Saw, School, and Teacher: What did "that kid" in your school do that will never leave your mind? 12.6k (self.AskReddit) submitted 12 hours ago by je suis_un_negre[+1] 8641 comments (451 new) source share save hide give gold report crosspost hide all child comments sorted by: best you are viewing a single comment's thread view the rest of the comments 4 [-1 voxetpraetereanihill +1] 2013 points 8 hours ago This kid was the trouble maker voted most likely to end up in prison.
