    I was in a deliquent classroom in high school, where many crazy things happened. For me there was a few things that stick out:

    One time the class and I were taking a mandatory 10th grade test. We were all quiet. The teacher, who was female, asks us to turn the page to the next part of the test. For some unknown reason, I blurted out "No way Hubun!" in a Mickey Mouse voice. The whole class laughed for like 10 minutes, because it was so random.

    That same day, a friend of mine and I were sitting at the door to the room waiting for the teachers to come. Two of the other kids came running down the hall, stuck a key in the lock, broke the key into the lock, and ran away. Of course my friend and I got blamed for it, because we were the only ones there when the teachers arrived. We ended up notgetting in trouble, and had to wait for a locksmith to come and open the door.

    Another time I was having a bad morning. I walk into class, go over to my desk, and pick up and proceed to throw it at the wall, with all my stuff flying everywhere. My teacher got scared and had me escorted out of school and kicked out for a while.

    Another time I was eating lunch in the caf by myself. All of a sudden, a baked chicken breast comes flying from god knows where, hits me in the head, and lands on my plate. I couldn't help but laugh, because it was so unexpected.

    Another time I was very stressed out because all the kids in class were being assholes. I decided to get up and go for a walk. I go out, with the teacher yelling at me to get back. A girl decides to come with me. We go outside and walk around the school for a half hour. We return to class later on, and both get a 3 day suspension.

    Another time a teacher, two students, and I do an elaborate plan to trick the othr teacher. We had gone on a field trip, and everything went well. We came back and acted like it went bad. I walk into the time out room. The eacher that took us proceeds to tell the other that I abused the farm animals at the fair, I stole stuff, was swearing and yelling, was knocking stuff over, ran away, and all this other stuff. We were acting dead serious, and the other teacher believed it. He was ready to have me get in the most trouble that the school rules allowed. I then walk out of the time room, he starts yelling at me, and the other teacher starts laughing and saying it was a joke. It was funny.

    I had alot of fun in school, mainly cuz of the fact I like to joke around and laugh.
    In grade 11 my best friend and I had made a smoke bomb (Salt peter and sugar) about the size of a 6" pancake and lit it outside one of the smokepit doors at break. Well as soon as we lit the smoke bomb it started smoking like mad and as we went into the doors to run back inside, all the smokers were coming down the hall, so as they were filing out for their smoke, they were letting ALL of the smoke from the bomb in, laughing the whole time. We were worried we'd get caught cuz all my friends saw us and the one section of the school was completely filled with smoke. I'll never forget that!
    Back in middle (grades 7-9) we had a large cafeteria in the school that held about 300+ students. At lunch we would dare each other to throw something across the cafeteria without getting caught, and the person who threw the biggest thing won. I remember throwing hot dogs, hard buns, cookies, jello, and a mushy banana. Had some good laughs with that, and because the cafeteria was so packed we hardly got caught.
    Another time in Grade 11 I figured out how to use the teachers phone in the computer lab to get on the School's PA system. I told a clueless friend of mine that the phone only worked for the intercom in the computer lab, so he goes on it and says "Hello, my name is Jared Hannah and I am gay". Needless to say, the whole school heard it and everyone started laughing. I wasn't laughing when we got suspended for the day though, but it was worth it [​IMG]

    In Finite Math, we were given pre-tests, that you could take home and memorize. You'd get the same test two days later.
    Well, I was kinda lazy one week, so I decided to audio tape the answers and play them back on my walkman during the tests. What I didn't anticipate well enough was how long it would take to write down each answer, and when the answers started to speed by me, I said in a semi-loud voice "It's too fast!" Everyone laughed, and the teacher once again wondered what the hell I was doing.

    And there was another time in English class I sang a few bars of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" for no reason. I can't remember it, but friends said that's what they remember me from.

    ...And in a field trip to Manhattan in 1998, I made a Speed-esque sign saying there was a bomb on the bus. A cop laughed at us.

    And this one time, early one morning in the computer lab:

    10 FOR I=1 to 20000000: NEXT
    20 PRINT CHR$(7)
    30 PRINT "(name of computer science teacher) SUCKS THE BIG ONE"
    40 GOTO 20

    (Edit: In Applesoft BASIC on a 1984-vintage Apple //e, line 10 causes a delay of about 5 hours. Plenty of time to make a clean getaway before the Infinite Loop of Beeping Hell in lines 20-40 commences, in other words. In C++ on an Athlon XP, the equivalent 'for' loop takes 80 milliseconds.)

