If you don’t have a crazy (and probably weird af) story about your high school, then did you even go to high school? Honestly, putting a bunch of teens together every day in a building is sure to be the catalyst of a ton of strange shit, and I’m saying this from a place of experience — my high school was as wild as the rest.

So when Twitter user and Buzzfeed writer Katie Notopoulos asked her followers what “the incident” at their high school was, let’s just say that people had a lot to say.

What followed was one of the craziest threads this year, so we gathered the best stories for you here.

1. This girl’s stalker turned out to be herself


2. The history teacher dated and impregnated a student


3. A father faked his son’s death for life insurance money


4. Someone’s parent started threatening students and faculty


5. A guy pulled out someone’s bloody tampon on the dance floor


6. Someone ordered strippers for the football players (and they declined)


7. Someone stole some of the letters from the school sign to make this funny message

8. The school’s website got redirected to an, um, interesting site
