Top Ten Dumbest Things That Have Ever Been Done by Students In Physics Practical TestsPositronWildhawk I have to work with absolute imbeciles like these from time to time. They do some of the most catastrophically dumb things, and it makes one wonder how the hell they got into the class in the first place. Or how some of them have girlfriends.
The Top Ten
A classmate almost did this once - we were so lucky it didn't leave anything worse than a tiny melted spot on the desk. - Entranced98
How dumb can people be? Society is supposed to be advancing, for crying out loud! - Merilille
Once my class mates did this thing and get a shout from lab assistant.. - paasadani
Even I'D know not to do this... Afterwards... - BritgirlV 1 Comment
I cursed a few expletives aloud when I caught my group doing this. The guy who was in charge when my back was turned currently aspires to be an engineer. How he will do that without someone being hurt or something exploding is beyond me! - PositronWildhawk
That's certainly dumb. The worst I have done in physics practical test is doing reverse biasing of zener diode with a mili-ampere ammeter as current measurer (instead of using micro-ampere ammeter). - Kiteretsunu
How old are they? Really? I'm a hard-working physics student and I still have to put up with 6' tall 6-year-olds! - PositronWildhawk
A dumb thing to do. But would be even dumber if that would work. They tried it with my glasses, and they should know by this stage that, because I'm short-sighted, my glasses have concave lenses, which are designed to scatter light. This incompetence pains me greatly. - PositronWildhawk
I'd like to see the look on all of their other teachers' faces when they find out why they couldn't meet that deadline for that big assignment. - PositronWildhawk
Why why why why why why WHY?
Also, if the spring had not broken, you'd have the most pathetically inaccurate results. How are you meant to calculate its spring constant like that? - PositronWildhawk
If these people actually continue to take on physics, I hope they take entirely theoretical courses. - PositronWildhawk
And I mean stripping the plastic from the cables. They are walking, talking, dangerous money wasters. - PositronWildhawk
To them, anything can be used, no matter whether it's destroyed. - PositronWildhawk
Them: "Electrons travel through tin? Never would have thought it! "
Me: "Why? Because, ever since kindergarten, we never covered metallic properties or conductivity? " - PositronWildhawk
Why, this is worst than #5!
