Maybe the paper was grammatically flawless but the arguments were poor or unsoundly based? The teacher's still a fart-nugget, but at least this would make more sense than the teacher having an evil twin.

#84, no. That's not how bipolar disorder works. It's not a "one day happy, next day sad" thing or a "I can't make up my mind" thing. It's a disorder that causes your emotions to change quickly, without your control. It's also a serious disorder and shouldn't be used the way you're using it.
