She said that an army of God was coming to destroy this world on December 21, 2012, but not to worry, because Jesus had created another planet that was more beautiful than this one, a Utopia full of waterfalls where everybody was always 25 years old, where money does not exist, but Christmas does, complete with Santa Claus.

I want what she's on.

So basically the end of time and heaven, speaking to Jesus, the usual stuff. So what's the strange part?

The Santa Claus angel is new to me. And even beyond the obvious, I never got the impression from speaking with my South American friends that Santa is as a big for them as for Americans.

But I think I might be splitting imaginary hairs here.

He will create it. It's a miracle.

See? This is what happens when you don't make them teach to the test.

Incidentally, the News is not buying the medications alibi. As their reporter wrote two days ago:

Although the incident was initially attributed to a bad reaction to medication by a trusted source involved in the matter, [the teacher] displayed similar behavior when asked why she had made such comments. "Because it's true," she replied.


Huh? So because she happened to still be crazy when they asked her about being crazy, she's not crazy?

This person is pretty obviously mentally disturbed. I'm not sure what clever scheme they think is going on here.
 
2012-05-15 03:20:11 PM  
She closes by telling her shocked students that she can perform a miracle right there in front of them. She says that if her students will look deeply into her eyes, they will see that only one was hers, and the other belonged to Jesus. She says that he put his eye in her head so he could be with her always and see what she saw. After two kids tentatively try to take her up on her offer and retreat in fear, the teacher takes off her shoes and repeats the offer.

This was the best part, btw.
 
2012-05-15 03:30:59 PM  
I think those students should get an automatic 'A' for the class.

There's no telling what point she actually went off the deep end and what they may or may not have learned.
 
2012-05-15 03:42:17 PM  
That was definitely "DOBBS" approved!

I for one welcome our imaginary one-eyed saviors return to Earth and honor his wife too.
 
2012-05-15 03:46:46 PM  
I remember when someone slipped our teacher some acid.
 
2012-05-15 03:47:38 PM  
She's nuts. End of story.

At least her claim to be Mary Magdalene should keep the usual suspects from crying "religious discrimination!!!"
 
2012-05-15 03:48:13 PM  
Not on the standardized test? So this wasn't in Texas, then.
 
2012-05-15 03:48:31 PM  

Cagey B: Huh? So because she happened to still be crazy when they asked her about being crazy, she's not crazy?


No. Because she happened to still be crazy when they asked her about being crazy, she is crazy and therefore not a non-crazy person who had experienced a temporary drug reaction. That's their argument.
 
2012-05-15 03:50:20 PM  
"Ask him to text me!"

Damn kids.

lol.
 
2012-05-15 03:52:07 PM  
This is what Christians actually believe.
 
2012-05-15 03:52:32 PM  
That line between "religious" and "mentally ill" sure is a blurry one, isn't it?
 
2012-05-15 03:54:12 PM  
I think my favorite part is when she explains that Jesus and Mary started dating and "going to parties".I wonder if he was a good dancer too.
 
2012-05-15 03:55:53 PM  
How dare any of you question her integrity! She is a selfless teacher. She is infallible by definition.

You should all feel ashamed.
 
2012-05-15 03:56:57 PM  
My Christmas wish this year: A new planet, travel back in time 6 years, and a new bible with the book of Santa added just after Revelations.

Did we get a thread on the Oklahoma GOP convention?

This is just another example of Christians being persecuted for their beliefs.
 
2012-05-15 04:13:28 PM  
See, Bevets was right! They simply won't allow mention of God and Jesus in school! Not even when it's surrounded by librul new-agey topics like UFOs and the 2012 apocalypse... Shameful.

/Sorry, couldn't resist...

Well that was certainly a memorable class. Truly a story for the kids' lifetimes.

I'm gonna tell this CSB partly because it's pertinent, but mostly because I want to see if there are any farkers who were UVa pre-meds from the early-mid 1970s and who remember this guy.

I took Organic Chemistry, the bane of pre-meds, at UVa in fall '75-spring '76. We had a lecture professor who was like an emeritus, had taught the Orgo to 400-500 students a semester for so many years that nobody could remember. Damned if I can remember his name, but I do remember that his hobby was spelunking, and with all the nearby caves he was in heaven on his rare days off. In addition to all this he had actually participated in designing the Chemistry building at UVa, especially a Pressure Bomb Room on the top floor. This room was designed like a box, with a three-layer roof. Two of the layers were attached to the building frame on one side with hinges, and the third layer was completely loose, sitting on top of the other two layers. Inside the room was the pressure chamber used for barochemical experiments. In the event of a rapid overcompression (i.e. an explosion) in the pressure chamber room, the two attached layers would hinge open while the third layer would just pop straight up. The professor would tell us if we were ever walking by the Chemistry building and heard a loud bang, not to look up, just run for substantial cover, because that piece of roof was going to come down somewhere.

Anyway he was tough on us, as he had been with students for many years. Once in a rare while he would digress for a couple of minutes, as professors are wont to do, and we could relax from taking notes for a little while. But he always got back on the lecture pronto. Then, towards the end of the semester, something happened. His lectures slowly became less class material and more digression, especially stories about spelunking. Then one day he started off saying that Organic Chemistry was like a cave, dark and scary at first, but mysterious and compelling, beckoning the explorer inwards...he kept on this track for many minutes, until we students all started looking around at each other. We were obviously watching a man crack up, but what could we do? He was God. So the period ended and he kept talking, and we drifted out a few at a time.

His last few lectures were unremarkable and pedestrian. Then, during the final prep, he delivered a sterling lecture which had us all on the edge of our seats. He concluded by wishing us good luck on the final, and saying "I'm sorry I won't be back to teach 102 next semester; the board seem to think I shouldn't continue teaching Organic Chemistry." A pause, with complete silence in the lecture hall. "THEY THINK I'M CRAZY!" Hesitant laughter at first, eventually erupting into applause.

We only saw him once again after that. As predicted, he didn't lecture the next semester, however, he was one of the proctors during its final. He looked to be in bad physical shape, and he was carrying a box with tubes going into him.

Our prof had covered all the material by the last couple of weeks, he's pretty insane as well (I don't think many aren't) and pile drove everyone. Everyone has a little crazy in them, it's just how much and how apparent it is.

/half the class of 60 scored in the 85th percentile or higher
//8 of us were above 95th
///98th

Didn't Fartbama say he would create the same thing in '08? And he got elected POTUS.

...OK, there's "Person took Cipro, had the 'psychoactive effects' side-effect, and is now staring into the corners seeing the cat fairies that kitteh chases every night at 7pm sharp" crazy. Some people have really bad reactions to meds. It happens.

...and then there's the "Person sitting on a streetcorner gleefully telling you aaaaaalll about how the CIA put a laser in their butt that they use to send secret messages to the lizard people (who want to turn all of humanity into human Icees) but they're really actually a secret double agent who redirected the butt laser ray to Jesus and the Greys over at the planet Arcturus fighting against the lizard people fleet, and they think the Pakistani owner of the Circle K is working with them as a lizard person in human drag" full-blown psychotic break, where the only "bad reaction to meds" is "OK, the usual antipsychotics aren't working, we probably need to transition to one of the atypicals involving blood tests every week".

Seeing as she's had multiple examples of this (last year, this year, and apparently it's STILL going on)...I'm thinking it's less "seeing cat fairies on Cipro" and more "Butt Laser" sorts of Being In Crazyland (as a Farker poetically put it).
