I once had a marker write in the comments not to waste his time with my work in future if this was the quality I was capable of.

In truth the essay I submitted was absolute fucking high school politics tier garbage (I wrote it in a few hours two days after it was due, and it was low effort even considering that).

I was so BTFO that I couldn't muster up the nerve to submit anything else in that course (not that I could have salvaged my grade) and I failed it. Never re-took it either, I just got the credits elsewhere.

I've since graduated and even now it makes me seethe.

You know, I don't think I've ever actually been btfo'd, other than one time during the Arab Spring when I went with the naive liberal interpretation that it was about democracy, rather than democracy + Islamism. But even then, the person doing the btfoing was also going too hard on the "they're Islamists" narrative.
I have been given a 50% on two seperate essays, however.
One, for medical anthropology, was for an essay where I argued that health and illness are constructions like good and evil that vary globally. I think the doctor marking my paper just couldn't accept that and marked me down to 50% with the rationalisation that I'm a bad writer. (I usually got 80%+ for my essays.)
I also got a 50% for an international relations essay on why Southeast Asia faces so many "non traditional security threats". I went deep into Chinese, European, and geological history, as well as like soil analysis and I think the marker basically went "well, all this is almost certainly right, but I don't have any of the background to verify these claims, so 50".
I guess I got btfo in introductory physics by getting 49%, then taking a makeup test where if I'd just entered "0" for every answer I would have passed, actually trying to make a proper attempt, and not passing.
I btfo'd myself by being oversensitive about people making dismissive comments or laughing at me when I asked brainlet tier mathematics questions. It shut me down and put me into seething to the point where I felt the need to leave the room. I had to develop a better attitude, and passed on my third attempt. Currently on 100% for the subsequent math subject.
I've learned that humanities subjects are just about flattering the ego of the professor and making sure not to go outside their bumpers. And STEM, at least at the level I'm at, is almost pure heuristics, with basically no marks awarded for understanding the "why" of things.

One thing I learned from studying STEM is that you have to be ruthless with the staff. Just interject ruthlessly if you don't understand anything. Use the lectures as a private tutoring session. People will literally thank you for it, and the professors will either bond with you over it or offer more time to you to get you to stop derailing the lectures. Other students will jump in to explain things, including after class.
Even tell them to write larger. STEMlords often are just phoning the lecture in (as are, I suppose, plenty of humanities lecturers - although I've never had trouble following humanities like STEM). You've got to personally pull them up on things like assuming too much knowledge, not checking the knowledge level of the audience etc.
I'm getting better at it.
Also don't be afraid to bring binoculars to class if the professor's handwriting is unclear. You can literally be as obnoxious as you want as long as you aren't yelling. If people around you are talking to a distracting amount, you can just loudly tell them to shut up or leave, and the lecturer will take your side. Honestly, you can get away with a lot of chimping with a basic understanding of which lines aren't allowed to be crossed.

As someone who used to be TA in mathematics I agree with you. Us mathfags usually have no idea of how confused the students are about the material, we can't help unwittingly assuming they know things they don't. Don't let us get away with it, as tiresome as it is, this is what we are here for.

Never got BTFO post-high school when it comes to writing. However, being in a STEM field, had to give a couple of presentations in front a large class on different topics like the Ebola Outbreak and Stem Cells. Looking back they were all pretentious as fuck and I cringe thinking I saw them like giving a big TED talk.

There was even one presentation on "Extending Life through medicine", and half of the presentation I spent talking about Plato's argument on immortality of the soul, and the Philosopher Stone. Teacher was like "mkay, that was interesting, but what does it have to do with medicine?"

The idea that one would willingly spend three hours hiding in a girls bathroom is absurd. The only reason I can imagine anybody would do it is for the pure spectacle of witnessing themselves doing it - some kind of weird performative social machoism precisely concocted to relate to an unseen audience (or alternatively, your friends on 4chan who think it’s ever so endearing).

This isn’t how people retell stories. This is the story in-itself, the actual subject. It’s a nonsense entirely created to fill a serious void in anon’s life where normal interaction and drive should be. It’s the epitome of ‘haha I’m so random’, but taken to an extreme and actually becoming a lived-philosophy. He can tell it anyway he likes, it’s the subject of the retelling that’s the problem.

Yeah I know but I had to wait for the crowds to die down outside or someone might have seen me coming out of the girl's bathroom and assumed I was perving in the girl's bathroom when I had in fact gone in there by mistake because I hadn't been looking where I was going. I had a shit for the first half an hour, then two girls came in, then I got confused, then I had a panic attack then I spent the rest of the time feeling very sorry for myself and trying to figure out how to get myself out without anybody seeing me because if anyone saw me leaving the girl's toilets they might think upon me negatively. Then I had another shit which was inadvisable because it was super soft and I bled a lot after wiping so much to clear it off, which was another half an hour gone. I knew there was usually nobody in the canteen after 5 so I just waited until then and ran for it to the men's toilets so I could wash my hands then I went home and never told a soul for seven years and had almost completely forgot about it until now.

