Someone installed games onto the schools server. There were a bunch of N64 emulators, Peggle, and some other games. But then there were also LAN games that could be played against anyone/everyone in the school including Counterstrike and Halo. Sometimes you’d go on and there’d be no one, other times there’d be 10v10 fight in Blood Gulch.
It lasted at least 10 years but don’t know if it has been taken down since.
Halfway through my last year of high school someone managed to put a ceramic toilet on top of our multi story gymnasium. I have no idea how that feat was achieved. The school staff didn't know either, nor could they figure out how to get it OFF the roof once they found it. As a result it remained on the gym for the remainder of my time there.
I never found out who did it, but I will admire them until my dying day.
Colombian kid was getting bullied until HE KICKED HIS BULLY UPSIDE THE HEAD BIGTIME. That little prick of a bully didn't know Carlos (the Colombian) competed in Taekwon-Do tournaments AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL for Colombia.
In ninth grade, one of our teachers got sick so we got a sub. And this kid just starts talking in a strong Spaniard accent (like super well) and convinces the teacher he is from Spain. And he talks this way FOR THREE MONTHS. It was hilarious. And when another kid tried talking as a Spaniard too, he got really upset and accused the other kid of mocking his culture etc. Then when the year ended we had to do a presentation and our teacher who got sick came! So the kid just nodded through the whole presentation while his group mates talked. It was hilarious.
Our AP English teacher went out on maternity leave, and we got a sub who did not give a single s**t. We were studying Romeo and Juliet, and she just decided to throw on the 1968 Zefirelli film version. She just brought out a book and started reading.
Well, she didn't think that out too well, because Juliet gets topless in that one. Some little s**t said "Ma'am, I didn't get that scene, could we rewind it?"
She barely looked up. Totally missed the boobs.
Five whole students pulled this (including a girl) before she noticed. Those five were gods in the school for a little bit.
Joe Sticka, class of 1969 at my HS. The guy didn’t exist. He was created by a group of my friends as a mid-year transfer student with a totally fabricated deep background that was so smooth ‘Joe’ even made the yearbook with a “picture unavailable” caption.
Our legend was actually the gym teacher. He became a legend by getting hit by a bus, getting up, getting on the bus and asking if everyone was OK. ~~He ended up getting fired about 5 years after I graduated because he was caught soaking raisins in vodka and then eating them over the course of the day.!! Never change Mr. Lev
This guy didn’t become a high school legend until the last 10 minutes of our last day at school.
I went to school with this kid for 5 years who, throughout all of high school, was bullied for the way he looked, considered a teachers pet, generally unpopular with most of the school etc.
No one knew much about him at all, apart from the reasons he was (unfortunately) bullied and otracised so hard.
On the last day of our final year at high school, we had a leavers ceremony where teachers gave speeches, students were given awards, etc. Typical painstaking “sit down for 2 hours while you watch all the accomplished sports kids drown in trophies” ceremony.
Out of no where, the principal introduced a performance from this kid, the notorious unpopular teachers pet. We were all so confused, what could he possibly be performing?
He got up on our schools theatre stage as if he were to do a stand-up special. He then proceeded to perform a 10 minute-long adult swim-style sketch in which he did spot-on impressions of not only every single teacher in the school (IN FRONT OF THEM), but the exam invigilators, the cleaners and even the fu**in dinner ladies.
This guy had fully produced and scripted an entire one man sketch where he played all the characters, the characters being every member of staff in the school, for the very last time we would all be in that hall together.
It was truly a “then everybody clapped” moment irl, as he got a standing ovation from every teacher in the hall, and all 120 students who relentlessly bullied him all these years prior. It felt like a massive middle finger to everyone who underestimated and ignored him.
This mystery kid, who’d been bullied and ignored for his entire 5 years at our high school, became a legend within 10 minutes on the very last hour of the very last day of our time in that place… and then I never saw him again. Wonder where he is now.
There was this girl “Kelly” who was very tiny, quiet, and seemingly well mannered. Very unassuming girl, I don’t think anyone knew who she was (big school) until she was ESCORTED OFF CAMPUS BY THE POLICE for stealing the credit card information of 14 students and going on a shopping spree. She disappeared for a year before somehow being allowed back in for her senior year. Instead of being a pariah, this girl somehow became a damn meme. “Free Kelly” posters would pop up with her mugshot on them, her name was incorporated into chants used at football games like she was a weapon that could be used against the opposing team, and she was at the top of everyone’s party invite list.
My brother ran in to the statue of our highschool mascot with his truck at night. Knocked the bulldog off it's platform then threw it in the back of the truck. It ended up in a pond out by our house. My brother, who was a massive wallflower in school, and never told a soul until he mentioned it to me over some beers in our 30s.
No one ever knew who it was but it was a big deal and I remember tons of allegations, accusations, and rumors as to how our mascot disappeared. Never in my life would I have ever suspected my brother.
During gym class we noticed people’s change and stuff would go missing here and there, as it was a british school with uniforms and blazers etc. Someone left their ipod recording in their blazer pocket and we caught the girl who’d been stealing our change red handed LMAO. It was so crazy bc she was like the richest kid, she was actually a semi-successful child actor who’d been in several shows.
"potato chips" in Spanish is papas fritas. Someone decided to start saying papas chodes instead (pronounced cho-daes). She would say no, that's not it. But we told her that a substitute teacher we had one time, who was a native Spanish speaker, told us that in some dialects it's papas chodes. And she bought it. All so we could sneak the word chodes into stuff and write it on the board. It even went so far that unsuspecting students in the class used it on the state test. Pretty sure it continued in subsequent years.
