Topics

You keep complaining about topics popping up that have been done before 20 pages ago, so here's an original prompt. let's see where it ends up, let the conversation develop rather than die out and suddenly start a new topic to 'keep the flow' going, cause usually one topic can flow nicely into another on it's own after a while.

Anyone ever write any really stupid essays for school? I just wrote one for english, where we could pick out own thesis about Macbeth. So I said it was a metaphor for newton's laws of physics, and didn't take the essay seriously at all, and I got a 96 on it.

I got a 96 for not taking it seriously, yet the people that did got lower scores than me.

Fun times, fun times.

RE: Essay

do you still have the essay? you should upload it somewhere if it's digital or scan it and go to step 1 if not. it sounds funny (:

the stupidest essay i've done? haha...my teacher once assigned a paragraph on how to write better essays, and i ended up writing an essay on essentially how it's his fault that our essays suck. i don't think i ever got graded on that. the essays have gotten more interesting over the years from him since then, though.

Stupid essays

Ya, it seems you can still do good while not taking it seriously, as long as the writing and format is good. I once had to write an essay doing a comparison, and I compared rap music to country music, stating how similar they were (in terms of their content and values). As far as I remember, I did pretty good on it.

As for recurring topics, ya, the First Post thing came up just a few weeks ago I think. Not too far back.

Here it is, copy and pasted from the better looking text file. We had to quote both macbeth and the movie scotland p.a. (which was based off of macbeth)

Macbeth as a Metaphor for Newtonian Physics

William Shakespeare's classic play, Macbeth, can be viewed as a metaphor for Newtonian physics, or more specifically, Newton's three laws of motion. The first law of motion is that an object at rest stays at rest until an unbalanced force acts upon it. In the case of Macbeth, the equilibrium of the lives of the characters is what could be considered the "object at rest". The second law of motion is that an object with an unbalanced force acting upon it will accelerate at a constant rate. In Macbeth, an "accelerating object" is whenever a character's personality, emotional state, or life is changing. The third law of motion is that every action has an equal but opposite reaction, where in the case of Macbeth, an action could be compared to the way a character interacts with another character.
Newton's first law of motion is fairly easy to relate to Macbeth. It states that an object at rest or in constant motion will stay at rest or in constant motion until an unbalanced force acts upon it. In the beginning of Macbeth, the welfare of the kingdom and Macbeth's life were balanced and consistent. Nothing major was changing for the kingdom as a whole, until the unbalanced force of Macbeth killing Duncan was introduced into the plot. At this point, the plot started moving forward at a much faster pace, and the downfall of Macbeth was beginning to take place. This outside action sets the play in motion, and without any other outside forces acting on it the play remains in motion until the very end. After murdering Duncan, Macbeth hears a voice mutter "Macbeth shall sleep no more." (Macbeth 2.2.56). This quote shows that this one action will not allow Macbeth to ever rest again, because murdering Duncan has set Macbeth's previously restful life in motion. An object at rest will only stay at rest if nothing acts upon it.
The second law of motion states that a force acting upon an object will cause acceleration. In Macbeth and Scotland P.A., Billy Morrissette's movie which is based on the play but in a modern time, this is proven because every new action that the Macbeths do compile onto each other, creating more problems and accelerating the rate of their demise. In the movie, Mac only had a little trouble trying to keep himself from saying anything that would reveal the fact that he killed Duncan. However, the more he did wrong, such as killing Banquo and continually lying to Macduff, caused him and his wife to spiral into a state of near insanity. The forces of evil which led Mac to commit more crimes caused the rate of his demise to accelerate to the point where it could not be stopped. Mac seeing his friend ask "Why did you kill me?" is a perfect example of his mental demise. If Mac had never killed Banquo, then his mental state would not have ever reached the point where he was hallucinating his ghost, which proves that those acts caused an accelerated downfall of the Macbeths mental states, in line with Newton's second law of motion.
"Every action has an equal but opposite reaction" is the simple form of Newton's third law. This is very apparent in Macbeth, because the entire play is based on a series of cause and effect relationships. The most important one is the whole plot of the play. If one were to reduce the play to one sentence, it would be "Macbeth kills Duncan, and then Macduff kills Macbeth." This illustrates the action, Macbeth killing Duncan, and the equal but opposite reaction, Macduff killing Macbeth. As Macduff states at the end of the play, "Behold where stands [t]h' usurper's cursèd head. The time is free." (Macbeth 5.8.65) The usurper of the throne, Macbeth, has been usurped. This reaction is equal, because it is the same action of usurping through murder as Macbeth usurping Duncan's throne by murdering him, but opposite because this time Macbeth is the victim of the usurping, rather than the usurper.
These examples show how Macbeth can be viewed as a metaphor for Newtonian physics by comparing the forces which control motion in physics to the events which control the plot in Macbeth. The play stays in equilibrium until an event occurs, the events cause an acceleration of plot intensity and number of problems, and no character was able to do something without an equal and opposite consequence. Newton's laws are used to describe the motion of a physical object, however they also do a good job of describing the plot of this classic play.

