Today, my AP teacher once again accused me of plagiarism. Apparently the words "demise," "ultimately," and "rural," are too sophisticated for an 11th grade AP student to use and MUST have been copied from the Internet. FML

Ultimately, your rural demise is imminent.

Jokes on them; if you're telling the truth then you're clearly more intelligent than they think you could be, good for you!

Show it anyway

it's because so many mexicans cheat in school, the teachers are blaming everyone these days

that's a terrible AP teacher, we had words like surreptitious and deleterious. OP, find out who the department head is of English there and talk to them about it

but we will judge you. nice tits.

The use of your sophisticated words ultimately led to your demise, leading you to run naked in rural fields. 

Just explain the meaning of the words in question and why you chose them. Will surprise her and proof you're innocent.

Ah your just upset that you got caught. Walk into class reading a book or something next time and the teacher might think more of you, but preferably not captain underpants in this scenario. But by all means read the cptn in your spare time!

*prove. nice job me.

rural fields? as opposed to the urban fields??

Whichever tickles your pickle

If that's the only evidence your teacher has she's an idiot and she's probably just jealous because you're smarter than she is.

Even if OP doesn't know the meanings of those words off the top of his/her head, single words are no reason to accuse someone of plagiarism. Even a half-wit English teacher should know that kids have access to a dictionary or, God forbid, a thesaurus. Either OP is exaggerating, or that teacher needs to be fired, then at least take some English classes before being allowed to teach it.

What on earth? Our teacher expects us to know what phantasmagorical means. Get your underqualified teacher fired.

54- there wasn't even a combo going on

Damn it 36, why do you have to torture us with that picture!?

well i think 1s pic is torture ;)

Maybe op lives in a rural area?

60- Phantasmagorical- 1.) adj. Characterized by rapid changes in light intensity and color. 2.) adj. The quality of blurring real and imaginary elements as in a dream. My Honors English class just did this word. We're reading The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. :)

Go to that fucking teacher, fucking beat his ass, and while hes on the ground wimpering, yell "SCHOOLS OUT MOTHA FUCKA!!!!" then jiz on him and call him a bitch

I BET OP LIVES IN LOUISIANA! THEIR EDUCATION SUCKS!

It reminds me of my old honors 10 English teacher.

Why does #1 have so many thumbs down? it wasn't nearly that bad of comment. I'm thinkin her picture is bringing out all the jealous bitches hatin

Hehehehe well said.

I'm not even in high school and I use ultimately all the time ; what on earth is this teacher talking about ?

Ikr I was in elementary school when I knew the said words

Ultimately, your rural demise is imminent.

Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious?

153- Combo breakers are so rudimentary and immature. Just kidding.

intriging... pretty sure i spelled that wrong

This kid in my class copied his entire life science project off of wikipedia with strange letters and small numbers in brackets and he didn't get caught WTF

you gotta be classy with that shitt

you are all foolishly malcontents. Rural demise- your open area died.

Jokes on them; if you're telling the truth then you're clearly more intelligent than they think you could be, good for you!

there us just a software that checks for plagiarism instead of a dumbass teachers hunch

yeah my school district uses it, I can't remember what's it's called though =

Those aren't even very sophisticated words.

try being more dumb ... just saying

Next time don't plagiarize words from the dictionary; invent your own!

Yea, because AP kids are dumb.

4 I hope that wasn't an actual advice and you're being sarcastic.

I was but apparently 60 people don't understand that.

Next time don't use bigs words...

Totally. Sacrifice using your vocabulary to its fullest extent to appease the lesser intellectuals. Sound advice. /sarcasm

I'm sorry, but "sarcasm" was too big a word for me and I'm too lazy to look it up in a dictionary or that dinosaur thing.

You are one stupid motherfucker.

Actually, you are the inane one, for you have not realized that his comment was sarcastic.

Big words like "big"?

Please use one silubole words. I am not good at know big words.

63-actually you are an idiot for not knowing how to spell insane

inane is a word.

98- Do yourself a favor and look up inane AND insane.