3 kids at my highschool literally saved a babies life by lifting up a car off of a child that got ran over and had it's head pinned under the axle. The baby would have died had they not showed up. Those kids were hailed as heroes and if I recall Good Morning America offered to fly them to New York for interviews but they declined, I'll see If I can find the article
Our history teacher was ex-military, and he was absolutely JACKED. Like this guy would bike ten miles every morning to school, kept an ab roller in his classroom, would eat salads and beans for lunch every day, the whole shebang.
Anyway, one day he gives our class a pop quiz. Jeff, the strongest, biggest guy in my class, goes up to him and asks:”If I can punch you in the stomach, and make you flinch, the entire class gets a 100 on the quiz.” My teacher took him up on it. He prepared himself, and Jeff absolutely DRILLS him in the stomach. Our teacher DID NOT FLINCH. We still had to take the quiz, but Jeff went down in history as the guy who punched a teacher, and the Teacher went down in history as a guy you don’t wanna f**king mess with.
There was this one sophomore who had a goose for a pet. He lived kinda close so he could walk to school, and he'd always let his goose walk with him. We all called him Goose, and he was a really nice guy to hang with, even the teachers liked petting his goose.
One time he was at school when one of the teachers who wasn't chill with his pet came out and started yelling at him about the goose, and he got a detention somehow. The next day, the same teacher wasn't in class...
We find out at a small assembly at the end of the day that Goose had let his goose run around the classroom last night, and apparently the teacher was still there grading, and got a beak to the head. No one messed with him for the rest of school year.
When I was a junior in HS the wrestling team would hang out in the bathroom at lunch and pack lips in the stalls. There was a kid who was probably on the spectrum who'd also hang in the bathroom every day and eat his lunch there so we befriended him and tried to give him some banter. I went to a midnight screening of Superbad and the first time McLovin came on the screen I was like "my god, that looks JUST like a slightly skinnier version of (stall kid)." So the next day at school I saw him in the hall and during our usual daps I was like YOOOOO IT'S MCLOVIN!!!!!!!! That caught on and for the rest of his time in high school everyone called him McLovin (he liked it) then he was voted prom king as a Senior. Hope you're well, McLovin :')
He cut his thumb off on a third floor window 5 minutes before final bell and busses. Getting all of us locked in the school of an hour as the ambulance arrived took him away and the school cleaned everything up.
When I was in 11th grade, a guy a year older than me, in grade 12, saved a grade 9 girl from being abducted by her estranged father in the school parking lot. Her dad hadn't been in her life for years and had previously tried to take her from her elementary school. This being her first year in high school, I guess he tried again. The 12th grader heard her scream as her dad tried to force her into his car and he ran over and got involved, apparently punching the dad before the dad got back in his car and sped off.
When I was a freshman, there was a senior on the last week of school who thought it would be legendary to streak on campus. He was 18. He was unable to receive his diploma on stage and had to register as a sex offender.
The senior class was gathered in the gym for a pep-rally type event but there weren't any planed events so we students were getting bored and restless. In an effort to engage us, teachers offered to let kids tell jokes into the microphone. The very first guy that goes to the microphone triumphantly asks, "HOW DEEP ARE WE GONNA GO, MEN?" and every male is the stands shouted back "BALLS DEEP!"
"HOW DEEP?!" "BALLS DEEP!"
the call and response quickly ended when the teachers swarmed him and took away the microphone. Jokes were over for the day.
Later in the year they hold another senior event in the gym but instead of jokes they let kids sing karaoke. Fun! Until the microphone goes missing between songs. Everyone is seated in the stands when that same guy stands up just laughing his ass off because someone handed him the microphone. The teachers say, "don't..." and he just keeps laughing. He manages to ask a single question into the microphone:
"HOW DEEP?" For the first time I understood school pride as 900 students (even the girls) joined in shouting "BALLS DEEP"
It's pretty stupid but a friend wore a Walmart hot dog costume and for some reason everyone thought it was funny, started chanting hot dog kid and he won the best Halloween costume award of that year.
Next year he wore a penguin costume and as he stepped up on stage he ripped it off to reveal the hotdog costume underneath. Everybody f**king lost it. Sadly we have a rule that you can't win 2 years in a row so while he didn't get the prize we all knew who had the best costume that day
That is how the legend of hot dog kid was born at my high school
We had a teacher who was infamous for not letting you go to the bathroom no matter what. I mean so much so that if you accidentally started your period in class, she'd make you wait. (This happened.)
So there was a girl who we'll call Katie in class, who tended to be a bit of a troublemaker. Katie hated that teacher, because she'd begged to go to the bathroom and got shut down every time.
At the end of the year, Katie asked one more time to go to the bathroom, The teacher said no.
Katie asked another time five minutes later. The teacher said no again.
Five minutes after that, Katie asked again, but said that the teacher was not going to like what happened if the teacher didn't let her go. The teacher hit the roof and said that if she said one more thing, Katie would be sent to the principal.
Katie shrugged and said "This is on you, then", and pissed on her seat, right where she was.
The teacher sent her to the principal, who called her parents, one of which was a urologist. Her father yelled at the principal. The teacher ended up in deep s**t. According to other kids, she never denied another kid the bathroom again.
