You might be old enough to think the mid-2000s shouldn’t be classed as retro, but they were over a decade ago now. One German sports car manufacturer from that time struggled to stick around following the global financial crisis, but there’s some good news: they’re back. Weismann has just teased its return, and it’s getting people very excited.
Who Are Weismann?
Weismann knew how to get pulses racing for gearheads in the 2000s thanks to their uniquely designed sports cars. They brought retro style to the bodywork combined with huge BMW engines and all the power going to the rear wheels. That combination made for some very fun cars, including the GT MF5. The company was pretty prolific during its heyday and churned out around 180 hand-built cars per year. They didn’t make it through the financial crisis unscathed though and in 2014 were forced to cease trading.
Coming Back To Life
It was thought that Weismann was long gone, but a Dutch website has teased that the German sports car manufacturer is making a comeback. AutoRAI.nl has acknowledged that the robed shape of a random car is in fact confirmed to be a new model from Weismann. Judging by the grill on the front, the company is sticking close to the original GT MF5 design that won it so many fans in the first place.
As of yet, the details about the upcoming release from Weismann are scarce, but it is known that they will once again be powered by BMW engines. The engines are expected to come from BMW’s M division, and there is a promise that new pictures will be released soon.
Fans of Weismann’s fun designs will be able to get their eyes on the new design soon as the sports car manufacturer makes its long-awaited comeback.
While it can be comfortable to work and study from the comfort of your bed, the mute button on your computer can be surprisingly dangerous. There are times when you may think you have muted yourself, but you actually didn’t. Here are some examples of hilarious camera and microphone mishaps.
A Lucky Teacher
Teachers can be stressed too sometimes. This class could tell that their teacher was going through a rough time, so they assured the teacher that she could just rest for the remainder of the class.
Little kids can be frightened by almost anything if you can make it look or sound scary enough. This person had to defend their thesis over a Zoom call, and a lot of professors joined the call to watch the student.
The thesis that this person wrote about was the immune response in fish to parasites. As the thesis continued, one of the professors joined in a bit late to watch the thesis and forgot to mute her mic resulting in this hilarious exchange with her child.
Meowing During a Call
This one does not involve an online class microphone mishap, but it was equally funny. This person’s mother was on a work call with the hospital where she worked. Because the mother worked in IT, many people were on the work call.
During the call, their cat jumped on the desk to get attention. The cat meowed loudly right into the mic while the meeting was proceeding, and continued to meow. Naturally, the mother was embarrassed but couldn’t get the cat to stop.
Math Teacher Hates Math
Most people can admit to having strongly disliked math class when they were a student. While this is a common complaint, what happens when the math teacher is the one that says it during the middle of a lesson?
While this person was solving equations in algebra camp, the teacher had forgotten to turn their mic off. Thanks to his forgetfulness, everyone heard him say how much he hated math.
Petting Your Cat on Zoom
Who doesn’t like cute feline furballs? During a lecture, this person’s cat jumped onto their lap and they started to pet their cat and tell him how cute he is in a sweet and silly voice. The person didn’t realize that they were unmuted.
After a few minutes of this, they got a message from their classmate saying that they were unmuted the whole time. All they could do is say that they were just talking to their cat and send a picture of their cat.
When this boy forgot to mute his mic during a class, everyone in the class could hear the boy being verbally abused by his mother. The boy then looked at the computer and realized both his camera and mic were still turned on which he then turned off.
During class the next day, the boy looked like he had been crying all day as his mother was standing behind him while he was in class. Thankfully, the principal and the counselor had a talk with the mother.
The English Teacher
There are times when we may develop a secret attraction or crush on someone. Well, this girl almost surprised everyone by answering her mother’s question about an attractive English teacher – during their English class on Zoom.
Much to her embarrassment, she was unmuted during the exchange. Everyone heard her mother ask her about “the hot teacher,” including the teacher himself! At least the teacher now knows he is popular with the mothers.
Wasps and Bees, Not the Same
A girl visited her best friend during one of her lectures while she had her camera and mic turned off. Because she was in a group discussion, she had to unmute every now and then to speak during the group discussion.
When her friend supposedly muted herself again, the girl started venting about how although wasps are sometimes considered to be wild bees, they shouldn’t be because bees are a lot nicer. All they could hear was sudden laughter from her friend’s classmates and professor.
We all know better than to speak badly about our teachers, especially in front of them. This student forgot to mute herself before they asked their teacher for a quick break and left to chat with her brother.