Stupid Ass Essays
Are you kidding? I love doing essays that teachers just find funny and give you good grades on. I read the Odyssey earlier this year and our teacher made us "write an essay that is about another one of Odysseus' adventures", because that's basically all he does in the book [tell about adventures]. I decided that I'd be my jackass self and write a whole story about how they went to an island and the beginning I took seriously, but then just started getting crazier and crazier. Basically here's an overview: I started out with a nice, creative introduction of them storming an island with no civilization on it. It progressively becomes ridiculous where a giant hole in the ground appear and the people start forming into waves [literally] and are just being crushed by this monster. Odysseus is the only one who survives and he prays...but not only does he pray, but he prays to none other than the God of Rock...Queen [yes the band]. They use their might guitar skillz and vanquish the big-ass dragon which was written actually beautifully.

Jackass Interpretations
Speaking of things like that, have you ever been told to do something like a book report or project which you just took so stupidly on purpose and made a joke out of it. My English teacher [again] told us we had to do a presentation on a book we read during the year. Instead of doing any book, I was an asshole and chose I Am America, And So Can You, Stephen Colbert's book. It was awesome and I aced it!

I tried to last year, but my teacher said that "Fox in Socks" wasn't a difficult enough reading level for me.

I told her to read it out loud then without messing up, but she didn't and told me to pick something else. So I didn't do it, cause it was just an extra credit assignment anyway.

I once wrote a book report about the Catcher in the Rye which consisted entirely of:

"OMG, I tink Holden is KEWT, lol"

My teacher graded it in l337sp33k and told me I was not 1337 enough to write my paper like that. :(

-Essay

Although my English teacher would kill me for some of the repetitiveness and structure [he just likes brief to the point essays], I have to say it's probably one of the most genius things I've ever read. Next time I get something about creative writing I'm definitely going to actually spend time to bullshit my way through it and I'll post it up here when I'm done.

Aw damn, that would've been a freaky deaky dutch essay

By the way, I'm having fun doing campaign posters running for class president, so if anyone has any genius ideas please tell me.

Having the teacher actually grading something in 1337sp33k would be amazing to see.

And I agree with El-Presidente, that was actually a pretty good essay and comparison. BTW, I get Macbeth and Hamlet mixed up: was Macbeth the one with the witches wherein he "wouldn't be killed by anyone woman-born" or some such?

glaiel's "new" topic, how he got an A without trying...

no but seriously, I wrote an essay last year about whether "Metamorphosis" was fantastic fiction, or something surrealism, it trumped all other high school essays I had written up till then in stupidity, because you were basically supposed to say whether it was one thing or another which are essentially the same and unimportant.

Also, never read metamorphosis.

Hahaha, you really got carried away. didn't you?
And Glaiel, that essay was pretty creative, but if you see it that way, Newton's laws can be compared almost to anything.

I think my most stupid essays are the ones i write for the filosofy class, i need to write about a book 'Sophy's world', but instead of a direct report of the book the teacher wants an analysis in which we write our 'filosofies' based on the book, so if for example we read about x filosopher that says that the world is an illusion i have to write what i think about that. I always end up filling the pages with all my random and stupid toughts like 'what if we are inside a tv show' or something. I also ended up discovering that aliens exist and a lot of stupid stuff. The teacher has never returned the essays but i always get good grades so either he liked them or doesnt read them at all..

Looks like someone was studying more for phys than for english :P

But seriously, essays are the easiest thing ever. I think it's cause english teachers have bullshited their way through tons of essays in University that now they already know your bullshitting too and as long as it makes any sort of partial sense, they give you marks.

But some teachers actually give a shit about what you write > .>

Heard this one guy tried to see if you could get anything worse than an F. He swore on his assignment and in the end when he got it back he got the F but also a note below saying "See me after class".

Sucks for him. =(

I had a friend who was a total slacker, more so than me. He didn't read any of To Kill A Mocking Bird, so when the quiz came you had to write a diary entry from the view point of Boo Radley.

My friend knew he was going to fail, so he just wrote about how Boo Radley was a warrior, and how he killed a dragon. He even drew a picture of him with a sword.

He got an 84 if I remember. From that point on, we realized our teacher didn't read everything he graded.

Also, Juke Box hero is an addicting song...

I couldn't think of any hilarious, witty essays that I've written... but I do remember the time where my friends and I made a collage on To Kill A Mockingbird about the supposed Mayella Ewell rape scene (which of course, if you read the book, never actually happened).

What we did was take OJ Simpson, a biking girl, and a happy woman, and conglomerated it into a funny collage.

...To put a long story short, it got rejected by the teacher and the vice principal -- surprisingly, not for the sexual content, but for the fact that the black man, Tom Robinson, was pictured as an evolutionary creature (a decision by my friend purely because it was in the right position, not intended to be hurtful -- srsly), and was deemed racist. We made a new one.

Though we lost the epic creation, I recreated it just now in Photoshop using similar pictures, for your enjoyment:

Haha sorry I didn't know that topic came up a lot...like I said, I just started comin here like 10-15 pages ago

Essays:

Alright, so I'm only in Middle School so we don't really write essays or anything, but one time in Geography we had to do a presentation about a USA state. I had Connecticut, so I decidedly called it Connect-A-Cut, and to say the least, I packed it full with old internet memes. I put rick rolls, Shoop da whoop, o rly? ya rly, some lolcats, and at least one funny meme on each slide (i had about 10, plus 2 extra for the O rly? on one slide, and the Ya rly on the other slide) I think it was pretty awesome since every one laughed even though no one got the joke except for my friend.
