I am forever baffled by your taste.

<kaiju01> Yeah, I'm kind of a dick.

<Deacon> I'm not, however, played by a homosexual child star.

Man, I bet that 14 yr old was pissed.

"Thanks for fucking up a good thing, mom."

Anyways, essays can be real easy if you are a great bullshitter. I'm not one so my work suffered quite a bit with classes I didn't give a damn about.

This is how I wrote almost all of my essays. I've written an essay about how and why Nixon had John Lennon killed and one about how Superman is communist (and this was before Red Son).

My greatest BS essay was for my sociology class. We were assigned an essay to write about a specific book (don't recall what it was) at the beginning of the semester. It wasn't due until the last week. Of course I neither started the essay or even opened the book until the night before it was due. I ended up reading 6 or 7 random pages and writing about them. I ended up getting a B on the assignment.

My old roommate wrote an in-class paper on why he thought the test subject was terrible and got a damn B. I'm not sure but I think it was a criminal justice course.

Did it. Manual typewriter. No typing class. Teacher wouldn't accept pages with more than three uses of correction fluid on them. Correction fluid could not be used on more than one word.

My grandmother saved my sanity: her typewriter had a correction tape. All one had to do was backspace, flip a switch that moved from the regular ink tape to the correction tape, and type the same letter. My parents found a manual way of doing this through a hand-held film that one could simply slide between the paper and the letter indicator. A bit more tedious, but better than going to my grandmother's to write a paper. Either method was also either invisible or acceptable to the teacher, as I would usually have a couple of dozen corrections per page.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.
