    If I have $1 and I owe you $1 but I give you $1 different than the $1 I owe you, then I now have $1 and you have $1. Therefore I just created a dollar out of nowhere and the world is $1 richer.

    Science, bitch!

    If I say I have $1 and I give you $1, then you think I have $0, but if I then pull out and show you that I still have $1 and you're an idiot you might conclude "Omg, you just made $1 appear out of nothing" but if you're smart you might conclude "So you lied to me originally when you said you had only $1."

    God damn it, science. Why you so smart?

    Actually, he doesn't owe his mom and dad $49 each.

    He owes them $49.50 each. That is where that dollar came from.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    Nope. The dollar didn't come from anywhere. The dollar could just as easily be thought of as being an extra cost for the shirt (instead of it being a $97 shirt, it could easily have been a $98 shirt, where he returned the remaining $2 to his parents). He simply decided to keep the dollar, but it doesn't affect his debt -- he's only delaying paying it back. Eventually he'll have to come up with $98 to pay his parents back. He's already got $1 of that, so he needs only an additional $97 to meet the full amount owed.

    Well, the teacher was a he, and he didn't lie for no reason, he was wrong in his knowledge, and a student corrected him. He could not take that he didn't know everything, so he stuck to his guns. After the incident, I'm guessing he looked it up, and found he was indeed wrong, but could not gracefully bow out, so took a different avenue to justify the detention he gave. Egos can be dangerous things.

    He is teacher and didn't know a mile is bigger than a kilometer?! This is fucking embarrassing, a 3rd grader would know that. If I was that teacher I would stfu and hope no one ever got wind of such a failure. I sure as hell wouldn't make a big deal and write letters showing how uninformed I am on very basic things.
