In high school, this kid would regularly pick his nose and eat it in class. He was also caught masturbating to girls in the school library and on a school bus. He got suspended for a week and had to register as a sex offender.

Edit/update: he was 17, is no longer registered as a sex offender, and was able to go to college.

For elementary school, I was that weird kid.

I didn't talk until I was 5, and when i started, I had maybe a 20 word vocabulary and only spoke when spoken too for about 3 to 4 years.

But, at age 5 when I just started to talking, the local 10 year old genius who was also our neighbour (was actually a genius, graduated at 12 or something close), walked up to me and said, 'The answer to every question can be found through observing,' and then walked off. That's it. That is all he said.

I, on the other hand, was, and still am, an absolute idiot. What I interpreted from what he said was, 'The answer to every question is observing.' Now, I knew this kid had the smarts i didn't have, so i took what he said very seriously and unfortunately very literally.

My parents were freaking out, my school had to call my parents multiple times and eventually we had a big meeting, that ended up landing me in therapy because for nearly a solid year, the only thing i ever said to anyone was 'observing.'

2 x 2=? Observing

What do you want for tea? Observing

What is on the TV? Observing

Why the hell are you such a stupid fucking kid? Observing

[–]eveisannoying 622 points623 points  (12 children)

That’s fuckin hilarious.

[–]SookHe 714 points715 points  (11 children)

43 years old now and i still can't have a single conversation with anyone in my family without at least one person saying, 'Observing' as the answer to at least one question.

[–]sendmePMsofyourBMs 412 points413 points  (4 children)

The weird kid at my highschool tied a string around his pencil case and pulled out around the halls pretending it was a dog. He still lives in my hometown. I think unemployed.

Oh also weird girl in middle school acted like a cat. She would meow and hiss at people, lick the water fountain and rub her body on the teacher's legs. In 8th grade. I have no idea where she ended up.

[–]angusthedangus 1213 points1214 points  (13 children)

At my middle school, someone decided to get a little attention with a good old fashioned bomb threat. Except they thought that a bomb threat meant literally writing "bomb threat" somewhere. Worse yet, they misspelled the fuck out of it, and wrote "boom theret."

So we had to go on a brief, very awkward lockdown while the police checked the perimeter for booms.

[–]DarkPasta 376 points377 points  (7 children)

Well, there was "frog boy", all he did was run around the woods catching lizards, frogs, raising tadpoles in a bucket. That kinda stuff. He had ADD before ADD was a thing, so he was labelled "active", and our teacher would sometimes just let him run out of the classroom to do a couple laps. He was just crazy energetic, but all smiles. He superglued the woodshop tools to the wall. And he covered the school kitchen with flour. That kind of stuff.

He went on to be a professional motocross rider.

[–]YairleyD 2310 points2311 points  (47 children)

Every lunch he would put a baguette in his sleeve and secretly eat it.

[–]memoryduel 7161 points7162 points 2 (143 children)

He heard that you’d automatically get suspended if you peed your pants at school. He wanted to find out if it was true, peed his pants, got suspended.

[–]Theonering1 2426 points2427 points  (26 children)

Had a kid nicknamed "cheeseburger" in the grade ahead of me in highschool. He got his nickname because when it was time for his class to go to lunch, he snuck into the roof and crawled his way into the cafeteria, dropped down and proceeded to steal all the cheeseburger put out for lunch. Unfortunately they caught him in the act and sent him to the principal's office.

A year later he was caught stealing a teacher's computer, and in the process of being arrested he bit the officers hand, getting him sent to juvi never to be heard of again

[–]marrymary420 2343 points2344 points  (81 children)

We had a guy who wore a dragon tail, believing he was a dragon and same story for a different guy but his thing was wearing a cat bell. There were lots of rumors about the cat bell guy.....

[–]DivinerElite 1718 points1719 points  (25 children)

He would say very obscure elements on the periodic table and start singing about it as if it were his friend (We were like 7/8)

jumping on the giant christmas tree from the 2nd floor balcony, that was the last time they put a christmas tree on our school

[–]Atlv0486 4890 points4891 points  (58 children)

His locker only ever had three things in it. His American flag cape, one of those foldable razor scooters and a box turtle.

[–]OH_CALI2017 3355 points3356 points  (95 children)

Showing us a video he uploaded to YouTube of him cutting his poop in half with a hanger as it was laying in the toilet bowl.

Edit: everyone asking for the video link, im sorry. I don't have the link and I'm too afraid to even attempt to find it on YouTube. Thinking about searching "turd cutting in toilet bowl" on YT seems dangerous.

