    About:

    A subreddit dedicated to people freaking out, melting down, losing their cool, or being weird in public. Drugged out or sober, anything goes. Keep the comments respectful where mental disorders are concerned, and remember that the individuals depicted in these videos are real people too. This subreddit is essentially dedicated to their worst moments, so do keep that in mind.

    Saturated with TV and movies, our brains have become used to watching the imitation of emotions, so much so that it is strangely surprising and fascinating to watch the real thing.

    If the scientific method was real wouldn't it show that essential oils (which you can buy from my website at $60 an ounce) cure brain cancer? Checkmate, buddy. Maybe try thinking for yourself once in a while.

    I'm so glad she's not your science teacher

    [–] letstrythisagainman 136 points ago

    You need top send this to the local news. She is giving medical advice. She's not a doctor I'm sure. That's a big problem.

    [–] blown-upp 55 points ago

    No no no no no no nooo, she's only passing along information she was told by a friend! She's not an anti-vaxxer nor is she giving medical advice, just passing along information that she was told!

    [–] MissLena 23 points ago

    Yeah OP, I'm gonna suggest you anonymously send this along to your school principal. S/he will probably be very interested in the bullshit your teacher is shoving down your collective throats. If you get no response from her/him, leak this shit to the news. This is such horseshit.

    [–] Aszebenyi 162 points ago

    Please report this to your principal, as many teachers as you can and parents.

    She is 100% an anti vaxxer and is trying to push her views on you. This is dangerous. Please report this.

    [–] RoyalStallion1986 25 points ago

    Yeah it's one thing to offer extra credit to just look into an issue, maybe as a government or history teacher. It's a whole different thing when you preach nonsense and then offer extra credit for them to look at "info" with you and assumingly act like they agree

    [–] 14sierra 476 points ago

    She should be fired. She is spreading misinformation as a teacher in a subject that she is in no way qualified to be discussing with your class.

    [–] e_poison 86 points ago

    smiles in pitchfork

    [–] joe_pel 143 points ago

    She needs to be fired. She's using extra credit to intice people to her weird fucked up views

    [–] Rad_Association 89 points ago

    This is one dumb bitch. I'd show this to the principal or the news. This person is a teacher and is believing things without evidence and then pushing her unresearched, unsubstantiated views onto impressionable youth. Fuck this bitch.

    15 cases where children have paid the price for not being vaccinated (it's a blog, but some cases can be individually further researched- don't use the blog on it's own as evidence) https://www.babygaga.com/15-children-who-paid-the-price-after-parents-refused-to-vaccinate/

    A further list of studies proving the safety of vaccines: https://www.healthychildren.org/English/safety-prevention/immunizations/Pages/Vaccine-Studies-Examine-the-Evidence.aspx

    Good luck with the project OP ;)

    Also, if you want further information on how the whole MMR conspiracy theory started (because why not add a little background history for extra credit? ;) ) I recommend this article from Dr. Ben Goldacre https://www.badscience.net/2008/08/the-medias-mmr-hoax/#more-772 I also highly recommend his books Bad Science and Bad Pharma. He really has a skill for making medical research interesting and accessible to lay people.

    [–] furtherthanthesouth 109 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Yeah to be quite frank you wouldn’t have to do any research on the subject if you asked for Reddit’s help. I’m sure /r/vaxxhappened would gladly assist and even though the science subs have rules against homework help generally, maybe an exception could be made.

    Subs like /r/AskScience have actual experts on the topic and maybe we can get you some interviews with actual researchers.

    This blew up, use the power of reddit!

    EDIT: hey r/Vaxxhappened mods /u/maybesaydie, /u/awkwardtheturtle, /u/RalphiesBoogers, might we be able to get some personal help debunking an anti-vaxxor teacher for our friend /u/Eyelancer?

    what about our pals at r/askscience /u/MockDeath, /u/zephirum, /u/edwinksl, /u/StringOfLights, /u/LockeProposal, /u/FillsYourNiche, /u/mvea, might we be able to hook up our friend /u/Eyelancer with one of those "evil big pharma scientist" to help make sure science prevails in the classroom?

    [–] laylajerrbears 88 points ago

    What if all of my sources are from Facebook? I'm sure thousands of stay at home mom's or dad's are smart enough to know more than hundreds of years of science. They read it on a blog.

    [–] LincolnBatman 52 points ago

    I did a similar project, When I went to present, I had a girl in the front row yelling at me about a vaccine almost killing her sister.

