Student Poses as Professor, Kicks Off Chemistry Class at University of Rochester With a Prank

Patrick Adel­man is a stu­dent at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Rochester pur­su­ing degrees in math­e­mat­ics and polit­i­cal sci­ence. He’s also, accord­ing to his LinkedIn pro­file, a mem­ber of the Cham­ber Boys, the uni­ver­si­ty’s radio com­e­dy group. And, oh yes, a pro­duc­tion intern at the Howard Stern show. That’s prob­a­bly all the set up you need to see what hap­pened in Dr. Ben­jamin Hafen­stein­er’s Chem­istry 131 class last week. Enjoy the rest of the week­end.
