Update: Adam Hilliker was recently found alive in a wooded area near Seatle. Contrary to previous reports, he is not dead. He was, however, brutally raped.

Sqerdagent - That means that the amount of kilometers in one mile is more than one, making a mile bigger. The fact that several of the comments insist the teacher was right (tho he admitted he was wrong) makes this ytmnd all the more relevant
December 18th, 2007
(0)
I think the fact that he 1'd it seems to point to the contrary he probably saw that the number 1.6... Km is bigger than 1 Mi and mistook it for meaning a Kilometer is more than a mile. This is a very common mistake believe it or not and is probably the same mistake the teacher made. Yet in both cases it really is no excuse the teacher should have caught it way before and the Sqerdagent and the idiots who are posting 1 km is more than 1 mi should be more sure before they post some pissy comment.

May 23rd, 2006
(2)
Even if it's real I just don't find it very outrageous. I can't possibly know the specifics of the situation, but from what's in the letter the teacher didn't punish you because you corrected him, but because you were making a big fuss about it. And suddenly the issue is too gray for me to laugh, or to care.
December 18th, 2007

Being that the majority of YTMNDers are nerds that a fair rationalization that he made a big fuss. All us nerds get frustrated with the dumbness of teachers and often take things too far to be right.

in all honesty, I can see why a teacher would give detention for this. "the teacher is lying to you" is a lot less respectful than "excuse me, I think you have it backwards" but 5'd because the teacher didn't know this simple fact

Wow... enigma11 is a real moron. It's not funny because the teacher "was stupid enough to later think he was right" (great grammar enigma). It's funny because enigma11 was stupid enough to get pissy and arrogant when he miss read the the letter. It says the teacher claimed a kilometer is more than a mile and the student said a mile is more than a kilometer.

You kept that from 1994? If that really is a genunine letter sent to your parents, then your teacher was a complete piece of sh*t, and a f*cking Nazi.

The school system is f*cked up. If he knew you were right (as per the letter), why did he insist on his false statement? Why was he teaching his class the wrong information?

I believe you, as I used to do that sort of stuff at school all the time - but I got away with it because my dad was president of the teacher's union and the other teachers were scared of him. LOL.

This teacher may have been Hitler-esque in saying that he was better off to accept his teachings without question, but really, I think the letter speaks more about the user's intelligence than it does the teacher's. This kind of comedy writes itself. 5 stars!
