Taken from Reddit: They say there are no stupid questions, but teachers, what’s the most stupid question a student has ever asked you?

After a massive water shortage: “Can’t we just fill up the reservoir with tap water?”

“What do you mean they don’t celebrate 4th of July in Australia?”

“How old was the average 18 year old in 1942?”

This is a map of the United States. Here is the midwest–it’s where your math teacher is from. Student: Oh snap. We’re in a war with them. Me: Are you thinking about the middle east? Student: Oh yeah, is that a different place?

(Playing a trivia game with students) Johannes Gutenberg invented what? Student: (Shoots his hand up in the air quickly before I even finished the question and very sure of his answer) Cheese!

“What are those pyramid-shaped things in egypt called?”

My mom is a teacher’s assistant in a 5th grade class. A few weeks ago a girl asked,”Are bears still real?”

Warm spring day.

Fan blowing in the front of the room.