[–]Kurtles12 4716 points4717 points 2 (64 children)

He got mad that he didn’t understand how to play a game at lunchtime so he started hitting and punching the nearest person to him, who happened to be me. When I shoved him away and asked him what the hell was he doing, he whipped his dick out, charged at me and when I shoved him away from me again he started crying and ran away with his member still sticking out.

[–]bennitori 1907 points1908 points  (18 children)

So uh.... How'd the teachers handle that?

[–]Kurtles12 1635 points1636 points  (8 children)

No teachers saw it and I guess everyone was too lazy to tell a teacher.

[–]ReturnOfTheFox 9728 points9729 points  (144 children)

In first grade there was this kid who stood by the sink in the back of the classroom eating bits of those brown paper towels. The teacher was constantly telling him to stop eating them and go back to his seat.

[–]Darths_Desire 3492 points3493 points  (88 children)

in first grade I used to eat that grey paper they give you in math class. not white lined paper - its too slick. just the grey kind, which I think is recycled and breaks down when you chew it. I was only 5, so I didn't understand that it isn't good for you; the compulsion was too strong to resist.

Turned out that a lot of small children eat stuff like that when they are iron-deficient anemic. Once my doctor put me on iron pills I stopped wanting the paper.

[–]Comprehensive-Fun47 220 points221 points  (6 children)

Turned out that a lot of small children eat stuff like that when they are iron-deficient anemic. Once my doctor put me on iron pills I stopped wanting the paper.

It’s so interesting how that works. Was the paper providing any of the iron your body was seeking?

It’s amazing that on some level we know what nutrient or mineral we’re lacking and start to crave things that contain it, but not because we logically know it contains what we need.

[–]roberted1982 2149 points2150 points  (76 children)

Had the weird kid in high school ask the teacher to use the bathroom. She said no and this dude legit stabbed his hand with a pencil. Went all the way through then asked if he could now... Shit was wild.

Edited: also to add to this. This was Pearl High School in Mississippi. This was the school Luke Woodham shot and killed his girlfriend and her friend at the school. This kid stabbed himself with the pencil about 2 months after that happened. This was late 1997.

[–]zzaannsebar 381 points382 points  (5 children)

Related story but this girl wasn't a weird kid. She asked to use the bathroom during a class with a male teacher. He said no and told her to hold it. She straight up, in front of the entire class said, "I cannot hold the blood from pouring out of my vagina." got up, and left the classroom anyway.

[–]roberted1982 150 points151 points  (0 children)

That whole power dynamic of controlling the restroom blows my mind.

[–]Fun-Acadia-8735 24.9k points24.9k points 232 (296 children)

She wrote a list of all the girls and boys she wanted to kiss and murder and then casually passed it out on the playground.

A wild kid activated a fire hose and started blasting everyone that came his way, students, teachers, didn't matter.

[–]LucyMullet 17.6k points17.6k points 2 (391 children)

One of my old students did that, it was hilarious (obviously I had to pretend not to find it amusing, but it was great).

[–]Vlad-V-Vladimir 11.7k points11.7k points  (377 children)

This makes me wonder how many teachers find things just as funny as students do, but can’t show it due to school rules. Like some of the shit kids do is genuinely hilarious and not finding it so seems strange.

[–]theknightwho 10.1k points10.1k points  (201 children)

My partner’s a teacher. They all find a lot of things hilarious.

They also pretend not to know how things like memes, TikTok or Snapchat work because it winds the kids up.

[–]DY357LX 7709 points7710 points  (125 children)

My friend does this with her son; "you still playing that game, what's it called, Fork Knife?"

[–]theknightwho 6139 points6140 points  (60 children)

Her latest wind-up is thinking the Clock app is TikTok. The kids fall for it every time.

What makes it extra funny is that her meme game is actually really strong but all the kids think she has no idea how any of it works.

Weird kid in elementary was a self proclaimed alien. Once, while waiting for the bus, she told me “On my planet we eat people like you” and proceeded to bite me. We later became friends in high school and she used to give me massages during lunch break in the quad. Just realized now she was likely tenderizing me.

[–]Alexblay 10.9k points10.9k points  (101 children)

How good were the massages though?

[–]iheartrevolution 12.3k points12.3k points 2 (87 children)

Worth the risk, for sure. They took the edge off from Algebra 2.

[–]10per 17.3k points17.3k points 2 (166 children)

He didn't say much, but if asked, he would go to the front of the class and perform Tip-Toe Through the Tulips with all of the emotion and volume of Tiny Tim, holding nothing back.

[–]dottedbird 5216 points5217 points  (82 children)

Now he is on Broadway.

[–]10per 5848 points5849 points  (76 children)

The last I heard, he became an energy trader, made a ton of money and married well.

