HEAD OF THE CLASS

WATCH: College Professor Strips, Shows 9/11 Footage To Explain Quantum Mechanics

A Columbia University science professor wanted to shake up his students—but rather than have them stand on their desks, Dead Poet Society-style, he stripped down to his underwear and screened September 11th footage.

According to WPIX 11, the professor told the class, “You have to strip to your raw [self] and erase all the garbage from your brain when studying quantum mechanics.”

We’re guessing he’s got tenure.

    I wish my professors did this when I was in college. Would have woken me right up.

    He’s just vain and wanted to show off.

    To funny, what a cool teacher, at least for college students. I don’t think that would fly in any of the lower education levels. LOL

    @Chad Hunt: Wow, you sound like a total moron. “LOL”

  • Red Meat

    @TinoTurner: LOL

    @TinoTurner: exactly what was moronic about my statement:

    “To funny, what a cool teacher, at least for college students. I don’t think that would fly in any of the lower education levels. LOL”

    It would be funny to see your college professor strip as evidence by the video and his class laughing. Coming up with innovative, controversial, non-conformist teaching practices does make a teacher cool, and it certainly would not have been tolerated on lower education teaching levels (High, Middle, Elementary Schools). So before you stoop to ad hominem rhetoric I suggest you come up with a better response to look at all intelligent.

    @Chad Hunt: I will illustrate your stupidity.
    1. Its “too funny”…not to funny
    2. You wasting your time by saying “I don’t think it would fly with lower level..” is
    a little obvious, no?
    3. You typed “LOL” which is a crutch for the stupid

    @TinoTurner: actually, name calling, and resorting to ad hominem attacks is a crutch for those who have nothing intelligent to say but seek attention by being as offensive as possible. i.e. internet trollers which obviously you are.

    My first thought was how limited the teacher’s creativity level would have to be to resort to stripping for attention, or shock value. But then I realized it’s a Quantum Mechanics class and decided to give him an A for effort :)
