i read that, a 61 at the college level IS failing so it's somewhat believable. however to believe anyone is that stupid to turn something like that in... thats a little sketchy. although i have done worse in my years of education. mainly on an 8th grade MAJOR report worth like 20% of your grade.
the watts energy project. the objective record your energy readings from your thing outside your house for a month straight and then make conclusions about how much energy you use. try and find a way to cut down on energy. first we totally made up the energy stuff. to conserve energy we unplugged our grandma and "went amish". then as an extra credit thing you could write about one environmental issue (write a fake letter to the mayor or something). we chose to write about a small divit in my backyard. we went on to curse the mayor off for allowing such a catastrophe. our methods of solving the problem were a bit... yeh. we signed it from the communist party (no offense to any communists, but when you live in a very conservative republican town, with an attitude toward communism remaniscent of McCarthy, saying something like that isnt regarded as a good move)
oh yeh then we covered the report in post it notes, duck taped it shut, put a 5 dollar bribe in it, and scotch taped an action figure to the cover. my partner for the report got a 70 and i got a 0. (this teacher hated me, her first response was its obvious i didnt even help. then after reading it she took the well its obvious all this crap in here was put in by me. doesnt really matter though...)
essay i have planned for this year: as you may know there was a book published in the past few years about lincoln being gay (im not sure ont he contents). anyway our history teacher is a "confederate" (not really, but that would be funny). so to get browny points and to see a funny reaction me and my friends are going to write "Lincoln is Gay" in the top of our essays coming up soon.
another funny thing i wrote for that class infact was an essay about FDR and the new deal. i didnt really care that much about the essay or the grade so i basically said that FDR was a socialist and that most of his policies were socialist. those that werent were definitely not democratic. to my surprise is i got a very decent grade.
that is enough talking about funny stuff ive turned in...