[–]Zack_Knifed 3185 points3186 points  (54 children)

LOL had this weird kid in my class who was otherwise okay but just would do really unexplainable stuff. He once opened his lunchbox in class and threw the contents right onto the overhead ceiling fan. It was something liquidy and greenish. Hit the spinning fan, splashed down all over us, the walls, the board. The poor teacher got the worst rain down on his face.

As a punishment, the entire class was made to clean the classroom. Surprisingly, we were not mad at him, we all had a real good laugh at it.

[–]Thursday_the_20th 3613 points3614 points 2 (92 children)

Sharpened a pencil super sharp, muzzle-loaded it into the recorder, covered all the holes and blow gunned it at another kid. The pencil went between his eyeball and socket so fortunately he kept his sight.

Similarly after I switched schools (this happened before I arrived so I didn’t actually see it) a girl used blu-tac to stick a short and very sharp pencil on a kids seat. He sat on it and it punctured the skin right next to his asshole then perforated his rectum. Needed emergency surgery.

[–]foxybite11 19.5k points19.5k points 4 (228 children)

When the teacher told him to sit down he screamed "Fuck you cow", fast forward 2 years he tells everyone he's a vampire and stabs my friend with a pen to try to make him bleed.

He was weird like.

A guy I knew in highschool had a mouse living in his car. Not a pet mouse or anything, just a wild mouse. He would intentionally leave food in the backseat for it. I almost didn't believe it until I saw the thing run under the seat when he opened the door.

He also wore this full cow suit to school one time, which freaked an autistic kid who had a specific fear of cows. There was a lot of debate if he wore it to freak the kid out our if he wore it just to be weird.

He's a youth pastor now.

[–]Taman_Should 15.8k points15.8k points 23 (310 children)

Said absolutely nothing to anyone besides "I like cows" for about a month. Anything you said to him, regardless of the context or situation? "I like cows."

[–]BrainLover19 26.7k points26.7k points 322 (403 children)

One girl used to run/gallop around the playground on her own, pretending she was a horse. This is at too old an age for the rest of us to be doing this, think 14/15.

She got a medicine degree and is doing her surgical training at the moment. I bumped into her in a hospital after over a decade, alll I could think of to say was "do you still love horses?" She laughed and said she had her own horse now. Figures.

[–]SHTYCNTZ 6598 points6599 points  (148 children)

There was this pair of boys in the year above me in highschool who used to make dirt bike noises every where they went. Lasted months. You'd randomly hear them coming down the stairs. Bwaaa bwaarrt bwaaa!

[–]Impossible_Fold5059 6628 points6629 points 3 (102 children)

We had a kid at my school that we called Damian Lamborghini. He would rev like a car engine and pull his pants down and chase the girls. He ended up in the special Olympic for running.

[–]NoVaBurgher 3409 points3410 points  (30 children)

Damian Lamborghini sounds one of Roger’s personas from American Dad

[–]LongtimeLurker_93 1507 points1508 points  (38 children)

Does he still make car noises while running?

[–]USADave85 1219 points1220 points  (23 children)

Imagine getting passed by a guy making car noises...in the olympics.

[–]KayyJayy777 15.5k points15.5k points 4322& 4 more (89 children)

The list is endless but one incident sticks out in my mind. The boy was getting told off by the teacher and instead of taking it on the chin, he decided to jump on the table, shout "I'm out of here" and proceed to run full pelt into a steel beam that was supporting the roof. Knocked himself out cold. Was a fun lesson by all accounts.

[–]BlueLikeThunder 597 points598 points  (1 child)

shout "I'm out of here"

And by "here" he meant "this plane of existence."

[–]SuperAids00 2486 points2487 points  (6 children)

[–]amydee4103 22.8k points22.8k points 466 (260 children)

He “drove” around the basketball courts, following the lines, on an imaginary bus. He’d stop to let people get on/off the bus and then drive them to their stops and We walked in a line behind him

When he stopped walking he’d mimic the door opening and closing and wouldn’t let you on/off if you didn’t wait for the signal.

Salutations Ben the Bus Driver, I hope you achieved your dreams

EDIT: wow a lot of messages asking for more info.

To clear it up this was in Australia and he was between the ages of 8-13 when I knew him.

We all ‘got on the bus’ because when no one did he’d ‘drive’ around looking sad.

He did this all the time, not once and not sporadically. Any time he was outside he was imitating a bus driver.

[–]OnionRights 6592 points6593 points  (127 children)

Sounds like that one game in a gym where it was tag but you could only follow the painted lines

[–]wolff000 1283 points1284 points  (15 children)

In elementary school I was the weird kid. I stacked all the chairs in my classroom like a pyramid. I got away with this because my school opened up early to let kids in. We were supposed to be in the cafeteria. I know my class was left unlocked. Not the first time I snuck out of the cafeteria to look around unsupervised and get away from other people. It took me about 45 minutes, only like 15 kids in that class so not a lot of chairs. I thought it was the funniest thing ever at the time, everyone else did not. I still get a slight chuckle out of it, still kind of weird. I actually stacked lots of different things and often in places or into shapes they probably shouldn't be.

