    That`s not creepy. It`s a useful teaching tool. Too many people think that science is boring. It`s not - it`s the coolest thing ever. A striking example of an odd aspect of science makes that point and improves learning.

    The most striking example I`ve seen was a lecturer kicking off a lecture by sticking his hand in a vat of boiling lead(*). That sure got people`s attention. Don`t try it at home!

    * It`s legit - an example of the Leidenfrost effect. If your hand is wet then the sudden large enough increase in temperature will flash boil the water and create a temporary insulating layer. Too much water and it`ll create a steam explosion that flings globs of boiling lead onto your arm. Really, don`t try it at home.

    I think he should have a better body if he doesn`t want to scare the kids.

    I say this as a practicing physicist ( who also needs a few crunches)

    "Your physics teacher is creepy."

    Only because he wants you to join him in the pool for some half naked phun.

    Really, get some board shorts and a t-shirt otherwise no matter the age of students this can be seen as questionable behavior. /prudishness

    Okay. The sexualization and fashionization of the human body has now officially gone too far. If this in any way strikes you as inappropriate I strongly suggest that you sit down and think about your life, anxieties and sexual confidence.
