solarmorrigan So 10th grade English class We all come in one morning to find a balloon and a perfectly sharpened pencil on each of our desks No instructions no explanation which is strange because our teacher is meticulous about that sort of thing A couple of people try to ask her and she says we'll get to it She takes role and then announces that she needs to go to the copy room and she'll be back in a couple of minutes Kinda unorthodox but no one is complaining because this is advanced English and the teacher usually goes kinda hard So y'know Brief respite We all sit and chat one of the boys teasingly steals a girl's bailoon but gives it back to her easily enough it's quiet and kind of a nice break Then the teacher comes back stops in the doorway and just stares at us After a long moment she says confused You didn't pop the balloons To which one of the guys about two rows over exclaims We re allowed to pop them? and immediately turms around and stabs his friend's balloon with the pencil There is a vicious revenge balloon-stabbing and a few more people pop seatmates balloons or their own and the whole time the teacher is just shaking her head 1 can't believe you didn't pop your balloons Apparently we were starting Lord of the Fies that day and she wanted to demonstrate the basic concept of kids turning on each other when there are no authority figures present and it was basically my favorite failed social experiment ever vansnailismylife Back in my 10th grade we did a similar things around Lord of the Flies where we had a test scheduled for that day and when we walked in the teacher took role by looking through the window of the door and never entered the classroom On the board were three tasks written and the teacher had brought in donuts At first we all sat around and waited for the teacher to come in but eventually we just started tackling the ist of tasks Task 1-the test Everybody took it silently no one cheated everyone turned it in and we went on to Task Two tidy up the room So we did we split into a couple groups and each one cleaned an area of the room Task Three Hand out the donuts There were 12 donuts and 30 of us So we split the donuts into thirds each took a third and left the extras for the teacher After this the teacher came in absolutely FUMING She was so upset we had followed all the rules and completed the tasks Apparently she had been texting kids telling them to start some chaos but they all ignored it because they were too nice She tied to dock our grades for not going absolutely wild because it meant her class didnt get the point across hookedonafeeeling That's because lord of the flies isnt representative of humanity its representative of rich white male shitheads Meme
