People Who Develop Photos Share The Craziest Pictures They've Ever Seen.

Remember when you had to go buy a disposable camera and get your photos developed by a stranger? Well, the people who used to do that developing haven't forgotten. Probably because they saw so many weird and crazy photos.

This piece is based on an AskReddit thread. Link on the last page.

1. I used to work on a cruise ship developing film. Some guy would get films sent from his wife that we would develop.

Some of them were pretty raunchy. We assumed she used a timer to take these. But in one set of shots there was a mirror in the background. We could see that the pictures were actually being taken by their 11 or 12-year-old son.



2. A guy comes in saying he wants to pick up his photos, so as usual we take his name and go to the drawer to look for them.

"Hmm, nothing there by that name" I say, "Perhaps another name?"

"No" he says, so I asked when he brought the film in to be developed.

"It was a disposable camera" says the guy. I say, "okay, so when did you bring in the camera to be developed?"


After a bit of toing and froing, turns out he took the term "disposable camera" literally, so threw it in the bin right after using it. When I asked him how he expected the photos to get to us from the bin, he said "I dunno, satellites or something?"



3. When I was about 16-17 I worked for CVS as a photo tech. I once had aroll that was a series of trophy pictures of naked women laying all inthe same bed. The problem is I knew some of them were definitely under 18 as I went to highschool with them. (continued...)

So Itold my manager she needed to take a look at this and she said when theguy came in that she wanted to talk to him. I called him, told him hisrolls were all set and when he came in she had cops waiting for him.



4. I develop film right now. We got my favorite thing recently.

Sowhen you look through a roll, you get some idea of a story. We got oneroll recently. Paris vacation, shots of the Eiffel Tower, and so on.Then guy snorting cocaine in his hotel room, then 3 shots later, it'shim in his underwear, in that same hotel room, holding a goat's head.The flash was on too, so the goat's eyes are glowing. No context,nothing. I love it.



5. I made some poor soul develop pics of me posed as Rose from The Titanic. Fully nude, jewelry and all.

I'm a dude.



6. Use to develop film from a prison. They'd give the inmates disposablecameras for some reason. I think they were instructed to take picturesof their friends so the inmates would reveal who's in what gang, idk.Any-who, between pictures of dudes making gang signs and posing ingroups there would be pictures of finger-paintings, which I thought waskind of sweet.



7. Iworked at a retail store that you could pick up your packs of photosfrom a large bin. Occasionally there would be a torn pack and a couplephotos would fall out between the inventory truck and the customerpickup bin.

Onesuch time, it was the photo index card that I found on the ground.Picked it up and looked at it. Showed a sequence of pictures: somegrandma's birthday party, kids playing, the (presumably) mom naked, themom and dude having sex, random family gathering and portraits, andthen a Thanksgiving.



8. Back in high school I worked at a photo lab. I come in one day, grab aroll, and start doing my thing just like I did every day. The firstroll I grabbed had the most convincing UFO pictures I had ever seen. (continued...)

Seriously.These photos looked real. There were even 2 or 3 with what appeared tobe an Alien in a field, again, like nothing I've ever seen. No Sci-fican compete with what I saw in those few pictures.


Not5 minutes later a man walks in asking for the photos I just developed.I hand them to him and he leans in real serious and asks me, "Did yalook at em?" I jokingly said, "Sir, I don't have time to look at halfthe pictures we develop." Then he paid me and left.


9. So my Aunt has a picture of her and her kids in front of their farmhouse. Unfortunately, she accidentally super-imposed the picture of hermother-in-law in her funeral casket so she was hovering in the skyabove her grandchildren. My cousin called it "Grandma Levitating," andmy Aunt had it in her house for years.



10. Neverworked with physical film other than to box it up to ship to Fujifilm,but a good part of my job right now is printing people's photo orders.Most of it is pretty boring and typical...occasional sexy selfies orthe guy with the BBW fetish.

Andthen there was the time a few weeks ago I printed a picture of a guylaying in the middle of the street, head blown off and brains strewneverywhere.


The kicker to me was that it was mixed in with otherinnocent pictures of kids and scenery...and then, suddenly, brains.


11. The best one was the dude who decided to take a picture of his penis ina hot dog bun (no, that is not an innuendo). He did not fill the bunout.



12. Had a guy drop off a roll of film that he said he found and had no idea what was on it. That's not exactly encouraging. I knew I had to take a look at this one. (continued...)

Keep reading on the next page!

Developed it and it was almost like a frame-by-frame of a couch in themiddle of a junkyard with two guys pouring gasoline on it and lightingit on fire. When he came to pick it up he was baffled, because he wasone of the guys in the photo but had no recollection of that day.



13. I work in a lab now. We have a guy who goes to places like Guatemala,following the death squads around, amazing photos, and that's like 75%of his rolls. The other 25% is kids playing soccer in the streetsthere. Equally amazing shots, great photographer, just kinda weird togo from scanning random vacation shots to pools of blood on the groundand then kids playing.


14. I worked on a photo desk in a supermarket for 3 years. The craziest oneI ever had was when a guy asked asked to print off his wedding picturesfrom his phone. He didn't realize he'd selected everything on there tobe printed, and ended up with a bunch of printouts of him getting it onwith another guy just before the wedding.



