There must be a lot of out-of-the-box' ideas to prevent students from cheating during exams, but this particular 'out-of-the-box' idea is putting kids in a box, literally. During an exam at Bhagat Pre-University College in Haveri, Karnataka, someone had the genius idea of making all the students wear cardboard boxes on their heads. Yep, legit boxes on everyone's head with just a cutout in the front so they could just see their papers. It already sounds so hilarious - and just a lil bit sad - but what actually makes it better is that there are pictures of it. It's the best thing anyone will see today, I can guarantee it. Karnataka: Students were made to wear cardboard boxes during an exam at Bhagat Pre-University College in Haveri, reportedly to stop them from cheating. (16.10.2019) pic.twitter.com/lPR5z0dsUs — ANI (@ANI) October 18, 2019 Apparently, during last year's exams, students didn't stop cheating even after repeated warnings, so this was the solution that the college came up with. I mean, there could have been more steps before resorting to literally putting people in boxes, but oh well. The incident, obviously, went somewhat viral and the pictures are gold, tbh. There are so many hilarious reactions and at least the students' suffering wasn't in vain. Legendary behaviour, truly.

Deputy Director of Public Instruction Department, SS Piraje said, "We have clearly told the management to give a written explanation and if this kind of incident is repeated in the future, the department will cancel the license of the school." Well, I guess this was the first and last time something like this would happen.
You have to be either really brave or really dumb to try and mug a professional MMA fighter, who is known as 'The Iron Lady', with a fake gun made up of cardboard. Yes, you read that right. When Polyana Viana was standing by herself waiting for a cab in a remote corner of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a mugger believed he had found an easy target to rob. Little did he know that the apparently helpless lady was a professional strawweight UFC fighter with a 10-2 MMA winning record. According to Viana, when the thief saw her all alone he sat next to her and asked her for the time. “I said it (the time), and I saw he wasn't going to leave. So I already moved to put my cell phone in my waist. And then he said, 'Give me the phone. Don't react, because I'm armed.' Then he put his hand over (with a gun), but I realised it was too soft,” Viana told the 'de Janeiro police. © Polyana Viana Judging by how close the robber was to her, Viana knew that he wouldn't have enough time to reach for the gun even if he was indeed packing. She quickly stood up, threw a couple of punches and a kick to his head, and once the stunned man fell to the ground, she wrapped him in a rear-naked choke from behind. The robber's face had multiple fractures and when the police arrived, they had to take him to a medical faculty to fix him up a bit before escorting him to the police station. When word about the incident broke out, the Iron Lady became an instant hit with people from all over the world commending her for her valour, some even showing sympathy towards the poor thief who made the worst mistake of his life and regretted almost instantaneously. On the left is @Polyana_VianaDF, one of our @UFC fighters and on the right is the guy who tried to rob her #badfuckingidea pic.twitter.com/oHBVpS2TQt — Dana White (@danawhite) January 7, 2019 Competition and fitness are great reasons to train in the #martialarts but #selfdefense is an even better one. #PolyanaViana #selfdefense #mma #martialarts #hardtargethttps://t.co/VI4m6yBtG0 pic.twitter.com/VLQ0hpvYLU — The Dojo (@The_Dojo_FC) January 7, 2019 You should never mug people! You should especially never mug women!! And definitely make sure you never ever mug a female UFC fighter!!! https://t.co/jdCfX9oxCn #PolyanaViana — Perez (@ThePerezHilton) January 8, 2019 So this piece of trash decides he's so pathetic he's going to threaten a woman and steal her phone. Thing is... that woman was Polyana Viana... a UFC fighter. This is the result. God I love stories like these. pic.twitter.com/0QA8TzMEya — John Campea (@johncampea) January 7, 2019 I mean, if you're going to run around trying to mug people in Brazil, you'd better have a strong rear-naked choke defense. That's just a given. https://t.co/zBlvK7QQmS — Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) January 6, 2019
A journalist selfies with cardboard cut-outs of Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha at Government House in Bangkok, Thailand, January 9, 2018. ? Reuters BANGKOK: Thailand?s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, known for his temperamental outbursts, has adopted a unique tactic to avoid tricky questions from reporters -- leave a cardboard cutout of himself for reporters to quiz. But the gesture has been criticised by Human Rights Watch which said it shows the military junta chief?s ?contempt of media criticism? in a country yet to restore democracy since a 2014 coup. Seventeen life-sized cutouts of Prayuth have been set up around the government compound ahead of Children?s Day on Saturday. They show Prayuth in various outfits including sportswear, work suits and traditional Thai attire. On Monday, Prayuth spoke briefly at Government House before a cutout of Prayuth in a suit and tie was brought out. Prayuth, who is known for his abstruse sense of humour, then told journalists to refer any questions to the cardboard cutout. ?Ask this guy,? he said. Reaction to the bizarre gesture was largely muted on social media on Tuesday but Human Rights Watch said it added to a ?long list of his bizarre and bullying reactions to reporters?. ?Thailand?s junta leader General Prayuth Chan-ocha continues to show contempt of media criticism and scrutiny,? Sunai Phasuk, senior Thailand researcher at Human Rights Watch, told Reuters. Children pose next to a cardboard cut-out of Thai PM Prayuth Chan-ocha at Government House in Bangkok, Thailand, January 8, 2018. ? Reuters The general is known for going off-script and for his public outbursts which are sometimes dismissed as mildly amusing even by his staunchest critics. His comments have also been menacing. In 2015, he warned journalists that he had the power to execute them. In another separate incident, he threw a banana peel at a reporter. Prayuth?s government has announced it will hold a general election in November 2018 after repeatedly delaying the vote. However, it has yet to lift a ban on political campaigning despite pressure from groups of all political stripes. ?Even when the junta promises to hold an election, there is no open space for media freedom,? said Sunai. Children?s Day is celebrated annually in Thailand on the second Saturday of January. On the day, armed forces open up military barracks to children to let them pose with weapons and tanks. Children are also invited to sit at the prime minister?s work desk inside Government House.
KARACHI: A fire broke out at a cardboard factory in North Karachi during the wee hours of Monday. Exceeding seven hours, firefighters are still unable to douse the fire. Up to nine fire brigades are deployed on the site, along with snorkels, in efforts to gain control and stop the fire from spreading further. According to Mayor Karachi Waseem Akhtar, who was present on location, 80 percent of the fire has been contained. The Mayor complained about lack of resources at the disposal of the fire department to efficiently deal with such incidents. Fire at Boat Basin Earlier today, another fire erupted at a restaurant situated on the ground floor of a commercial building in Karachi?s Boat Basin area. Five fire brigade vehicles and one snorkel were used to extinguish the fire at the building's first floor after having doused the flames at the ground floor. The windows of the commercial building, spread over three floors, shattered due to the intensity of the fire. Sources said short-circuiting could be behind the fire. Rescue officials said the gas cylinders and plastic furniture of the restaurant aided the spread of the fire. No loss of life or injuries were reported in the incident. Once the fire was completely extinguished, fire brigade officials said eight vehicles were used to douse the blaze.