[–]MitchellCretan 16.5k points16.5k points  (152 children)

He once asked me to play spies with him. Knowing he didn’t play with many people, I said yes. He took me on a mission around the school, before coming to a stop in front of bushes, pulling his pants all the way down and then started peeing in the bushes. At that point I was out

[–]RedCr4cker 496 points497 points  (25 children)

What is the part you that you said you are out? Is it just the bush pissing, or is it the pants all the way down part?

[–]superflybowling 29.3k points29.3k points 3543& 8 more (383 children)

In 4th grade, one kid got so angry at something, maybe the work we were doing, he gripped his pencil as hard as he could, started yelling/moaning, and stuck the sharp end of the pencil square into his forehead.

[–]Chariesa 9408 points9409 points  (83 children)

He brought a blow up doll to our farewell dance (senior prom in the usa) as his date. Complete with fish nets and everything.

Edit: he was also wearing a kilt. We aren't from Scotland.

[–]SushiSuki 3512 points3513 points  (9 children)

he definitely got laid that night

[–]Zealousideal-Fix6809 194 points195 points  (2 children)

Least weird thing was she would blow her nose then eat it. Bigger weird things were running head first into a wall shouting that she's stupid if she didn't get the scores she wanted, another time running down the school field with teachers chasing while shouting "I'm a ghost", also announced she was pregnant because her boyfriend (who I don't know if was real) ejaculated (her words) on her knee. We always thought she had something going on and would tell the teachers something needed doing but apparently they'd talk to the parents who refused tests. It was actually kind of sad and people generally just felt a bit sorry for her.

[–]cuckedprincess 7261 points7262 points  (142 children)

You know how there’s horse girls? This girl was obsessed with babies.

Like being a mom or even acting like a baby. I already knew her as the weird girl. Then I got paired up with her for a semester as lab partners. Let me tell you she was so much weirder than I thought.

Constant questions about if I wanted to be a mom too and my body. She always had a pacifier with her, and would constantly chew or suck on it. She would switch between mommy days and baby days.

Like one day she would come in and act like a mother. Talk about her “baby” in extreme detail. Other days she would come in and just baby talk. It was so cringey.

Things got significantly worse when she found out I was a babysitter. After that she became obsessed with me.

[–]areyoukiddingmern 2036 points2037 points  (26 children)

I have to wonder if there was something going on at home. Maybe parentification? Maybe worse?

I dated the weird kid in high school and even a few years after and the weirdest thing he did was try to date his cousin...while we were together. He also ate grass and him and his friends would talk about the “flesh planet”. I hated my life back then

[–]TheStorMan 6252 points6253 points  (53 children)

Can't believe I couldn't get a date in high school.

What the ever living fuck is a 'flesh planet?'

[–]Sometimesitbelykedat 5991 points5992 points 2 (218 children)

I’m not sure if it was something they made up or something they found online or what, but it’s literally a planet made of flesh. Like everything is fleshy. I don’t remember the details like if there was any living organisms on the planet or anything because this was many years ago, but I thought it was the weirdest thing ever how they talked about it like it was a thing. I’m not sure if the planet was supposed to be alive or what, but they talked about it on more than one occasion. It’s not really surprising, because they smoked a lot of weed and did psychedelics. If you’ve ever played the game binding of Isacc, that’s about what I imagine it to be like, but they spoke about it before the game was announced let alone released.

This was in 96/97 we had a bomb threat and all had to go to the football stadium. One of the special ed kids that had downs started the Macarena and had the entire school going and then this one kid that dressed weird ran out on the field with his friend in front of everyone and they started kissing. This was 96/97 so it started a huge mess. People were trying to beat him up and the administrators had to take them away. Meanwhile there were still some people trying to keep the Macarena alive. Was a strange day

Edit Date* Had wrong date. Was my freshman year Link for proof Email number 4

We had one of those kids, we shared multiple classes but in art he showed the girl sitting next to him his dick and she called it small, he was destroyed and it was the funniest thing I can remember

[–]buttononmyback 630 points631 points  (10 children)

I guess that's the best way to respond to some pervy guy doing something like that to you in class.

