          1. @dlcentaur I'm doing fine, my english class got chewed out by the teacher so we have an additional paragraph to write. but that is extremely simple

            1. @decibel Oh, that's a bummer, but a paragraph is not all that much. Why did your teacher get mad at your class?

              1. @dlcentaur no one read the assigned reading

                  1. @dlcentaur well i'm reading Huckleberry Finn, and the assignment was to get to some part of the book past 200. I'm on 163 and need to get to 362 by moday

                    1. @decibel By Monday you mean? At least you have a week to get it done! :D

                    2. @decibel You should propose a convincing argument to your teacher that reading this novel will do nothing to further your understanding or perspective on the human condition, because the novel's emphasis on setting and outdated circumstances outweigh the universal truths the book scarcely attempts to deliver in its otherwise well-written narrative.

                      1. @crusader8 let me use this... PLEASE

                        1. @decibel just be sure to quote examples on the book to reinforce the idea that the traditional reading requirements of Tom Sawyer and/or Huck Finn should be challenged since the only strong support to require kids to read them is Clemens' effective way of illustrating that particular time and place in the US during that time period. Unfortunately this and the writer's apparent wit which shows throughout the two books overshadow the intent of telling a story about coming of age and conflicting with at-the-time current social challenges. And don't get me started on early 20th century fiction

            1. @decibel It's just my cool. It seems easier to call it magic than to hypothesize the cause.
