High school a microcosm of U.S.

Generously sent in by someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

For this assignment, the graduate student had to (among other things) go to a local school to observe. A part of the assignment also was supposed to include research through scholarly websites. Check out the source of the first quote.

I realized I forgot a comment. The comment on "in one breath" is supposed to read "Where are we, the book of James?" because I thought it had something about people that say one thing in one breath and then pour our curses with another. But then I couldn't find the actual quote and no one probably would have gotten the reference anyway. Including myself apparently.

Yeah, this one was great. If I was still working at a university, I would try to gather finds to send in. I hope others can.

So this was written by a GRAD STUDENT?

I love your website, and some of these papers make me pee myself laughing, but man, sometimes you are harsh! A lot of the stuff you criticize isn't half bad.

Nothing harsh about the commentaries on this paper. This guy is a graduate student and writes like a 7th grader. Pathetic.

I love that the "unique" system for shipping books from one school to another for checkout involves either someone dropping the books off if they happen to be going by or just having the student come and pick it up. That's real unique. Man. MAN.

Thanks for another winning post, ahfb.

Also, cartoon of "fear and loathing, please" is truly inspired.

Yeah, a "unique" system would be if the books were delivered via eagle.

Or a Sherman tank.

Did anyone else find it absolutely familiar that he kept referring to the librarian as simply "Dale"? Great post.

Haha, I particularly liked the "Who needs funding?" comic ...
True story: My high school had absolutely no money (and when they did, they spent it on stupid things such as painting the lockers instead of buying textbooks), and as a result, my calculus class senior year did not have textbooks, but rather, copies made from the one book we did have. It was kind of hard to solve equations when all you had as a reference were a select few pages.

James 3:10 "Out of the same mouth come forth blessing and cursing. It is not proper, my brothers, for these things to go on occurring this way."

See, you weren't the only one who made that connection. I knew what you were talking about immediately. =)