    In grade 11 I think, I had an english class right after lunch. So it was quite often that several of us were in the room before class started or the teacher was there.
    The one day a friend (tall but skinny) was leaning against the side chalk board that had a bunch of stuff written on it. I don't know what made us think of it, but another friend and I went over and picked him up by his armpits and started to erase the chalk board with him :p)
    Then quite a while later in the same class myself and another friend (validictorian, 98% average, the kid who never did anything wrong) where in the class waiting for other students and the teacher to get there. To my surprise the kid who never did any wrong goes up and raises the podium to a level the teacher couldn't see over. Drops her swivel chair as low as it will go and messes up a few other things on her desk. The only good idea was the podium, so I took it the next step and cranked the hand screw that holds it in place as tight as I could. Class starts, teacher walks up to the podium and can't see over it. Looks around it with this stupid look on her face and everyone starts laughing. She tries to lower it but can't undo the screw. Couple other students try, but they aren't strong enough. There is only one other kid in the class besides me capable of loosening it. He goes and loosens it and gets blamed for tightening it. As most of the people in the class wouldn't have thought I would have tightened it or could have loosened it.
    Pretty tame compared to some of the other stuff mentioned. But what do you expect from a rather small school where the same 20 students followed each other around in the advanced placement classes for 3 years [​IMG]
    Now the stories from working as a lifeguard at the local pool during high school are a little more intersting [​IMG]

    I can tell about the stuff that I had no part in [​IMG]
    One year they decided that all Seniors should do a Senior Project on social issues. Naturally, said Seniors were upset
    Some creative persons who will remain nameless kidnapped the bust of Robert Frost from the library and sent the administration a picture of it blindfolded, tied to a chair with a gun to its head threatening horrible stuff if the Senior Project wasn't cancelled. Mr. Frost was never seen again
    2 guys decided to use their chemistry skills for fun, and they mixed up the most potent weed killer known to man. They went out to the lacrosse field in the dead of night and drew a 150ft smiley face in it. They said nothing would grow for 7 years. 4 years later it was still there, but they've ripped up the turf to build an addition so we didn't get a chance to test the full tilt
    And the final, a certain someone who kept our radio station patched together (the oldest HS radio station in the country BTW) and is now a lighting technician. One day in the dead of night after he finished patching the transmitter, he decided to patch a CD player and a timer into the PA system. He did this wayyy up in the crawlspace, bypassing the master control board. At about 10AM, Adam Sandler began to seranade the entire school. It took them the better part of an hour to find it [​IMG] They were going to fire the night janitor, and offered a $500 reward for his capture. Tim turned himself in to keep the guy from being fired, but he didn't get the $500.

    Here are some high school water polo/swimming stories:

    One time I showered with 7 other guys in a single shower stall, all wearing speedos because it so cold outside we needed the hot shower to warm ourselves after practice. We were all cheek to cheek and were lucky that nobody walked in and made any assumptions.

    Another time at a swim meet one of our teamates popped a stiffy and was on the starting blocks. May I add he was wearing a very small speedo and the girls saw a little bit of "it".

    Another time during practice this other girl was getting ready to jump in the water and she had blood dripping on her thighs. She was turned beat red and jumped in the pool to wash it off. Naturally the near by guys were disgusted and vacated the lane.

    One time during a water polo scrimage my hand slipped onto the front of another guys speedo. We both laughed and said stuff like: "You did not just touch that", and I said "Was that what I think it was?!" We were laughing and the coach scolded us because we weren't paying attention to the game.

    On a funnier note:

    One time when nobody was around, a coupld friends and I took fire extinguishers from around the area and jumped in the pool with them. We tried to use them as jet packs underwater and make huge smoke bubbles/clouds. We ended up covering the entire pool deck with yellow/white dust and leaving a thick film on the pool surface. Another guy was in the bathroom showering so what we also did was create a dust cloud around the door so when he exited, he wouldn't be able to see.

    One time another guy farted deep under water and the bubbles drifted up and were caught in another guys mouth. He had his mouth open facing towards the pool floor and almost gagged.

    One time we went to the pool deck early in the morning and we saw the coach and his girlfriend had camped there overnite. Both were in their bathing suits so the guys were hesitant to swim in spuzz infested waters.

