1634 ThePedoHunter In 7th grade science during the genetics lesson, I asked if a white flower and a red one could make a pink one. The teacher told me that was absolutely impossible and that they could only make either white or red offspring. A few years later, I learn about incomplete dominance and feel so betrayed.
817 Octopuswiggles College chemistry professor told us that if you keep the cotton ball in the aspirin bottle, the aspirin will not upset your stomach. Something to do with keeping it dry so it doesn't get acidic? But it's bullshit because aspirin upsets your stomach by blocking the protective prostaglandins.
752 autmnleighhh That you weren’t allowed to use pencil in college and also that the only ink color accepted by professors were blue and black.

877 Virgini-tea My first grade teacher told me that hummingbirds didn't exist. Apparently she thought there was only hummingbird moths, no actual birds. I ended up arguing with her over it and came home crying about it. My mom called her the next day to explain that hummingbirds are in fact real, and to please not talk about it with me anymore.
442 freckleface2113 I was taught by a science teacher (at a Catholic School) that men have one less rib than women. She said it was proof that God made woman from man.
2014 Nigelpennyworth Teacher told me that no one would ever pay me to stare out a window. I drove semi trucks for six years, she was wrong.
1433 ObsceneGlabella In Prep, I was told that all rhyming words shared at least one letter, and even then I just knew that this was wrong, but it stuck in my mind. I never forgot it and after a three year search, I found the words: too and due.
545 Grrrr1977 Sometime in the 80's..... our school got our first computers. One teacher told us if we don't switch off the whole machine properly after use it will melt like an ice cream....
646 ReverseSasquatch I was told that men cannot ejaculate while they're erect by a PE teacher.... Total lies!

1046 oth_radar In elementary, I was told by one of my gradeschool teachers with a personal vendetta against me that I had ADHD. She didn't like me for some reason, and there were previous incidents to prove this (throwing my personal items in the trash, literally screaming at me during lessons, and so forth). This culminated in a few visits to the school psychologist, who also diagnosed me with ADHD and recommended that I immediately get placed on medication. She called my parents to have a meeting about it. I was doing fine in school. I had all As, I blew all the standardized tests out of the water. I was bullied a bit and I would sometimes speak up in class about what other kids were doing or saying to me, but otherwise I wasn't too disruptive. Sometimes when I finished my work early I would tap my pencil on the table or doodle because I was bored. Otherwise, nothing doing. My Mom and Dad, of course, fight it. The school teacher and psychologist set up a meeting, where they've got basically every drug from Ritalin on up sitting on the counter, telling my parents why I needed to be on the drug and that "therapy and CBT don't work so we should just get the drugs." My parents want a second opinion, so they take me to a specialist. The guy basically says that there's no way in hell I have ADHD, he's seen plenty of kids with it and he's absolutely certain I don't have it. Gives me StarCraft to play when I get bored and sends me home with a clean bill of health. I never got put on drugs and I'm so glad for it - I'm a functioning member of society and I definitely don't have ADHD. **TL;DR**: Teacher told me I had ADHD and tried to put me on drugs, was just trying to get back at me because she didn't like me. **Edit**: [No, my therapist didn't give me cock and ball torture](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_behavioral_therapy?wprov=sfla1).
482 FireBloom Economics class in 12th grade of high school. Year 2006. My teacher spent half the semester talking about how it's the best idea to invest in real estate. Edit: I should clarify, he was specifically talking about flipping houses.
