If it had gotten better after the cutoff point, the original guy probably wouldn't have posted it at all.

I found the youtube the original video came from, the comments are full of people screaming “omg why!” and “Darwin award winner incoming” while the guy who made it nonchalantly replies that it’s no big deal, and that it’s only around 400 lbs required to compress the spring 1.5inches, so not to worry (he should worry).

My favorite comment, “If you’re right handed, use your left hand!”

A professor hid a cash prize on campus and all students had to do was read the syllabus | WKRC

Five days left and the system finally collapsed : Teachers

Quote:
I teach in a 1,500 student 6-8 middle school in the ‘fine arts’ department, I’m also department chair. Many of my colleagues and admins believe I have an easy go of it because I’m not in a core classroom. As a result I get dumped on because the education I provide to my students is deemed less than or not important. So when a teacher in my department stopped showing up I was volun-told that all of their classes were now mine.

Keep in mind as a fine arts teacher I already have large classes (largest this year was over 50) and now in some cases I was dealing with upwards of 75 students per period.

My students stopped learning immediately because it was impossible to teach a lesson to my class while the ‘invaders’ were screaming, cursing, throwing things, punching each other, making TikTok’s, etc.

I haven’t taught my subject now for over 2 months, I became a literal babysitter after 8 years of working my ass off. I knew a week into this procession into hell that I was done and began encouraging others in my department to start looking for a way out because “it will get worse…”

Yesterday the system finally broke.

As soon as I entered the building I could tell something was wrong, admins had panic in their eyes furiously switching channels on their walkie talkies and pointing in all directions trying to disperse groups of ‘children’ (some of which are 14 years old in 6th grade).

I tracked down a skill specialist and asked what was going on….

“There are 28 teachers avricksbfhdk….” (Garbled under their mask)

I replied “28 teachers out?! That’s a new record!”

They replied “No no no 28 teachers total!”

When we opened the school there was a staff of approx. 100, 75 of which were classroom teachers we were down to near 25% staff (not including all the paras, cafeteria staff and custodians that quit long ago) and guess what…. We had MORE kids in the building than ever because multiple students had just finished a ‘bit’ at the alternative campus and were back in our general population!

The only answer was to lock down the building and keep all students in one class for the entire day it was absolute torture and every adult I spoke with agreed there was no way they were dealing with this bs again next week. I can’t wait to see how the district will react when no one comes to work on Monday.

Happy finals week everyone!

That has a really weird tone, but maybe I just don't know how schools work these days. Why does a middle school have a "department chair"? Why is 'children' in quotes? Why does this teacher use the term 'general population' which I've only ever heard used in regards to incarcerated people? Admittedly I don't spend much (any) time reading teacher reddit but that all sounds very strange to me.

This bit I assume was saying they're supposed to be 'children' but they're actually monsters. Demons.
