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.
