Humor: School Teachers’ Views of the Internet

The following BBS post makes fun of what school teachers say about the Internet. From, translated by CDT:

Politics teacher: It objectively reflects the Chinese people’s improved standards of living.

Chinese teacher: Mao’s (literally meaning cat, a homonym of modem) real name is modulator-demodulator. It is an indispensable hardware for web surfing.

History teacher: The Web was formally named in 1990, but the idea of the Internet dates back to 1945.

English teacher: WWW is short for World Wide Web. Its Chinese name is Quanqiu Xinxi Wang (global information net).

Biology teacher: It will affect the metabolism of the human body to sit in front of the computer screen to surf the web for a long time.

Math teacher: How long does it take for Xiaoming to download a 1,000-kilobyte file at an average speed of 5 kilobytes per second?

Chemistry teacher: The speed of the Internet connection is like that of a magnesium ribbon’s reaction with water. It is awfully slow!

Music teacher: Remember to delete the MP3 files downloaded from the Internet within 24 hours.

Painting teacher: The web address for France’s Musée du Louvre is Paris. Check it out when you have time.

Sports teacher: I heard there’s a pair of sneakers with springs being displayed on Nike’s website. I am wondering if I can buy them online.

Headmaster: Last night, some student spread rumors in my name in a certain Internet chatroom, saying that the school would have a day off tomorrow. Who on earth was that? Turn yourself in!
