Ok, so these people didn't die, but they did fail the class because of their stupidity (these are both TRUE stories that happened in one of my American Government teacher's classes):
Before the midterm, a male student wrote some answers on the palm of his hand. While taking the test, he had a question and raised his hand, palm forward, to the teacher...
During another test, a young and very attractive student was wearing a skirt. As time went on, her skirt got shorter and shorter. My teacher couldn't help staring and he noticed that she had written answers on the inside of her thighs. He thought about asking if she wanted help washing them off.