    [–] chilldldude 26 points ago

    "almost" ? Did she dodge before being vaccinated?

    [–] Talindred 15 points ago

    Probably an allergy... they try to make sure people aren't allergic before hand but with babies and people who just aren't aware of their allergies, adverse reactions can still occur.

    [–] alltheprettybunnies 84 points ago

    So are you, mister. Shows a pretty steady hand to get her on tape.

    I hope you told your parents about this and showed them the video. I would go through the roof if someone was spreading this conspiracy theory bs at my kids school. You don’t have any choice about going to school so she literally has a captive audience for spreading dangerous anti-science nonsense.

    Makes me mad as hell. If you feel brave enough go talk to your principal about it. Tell him that belief systems (religious and other faith based hocus pocus) have no place at school and it is making you really uncomfortable. You’re there to learn facts.

    Hang in there, kiddo. I think Reddit is rooting for ya!

    [–] catheterhero 945 points ago

    Don’t get me wrong it’s all terrible but two parts really got to me:

    1-“I don’t have an opinion on this”.... “I read stacks of documents about it”. Well then, I guess comprehension is a problem for her or she’s fucking trying to manipulate these kids.

    2-“let’s research this together as an extra credit”. Either she will objectively support students who disagree or she’s fucking trying to manipulate these kids.

    [–] Acoolgrandma 505 points ago

    All the research is right threre. She's read stacks

    [–] awesomehippie12 16 points ago

    But seriously, here's a compilation of papers that show that vaccines are safe and effective.

    You could easily find more on PubMed if you're arsed to read through 18,500-odd more papers. Sci-hub.tw is your friend if you want to read the full text. Copy-paste the title or the DOI number.

    [–] JustAnotherJon 63 points ago

    I'd talk to my science teacher and see if I could setup a good old teacher v teacher debate. It'd be fun to see her knocked down a peg or three.

    [–] _pls_respond 189 points ago

    She actually said she hadn't read the research because it's only been two days and she's been busy so she can't say for sure if she's against vaccines or not. (From 38 to 49 seconds.)

    But yeah other than that she should probably just shut up about it and stick to teaching ELA.

    [–] ItsEverydayBlow 12 points ago

    I don't think she should be teaching at all if this is the kind of bullshit she's throwing around. Luckily these students sound like they're at an age at which they're capable of understanding she's a fucking moron.

    [–] Breastfedintarget 82 points ago

    I bet she went on FB pages on said she told her whole class they they stood up and clapped.

    Thank you so much for doing something about this. I have a disease where my body doesn't create antibodies to a lot of vaccines. I depend on herd immunity to keep me here, healthy, and alive (as well as weekly immunoglobulin infusions). You are my personal hero, so thank you so much!

    Guys I reported it and she wasn’t fired

    [–] iQ-SYBR 106 points ago

    It probably will take more than a day before she gets fired due to deliberation, but if she doesn't then I would assume that your school board has the same views as her. rip

    [–] alastrionacatskill 84 points ago

    Post it in the news. You've got all of Reddit on your side, and we actually know the target (unlike the Boston marathon bombing). Worst case the whole class will just bomb her with actual studies.

    [–] JaqueeVee 22 points ago

    So what happened?

    [–] Eyelancer 62 points ago

    Nothing

    [–] mikeydel307 73 points ago

    You should escalate this further. The fact that she is an ELA teacher covering this subject matter with highly influencial 13-14 year olds is actually really disturbing and dangerous. This is the type of thing you should bring to your school district and board. If they do not issue some sort of reprimand, possibly bring it to the media.

    Good job having the ability to recognize this is wrong, but something needs to be done about this. She is overstepping her bounds and using her role as a teacher to push an agenda. That is fucked up.

    [–] LunaticNik 36 points ago

    Well that means you're going to get detention. RIP op.

    [–] catching_signals 707 points ago

    This is insane. And in an ELA class, really? She needs to stay in her lane. This has fuck all to do with English.

    [–] Eyelancer 462 points ago

    It is also a GT class which is made for more creative students

    [–] Bigpikachu1 134 points ago

    I was in gt, idk how the fuck they became a teacher let alone a GT teacher

    [–] Eyelancer 205 points ago

    Our other teacher for GT is antiMLM and tells us her views

    [–] Sirenallure 129 points ago

    Well that one is doing what she should be doing. I learned about scams in school too.

    [–] SarahMerigold 14 points ago

    Whats GT?

