FOX- A classroom prank some BYU students say crossed the line. A student drank what she thought was her professor's urine as part of a lesson on kidney function. The student got extra credit for slugging back a small vial.
"I think that's asking too much of students and it has nothing to do with how well we study or how well we actually know physiology," said a student in the class who filmed the incident.
Professor Jason Hansen teaches the class. He posted a note to his students three days after it happened. It reads in part: "Please rest assured that it was not really urine but rather food coloring and diluted vinegar."
In a statement sent to FOX 13 News, Hansen wrote that he has done this in the past with other classes, usually letting everyone in on the gag when the class next meets. He notes, part of the lesson is discussing how doctors once tasted the urine of their patients to screen for things like diabetes.
Jesus Christ, college kids fucking suck nowadays. You know how happy I would have been if a professor tinkled in a vial and offered it up to the class for additional points? I probably wouldn't have been the one to go up there and slam it like the last shot before happy hour ends, but I would have enjoyed the shit out of watching someone else do it. At the very least it would have kept me from nodding off and drooling all over my textbook in a boring ass lecture hall.
Maybe if the chick that recorded this video and then went and ran her mouth to news cameras realized she wasn't in 6th grade anymore then she would understand that "extra credit" isn't supposed to be easy. You want three additional points without potentially drinking your teacher's liquid lunch then hit the books a little harder like a big girl. I don't care if that was real urine or food coloring and diluted vinegar. Hell, if you ask Bear Grylls he'd probably tell you she would be better off drinking actual piss. I honestly would have preferred if he had up the stakes to a live golden shower in exchange for a full letter grade. Just because opportunity knocks doesn't mean you have to answer.
I don't even care whether or not it had anything to do with the curriculum. Fuck Physiology. This whiney little snitch should treat this as a life lesson on how to get rewarded for doing the things that others don't want to do. The ballsy ass chick that just threw back a nice warm ounce or two of some rancid smelling substance got the points she was promised in return. That's literally all that matters. The feelings of some entitled broad - whose primarily crying because she's got a weak stomach and is a couple grade points short of a B - certainly don't.