In my first year methods seminar in grad school the Hispanic professor demanded weekly response papers from us. The very first week had one, even though we hadn't convened yet. Several people (including me) of course didn't read the syllabus until that first day, so several people didn't know they there was a paper due. He scolded everyone. When I missed a second paper later in the semester, he emailed me and three or four other people who had also missed a second paper with a long paragraph haranguing us for being unprofessional. Halfway through the paragraph he transitioned to writing in Spanish and basically started calling us dipshits who don't take our studies seriously, saying this isn't high school and we're not here to be coddled. I had to google translate it from Spanish.

Some professors are just bullshit. Had one women with a PhD for American history, and for a midterm essay I wrote about the gulf war and underlying reasons for it and how it worked with the American economy. Worked very hard on that essay. Ended up with a C- and felt like I got robbed because nothing was actually written on the paper that was handed back. When I asked about how there was no comments she simply said "Do you know how hard it is to be a teacher? We do not have time to write comments." Decided to ask her why she gave me a bad mark, and she had to re read the entire paper. Then finally she said it was a well researched and written piece but she didnt like how I acted in class and that hopefully giving me a bad grade would make be behave better in class. Dropped the class right there. Some professors man, they got an ego that is out of this world.

This can't be true. That's academic misconduct if you're even partly telling the truth.

No one would give a grade that low in any class unless you submitted a paper half the required length that wasn't doing the work properly. I'm at a "notoriously grade deflating" university which has a reputation for suicides, and even then it's a joke, the lowest grade you can get is maybe a C, and that's if you effectively submit nothing. If you try whatsoever you're getting a B- minimum, and if you put actual effort into your paper and can read and write at an adult level you are probably getting B or B+ minimum.

It's not just fairness or whatever, it's that students complain like crazy. There's no way she would give a grade that bad and not write comments unless it was a very short paper or you completely didn't do the assignment. If she did, she's probably nuts, because that's inviting the student to complain. Professors always cover their tracks when giving a shit grade like that. Her responses to you don't make much sense either. She would be much cagier than that, having experienced students complaining about their grades before. Every year there is at least one completely insane student melting down about the B+ they got and how it's going to destroy their entire life etc.

I had to study Frankenstein in about three different English classes and I was sick of the professors insisting that the monster be called "the creature" and insisting that he wasn't evil, and that Victor was the true villain of the story. So, in my last experience with it, I wrote an essay comparing Frankenstein's monster to Elliot Rodger, drawing a close comparison between lashing out for being an ugly incel against god's creation and lashing out for being an ugly incel against the family of one's creator. My professor gave me a good grade, but he wrote a fucking novel himself in response.

i find the use in psychologizing to be exactly in that it reveals nothing about the person, rather than revealing anything about them at all. it has its purchase in ideas, not really in identifying some deep and ulterior motive. whether you actually have that mentality is besides the point. on any anonymous imageboard, you're more just the canvas of the next person's projections - which may or may not lead to generative ideas. the latin truth of veritas is trumped by the greek truth of aletheia

how else do you think conversation is even possible at all? you miss the deeper point of the psychoanalytic vocabulary in that it actually is the same vocabulary for human language. in the same way we don't in fact see the physical objects in front of us but instead diffuse reflections from a primary source of light, so too do we not say anything about anyone else other than we do of ourselves. to listen is to allow a projection of the other to take over some aspect of yourself, and to speak is to let your projection cast over them. a pro-ject is a forward trajectory nonetheless. and even though it can be used to trace back, it is the only way forward

Anon was afraid of going out, because "what will others think of me being in here". The others can be an audience, spectators or as most people call it strangers. The ultimate truth is nobody fucking cares. It's a moment that might be embarrassing right now, but is forgotten very soon by everyone except you. Your life is not so interesting that others follow it and think "what is anon going to do now", especially if you're not calling attention to yourself.
And the way these stories are written it is sort of a " I did this whacky thing once, but I'm not gonna tell you now hehe" hints at the anon using the story as entertainment. Your life is not entertainment for others, and you shouldn't do or not do something based on what others think of it, and on whether or not it will make a good story for others to hear.

Embarrassment isn't the main issue here, though I have done stupid shit to avoid that too, more the potential for total social and professional ruin. I have to walk out of the cubicle into the general hand washing area where I could well bump into a girl walking in. In that scenario, an awkward smile and a "whoops, wrong toilet," isn't really going to cut it. She's going to leg it, she'll certainly tell somebody and it's not unlikely that it finds its way back to me in a disciplinary fashion. I'd rather wait for three hours 'til I know nobody will be coming in or walking past.

As a counterpoint, my high school was extremely lenient. At that time, I had an OCD-like compulsion to repeatedly click my screen in certain areas, inching upward. The text editor I was using let you drag selected text to a different place in the document. Just before submitting my essay, I accidentally shuffled the whole thing to bits without realizing. I think I got a B. I remember the teacher commented that it was a bit confusing.