The teacher heard their whole conversation about what an awful teacher she was, and how poor she and her house looked in the call. Since the teacher always records her classes, she sent it to her supervisor and the student was removed from the tutoring program.
Startling a Silent Class
Art classes are normally silent, especially when all of the students are focusing on the art project that they have in front of them. This girl was in an online art class where everyone was focused on their work and just silent. It was during this quiet time, that her dad knocked on her door.
Thinking she was unmuted, the girl went to mute her mic. In doing so, she accidentally unmuted it before yelling and startling the whole class! The teacher even asked her if everything was okay.
Teacher Arguing With His Ex
It’s always awkward to be in the middle of two people arguing while you’re trying to mind your own business. It’s even more awkward when it’s your own teachers. Funnily enough, the IT teacher forgot to turn off his own camera and mic before getting into a very heated argument with his ex-girlfriend – another teacher at the same school.
The students in that class experienced the most awkward moment in their life for five minutes before the teacher eventually realized it.
It’s always exciting when your friend gets into a new relationship. This person was using their computer and cell phone during an online class. They didn’t realize they had accidentally left the computer’s mic on when they received a message from their friend saying that he got a girlfriend.
They messaged their friend saying that they finally did it and wanted to add some emojis. When trying to edit the message, they accidentally hit text-to-speech and her computer yelled out her message for the class to hear.
Petting Dog on Zoom
It’s no secret that pets can be adorable little distractions during Zoom meetings. We’ve already seen people get embarrassed because of their cat’s behavior during Zoom meetings, so why should a man’s best friend be any exception?
This person was in an online college class when their dog came up to them. They, of course, did not realize that they were unmuted and the whole class got to hear the person praising their dog. At least they all know that this dog is definitely loved.
Flatulent Training Call
Imagine you have a new project and you have to do an eight-hour Zoom call for a seven-week long training project. If that wasn’t bad enough, on the second week of training, a guy in the meeting unmutes himself and lets out the longest fart you’ve ever heard in your life.
Obviously, the others on the call started laughing while they were muted. The guy who did it muted himself out of embarrassment, after realizing that he had been unmuted while passing gas.
Getting Hit With the Chanclas
For many people growing up in Hispanic households, the threat of being disciplined with a sandal or “chancla” was a real fear. During an online class, a student decided to give a sarcastic response to a question.
Hearing this, his mother started yelling at him and hitting him with the chancla. For the record, the mother took some time off from her only remaining job to check on her son’s studies during the pandemic, just to make sure he was able to get the necessary education.
The Backbiting Co-Workers
This person was hired to make a video for a virtual learning course about a medical device. While the professors went to the next office to regroup and chat a bit, the person had already started rolling the camera when he heard them speaking through their headphones.
The person heard the professors criticizing them regarding how young they looked and how inexperienced they were in that specific field of medicine. Despite being insulted, the person continued with the shoot.
English Class Holdup
Almost every student gets annoyed when the teacher keeps them after the class has already finished and the bell rings. No one likes the “The bell doesn’t dismiss you, I do” type of teacher. This English teacher held up these students for more than 15 minutes after the period had already ended on Zoom.
During this time she told them to continue working to which a student replied, “if she says arduously ONE MORE TIME I’m going to FLIP A TABLE.” Unfortunately, they didn’t realize they were unmuted.
Angry Student on Call
Sometimes, you just wake up in a cranky mood and everything just gets on your nerves and annoys you. During times like this, it feels like you cannot stand anything. We don’t know if that was the case with this student, but she was definitely not in the mood for class.
A university teacher was taking his weekly lecturing session where a student joined in late. After the teacher greeted the student by her name, she replied quite aggressively and went ahead to mute herself.
Singing for the Whole Class
Whether just singing bits of songs while working or even having a whole concert in the bathroom, there are some people that just love singing. During a math class, the teacher asked the students to unmute themselves to prevent cheating since they were taking a test.
This girl forgot hers was already on and she started loudly singing “Stand By You” by the singer Rachel Platten. She went on through the whole song and didn’t even realize it.
Thermodynamics is Hard
The study of thermodynamics is a popular topic in most physics classes. Even for advanced students, learning about this branch of physics can be extremely complicated.
During an online class about thermodynamics, a student didn’t realize that their mic was turned on when they complained about how much work it was after going through a huge set of equations. At least everyone in the class found his situation and reaction very relatable.
