a suitcase with a nail sticking out from the inside. He had also gotten a lot of positive feedback in his crit. He says to me, “I know what you're project is REALLY about.” I said, “Oh yeah?” He says, “Yeah. Mine too. What a joke.”

Write about WHY a movie was so good and not if I enjoyed it or not…or agreed with it…odd…


I thought the weirdest thing in school for people to do were carry around an egg, in a basket, with a marked dot on it…they had to do it for “child care education”. The marked dot would wash off if it was hardboiled. If the egg cracked or anything, they owed a five page single spaced, with references, essay on child abuse…even if they weren't the reason the egg broke or cracked…

Well, I was feeling awnry one day and “kidnapped” one of the eggs from a girl I knew. Over two days I'd put Polaroid images in her locker of the egg tied up, flour and a pan, then muffins.

I gave her the egg back and told her teacher I was the one responsible. I ended up having to write a paper for her, but it was well worth it.

While reading “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” (by Maya Angelou) we had the option of earning extra credit if we went 24 hours without speaking. It was really difficult and made for an entirely awkward day, but I was the only one to pull it off. The book was awful, by the way. Sorry, girls.

One time I was given the task of opening up a vacuum-sealed baby shark for biology class so we could dissect it. It turns out it was pickled in some kind of juice and rotten inside. We had to evacuate the northern half of the school.

Then towards the end of the video, the woman gives birth and you can actually SEE the baby pushing out of her vagina…

This was for law class.

This cracked me up so much. Same with Ochitsukanai's story about the play.

I had to walk into the Lincoln tomb (his burial place in Illinois not the memorial in DC) and make a drawing. Very morbid.

DUDE I WATCHED THAT TOO!

the weirdest thing was having to make protest signs and stuff for my religion teacher who then went out and protested infront of the school with some anti abortion people. he gave us extra credit to make signs that said “WHY MOM?” n' stuff like that. Then we watched a video of him fighting with a cop and getting arrested infront of a doctors home in like 1990 or something like that. (The doctor had done alot of abortions.) He had really weird hair. You know that music producer phil spector? his hair was like that. then he showed us videos of streakers he took in the 60s n' shit like that.

creepy teacher is creepy

Well, I can't think of anything that strange I had to do for school…
Maybe doing book reports for math this year? But that is really cool. We get to choose any book as long as it relates to math in some way. I did some stuff about the Fibonacci sequence in music theory last quarter.

My old English teacher assigned us books like Hitchhikers guide, Animal Farm and Lord of the Rings.

I liked her.
Those were my two cents.

Not really weird, but it was unsettling. I had two different papers due around the same time:

My Kinesiology teacher wanted me to observe about twenty different people walking. They had to be total strangers

My Social Psychology teacher wanted me to observe a group of strangers talking.

All in all I felt pretty exposed while doing this. I used my laptop since I can't write fast enough for observations.

I had a high school teacher that made us cosplay a few times. I dressed up like Gollum and Guenever.

In Calculus during high school, we wanted to watch movies after the tests were over. But we had to justify watching them. So we had to think of movies with numbers in them. Like: 51 First Dates and X-men 2. We even got School of Rock in on a technicality. (Music is just math with sounds)

I think that is about it. Not much weird stuff at my schools…work…is a different story.

i had to memorize 18 lines of chaucer's the canteburry tales…….in old english.

whan that aprille of his shoures soute, the drought of marche had perced to the route and bathed every vine in switch liquour, of which vertu engendered is the flour. whan sephareus ache with his sweete breathe, and inspired hot in every holt and something or other…..

i know most of that isnt spelt right, i spelt it phonetically, and some of it's correct.

ianno, i find it kinda wierd that after 12 years of teaching english, the second largest grade of the year is memorizing a practically foriegn language.

It seems like that, but probably about 75% to 80% of your normal every day speech is Old English anyway. ;)
So studies have shown…

The weirdest thing… I can't think. i remember when we had to watch a video of a woman giving birth though. We all thought it was revolting. One of my friends feinted; his big fat pimple-covered head turned bright red and he just fell of the desk and crashed onto the floor. It was hilarious! :)

We teased him unmercifully afterwards. He claimed he was sick, but we laughed at him for feinting at the sight of the baby coming out of the…
But to tell the truth, I thought at the time it was too nasty to watch anyway so I demurely averted my gaze. :P