    One time a team mate was complaining that his eyes were burning and his skin was peeling. Turned out that the pool was super chlorinated due to feces in the waters and the coach didn't see the sign. It wasn't the feces that grossed the team out, but the burning eyes/skin from the super chlorinated water.

    ahh, there's too many to remember.

    In my english class.. Junior year, I think... My teacher made some joke, and got no reaction except an awkward silence. She then said 'Well, I guess that wasn't all that funny..." -- At this point I raised my hand and informed her "I was laughing on the inside." She really didn't like me, at all, from that day forth.
    My favorite HS classroom experience was senior year in Calculus. My teacher was very boring. I found math boring enough, let alone calc, but this teacher managed to take it to a new level. I never paid attention in class, I really seemed incapable of it. My two friends who set in front and beside me were quite the same way.
    One day, we are asked to do a problem on the board, and the teacher has us do it in groups. He chooses us three who never pay attention, presumably to make us look a bit foolish (which was pretty fair, frankly...)
    So, we know we're doing problem #11. The chapter and section? We weren't quite sure, though the ones we thought it might be looked far too confusing to even try at. Instead, we chose to play hangman. We were also the last group to show our problem, and amazingly the teacher had not noticed what we were doing. When he finally got to us, he asked "What the hell are you doing!?" -- I could only respond: "Playing hangman. Pick a letter." Someone in the class picked a letter and we added another limb. Eventually we were told a bit more forcefully to sit down. We received no disciplinary action, though we all got rather poor grades.
    A girl I knew got food thrown at her by some popular jock in the cafeteria. The whole jock table was laughing. She simply stood up with her tray with all her food on it and walked over, and waited for him to stop laughing and say something. At this point, with the entire lunch room watching, she says 'Ooops!' and throws her entire lunch in the kids lap and calmly walks away. Seven years later, it still cracks me up. Same girl got kicked out of the english class I was in (mentioned above) for playing poker with one of the hangman companions. We had many other run-ins with that english teacher...
    Oh, I once offered a teacher a fresh baked apple pie in exchange for a higher grade. It worked (but he insisted I get my mother to bake it. I did.) To be fair, he was an excellent teacher, and I was easily his best student. But I was taking an independent study with him my senior year and was being very lazy. (Backstory: He often moaned about how his wife was utterly incapable of baking, despite her well spirited efforts. He was retiring as well. Really, it worked out well for all of us.)
    There were many others. I have problems with authority... [​IMG]
    Edit:
    Christ, I forgot a great one from that same english class. Somehow we get into a discussion of prostitution. How much money would it take? What if no one knew, etc. So at some absurd amount, one girl is willing to take the initiative and say you'd be crazy not to (we're talking perhaps 100 million here) because you would be set for life and could do a lot of good in the world. So I offer up the sum of 10 million. No difference. One million... slight pause. 100k... long pause, but it could pay for all of college, etc. Now I can't resist, it's too easy... I take out my wallet and open it up... How about seven bucks, I say. Half laughter and half mortification from the class, and a scolding from the teacher. I was actually friendly with the girl years later... (though not seven dollars friendly...)

    Stephen,
    You must have really enjoyed your childhood. You certainly share enough experiences about it with us. But I guess you might just be reminiscing about things that happened to you... what... about 6, 7, 8 years ago?

    10th Grade Science Class: We started the year with a new teacher, but he didn't last the whole year. For some reason the students just did not respect him and he had various bad things done to him. Naming them all would take too much time, but I will mention the worst.

    One day, all the students decided to really scare the hell out him. They got everyone in the class before him, closed the blinds and turned off the lights. Then when he entered the classroom they closed the door behind him and encircled him while pushing him around. He ended up falling on the floor and breaking his glasses. He quit the next day. Though I was'nt in the room at the time, I couldn't believe something like that could happen at our school. Needless to say, a lot of students got expelled.

    Hahaha, those are some funny stories, and I'm glad I wasn't on the swim team. Another one of my funny stories....

    One day in math glass (grade 11) we had a sub teacher who was pretty dumb. SO during break I somehow convinced my clueless friend (same one who talked on the school PA) that the fire extinguisher in the corner was empty and all that came out was air. I even squeezed the trigger just enough so just air would come out, so he walks over, and squeeze's the trigger all the way down. Well a huge cloud of yellow dust shot from the extinguisher and went all the way across the room and clouded up the whole room. The sub teacher just sat there with her jaw agape and didn't know what to do/say, sooo funny.

