Just for Laughs: A Lesson in Library Etiquette

Now that the new school year is fully underway, you've likely been spending a lot of time hitting the books in the past few weeks. You may even have a test or two under your belt, and midterms are already looming ominously on the horizon. All of that studying can be stressul, and the only thing that could make it worse is an obnoxious fellow student with zero self-awareness.

That's where Justin Stuart of the prankster YouTube channel JStuStudios enters the picture. Stuart filmed himself going into school libraries and shattering the silence by loudly eating cumbersome foods (like a large baguette and a whole watermelon), much to the chagrin of the students around him. Their reactions range from mild amusement to barely-restrained outrage.

Take a study break, grab a snack, and check out the hilarious hijinks below.

Fun fact: Does the sound of people chewing, crunching, and slurping make you flip out? You could have a case of misphonia, which refers to an extreme hatred of certain sounds and is an actual neurological condition. Looks like Stuart's noisy noshing may have brought out the misphonia in the students in this video!