98 is a motherfucking fail. I'm in 9th grade Pre-AP, and we learned that word 6 or so weeks ago. Good job 98! Now prepare for your lambasting...

I cracked up at your comment 98. Thanks for the lulz.

why are people so proud that they learned a word using a f... class read more and you'll learn more words without a teacher telling you to learn it PS: being good at school, does not mean a person is intelligent or not, it just means you have discipline i'm not calling anybody dumb, but don't feel better than anybody either, and telling people to dumb down to fit someone's expectations is the dumbest god damn fucking thing i have ever heard

Poe's law runs amok.

r u real white boy

That was ultimately your demise.

6 I like your picture haha

Yeah, the picture kinda softens the blow to my epically bad comment.

It's because of students who do cheat that make the rest of us look bad. They act like we're incapable of intelligent thought when we actually try.

The mouse in her pocket.

We, leprechauns.

certainly wasn't talking about any of you. it was a general statement

well considering that there should really have been a "been" between "have" and "copied" i can't blame them.

Question: what's AP? The first things Google gives me are all about 'the Associated Press' and I get a feeling that that's not what it's all about. OP, your teacher is an ass. An unprofessional ass. Pupils are allowed to use the internet as a source of inspiration whilst making homework, as long as they just don't copy-paste the shit or change a couple of words. That's plagiarism. Using difficult words is something your teacher should be encouraging. I don't know how it's there, but here, in Belgium, we need to have proof for plagiarism. I once found an identical copy of a task on the internet, I printed it and tadaah, plagiarism proved. If there is no proof, there is no plagiarism.

Advanced Placement.

AP is advanced placement. it gives high school students the chance to prepare for college and get college credits while still in high school.

But I don't know what advanced placement is :( I'm searching for a term people in Europe (specific: Belgium) use for it. Edit, thank you Softballer. Now I know what it is, and it's something we don't have. I think...

22 your Christ on a bike expression made me laugh so freakin hard. I loved it.

He does work for the site you know.

AP stands for Advanced Placement and you can receive college credit for AP courses, depending on what school you're planning to go to.

#57 I've tried hard looking for your point, but I just don't see it. OP, your teacher is an idiot. If he just accuses you but nothing really comes out of it, ignore him- some teachers are just plain bitter and will do everything they can to make other people's lives just as miserable. If it affects you in some way, even the slightest, talk to the principal about it.

45: I'm guessing you don't have AP courses because your educational system isn't ass-backwards. ALL students should be prepared for college by graduation, whether they plan to attend or not.

Alternate Penguin

AP is pretty much just-to put it simply- high school classes for smart people

Smart people? No. All you need is a little dedication. Freshmen college courses aren't even all that difficult.

It's not college prep, it's the opportunity to earn college credits while in High School. AP or Advances Placement classes are an opportunity to take a college equivalent class. They are usually pretty difficult and the test is designed to challenge you on an incredibly high level. It is hosted by College Board (SAT too). I would know, I've taken four :).

AP is like a collage class but in High School. It is an advanced class(for a high school student) which makes this even more of a fml.

djpeepee...AP is short for Advanced Placement. It's an honors course that allows you to take a placement exam once you've graduated high school to earn college credit and allow you to skip classes at the university level.

82, that would be great, but take my school, for example. They had to cut some AP and honors classes last semester because kids were failing 9th grade on level biology for the third time. Those kids sicken me with how quickly they throw away their opportunities. No matter how much you teach them, they're not going to care about school enough to learn.

It might be Career Studies That's what we call studying for the sake of continuing to study or studying to find work.

AP classes are going to start having high dollar marks next to them in the near future because there is no funding for them.. so many will be better waiting for college to pay for them.. rather than get a jumpstart in HS

AP is advanced placement. it's about the same a a bacloreate or a Cambridge study program. it helps you earn college credits when your in high school. They are very challenging classes, harder then honors or gifted.

185- a collage class for high school?! Oh my, but collages are such an advanced art form. Try coloring inside the lines, I hear you're still working on it.

AP basically makes the course a bit tougher so that you can get more high school credits faster. P.S. what's belgium like?

AP means Advanced Placement class