    One night not too long ago me and my two best friends found a pretty freaky lookin' halloween mask that looked like an evil old man. It was just real enough that at first glance you'd probably be pretty frightened. We took it around our houses(right in a row next to each other) and scared our parents, brothers, etc. We lived right next to the school so we said "Hey, lets see if there's anyone over there and make em crap their pants." [​IMG] There was only one light on in the building, and the window was open. It was the office of the really stressed and uptight out class scheduling lady. So we made the plan. You know: "Afterwards we'll split up, you go this way I'll go that way, etc." So my friend puts on the mask and goes outside the window acting like a hunchback. The next thing you know we hear the most blood-curdling scream "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!" We bolted and met up a few minutes later. My friend's dad who was a teacher at the school told us afterwards she was huddled under her desk talking on the phone. We still laugh about it to this day. [​IMG]

    Oh man, these are great. Here's a couple that I can remember:

    10th grade Chemistry class was right after lunch. My buddy Pete and I walked up to the classroom after we were done eating but before any other students, or the teacher, had arrived. Pete pulls a small blue "super ball" from his pocket and we start bouncing it back and forth, playing catch. After a couple of minutes, I get bored, so I decided to throw the ball as hard as I could at the floor to watch it bounce back and forth between the floor and ceiling. I wind up, whip the ball at the floor and watch as it makes its way from the back of the classroom to the front, smashing each and every plastic light cover in between! We just stood there like idiots...then burst out laughing. One of the more straight laced students came running in from the hallway to see what happened. This is the best part - he runs in, looks at the damage, looks at us and says "You guys are in TROUBLE!" and runs back out. Amazingly, we didn't get in trouble for it and that kid never said a word!

    10th grade again. That same friend and I were in Honors Biology class together. In that classroom, we sat at lab tables - 2 students per table. We were covering reproduction at the time, and I guess we were bored. We used to rip pages out of our notebooks and keep them between us so we could draw silly pictures and still look like we were paying attention and taking notes. At the time, we were making up funny-sounding Latin words ala Monty Python's The Life of Brian (Biggus Dickus, etc - we were pretty dorky). I had the hots for one of the girls in our class named Michelle - she was so hot! (waaaaay out of my league though). So, I write "Michellus (last name removed)us Totalus Sexyus" on the paper. At one point, the teacher caught me off guard and asked me to answer a question (it had become obvious that we weren't paying attention!). I did my best to answer and got it wrong. So, the teacher walks over to see what we're doing. He takes the sheet and starts reading all the stupid shit we were writing out loud in front of the class. The class was laughing because some of them were pretty funny, but I was cringing as he got closer and closer to the comment about Michelle. I breathed a sigh of relief as he skipped over her name.

    Pete and I both got low grades for the test on the reproduction chapters. That was pretty much an indicator of my high school sex life as well! I did eventually let Michelle know how I felt about her - after Pete wrote a fake love letter to her and signed my name! She thought that I was sweet, but she had a boyfriend at the time.

    Oh man, high school was so much fun!

    Just for shits and giggles I wrote some code that displays random size filled in rectangles that are displayed at random colors as fast as the i386 could display them. We where sitting at the drawing tables in the CAD room and another student came in. She was obviously on drugs and went over and started pounding on they keyboard and monitor yelling "stop it, stop it, damn it". This was the same class we caught our teacher sniffing glue.

    I went to a very small school, and my physics teacher was about the only teacher in school with a boyfriend. Every other teacher was either married, or completely single. I tortured her. Her boyfriend was a prof at a nearby university in the astrophysics department or something. Anyway, we started talking about the telescope at the university and how he could basically take pictures of anything in our solar system. ANYONE but this teacher could see it coming when I started asking her if he had pictures of pluto and saturn in the most deadpan voice, of course I quikly got around to asking "does he have pictures of Uranus. I didnt even crack a smile. She didnt even yell at me because I didnt laugh. I think if I would have laughed, I would have been in trouble.

    I led a rather bland existence. The only thing I can remember is that in Spanish class, I did something that was pretty good, got really happy about it, and for some odd reason dropped to the floor and did that Curly/Homer thing where he runs in circles. Don't ask me why.....
