Everyone loves a teacher who tries to liven things up. It's the Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society way to reach students.

Well, sometimes it might just be better to stand at the blackboard, keep the students in their seats and bore them in order to make your point.

This would be one of those times.

This physics teacher decided to give his class a demonstration in, well, we're not sure what. He is the one on the ground while another member of the staff is the one swinging the axe that goes waaaaay too close to the family jewels.

And while it looks like the teacher may have avoided losing his precious stones, it's unclear if anyone lost their job for going ahead with the Paul Bunyan-esque stunt.

Hopefully, the students won't take their teacher's lead, like the lads in Dead Poets Society, because we know that ended pretty tragically.
