A very-painful-to-watch video of a teacher getting his genitals hit by an axe during a physics class demonstration has gone viral.
In the video, the teacher can be seen holding a concrete block placed on a plan embedded with nails over his chest … and another man with the axe standing over him. According to what one student in the class said on Reddit, the teacher was trying to demonstrate how force is distributed on an area:
The concrete block is placed on a bed of sharp ass nails. The force is distributed across all the nails and thus the individual pressure from each nail is minuscule does not cause any damage to the teacher under the bed of nails.
He was just fine – it was a graze – not a full on partitioning. The person holding the axe is a member of staff (either an assistant principal or a hall monitor) that we asked to come help with the demonstration.
The teacher walked funny for like a couple of days and then he was just fine.
AP Physics I is fun because of stupid things like this happening.
It was initially believed that the axe swinger was the teacher, and that he was fired after hitting his student in the groin in a class stunt gone wrong. But this just turned out to be a case of a teacher who is willing to risk it all so that his students can learn.
Not sure if ENTmania! will go that far though.
