If you’ve ever wondered what the people in front of you in class are looking at on their laptops, we’re one step closer to helping you find out.

Or, at least, these college instructors are after they decided to list out all the things they caught students looking at on their laptops over the semester. They decided to put their findings in a PowerPoint and present them to the class, and honestly, it’s pretty hilarious what they found.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

We’ve got some of what you’d expect — Facebook, Amazon, Reddit, Huffington Post and other news sites. And then we have some things you probably woudn’t expect, like Chinese rap videos, watching Planet Earth 2, looking at pictures of sliced bread and photoshopping Trump onto muppets.

I don’t know whether to be completely weirded out or pleasantly surprised TBH, and I’m not the only one.

Then there was this guy, who obviously hadn’t been to college in a long, long time.

Kids will be kids, they say. And college students will buy $240 worth of turtlenecks in class. Whatcha gonna do?

All I can say is that this says more about my classmates than I’ve ever wanted to know. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