[–]OmniWaffleGod 3814 points3815 points  (124 children)

This wasn't even a weird kid, actually one of the popular kids. But they took a self portrait one of the popular girls (and the most attractive from the grade) and took the self portrait of her to the bathroom where he gave the artwork a facial and then HUNG IT BACK UP. They eventually called in a bunch of teachers to investigate when the girl wanted to know what was on her paper, and eventually the security cameras saw the guy go into the bathroom with it. And it didn't take the teachers long to figure out what happened. He was only suspended for like 2 weeks

The weird kid in my school, who was also a friend of mine had really bad dry scalp during the winter months. He would vigorously rub his hair to get some relief from the itchiness and in the process would end up with lots of dead skin on his desk. One girl looked over as he was doing this and loudly said "Ewwww!" and he, wanting to make a statement, gathered up all the dead skin in a line-shaped pile and snorted it like it was a massive line of cocaine. He was kicked out of class.

She blew her nose into her hand and then licked it while looking me in the eyes. She actually wasn't too weird aside from that, I have no idea wtf it was. I just turned to the noise and saw that.

3rd grade. Whipped his dick out while we were sitting on the mat. Did not say anything just sat there as the teacher processed what was happening.

[–]rediitbuju 4031 points4032 points  (106 children)

How did it end? What did the teacher say? What was the reaction of the rest of the class?

I would like to know more about this

[–]Familiar_Paramedic_2 4168 points4169 points  (95 children)

This was quite a while ago. The kid's name was Scott and he collected coins. I don't remember the exact fallout but I think his parents were called in that day. He didn't get expelled though.

[–]fr_horn 7800 points7801 points 24 (62 children)

Interestingly enough this “weird kid” was actually really well liked by people at school. He was in the track team and was an insanely fast distance runner. We were pretty good friends in high school and we went to the same summer fine arts camp every year. The funniest thing he ever did was in geometry class freshman year. Our teacher was explaining planes to us and how because three points always form a plane a three legged table will never wobble. Cue the weird kid standing up: “Challenge accepted.” Next Monday he comes in dragging a giant table into class. Over the weekend, he had built a table with three legs and springs between the flat tabletop and the legs so that if you put a glass on it it would would wobble and fall over. Our teacher found it so funny that he kept the table in his classroom for the whole year.

[–]Jaiz15 15.1k points15.1k points 224 (138 children)

Ok so i had a kid at my school, not particularly bad but just annoyed the everything outta me, because i was the only one nice to him, he would follow me everywhere, randomly grab me for no reason, hug me and not give me any personal space,
But here comes the worst part. We have school swimming lessons, and you could either get changed in the change rooms or the toilets/ showers, since i am a shy person, i would always use the showers to get changed, figures he followed me in there, got dressed outside my door, and just when i was leaving my cubicle, he was just there, dancing naked. I died inside that day.

In 2021 being able to draw animal dick is economicly equivalent to a PhD or two.

[–]Independent_Can_2623 3596 points3597 points 2 (42 children)

I've almost finished my PhD and if I could draw fat throbbing cocks cannon balling hot cum I'd be making way more money

Dude I've never heard of the horse thing go so far. This is the 4th post I've seen about horsegirls.

My old art teacher told our class a bunch of stories about weird things kids did in her class through the years before she retired. Before she worked at our school, she worked as an English teacher at the juvenile court school. All of the kids there had issues, but there was this one kid who really stuck out to her.

She was assigned to teach him, but the catch was that he had to be in solitary in order to be taught. She was also told that he needed to be watched at all times because he ALWAYS tried to escape class (and usually was successful).

When she taught him, there was a guard posted at the door, the windows were locked and boarded up, and the door was kept locked. The only things in the room were his desk, his chair, and her desk, so that he couldn’t hide either (apparently he was also extremely good at that).

The first time she had to teach this kid, they were put in a solitary room, but it had a closet. The kid went missing, and about three hours later they found him taking a nap at the bottom of the closet (they missed him the first time they checked there).

ANOTHER time she had to teach him (this time the room did not have a closet, or any other visible places he could hide), she left the room for something (probably to go to the bathroom), and when she got back, the kid was gone. The guard was there the whole time, and the room was basically sealed—there was no way he could have gotten out. Once again, there were also no places he could really hide. The school went on a lockdown while they tried to find this kid.

About two hours pass, and they finally find the kid when he pushes away the paneling on the wall of the classroom and steps out to casually ask if he could go to the bathroom. This kid opened up the goddamn wall and climbed inside to hide, causing no one to be able to find him for HOURS.

Seems like this kid would be quite useful as a spy or some shit

[–]dankmemer2o18 793 points794 points  (0 children)

meet the spy and then this mf pops out of nowhere

[–]Derick_Ruhl 5353 points5354 points  (138 children)

In middle school there was this chick named Katie used to eat her panty strings in class. Like she would pull strings from the elastic part of them and eat it.

[–]FinalGamer14 18.1k points18.1k points 2523 (224 children)

There are two that come to my mind. It just so happens that they were also good friends with each other.

