Ahh, The Naivety of Youth...

#1 Post by Roostophe » Fri Aug 22, 2008 7:15 pm

I've just been looking through one of my old school English books, and some of the stuff I wrote in there is the most retarded stuff I have ever read!

You could say it is as retarded as the stupid threads on Real AC, but the excuse I have was that I was only 10. But, truth be told, this stuff really is stupid.

For instance, my news story of a team of 10 year-olds beating the Brazilian football team 10-0 (5 of which were own goals), a rather retarded book review which was supposed to be brief, but ended up being 6 pages long (The teacher wasn't happy about that, red ink was always a bad thing...), and a "poem" about the World Wrestling Federation with absolutely ridiculous rhymes. (Stone Cold Steve Austin, he likes to go Champion Bustin'...WTF! It's as bad as the Anfield Rap! Seriously, it's making me CRINGE just reading it again! And I read this out to the class...*vast facepalm*)

I'm now using the book to write down Hiragana and Katakana as part of my attempt to understand Japanese writing. But I wonder if anyone here can recall any amazingly-bad stuff they wrote in their books at school. (I'll probably look for more stupid things I've written and share them with you.)

Last week found something that clearly isn't used in schools these days. A spelling notebook from when I must've been about 9 or 10. Had spelling tests every week I think and I nearly always got full marks. 8)

Oh yeah, I have old books from my primary school with stories that would make a soap plot look original. :el:

Still, you only learn by fucking up. :pirate:

I remember writing a Christmas story and just took all the character names from Jurassic Park. :lol:

Oh that's perfectly fine, you just call it a homage. :wink:

I remember a lovely day in English once when our teacher had asked us to write a short story for 'creative writing'. After what must have been at least six or seven stories being read ending in "...and it was all a dream!". The rest of the lesson was concluded with why that sort of conclusion did not, and rarely ever would, make for an interesting and valid ending to anything. :lol:

The stories ranged from, "I was president of the world for the day!" to "I had the perfect day eating buscuits!" or something along those lines. Still, more than any other lesson that sticks out in my mind for some reason. Some kids were flabbergasted to find out the stories they had been writing for years were worthless in the eyes of this teacher!

when i was in primary 6 the teacher would always ask us to write what we did at the week end every monday
but i never did much so i would right about what ever south park episode i watched that week end.

The funny thing is it took a while till she relised what i was righting cause she had never watched it before
till my fellow class members realized what i was doing so they started to do the same thing
and boy she was mad so when she ask me about it i fought what would chef do..
"hay baby,
Gonna make love to ya woman.
gonna lay you down by the fire.
And caress your womanly body,
make ya moan and perspire.
Gonna get those juices flowin'
we makin' love baby, love baby,
love baby, love, love, love, baby

(may not be that song but it was some love making song)

That didn't help.. :el:

In year 2 we had spelling tests, and were given the list of words a week before, I'd keep them in my tray which was next to me, and just cheat...the teacher only found out half a year later xD

Also, in English in year 7...my handwriting was so damn terrible, not even I can read it anymore xD

In year six I stole paper clips all the time, which actually led to a school shortage xD

Also, I had this special writing wedge due to my special needs, let's just say, I used it more of a pillow and my year 6 teacher's most common phrase to me was 'Stop eating your bookmark!'

in 1st year they removed me from english to make room for some one else
so my grammer and spelling was bad till i moved school where it improved

i also didn't get to do home ec because they said i would have to pay for it
i got a ticket to pay for my lunch i doubt i have money to pay for that

and this was a public school so looking on it now i was a bit shocked
