Teischan (12) was struggling with metric conversion so I was trying to find resources that might help her. Came across this. The table on the left looked just what I was looking for. I was going to print it for her. Then I saw the example. That is EXACTLY the type of conversion she was having trouble with.
I had to do a double-take. Ahhh! Millimeters are SMALLER than meters. Ahhh! I had to check with a calculator to see that I was NOT cracking up.
Of course it is WRONG. Very wrong. SHE (and it is a she (and I am not talking about Teischan)) got it wrong. Got it backwards.
I send her a polite e-mail because we have all goofed on the Internet. She was snooty and told me that she was CORRECT. That was SAD.

That I am a avid fan of Fidelity is well known and documented (and I have been a Fidelity customer for over 25 years).
As far as I am concerned Fidelity and Amazon are the TWO BEST companies in the whole wide World. Everyday on this computer I have, all day, one tab with Fidelity on full-time and another with Amazon. Fidelity takes great care of me.
Yes, I have issues with their online system and as THEY have started to appreciate I know what I am talking about when it comes to that system since I use it more than most.
So this NOTIFICATION this morning cracked me up!
Of course, as an ex-programmer, I know why and HOW it happened BUT I also know that if I had written the code (or had been involved in the code review) this would never have happened. Yes, I notified Fidelity and they will be suitably embarrassed.
