“I had a high school chem teacher who bet us all $100 that if we passed his class, we would pass our first college chem class. He used to give out quarters for correcting him or for anything done really well. I will never forget the time he ate chalk to prove to us that it was the same stuff as in milk. He was brilliant, hilarious, and just a really incredible human being.”
“He was really awesome all around. He told stories about traveling the world over breaks, would get absurdly off-topic to teach us random stuff, and had a physics lab where we got to throw eggs at him. Occasionally, we had a class where absolutely nothing got done because we were having a discussion.
He put up posters about his trips and gave us extra credit quizzes about them because he said being observant was really important in chemistry. Actually, there were a few really weird activities in that class. Later, I also had a sociology professor who gave us a ‘Do Not Fail Checklist.’ Complete it, and you were guaranteed to pass.” —u/HylianEngineer
