MSNBC – Wafaa Bilal, an assistant arts professor at New York University, recently decided to become the envy of every parent in the world by installing a camera in the back of his head. The only problem? His body has rejected the implant, forcing him to have the gadget removed. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, the setup used by Bilal — a camera held by three posts connected to an implanted titanium base — caused the man constant pain as his body refused to accept the presence of the device. Despite treatment with antibiotics and steroids, Bilal was forced to have the camera as well as one of the posts surgically removed. That’s not the end of things, though, because Bilal has plans to try out a different setup — one with a lighter camera, perhaps — as soon as the wounds from his surgery heal. Talk about determination!
I am absolutely not going to make fun of this guy. Because a little known fact about me is that I was an education major in college. Did the whole fucking student teaching thing at Pioneer High School. Just trying to bang High School chicks like a motherfucker. Anyway one of my absolute pet peeves was cheating. Like I know 97% of students cheat and that may be conservative. I was determined not to let it happen on my watch. I didn’t care if anybody learned shit. I didn’t care if people were getting ganked in the coat room. Just as long as nobody cheated I was happy. So if I stuck with teaching I would have 100% gotten a camera installed in the back of my head. Yeah I know what you’re thinking. Why not just put a camera someplace else. Well the answer is because students will figure out a way to beat it. You can never have enough surveillance. I swear my classroom would have been like Fort Knox. Security detail, motion detectors, cameras in skulls. The works. So I ain’t mad at ya Wafaa Bilal. Haters gonna hate…Slaters gonna Slate.
PS – Love this guys hustle. Not even a full professor. Just an assistant and still making bold moves.