15. When I was in the Navy I had a disposable camera, now submariners arecrazy, so I left the camera in the sonar shack. Well when we pulledinto port I sent the camera off to my wife to develop. She told me thatthey wouldn't develop all the pictures, my shipmates had taken a bunchof pictures of their junk.



16. Back in the early 90s our grocery store developed film. One pic made nosense in the negative, but when printed produced a point of view shotof a guy having sex with a handbag. You could see all the miscellaneouspurse contents wrapped around his junk



17. I used to be a tech in a one hour photo lab, back when we still processed the film in the store.

Someyears back I had a customer bring in a couple of rolls of film and makeme promise to delete them from our machine's archives when they weredone. (continued...)

Theimages were from Sept. 11, 2001. This guy was there and took picturesof the towers as they burned, but waited nearly a decade to get themdeveloped. So I was the first and likely one of the few people who willever see those particular photos of that day. True to my word I nevershared them with anyone (yes, we do share crazy pictures with ourcoworkers), but I still remember them.

Makesyou wonder how many photos like that exist in the world. Unfortunatelyhe'd waited too long to develop them, so some of the pictures werelost, as negatives are sensitive and can easily be damaged over timedue to x-ray, heat, moisture, or light exposure.


18. Ihaven't personally experienced anything weird (other than seeing about1/3 of a dick in one pic), my lab manager has told me though that he'sseen some weird shit in his day.

Onetime he had a woman develop some photos, which included shots of her inlingerie. After the photos were developed and handed to her, the womanasks my manager, in a kind of embarrassed voice, "did you see any ofthe photos?" After saying he did, she leaned in a little close andwhispered "...did you like them?"



19. We had a client who always brought rolls of what looked like mediocrequality nude model pics. Not the girls, but the photographic quality.They were on a basic white background. They were the formulaic poses,and the girls didn't look particularly stoked to be there.


One day, hebrings three rolls in and we get to developing. It's myself and myfriend in the shop at the time and I was on the printer. The threerolls were of two women, a bunch of individual pics, and some together.Their demeanor seemed to go downhill as their state of undressincreased; smiling to sad to almost blank.

I got a bad feeling andshowed my friend. She said she'd developed some the others the previousday that looked off too. Luckily he hadn't picked them up when hedropped these off. The girls looked drugged. We immediately called thecops (it was a one hour job.) Luckily, they got there before he did.

Our boss was pissed that we breached client confidentiality. When thearticle came out three days later that he'd drug girls, photographthem, and then sexually molest them (including some who were 15 and16,) I felt vindicated. And guilty that I hadn't paid more attentionbefore.

20. Iworked at a camera store in my high schools and college days, and wehad a photo lab in the back... It was a college town and so there wereplenty of photos of young adults exploring their sexuality, etc. Inever saw anything that I considered inappropriate. We did have acardboard cover for the machine output hopper so that people wouldn'tsee any photos of nudity and get upset.

However,the most memorable images I remember printing were from 1989, from theTienanmen Square riots. You know, the man holding up the line of tanks(The Tank Man)? And the 200+ people who were killed? It was a big dealin world at that time, and especially in college towns for a fewreasons.

First,the protesters were mostly college-aged Chinese. Second, there were alot of Chinese grad students on campuses in the US, and they feltdeeply impacted by this. Many knew people protesting in China.

Wehad students coming into the store with photos they took off the TVscreen so they could reproduce them in the hundreds to send back toChina to circumvent the regime's oppressive control of the media.

I'll never forget those events, and the students desire to do their part, even through they were 1/2 the world away.



21. There was onesuper sleazy guy who used to come in and print photos on the instantkiosks. Most of the pictures he printed were girls of questionablelegality, posing but not nude. He claimed to be a photographer, but hewas gross and gave off a really creepy vibe. I showed my manager a fewof the pictures he happened to leave behind one day and got him bannedfrom our photo lab, but there was nothing else we could do about it.

Byand large though, most photos weren't all that memorable. 99% of peoplesuck at taking pictures. My least favorites were those disposablecameras people would leave on the tables at wedding receptions.


Guaranteed I'd spend an entire night developing 30 rolls of absolutegarbo pictures, so boring. Those and underwater disposables, totalwaste of money, but at least they were fun to pop open. I used to seehow far I could get the little plastic shutter to launch across the lab.



Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like


My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

- shicole3



I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold


Whether Albert Einstein or Arnold Schwarzenegger would be more useful to have around during a Zombie apocalypse. How on earth would Albert Einstein come in handy!?

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.

I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.

An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence


How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

Me and my friend were drinking underage, we ended up in an argument of whether lightning McQueen's eyes were blue or green. Somehow throughout the whole thing both of us never thought to straight up google a picture.

Andre 2000?


I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)

The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.


Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.

I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.


Balloon to Heaven

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky. He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space.

And he got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.


Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.



Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.




3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.


Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.


Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.


Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.



My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.



How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).

How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.


Dogs and Chocolate


I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.


Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.


Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.


Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.


Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.


Stars In Their Multitude


I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.



My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.


Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.


Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...


Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
