I Could Have Taught You That: Science Teacher Leaves Parabolic Mirror In Car, Melts Interior

July 26, 2018

These are several shots of the aftermath of San Francisco science museum teacher Mark 'Zeke' Kossover leaving a parabolic mirror he made in the back of his Subaru Outback on a sunny day. The mirror, which Mark made by covering a DirecTV satellite dish (presumably stolen from a neighbor during a rainstorm) with reflective Mylar film, was intended to be part of a solar oven to cook food with the power of the sun. Instead, Marc cooked the plastic interior in the rear of his car. I really feel like a science teacher should have been aware of that possibility. Or maybe this is just a public service announcement disguised as ignorance. I do that all the time myself. "No, you do dumb stuff then say you did it on purpose to teach everyone a lesson." Well well well, I guess you've got me all figured me. Seriously though don't use lighter fluid in the oven.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Thanks again to Henderson, who, despite two tips used in a row, they're a day apart, so this one only counts as your first towards a three-in-one-day gold star sticker. I'm sorry, but rules are rules.

    False, there are never rain storms in San Francisco.

  • Jenness

    My inner 10 year old: "Way to go Einstein!"

  • GeneralDisorder

    Nobody ever said teachers were smart. Haven't you heard the old adage "those who can't do, teach."

  • Meh

    Teachers, DOH

    I took a complaint once in an office. A workman had removed the radiator and didn't cap the steam line. It was summer and the steam was off. The radiator never got replaced and the steam was turned on. Anything plastic was a puddle.

  • Douchy McDouche

    Everyone is calling him dumb and yet he just taught us all something new.

    Did you try to make money on the web before but then did not actually get profitable results? So no need to get worried anymore! Because of the fact that we now have already trained approximately more than five thousand persons world wide & they are really consistently generating 5000 usd to ten thousand usd every month. All you must have is a desktop computer as well as an internet connection, not any technical skill set are expected.Listed here is what I am doing .... https://norisk22.tumblr.com

  • Don't click the link, it contains instructions on how to build a thermonuclear weapon out of a DirectTV antenna that you presumably stole during a rainstorm. And yes, it will fit in the back of a Subaru Outback.

    Oh, he'll fit right in downtown :P

  • TheQiwiMan

    These are the kinds of people “educating” our kids...

  • Gingerbread

    What's this, a Kossover episode?

  • Wooder

    But good news is that the professor did crack the window open a bit for the dog!

    PETA is investigating...

  • GeneralDisorder

    PETA believes that no animal should be a pet and would immediately put it down and toss its haggard corpse in the freezer with all the other animals they've euthanized.

  • Bling Nye

    Proof that even "smart" people can do some really stupid shit.

    Ask your doctor what rank they were in their graduating class... if they answer "C's get degrees!" or with the joke, "What do you call the guy that graduated at the bottom of his medical cohort? DOCTOR! HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAH" ...you may want to consider getting a second opinion.