Snoring on Call
At some point in life, we have all experienced feeling tired because we didn’t get enough sleep the night before. This tiredness often makes us want to doze off in class the next day. This person had to wake up really early in the morning for a morning lecture on Zoom.
Their friend then messaged them telling them that they’d probably want to turn their mic off since they had fallen asleep and that the entire class could hear their heavy breathing and snoring.
There are moments when you see or hear something that changes the way you see a person. These insights into a person’s true character can sometimes be disturbing, especially when you realize that your teacher is not the person you thought they were.
During an online class, the teacher’s mic was unmuted. The class heard him talking to his wife which was pretty normal and no one really cared as much. However, as soon as his wife left, he got on his phone and invited his mistress over.
Mothers are often overprotective when it comes to their children. This is mostly because they want their child to be safe and not hang out with the wrong crowd. This mother used to always stand behind and observe her son during his classes.
One time he forgot to mute himself and the whole class, including the teacher, got to hear his mother telling him how to behave. It seemed like she was overly controlling, and perhaps even abusive.
There are some teachers who just want to get an early start when it comes to teaching a new lesson. This guy joined his Zoom class early in order to make sure that he didn’t miss anything at the beginning of the lecture.
However, the moment he joined, he saw that the teacher was already teaching. His surprise caused him to make a joke about the teacher’s punctuality resulting in the teacher telling him to turn off his mic and laughing.
Practicing on Zoom
A lot of people often get nervous when they have to order something from the menu for themselves. This girl was in a class over Zoom, with her mic turned on, when she kept practicing her food order.
She placed the whole order while she was on the phone, even though everyone was trying to tell her that her mic was turned on.She thought she was muted the whole time. At least her classmates now know she loves Mediterranean food, especially chicken gyros.
Passing Gas on Call
We already heard about the training meeting where someone decided to pass gas while on a Zoom call. Guess the farting during online meetings doesn’t ever end. During a meeting for a tech industry, this guy forgot to mute himself while in the bathroom.
Hundreds of people on the call got to hear him fart and then flush his toilet. These large meetings often tend to be boring, so events like this one are some of the most interesting things that happen. At least the person flushed!
Sometimes the arguments just get so heated, it may seem like things are practically explosive. During a heated argument between different psychology schools, a professor started screaming “Fire, fire, there is fire.” Of course, many of the students were confused and some of them even though the professor was referring to the points raised during the argument.
When they heard the teacher’s brother say that their switchboard had caught on fire, they realized that the teacher’s house was actually on fire.
Zoom Bathroom Break
There are times when you just cannot hold back the urge to go to the bathroom. With many meetings and school classes being done online, it’s easy to take a quick restroom break. You can just mute yourself and use the bathroom without anyone knowing or saying anything to you.
During a work call, this person decided to use his bathroom. When he didn’t answer after being asked to confirm his presence in the meeting, he accidentally let it slip that he was actually busy in the bathroom.
Mothers can often be overprotective as we have already seen with another story. This overprotective behavior can sometimes cause them to become suspicious, or even paranoid, as demonstrated by this story.
This girl was in an early-morning online class on Zoom when her mother yelled at her. Her mother asked why she was on the computer so early in the morning, and kept on asking her over and over until the teacher told her that her mic was on.
Changing on Camera
Invasion of privacy is always a risk when it comes to using a webcam. Because this teacher was teaching an online class over Zoom, he had his camera turned on. He most likely did not realize that his son was in the background changing while his camera was on.
Strangely, that did not stop his son – he kept changing while he was staring into the camera. It just got kind of creepy.
Impromptu Weather Report
Thanks to modern technology, students can continue their lessons in the comfort of their homes. One of the downsides of online learning, however, is that the software is known to experience issues and crash unexpectedly.
Luckily, this meteorologist-in-training was ready for any change in the weather (or class!). They quickly swooped in to provide the class with some entertainment while their professor addressed his computer issue. Though it was a joke, we think this student may have a special talent when it comes to reporting the weather.
Teachers working in rural areas often experience some very unique things. While most students in cities often blame public transportation for their tardiness, this teacher’s students had a far funnier excuse.
It turns out that the student was training his show pig. Pig shows are popular events in which pigs are judged and evaluated on various criteria. We’re sure that his classmates enjoyed learning about pig shows and seeing the pig perform tricks!
Too Much Training
Business meetings can often be boring, especially during training. This is especially true when the training is for a group of school teachers over Zoom. This person was on a Zoom training call with around 200 teachers where only the assistant principal and principal were speaking.
