Today, while teaching my high school class about astronomy, I showed them a picture of earth from space. One girl raised her hand, and asked me what the "white things" were. In other words, clouds. FML

wtf? I wrote a comment, and it puts a "."?

How is this really an fml?

A high school student not knowing what that thing is called? That's why

Why didn't you say that it was toiletpaper?? Hehe

Why didn't the teacher just tell her it was clouds? Dumbass....

Why are you assuming he or she didn't?

Well, you're a teacher. It's your job to tell them what the "white things" are.

"My high school class" implies that this person *is* the teacher and is forced to deal with a student this … brilliant at the high school level.

at least she didn't ask what the "blue things" were.

Some chick from my high school days asked our teacher why people have gone to the moon but not the sun. My teacher answered, "Because the sun is too hot and they would burn up." The chick replied, "So why not go at night?" It was then that I realised just how screwed my generation is.

Retardation man has struck again, hide yo kids, hide yo wife, and hide yo husband, cuz they be ... Fuck it, if someone can continue that song, you get a cat.

Should've said it was because the Sun jizzed on mother Earth.

Hey there was a chic in my freshman class that asked "do humans reproduce?" now that is pure retardedness

Oh and it was the same chick who asked, "How do you spell HIV?" I wanted to stab my ears with a fork.

BellaBelle: They are old jokes!

I honestly think this girl was serious though. She was constantly asking these types of questions.

It's not your fault OP.... you can probably blame the parents

We all have dumb our moments.

BellaBelle: I mean, you're stealing jokes and pretending they actually happened to you. While you're lying. I'm sorry.

They are the opposite sides of clouds.

No silly. It's heaven. That's Jesus chillin over there.

Haha everyone has dumb moments. I remember the funniest thing my friend asked me one day if we won the revolutionary war!!! And we were in 10th grade, I'm like do we have British accents?

I fear for the future of our world. There is a totally new breed of dumbasses.

These comments are the exact reasons that I hated asking questions in school!! But these comments are funny too!!

23 that is awesome. I bet that girl graduated valedictorian at your school and went on to succeed from college suma cum lade. Brilliant.

Back to the kitchen --->

Back to the kitchen -->

our youth are idiots and there is no hope for the future of our country

One girl in my class, when the teacher said that semen contains sugars, shouted out,"no it doesn't, it tastes like shit

Also, my cousin, when he was a senior, he was learning about watergate. When he heard that nixon bugged the democrats headquarters, he asked how they got rid of them: if they called an exterminator.

at least someone never asked you the difference between male and female uterus's! yeaaah true story! beat that bitches...

she must be one of those hot girls you sleep with but never try and hold a convo with

Was she blonde(sarcastic tons based from the stereotype blondes are stupid)? Seriously though, that is quite dumb...

Explaining that you're being sarcastic and what it's based on ruins any comedic effect it may have had. In this case it wasn't amusing regardless, so not much of a loss, eh? OP.. haha, I love stupid people.

Haha. Ahh. Good good.

Sometimes I can barley tolerate others...

I'm blonde and I'm pretty smart ; but your comment was really stupid and you can't even use the excuse that you're a blonde. But OP that's not very good that they don't know that, lol

Thanks. I'm blonde. We can just ignore all my AP classes and standardized test scores and all that stuff. I guess I'm doomed for life.

I know a blonde who has never had a B. if anything, blondes are the smart ones.

You realize that by taking the comment seriously you are actually perpetuating the stereotype, no?

Maybe if you paid attention you'd know by sarcastic tone, I meant that blondes weren't stupid and that was a stereotype, but I guess you tried to make it true.

It doesn't matter how much attention we paid to it. It was still really poor sarcasm

127, nobody can take someone seriously if their profile picture is a shirtless mirror photo. Unless it's a girl, that is.

This is a good time to slap a bitch.

Not a real down to Earth person I see.

Nope, her head must be in the clouds.

#8 not the clouds, the white things.

Ya! Duh number 8!

I problay wouldn't know what it was either and imma good person

Hey the white things could be the also be the arctic

Generations are getting dumber and dumber, FAIL

Yes, they are.

And fatter.

That's just a generalization. There are some really smart highschoolers too. It's been the same way for forever, but maybe you can't remember.

You mean a generationalization?

Fuk u brah! Ma genrtion is smert as shit. Dont be playin me brah!! >:/

The white stuff doesnt necessarily mean they are all clouds, could be dust particles. Maybe she just wanted you to explain and there's nothing with wanting to learn.

ha I got negative votes for saying this regarding something equally stupid.

I think you're doing a good job, teach. Not!!!

The teacher probably is doing a good job, 11. Its not the fault of a teacher if a high school student doesn't know what a cloud is.

right because it's the teachers fault if kids are completely retarded?

Our education system is just fine

I think that in this case, the student is at fault not the education system . Anybody with common sense knows that.

Should've been a Canadian. We teach clouds in grade one, lulz

Instruct your class to find out what happens when they mix electricity & water. Society will thank you for it.

Better yet, tell them that bleach and ammonia gets them high.

It does absolutely nothing unless they touch it.

Don't worry, it's a 'hands on' type of experiment. You should sign up for it.

You are a dumb ass damnsmooth. Maybe you should try that 'hands on' experiment yourself
