How do you feel when people ask or say idiotic crap?

15 Of The Most Stupid Questions Ever Asked In Class. These Teachers Deserve Medals.
1. "Is Alaska a real state, or are you just messing with me?"

2. In class we were discussing the hole in the ozone layer. Some girl blurts out "Oh! That is the hole that the space shuttle flies through, right?"

3. We had a big presentation near the end of my 4th year of high school. It as one of those, “Things to know before you graduate” type things. One of the topics was choosing your area of study for college/university.

One kid said, “I’m not a liberal, and my dad is pretty conservative. Am I still allowed go to school for liberal arts?”

4. Our 9th grade English teacher was collecting food and stuff to send to Japan after the tsunami, namely rice.

A girl raised her hand and asked if it was to soak up all the water.

The teacher's look of disappointment could be felt down to her soul.

5. "Wait, volcanoes are real? I thought they were made up."

This was a high school freshman...

6. In my World History class a student was put on the spot and mumbled out the following question, "wait, did food exist back then?"

My teacher simply said, “Nope. The ancient Greeks used photosynthesis.”

I think he probably meant to ask, “did they prepare food back then.” But still, I’ve never seen a guy blush so hard.

7. We were discussing forest fires that were going on somewhere in the midwest at the time, and a girl asked, "How can the fires keep burning for more than one day? Do they start back up again every morning?"

She literally thought that fires only burn in the daytime. This was in a college class.
8. "Hey teacher, how many seconds are in a meter?"

...

9. I had to explain to basically 75% of a science class in high school that ants were animals, they didn't believe me so I had them go to the teacher, they were shocked: "bugs are animals".

10. On the first day of class I was doing my standard introductions and I told my class that I was from Portland, Oregon.

In response to this, a girl in her mid-twenties asked me: "So do you speak Portuguese then?"

Sometimes it’s hard not to laugh at my student’s questions.

11. High school chemistry class, we were working on a lab where we had to make little squares on a piece of plastic to perform tests in, and the squares had to have 2 cm long sides.

This kid at my lab table, who had already proven to be not so bright in class many times beforehand, got our teacher's attention, then asked what a centimeter was.

After the teacher thoroughly explained what a centimeter is, and where exactly to find them on the ruler in front of him, the student turned to us and said:

"I'm still not understanding this centimeter thing."

12. The following exchange took place in my grade 11 history class. We were discussing Egypt, and one girl actually said,

"Egypt really exists? I thought it was just some place from Jimmy Neutron."

Somebody else in the class also spoke up, saying, "What do you mean place, I thought Egypt was a religion."

13. Our class was discussing American history and the topic of the Vietnam war came up. One student mentioned that he is actually from Vietnam, and that he had family members who had gone through the war.

A teenaged girl raised her hand and said, completely seriously, “How can you be from Vietnam? Vietnam is a war, not a place.”

14. I’ll never forget this moment. Now given this was in the eighth grade, but still… a girl asked me how to spell "GPS".

Yes, English is her first language and yes, she still takes crap for it 5 years later.

15. Girl in my high school earth science class felt compelled to ask this one:"Where does the sun go at night?"

Realize that they are not as lucky as you, they're either just not very smart (or maybe they are, they just don't pay attention in class) or they were not able to get as good of an education as you. Realize that they don't know better and try to help them understand.

14. I’ll never forget this moment. Now given this was in the eighth grade, but still… a girl asked me how to spell "GPS".

I once convinced a guy that essay was an acronym that stood for statistic analysis to which he thanked me and went about writing his report. The teacher later was reading an excerpt from a book titled something like Wayside School something which read something like "And those kids are so stupid I bet they spell essay SA". The teacher smiled and looked at Derek. Derek shocked looked over to me. We both started laughing our ass off.

I may have strayed a little farther toward the darkside that day. Thankfully Derek also had a good sense of humor.

Lmao. This is more about misunderstandings than being idiots. And who knows? I've seen some boys who are more feminine and prettier than i'll ever be.

You're trying to make the point that some people are just too stupid/idiotic and there's no way to help them, right? Since there's not really much that can be done to help them, leave them alone.

There will always be people who are stupider than you and me and there will always be people who are smarter than you and me. Who knows? Maybe there are some really intelligent people who come in contact with the likes of us and think the things we say are stupid/idiotic.

No, even close. I just want to know how people feel about it. In this case, I think that the person who wrote that. Is really stupid and make me feel bad about them. In the other hand is Meme material.

Milk just shot out of my nose, I laughed so hard, and I wasn't even drinking anything.

Uh, but... maybe I should start. Drinking, I mean.
