    I'm just doing a spell-check of my final essay of the term and I've just come to the conclusion that the essay is crap beyond belief. I've worked a fortnight on this piece of crap and it reads like a child's book report.

    Usually I think my work is sub-par but this time it really sucks. The only good thing I can say is that the spelling is great. So at least I won't 10% taken off of the 8% this essay will get for poor presentation.

    And what really sucks is that I used an article as a source, then having just read back on the article realised I had lifted more than I thought I had from said article. Feckery.

    I have a few hours left to radically overhaul the damn thing but right now I just want rid of the fucking thing.

    /end rant.

    have you tried including pictures to flesh it out a bit? some lovely dogs might look nice, or a house maybe?

    No, but I've changed the title to: Paradise Lost vs The Iliad: Battle of the Misogynistic Fuckwits

    Gutted, mate. Maybe it's not so bad and won't take your average down that much.

    In any case, I'd blame Brian and Busy for making you post in the vigilante thread last night, you could get utterly wasted after you hand it in to make it all better.
    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I need 62% on this one really. Though first year doesn't count I just don't like handing in bad work.

    I can't really blame B&B as I think, with hindsight, my essay was always going to stink. I mean, what sort of bloke tries to write a feminist criticism of epic poetry? A fecking idiot is who.

    I shall be getting mostly wasted tonight.

    Maybe if you'd switched from Fosters to Martini with Apple Pucker for the duration of the essay composition, you'd have delivered a feminine critique with more aplomb


    Anyway, have a good night

    Half the battle is to get the reader interested.

    Battle of the Misogynistic Fuckwits certainly has me interested.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I declared Paradise Lost the winner because Brad Pitt really sucked in Troy.




    Well, it's all handed in now so I have 5 months off now 'til next term. Could do some preparatory read I guess...or watch cartoons and build a fort out of Foster's cans.

    My fave part of this thread was Arcadia's post, re the dog pictures.

    It added a bit of light relief to an otherwise serious subject, enhancing the piece greatly.

    Chebus, did you critique my poetism re manker in a jar. I'd love to know your opinion on it.