The first one I remember chasing girls around the school with his penis out (this was when we were pre teens). The second guy joined our class when we were early teens, and the two became best friends. One time, the teacher said something to the line of "the back table, out!", because they were annoying her, these two fucker decided to open the window and throw the table out.

Edit: when I say pre-teen I mean around 8 or 9. In my native language you become a teenager at 11, I sometimes forget that in english its 13 and up.

[–]prehistoric_humans 11.5k points11.5k points  (315 children)

Spoke elvish. On a daily basis.

[–]ipakookapi 7966 points7967 points 2 (182 children)

Oh, we had an Elf Kid at my school, too. His gear was pretty impressive tbh. All wool and leather.

He would climb onto high places and sit there and keep watch.

[–]DvDCover 1910 points1911 points  (41 children)

I could read and write the dwarven runes (as plain text) as a kid.

Speaking proper elvish would be a feat in itself though

[–]Psychonautic1 4753 points4754 points  (45 children)

On “prank day”, 3 of the weirdest kids in my high school stripped down to their boxers and greased themselves up and ran around for about an hour while the principles tried to tackle them

[–]gsfgf 551 points552 points  (1 child)

Did they write 1, 2, 4 on themselves like the greased pigs prank?

[–]I-refrence-your-mom 858 points859 points  (11 children)

He kicked his best friend in the chest for making him spill his Mountain Dew.

[–]camm44 21.6k points21.6k points 2 (188 children)

Ran out of the class and I guess attempted to leave school or something. A bunch of teachers chased him. I could hear running out in the halls and teachers asking where he went. The door to the class was closed but there was a window. Quite a bit later I look up and I see him at the little window and he just looks at us and licks the window and runs away again and I see a couple teachers run after.

[–]brownboyswag2 5139 points5140 points  (62 children)

Same thing happened to a kid I knew in elementary

[–]EggOnYoFace 3513 points3514 points  (48 children)

With the licking the window part and everything?

[–]Real_Mokola 3187 points3188 points  (30 children)

You gotta know if it tastes like what it looks like.

[–]ridiculouslycomplex 2774 points2775 points  (59 children)

He stabbed a friend’s hand with a compass. Barely missed the vein. We were in middle school.

[–]UndertaleDood 836 points837 points  (18 children)

He once had a tantrum and the teachers had to get all 29 kids out of the classroom to keep people safe from him. He also tried to give a guy that sat at the same table as me a wet willy in full view of the class and teacher.

[–]IlPrincipeKaoz 19.0k points19.0k points 2 (173 children)

That one kid once went for a poop. He collected it in a bottle, put milk on it and went back into the classroom with his bottle of "cocoa". He then proceeded to offer it to others. And to the teacher.

He is a senior physician now. Being weird did not harm him.

[–]iamdaletonight 8054 points8055 points  (18 children)

He was just practicing collecting fecal samples for his future medical endeavors.

[–]unhappymedium 830 points831 points  (25 children)

He was obsessed with Texas Chainsaw Massacre and said he'd shoot up the school if he could. We were vaguely afraid he'd go all Jason Vorhees on our asses. This was 10-15 years before Columbine so no one took him seriously and he never did come after everyone at summer camp or a reunion so we're probably safe.

[–]bagforlifefullofbees 834 points835 points  (10 children)

There's a kid in my college (16-18s in the UK) who walks around in all weather in a priests cassock, holding a black walking cane with a skull on it. It turns out he has a problem with his knees, so needs a cane, and figured he may as well go all in

[–]Xcasinonightzone 2563 points2564 points  (48 children)

He got a sweatpants boner in science class. Some girl pointed it out to the whole class and he tried to choke her out.

[–]Mini-Heart-Attack 933 points934 points  (0 children)

That sounds like a very typical middle school event

[–]Professional-Sand-16 10.3k points10.3k points 2 (234 children)

we had an unofficial Harry Potter fanclub in high school and Deathly hallows had just been released. Someone started this whole gossip/rumor that harry dies at the end which he actually does but of course a lot goes on after that which the fanclub didn't know about. One of the girls heard about it and tried to commit suicide by throwing herself off the third stored building. We all saw it and two of the male teachers had to get her off the window while she was screaming," If harry is dead, I have no purpose."

needless to say, she got suspended and the club was disbanded.

Edit: wow.. i didn't expect this much of response.

to answer some this isn't in US and it was a convent all girls school.

Edit2: Thank you so much for the awards.

also, for anyone if its a spoiler, you guys gotta be kidding me. Just get off the internet if you cant bear people talking about a movie which was released like a decade ago. Not anybody's fault other than yours.

