DS told me that his biology teacher related this incident to them, because they are going to do a squid dissection today.

A year or two ago, the teacher had a student who couldn't handle dissections - he would faint when he saw the inside of the creature. He didn't realize that the squid dissection was on that day but he had to go ahead and do it. And when Mr. Squid was opened up, he once again fainted.

And when he fainted, he fell forward and face planted. Into the squid.

That's a good one for "Things You Shouldn't Laugh At"  ;D

Too funny! Not sure if I've posted this in here before, it's not quite Student Darwinism but it could have been. A friend of mine from high school had gotten into dentistry school & during his gross anatomy class, he passed out when they started doing the dissection. Apparently hit is head pretty hard & missed the rest of class that day. He was afraid that it would get him kicked out of the program but it turns out that's a fairly common occurrence & he was able to complete the course ;)

Anybody else now picturing the opening credits to Quincy M.E. ?

At least that cop fell sideways instead of into Quincy's autopsy field...

Was reminded of this recently - a high school student left his essay in the printer at my library.  Not darwinism, but I suspect he got a low grade.

His essay was on how Martin Luther fought for women's rights during the Civil War.

Based on what other students' papers were on, I suspect his topic was Martin Luther King in the civil rights era.

I thought that was exactly what he did?  Martin Luther, original flavor, wrote the 95 Theses, which were a protest of a practice followed by the Catholic Church at the time, a few centuries before the American Civil War.  The only Martin Luther of note in the Civil War was a Martin Luther Smith, who was a general...of the Confederate Army.  Martin Luther King, Jr. was the 1960's era Civil Rights movement leader.

I think dawnfire meant, "at least he didn't write Martin Luther King into the Civil war" (although writing Martin Luther into the civil war is still wrong, just wrong in a different direction in time.

This reminds me of a classic that a library visitor told me. 

'Hannibal took his elephants over the Alps to bring Islam to Spain'. 

He was seriously trying to 'educate' me.

Where oh where is the head-explode smily when you need it?!

I mean, that one is not just historically wrong, it's geographically wrong as well - I suppose we should be at least grateful the chap didn't inform you it was Mr T and his elephants. Or Howling Mad Murdoch...

I pity the fool who messes with Mr. T's elephants!
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.
