PC LOAD LETTER: THERE'S NO RULES!
foxyshadis: Can you teach from a padded cell?
Mixolydian Master: PC LOAD LETTER: THERE'S NO RULES!PUT YOUR SHIRT BACK ON!
ZeroCorpse: He found out the truth, and it he couldn't handle it.
gonegirl: I just feel so bad for this guy. So bad. He's clearly not evil or malevolent, he's just had his brain break down so totally that he can't control his behavior. I can't imagine how much pain he's in at the moment - he's either still so delusional that he's hurting too bad to act rationally, or he's finished with his psychotic break and therefore sane enough to know that he's just farked his career and the way that his colleagues will always see him.
bextraordinary: Yay, we made FARK!/grad student//pretty much constantly just seconds away from snapping like this
rwfan: That guy looks a lot like me[img.gawkerassets.com image 300x400]except I am not quite that pixelated.
Farabor: Speaking as someone still struggling to get his math degree after many years, hampered by mental illnesses.....yeah. Sucks, but is unfortunately correlated to be into seeing the world through alternate lenses. One of my favorite mathematicians spent his end days in an asylum.
semiotix: If it's the guy that the reddit threads say it is, he's tenured. So he'll be fine, and whatever glimpse of old man ass those kids might have been subjected to was still probably less painful than a typical Calc 1 lecture.
chopit: Haha. Mental illness is hilarious./hope the guy gets help
poorjon: Something something drink and derive./Had a calc prof who stared at the projector screen for a minute or two when the Mac plasma ball screen saver came on before finally saying "oh, you see it too. so it isn't just an acid flashback"
CrispFlows: I'm actually surprised there isn't more math teachers driven to insanity from the inanity of the students.
Kevin72: CrispFlows: I'm actually surprised there isn't more math teachers driven to insanity from the inanity of the students.If you RTFA, you would see that the students' actions were exemplary during the incident.
DrgnMech: I had the unfortunate pleasure of seeing this guy in action. Dude rounded the corner as I was going down the engineering hall toward class. He was talking to himself and clearly out of his mind. Biggest "WTF" moment I've had in loooong time.Also, I'm out of eye bleach. Any donations? =(
Speaker2Animals: What math class stripping should look like...[i.imgur.com image 850x637]
Gawdzila: Speaker2Animals: What math class stripping should look like...[i.imgur.com image 850x637]That's physics class. Awwww yeeaaaaah.
Tatterdemalian: everything can be modeled mathematically, if you know the right formula
ultraholland: oh, com on, it was his lesson on irrational numbers!
DoctorCal: Sounds like the guy reached his limit.

dready zim: Tatterdemalian: everything can be modeled mathematically, if you know the right formulathis is not true if you use actual computers instead of some sort of computer run by unicorns or fairiesYes it`s from WIKI but it`s easy to copypasta from there so,"Chaos theory is a field of study in mathematics, with applications in several disciplines including physics, engineering, economics, biology, and philosophy. Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general. This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved. In other words, the deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable. This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.Chaotic behavior can be observed in many natural systems, such as weather"
Hyjamon: Gyrfalcon: Mixolydian Master: PC LOAD LETTER: THERE'S NO RULES!PUT YOUR SHIRT BACK ON!THERE'S ONE RULE!!!for some reason, I really like that commercial and chuckle everytime I see it.
StreetlightInTheGhetto: poorjon: Something something drink and derive./Had a calc prof who stared at the projector screen for a minute or two when the Mac plasma ball screen saver came on before finally saying "oh, you see it too. so it isn't just an acid flashback"My friend had a calc grad student instructor who would frequently start writing in Cryllic letters on the chalkboard. They were all so damn terrified of him no one brought it up, and he never noticed (or if he did, never cared enough to apologize or correct it).Made me feel better about *my* calc grad student instructor at the time, who wore the same t-shirt and fairly certain had his hair in the same ponytail all semester.Math is fun./of course, the one awesome, ridiculously normal professor I had was an assistant professor who left after it was apparent he wouldn't get tenure//but of course///he had students coming to his office hours 3 or 4 semesters after they first took a class with him, cause he'd still help