[–]whoopi_wisdom 5643 points5644 points  (246 children)

He called in a fake bomb threat because he was bored. The police showed up and cuffed him in front of the whole classroom. He was suspended for 2 months, during which he had to sit in an empty classroom being watched by the principal herself.

He told me afterwards that she asked him all kinds of weird questions, like what poppers are and how they work. So I think the weird kid was out-weirded by the principal.

Edit: I'll add another anekdote because people seem intrigued by the story. A day or so before the bomb threat, he showed the class his disgusting, mouldy lunch box that had been lying in his desk for weeks. When the cops arrested him they searched his stuff including his desk. When they took out this lunchbox the whole class burst out laughing. The cops were very confused.

[–]100PercentNotAltAcc 1418 points1419 points  (195 children)

English isn't my first language so sorry if it's a dum question but what are poppers?

[–]billgatesfeetpics 2118 points2119 points  (143 children)

English is my first language and I still don't know what the fuck that is.

[–]kittywhipxx 7265 points7266 points  (95 children)

Had a kid who would take a piece of girls hair and pick it off their head then put it in a ring box and keep it for years.

[–]BansheeShriek 4106 points4107 points  (10 children)

I didn't think my face could get any more contorted this far down a thread.

[–]EnshaednCosplay 499 points500 points  (29 children)

If someone bothered him, he would screech at them. It was indescribable. Ear-splittingly loud and shrill, like a sound that no animal makes.

[–]GamingMechanic 2821 points2822 points  (45 children)

They weren't weird exactly but there was a girl who used to pick ear wax out and eat it, in class, during break, anytime she could get a finger near her ear really.

[–]john273 2702 points2703 points  (56 children)

We had a kid who liked to pretend he was an actual jedi. I remember one time before gym class he was meditating in the locker room when one of the big football players started to yell at him that he wasn’t a jedi. He was unflinching.

The saddest part...his last name was Bates which it didn’t take people long to call him master Bates.

I actually went to church with this kid and his senior year at a youth gathering he admitted to everyone that he wasn’t actually a jedi 🤦‍♂️

We were shocked 🙄

Edit: senior year in the US is about 17-18 years old typically.

[–]_whatthehell_iswater 354 points355 points  (6 children)

Omg idk why but the kid admitting he isn’t a Jedi made me sad. But like I know it’s what’s best, but a part of him died when he said that.

[–]The_Incredible_Honk 498 points499 points  (0 children)

If he did it right, he at least picked up a healthy meditation practice. Might be where his insight came from.

[–]qmanchoo 13.1k points13.1k points  (230 children)

This one kid wore cheap button down collar shirts to school every day, and he would only ever button the top button and let the shirt billow around him when he walked. He would stated that he was convinced by doing this every day it would catch on and he'd start a trend in the school and be popular. He was forever alone on that hill lol

[–]turtletails 6158 points6159 points 3 (42 children)

Did he wear something under the button down...?

[–]wewillwewont 762 points763 points  (27 children)

Planned world domination. He had a map with thorough plans on how to take down each country.

[–]Miss_Dingbat 2863 points2864 points 2 (14 children)

During my final exams I sat 2 seats in front and 2 seats to the side of the weird kid. I finished my paper with about 15 minutes to spare and absent mindedly looked around the room. My eyes landed on him. He had a Styrofoam cup sitting upside down on a pencil, like the pencil was wearing a hat. He was hitting the cup so it spun on the pencil. Meanwhile, he was silently screaming at it. And slightly headbanging. I think his mind was at a silent heavy metal concert.

A kid I grew up with started wearing home made chain mail to school our freshman year of high school. Every day. For all 4 years.

He was always pretty odd, but he was nice enough. Plus we had a few classes together thru middle school and we had connected over a shared love of a few videogames, so I felt comfortable asking him why he started wearing it all of the sudden.

He proceeded to explain the defensive benefits of chain mail vs. both sharp and blunt instruments of harm. For like 5 solid minutes. Daggers. Pikes. Hammers. Even how curved blades like katana and falchions would struggle against it!

I basically just shrugged and told him "I mean, makes sense." And we both went to our classes.

I don't know what I expected, but I guess it wasn't the basic defensive benefits that armor offers.

Edit: Wow, thank you all! This is a much more widespread phenomenon than I had thought! This all took place in Wyoming (before it ceased being) for all the people wondering if it was their own knightly scholar.

Edit 2: I believe he wore an undershirt, then armor and then an over shirt. The armor was about 55lbs (I think) and it had a full hood (widows peak and all) and sleeves. This was in the 2000's so school shootings were definitely a thing, but not quite a weekly event, yet (yay America!). Also, I'm not gonna say his name, like I said, he was always nice and I'm not about to dox an old homie. Plus Wyoming has like 35 people in it, so... yeah...