One of the teachers had their mic turned on. She got a phone call and everyone on the call heard her complain about the training session.
The Tablet Called “Fix”
Many children often assign names to their toys or other inanimate objects. This little boy decided to call his tablet “fix” since the tablet would always shut down and his mother had to get it fixed for him.
After his online class was over, he asked his mother if he could get his fix now that his classes were over. When his pre-K teacher heard this strange request, the mother was forced to explain what the “fix” actually was.
There are times when you find your school classes boring. This is something almost every student has experienced for sure. This feeling of boredom is especially common during online classes. This girl joined a class on Zoom and wrote that the class is really boring in the chatbox.
She might not have realized that the messages in the chatbox were not private and the teacher could see them.
Bathroom During Conference Call
This person had to be in a conference call for their work. Around a dozen people were on the call. Since this person was relatively new in the job, he was mostly just listening to his coworkers. The call had been going on for a while and the person really needed to use the bathroom.
He forgot to mute himself and everyone on the call heard his toilet flushing in the middle of the meeting. While they laughed, he was deeply embarrassed.
Baby Talking With Cat
This person shared a story about a misbehaving cat on Zoom. It seems that cats just can’t contain themselves when it comes to online Zoom classes and conferences. This person was in a Zoom meeting with their class on the first day of school. With all of the excitement, they forgot to mute themselves.
With their cat on their lap, they started to baby talk and pet their cat noisily while the whole class was hearing them. Kind of embarrassing for the first day of school.
Staff Member Was Unmuted
During an online graduation ceremony, the school had all of the staff join the call on Zoom so that they could unmute themselves during certain parts and clap to make sure the call would seem like a real graduation ceremony. Unfortunately, a staff member accidentally forgot to mute themselves.
Throughout the whole class, the teachers and the parents listened to the staff member jokingly making fun of her husband while she was drinking and complaining about how boring and long the ceremony was.
Virtual Gym Class
Working out can be a pain sometimes – dealing with body aches and sore muscles all over can be very frustrating. During a high school virtual gym class, a girl forgot to mute herself and started to yell out some very obscene things in front of the whole class while in the middle of a workout.
She was probably tired and was trying to let it all out while burning those calories and pushing herself to the limits.
Teacher Getting Scolded
This teacher was being scolded by his wife because he had forgotten to fix her computer, even though he was a computer technology teacher. Because his wife needed to work on the computer, she went on a rant about how he always promises to fix things but never gets around to doing it.
The teacher just kept on apologizing to his clearly upset wife before he realized that his mic was still on. After realizing his embarrassing error, he quickly turned it off.
This guy found a video featuring the president of his university presenting something alongside a group of important people. This video, which was recorded earlier due to the pandemic, contained a particularly hilarious bit. At one point, his wife interrupts the conversation to tell him that she is really mad at him.
She tells him to go clean the toilet himself, and she doesn’t have to clean his stuff for him all the time. A few awkward moments later, he says that they might need to edit that part out.
Bothering the Whole Class
This class had a student who logged in the classes using their smartphone, but did so anonymously. They used to join the classes outside so that every time there was a sound, it would expand their their screen while minimizing the teacher’s screen.
This was a problem since the lessons were being done on a whiteboard. The teacher did not know who it was since they never responded and they were connected anonymously. So, they didn’t even get recorded for attending the lectures either.
Even I Could Do That
This teacher had a student in his class who had forgotten to turn off their mic, causing the class to hear random noises from the background. Because of a glitch in the screen’s display, no one could tell where the noise was from.
The next thing the teacher heard was the student insulting the teacher by saying how useless the class was and how all he was doing was writing on a tablet, which anyone could do. They didn’t come back to the class after they realized what happened.
Yelling Out for Rice
This person was making lunch while their brother was in an online class. They didn’t really know how to make rice since it was their first time making rice and so they asked their brother to check if the rice was ready.
After the brother didn’t respond, they repeated themselves again which caused the brother to yell at them. The startled teacher replied by asking him to mute his mic after hearing the brother scream.
Laughing at Reddit Memes
Everyone loves memes nowadays, almost everything is made into a meme. They are funny and we see them everywhere, many people spend countless hours scrolling through them. This guy was in his English class while he was browsing through Reddit and looking at the memes.
Unfortunately, he forgot that his mic was on. Although he was trying to not laugh out loud, the memes were apparently too funny. Eventually, the teacher asked him what was making him laugh so much.