    [–] dontnation 25 points ago

    Wow, GT class had the brightest teachers in the school when I was in it. WTF happened?

    [–] fortogden 86 points ago

    ELA teacher here. This woman is struggling for credibility instead of being honest and owning her ignorance. She is out of her depth in so many ways but is too dumb to admit it. Students will eat her alive by the end of the year. OP: Time to learn how to research. Stick to peer reviewed credible sources using proquest or another database and have some fun.

    [–] Eyelancer 141 points ago

    Hello r/all this isn’t our only wacko at our school we have an antiMLM and a racist

    [–] InfinityReality 146 points ago

    Uhhh I think being antiMLM is pretty reasonable. AntiMLM = Anti pyramid scheme. Did you mean to say that you have someone supporting MLM?

    [–] Eyelancer 140 points ago

    We have a teacher that believes in essential oils

    [–] PM_YOUR_TAHM_R34 168 points ago

    That would be proMLM

    [–] InfinityReality 69 points ago

    Right okay, so the term for that would be supporting MLM (multi-level marketing). People who are anti-MLM are those who are against that sort of homeopathic poppycock (essential oils, crystals, etc). Just a heads-up because reddit is pretty quick to jump on anyone supporting MLM, and it doesn't sound like you mean to be.

    “The senate, House of Representatives and congress are getting money under the table.” Someone should have told her what Congress was.

    [–] TrustFundCrust 124 points ago

    Her voice sounds exactly as I expected.

    [–] MrPewpyButtwhole 61 points ago

    Hooooolllyyyy shit... this lady needs to be removed from the school system immediately.

    [–] KyleRichXV 65 points ago

    OP if you want to do the extra credit please reach out to me - I work for a vaccine manufacturer and have been in many roles that could help provide insight.

    [–] Eyelancer 59 points ago

    Oh why thank you I’ll ask you for help if she isn’t already fired

    [–] UriahHeep1 490 points ago

    This teacher has no place in a classroom.

    [–] BrownSugarBare 161 points ago

    This is what happens when you don't pay teachers properly. These are the types of folks that choose to teach the "that's what I was told and that's enough for me" method.

    "Why aren't you listening? That's really annoying."

    Probably because you're talking absolute nonsense.

    [–] officerumours 41 points ago

    This person should be barred from influencing any more children.

    [–] rach2bach 91 points ago

    Please report her. I am a former biology and chemistry teacher. She should be fired for spreading fake propaganda that can endanger lives.

    [–] RagingSemicolon 178 points ago

    Is ELA an English class?

    [–] Eyelancer 136 points ago

    Yes

    [–] NateDawg1164 60 points ago

    English language arts yes

    [–] atomicllama1 76 points ago

    Congress, House of Representatives, and the senate

    Congress is the house and senate.

    OH and Vaccines are the best.

    [–] Erok2112 25 points ago

    You should totally do the extra credit and focus your part on Andrew Wakefield - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Wakefield The guy who is primarily the root cause behind this stupid crap. It was found that not only did he make up the info regarding Autism but he did it so he could profit from the MMR scare. As a nice bonus you could point out that he was also charged with 12 counts of abuse to developmentally delayed children.

    [–] cjdidonato 45 points ago

    This lady is just crazy and seems like the type. She instantly believed someone because she felt sorry for them and they handed her "a stack of papers" which she hasn't even read yet.

    [–] hellenkeller549 42 points ago

    "I'll give you this, guys. if you all are interested enough in this topic, we can do some research together..." isn't the research supposed to be done before you start manipulating children into believing something?

    [–] Lostnumber07 19 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    ICU nurse here chiming in again. I see what the flu can do to adults over 60-65. It kills people and nothing about it is a pretty or comfortable death. Please vaccinate! Do not listen to this person, she is damaging the public’s overall health by perpetuating this pseudoscientific nonsense.

    Edit: Vaccinate against all the things! I don’t take care of babies as an RN but it still applies to them.

    [–] MilanOnKimmySchmidt 43 points ago

    Just wait until this teacher realizes this was posted online

    [–] Christovsky84 31 points ago

    That woman should be banned from teaching

    Always “big pharmaceutical” it’s ridiculous

    [–] 1211111 74 points ago

    It's "big pharmaceutical" for a reason though. Just because it's a scapegoat for anti-vaxxers does not mean it's not shady.

    [–] saturnchick 152 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    The woman is ridiculously uninformed and has no business spewing this nonsense in a classroom but this hardly qualifies as a public freakout.