I also was not trying to shame him at all, I think it was way cool and creative. Like the thread may suggest, a little weird, but I absolutely applaud the ingenuity to craft it all himself, so I don't want anyone who reads this to think I was shaming or bullying.

If you want to make chainmail for school or work or church or whatever, hell yeah, lil homie, be your own beautiful self! All love on this end!

[–]pseudofreudo 2002 points2003 points  (34 children)

Did he wear it on top or did he make some effort to hide it underneath his normal clothes?

Edit: hide

[–]PiniataLad47 1532 points1533 points  (26 children)

I'm imagining him in full Gambeson and cracking up.

[–]249ba36000029bbe9749 1455 points1456 points  (31 children)

When that one crazy kid goes on a stabbing frenzy, chainmail kid will be the one laughing at everyone else.

[–]Saigonauticon 7301 points7302 points  (198 children)

Armor sounds like a pretty effective way to not get stabbed.

I wish I had thought of that in high school.

[–]RichardCity 17.1k points17.1k points 21429 (200 children)

At the local goth bar there is a guy who wears a chain mail muscle style shirt. Fantastic dancer. Raw foodist vegan. Very talented IV nurse. My aunt had lupus and knew him by name because of how good at putting her IVs in he was. He might be the nicest person I've ever met. He never drank when I was still going to goth night, and he would fill his truck with people at the end of the night and drop everyone off. He lost a friend to drunk driving, and I expect thats why he was so amazing about taking people home.

[–]andywithay 5038 points5039 points  (68 children)

It makes me really happy to think that people like this exist.

[–]rontubman 1477 points1478 points  (124 children)

To be honest, I would have done the same if I had a home made chainmail

[–]topanswerontheboard 3764 points3765 points  (67 children)

Brought in shot gun shells and had a list?

[–]danoramic 3303 points3304 points  (47 children)

Was he just gonna throw them at people? Not very useful without the shotgun IMO.

[–]Sinjohh 155 points156 points  (6 children)

I don’t know if they were the “weird kid” per se, but just someone I happened to encounter once in undergrad.

One of our dining halls had a station that you could make yourself waffles at, so it had a container with batter in it for you to use with these little plastic cups for you to fill up and pour into the waffle iron. This was on the same counter, right next to where the bagel station was, for reference.

So one morning in between classes I’m prepping a bagel for myself for breakfast, and there’s two girls at the waffle station at the same time. I happen to overhear part of their conversation where one of the girls said something to the effect of “people think I’m weird but I just don’t get why!” to her friend.

Now this would normally be a totally valid thing to say. However, the statement was undercut IMMEDIATELY by her filling up the aforementioned cup with batter and then proceeding to immediately drink the entire cup of batter like it was some sort of waffle flavored milkshake. And then continued her conversation like she didn’t just do the weirdest fucking thing I’ve ever seen.

It’s like 5 years later and I’m still in disbelief.

[–]jamesp420 146 points147 points  (2 children)

Had a girl that naruto-ran through the halls and hissed at people if they looked at her. She gave me and my friend the death glare from her bus window one day with that "finger across the throat" death threat motion. Idk what we did to her.

[–]Ferula-- 1236 points1237 points  (21 children)

I had a kid that was caught jerking it twice under a desk in history. He would also sometimes eat a whole raw onion and punched me in the face when I asked him why.

We also had a kid who was basically in a feud with a disabled kid a few years bellow us, don't worry though the disabled kid always won the confrontation because no-one would let him get hurt and he normally outsmarted the weird kid, very funny to watch

[–]areaunknown_ 3622 points3623 points  (51 children)

He carried a briefcase around and everyone was always weary of him. One day, my sister and I told him to open it. A crowd had started to form as he slowly opened the briefcase. Inside he carried a ventriloquist doll. It was super weird.

[–]mutantenzyme 20.0k points20.0k points  (231 children)

Impressively imitated the barking of a dog. Really sounded like a dog with a deep, fierce bark, not like a middle-school student.

[edited 12 hours later:] Thanks for the upvotes. I apologize if anyone was offended by my comment. Keep in mind that I am afraid of dogs. If you manage to sound *exactly* like a dog, then that will make me feel a little bit on edge (though it shouldn't).

[–]kathatesu 7799 points7800 points  (98 children)

One of the girls I was in treatment could do this AMAZINGLY. She could do high barks, low barks, anything. She could make it so you wake up to a dog fight and it's just her.

[–]Lemon_Licky_Nubs 4976 points4977 points 2 (87 children)

He didn’t do it in highschool. But in law school. Killed his classmate. Dismembered her in the bathtub. Every now and then I see him get traction on here for not moving during the interrogation.

Weird guy. Never thought he’d kill someone though.
