Remember when you had to write "I will not talk while the teacher is speaking," 100 times? (I got that assignment a few times -- maybe yours followed a different theme.)

A judge in Hawaii has ordered Daren Young to write 144 nice things about his ex-girlfriend -- one compliment for each of the nasty phone calls and texts he is accused of directing at her while violating the terms of a protection order.

“For every nasty thing you said about her, you’re going to say a nice thing,” Loo told Young. “No repeating words.”

In addition to the unorthodox sentence, Young was also ordered to pay $2,400 in fines, serve two years of probation, and perform 200 hours of community service.
