AKA Theory of Knowledge, basically the class no IB student took seriously. Makes you wonder whether or not your whole existence is a sham after just a semester of teaching.
Non-IB Student : "Yo dude can I borrow a pencil; I have a math test next period."
IB Student: "How can we prove a pencil is actually a pencil, or is it a pen?"
Non-IB Student: "You on drugs, brah?"
IB Student: "Even worse: TOK."
Non-IB Student: "Ah, nature's methamphetamine."

Shorthand for Totally Obfuscating Krap- oh, I mean, Theory of Knowledge. A subject required by the IB (International Baccalaureate) for high school students, in order to earn a maximum of the three points and a minimum of complete schooling failure, it is usually optional and comes with comparatively little or no risk to students taking this subject as part of a Philosophy degree in university.

It is an excellent generator of anger, irritation, insanity and the odd musical rendition (see The TOK Song by Captain Angry and the BadMoods)
in conversation: "Man, I hate TOK."

in lyric: "I hate TOK."

A pointless class.

Required by IB, TOK teaches students how to respond to totally bogus statements and opinions they don't even care about. The class consists of material from famous dead guys like Descarte, Dochevesky, and Wittgenstein.

The first day everyone is super excited to learn about the meaning of life, but 15 minutes into the first class everyone already knows that this is going to be a long semester. This is the class where most IB kids learn and hone their insane BS skills.

Student 1: Hey, did you write that paper on the nature of man for TOK yet?
Student 2: Psh, I wrote that on the bus, the usual BS...
Student1: I feel ya; I feel like this is becoming second nature to me.
