Teachers who are interested in history, like history teachers, are likely to have a bunch of things around the classroom that talk about history or look historical in some way. Posters about important events, famous photographs, and more. One teacher figured that a fun addition would be a bunch of Pez-dispenser presidents, which have already collected names such as the Pezidents.

However, just based on the first three, we’re going to assume that they are the fourth and fifth presidents, James Madison and James Monroe. Having looked at pictures of the men, that seems to be the case.
It’s Just a Clock...Oh
At first glance, this seems to be a normal clock. But even if you don’t see what’s wrong with it right away, something in your brain probably told you that there was a detail or two off. You had to take another look before you realized what was wrong with it. We’re told that the clock also runs counterclockwise, which is a little aggravating honestly.

And that’s usually a good thing to try to do every once in a while to improve your brain elasticity – do things backward, or with your non-dominant hand, or something like that. Keeps you tough.
Things to Say About Modern Music
The band Imagine Dragons was famous for a little while, but it wasn’t long before public perception of them began to twist. The songs that had dominated the airwaves and the top forty were dropped from the rotation. They might not have become the new Nickelback, but they seem to be heading in that direction.
https://www.reddit.com/r/mildlyinteresting/comments/njlfnb/my_science_teachers_trash_bin/ A band that is inexplicably popular despite having a lot of songs that people can’t stand. Well, one science teacher is being clear about how he or she feels toward the band. It’s not even that they go IN the trash, they are and contain all other varieties of trash. Harsh. But fair. Sometimes you just have to be brave with what you say, like not enjoying a band that is really popular.
When Teachers Go Bad
A good, kind, and right teacher will keep all the markers at the bottom of the whiteboard, where they won’t fall over. But some teachers would rather be bad boys. They’d rather buck the rules and make it hard to pay attention to the lesson of the day because all the students are waiting for the markers to tumble to the floor with a crash.
https://www.reddit.com/r/mildlyinteresting/comments/ewr1iv/the_way_my_teacher_stacked_her_expo_markers_today/ Will the teacher even notice? Will he or she just keep teaching like nothing happened? Maybe the teacher doesn’t even know that happened – maybe some tricky student set it up like that to give the teacher a scare when the tower of color finally collapses under its own weight. Maybe the markers wanted to rise up like the Kobe Bryant quote is telling them to do.
How to Get the Kids Interested
Pokemon has been one of the most popular IPs the world has ever seen since the first game came out in 1996. There are people in their thirties or even forties who grew up with it at least a little bit. Catching monsters and pitting them against each other to become the best in the world.
https://www.reddit.com/r/mildlyinteresting/comments/lnubju/my_teacher_made_pok%C3%A9mon_animal_type_of_cards_for/ Kids these days still love the little guys, and one teacher used that to teach his or her students about animals such as the coyote. You might not be able to play with them, but collecting them is still pretty cool for a lot of the kids. Will they be upset when they find out that there are no real electric mice unless they get into the wires behind the walls? Maybe.
