The after-school children were out on the playground as I was leaving the other day...

Child 1: I choose you! Charmander!
Child 2: I choose you! Boba Fett!
Child 1: Hey, Boba Fett isn't a Pokemon.
Child 2: He sounds like one.
{beat}
Child 1: [shrugs] Good point.
Child 2: (in the bulbasaur voice) BOBBBAAAAA FETTTTTTT!!!!

Quite possibly best crossover ever :)

I quite enjoyed that thought. I used to watch Pokémon in the morning before school and when the whatever-generation series was when the male guy from Team Rocket had that bluish blob thing that saluted and said its name, I always used to think that it said, "BO___BBA FE____TT!!"

I was feeling cheeky near the end of my chem final, so I wrote "Got mole problems? Call Avogadro at 602-1023!" on the last page of my final exam.
I wonder if my professor saw it...or if my final has even been graded yet.

I work in the science department at my university. My chem lab professor asked me to get a bottle of hexanes. I said, "You want me to get those out of Dodo or Fozzi (our flammable cabinets have names)?" she said, "did the organics make you ins-ane?" I replied back- "We'll see how insane I am when we get to organic chem."
courage is about knowing when to pick yourself up and whisper to yourself, "I will try again tomorrow"

This gem provided by a ditz after the teacher had been lecturing on Manfred von Richthofen, also known as the Red Baron, and his skills as a fighter ace for Germany during WW1:

Dumb Ditz: So, was the Red Baron Italian? Because pizza is Italian and there's Red Baron pizza.

During our Constitutional Law final, half of which was taken from the BAR exam. Room is silent:

Girl in the front of class: AAAAHHHH!!! This is really hard!!
Me and my frat brother in the back on opposite sides of the room: That's what she said

While in Geo, we were watching a movie, and I'm afraid that this could go in both Student and Teacher Quotes, but here seemed more appropriate. I'm also afraid I'm self- quoting...

Narrator: While the crown of the Rainforest Hornbill looks very heavy, it is not. This is because it is filled with empty, honeycomb-like cells...

Teacher: Much like your head [me].

I waited and let him have his laugh.

Me: Yes, but that's because they're not being filled by your teaching.

We were learning about the Soviet Union a few years back. Our teacher always picked on dozing people so she called on a student who was barely awake.
Teacher: "Rodney, what is 'glasnost'?"
Rodney: It's... that frosty stuff you get when you press your nose to glass."

For a few days afterwards, everyone asked him what glasnost was.

One of the biology teachers at my high school was teaching his class Punnett squares. One of the students asked, not realizing what it would sound like, "Does it matter whether the mom or the dad is on top?"

The teacher had to excuse himself for a minute.

A student who I was talking with earlier today: "I don't think the earth is even 1 light year old"

To be fair he did catch himself shortly after saying that.

One of my fellow students in Sociology class said that the law should require gay people to be shot and killed (he's a homophobe).

I said he was gay to and I could prove it. The convo went something like this:

Oh there are so many...
Here are a few from my chem and AP chem classes (note the teacher is very obviously German):

"I did it right, just not correctly"

Teacher: "In what state is water below 0 degrees Celsius"
Student: "Alaska"

Student: (calling over teacher and whispering)"Mr. Konig, Mr. Konig. Can you tell me what the element tornobium looks like?"
Teacher: "That's not a real element"
Student: "I know. But if it were, what would it look like?"

Student: "Do they have electricity in Germany?"

Student: (during a particularly difficult monday morning class) "I think we're just too tired to understand this. I bet if we blew something up we'd be more awake."
Student 2: "It doesn't even have to chemistry related. Just burn a newspaper or something."

Our school does this thing where we're partnered with a school in Turkey. Now all the Turkish kids are at least bilingual, they speak both Turkish and pretty good English. Twice a year they send some of their students down here for a week or so to experience Florida and we also send some of our students up there to experience Turkey. Each Turkish kid has a host whom they attend classes and go home with. One of the kids in my AP Physics class was hosting a Turkish guy so he was in class with us.

Student 1: *says something in Turkish*
Student 2: (to Turkish student) What did he say?
Turk: (translating) Uh, "I don't speak very good turkish."
Student 2: Well then, what do you speak? Well?"

Most of mine are all from the same guy:
But, where did this get in here?
After a lengthy explanation of of the schedule of the school ski trip:
This is kind of off topic, but where's the fruits?
Also, in the middle of class, with no explanation, he turns to a guy in our class and says:
Eric, you're such a dildo.
With no emotion in his voice. Our teacher just sat there looking confused.
Also, someone else asked "Is new France in France?
To make it worse, it was Canadian history class.

Actually, wouldn't the average distance also change? I mean, obviously it won't change by much, but there other forces on Earth. than the Sun, and though they don't add up to much, they technically do affect the Earth.

So in Theory of Complex Variables today we were evaluating real integrals using complex integrals. We were evaluating dx/(1+x^3) from 0 to infinity by using 1/3 of a circle. Students were doing the problems on the board, and they were having trouble figuring out the integral along the theta=e^(2*pi/3) part.

Bryce: "You can assume that theta's constant."
Me:"Because it is."
Everyone: Bursts into laughter.

We were doing substitution in algebra, and the teacher says "Now what can we substitute in thsi equation?" My friend, in complete seriousness, said "We could substitute x for y." The whole class looked at him in bewilderment, and it took him him several seconds of thought before he realized what a futile operation this would be. All he then said was "Oh...wait...".

Not sure if it's a qoute but:
In class one day, I found out that the guy next to me had played Portal. We decided to wait for the room to get quiet. We then began to "doo" 'Still Alive' while everyone watched and giggled. Quite a bit of fun and totally worth the stern talking-to that we got after class.

When I was passing the seminar on class field theory:
Me: "this is finite, since b is has no value almost everywhere." (At this point, I just burst out laughing uncontrollably).

I had this years ago in an english class in high school...

Teacher: "Peter makes Jane a sandwich. Is this grammatically correct?"
Female Student: "Doesn't matter it's wrong no matter what."
Teacher: "What do you mean?"
Female Student: "It should be, 'Jane makes Peter a sandwich.'"
*Silence*

The student ended up getting suspended for the "sexist" comment.

Also, the Sun loses mass (E=mc^2, it gives off energy, therefore it is losing mass), that will affect the gravitational power it can exert on the planets (it's not going to push them away or anything, but it's power to keep them locked in their orbit will very slowly weaken).

Why sexist in quotes? It quite blatantly *is* sexist. Suspension is quite a severe punishment for that though.

Yeah, but when we are talking about almost a hundred million miles, even an entire mile (a pretty huge amount) is minuscule. Yeah, it technically changes, but so did the length of a meter until a relatively recent redefinition.

In my (top set) physics class a while back, a friend of mine was asking a series of increasingly complex and interesting questions of the teacher, and finally the girl sitting in front of him turned round and said (rather exasperatedly) "It's PHYSICS, [name], okay?"

Every time she asks a question in any class, most people who were there have taken to saying "It's [NAME OF CLASS], okay?". She's quite annoyed at this point. :P
