  • Anyone can dig a ditch, but it takes a real man to finish the sentence.
  • James : “ I hate when people are cool with their teachers”

    Me, a homeschooler: laughs nervously 😀
  • It’s been over 5 years.
    I still don’t have an answer to the riddle.
    But my first thought is still always gonna be “IT TAKES A REAL MAN TO DIG HIS GRAVE”

    7:17 My teacher told us this puzzle when I was 16 The answer was "Anyone can dig a ditch but it takes a real man to dig further"
  • It seems that the relationship between students and teachers are quite different in the US than where I'm from. In Denmark it's normal to be on pretty much the same level as your teacher. You always call them by their first name, chat about events in your life and their life and sometimes you'll even keep visiting them after graduating.

    Being “cool” with my teacher was the only way I passed my bio class.

    “Anyone can dig a ditch, but it takes a real man to get education to escape a restaurant.”
  • "Anyone can dig a ditch, but it takes a real man to spend his time on something else that isn't completely pointless"

    Anyone can dig a ditch, but it takes a real man to give it a purpose.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for finally explaining that private schools aren’t usually super fancy. My school (it’s a private school) is so low funded that it is literally a hallway and 9 classrooms. The TINY principals office and one bathroom for each gender I mean open the door and there’s the toilet and there’s the sink. And all the teachers teach AT LEAST 2 classes

  • Okay, so, I think I went to the same charter school as this guy, and I had the same poetry teacher! And yeah, "Mr. Poe" was exactly like that when I was there, as well. I actually liked poetry, so he really liked me, but I could tell other people weren't having fun. The lateral thinking puzzles were more of a math class thing, though! Also, I don't know who your choir teacher was, but the one I had would never say something like that to a student.

    As someone who loves writing poetry and has loved learning Latin for the past two years, I'm gonna say Latin is far more useful and I never actually learned much in literature classes in high school that helped with my writing, but learning grammar and roots of words from Latin has
  • I’m a writer, and I believe the answer is:

    “Anyone can dig a ditch. But it takes a real man to fill in the hole.”

    What I think it means is that when you’re trying to solve a problem, you’re just gonna dig your hole deeper and deeper. But if you’re better at problem solving, you can fill in the problems and be back on top.

    Any man can dig a ditch, but it takes a real man to fill it. Anyone can make things worse for themselves, but it takes courage to turn it around and try to make it better. Also, congrats on #1 on trending!
  • As a Liberal Arts student who has studied Latin for five years, I'd just like to point out that Latin actually is very useful. If you wanna take Spanish afterwards. Because Latin is like Spanish on hard mode, so once you've taken it and then are presented with Spanish vocabulary words that are similar in root to Latin ones, but follow English rules, it's SOO much easier.

    Also you can read all the school mottos and laugh when the English translation is inaccurate. ;)
