Top 10 Best Ways to Annoy a Chemistry TeacherAs a physics guy, I've noticed that chemistry teachers tend to be fixed to their subject. And not in a good way, like my humble yet committed self, but in a crazy way, like a hyperactive puppy over your bacon sandwich. Grabs to it without thinking twice, and has its full attention over it.
They're also paranoid about even the slightest mention of another subject, and give evil stares if you say "I'm a physicist" or something similar. I've also had them boast about how chemistry is the most important subject you'll ever come across, period. Sometimes it's just continuous.
So I thought, if you've got a crazy chemistry teacher, their weaknesses are obvious. You can tackle them when they least expect it. Try and tell them it's not a cool kind of crazy. And "kick them when they're down".
Apologies to any chemists reading; I speak from experience, not stereotype. And I know it's primarily chemistry teachers; I've done various subjects in my time and only got it with them. And I've had numerous teachers for chemistry, a subject I like lots but is not my #1.
You'll get a bad reference from the chemistry department, but it will be worth it.
It really gets to them. If you want to see a shocked look, go right ahead.
I love the reaction I get from doing this. Aren't I sadistic?
Every lesson. It won't work if it's a one-off.
This would be hilarious, but I'm not a slacker, so this may be a daring one.
How I'd love this. They'd be stumped for words in defense of their subject!
Haha! And it's really true! Why? Because quantum physics (developed by physicists) explained the atomic structure. Who went through all the pain for this? Physicists!
The atomic orbitals used Schrödinger's equation for their buildup, and chemistry teachers say how beautiful their hybridization theory (or MOT theory) is, which makes "their" chemistry so elegant (although none of these theories would have been possible without the idea of atomic orbitals).
In fact, physics textbooks explain the chapters on nuclei, atomic structure, etc., in a much better way than our chemistry textbooks.
As soon as the teacher overhears, a piece of chalk or a whiteboard pen gets thrown at you, but it is so worth it.
You'll sound a bit odd at first, but they'll eventually get it. However, if the computer fixes itself, it will be massively awkward.
Don't make the comments too rude! If you value the bones in your fingers and don't want them smashed, don't go too far.
