It's not really an assignment, but anything Irish.

Irish is a dead language but we still have to learn it too get into college! And I am so bad at it!

I have a test tomorrow...
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Most english assignments we do are useless. Last term we had to analize a tv ad. I mean, come on. Tv ads? no one pays attentention to them anyway. RE assignments are also really bad.

Thats not weird.

I had to write an abstract of a paper about the population dynamics of caddisfly larvae. I didn't actually consider it weird because there's bound to be something weirder I'll end up having to do but it was boring as hell.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Reading (or arguably, even interacting with) Wuthering Heights. A more hideously miserable and loathesome book you'll be hard pressed to find. It makes the necronomicon look cheerful.

Summer reading back in high school: Gods, Graves, and Scholars and Modern Times.  I think my classmates burned the author in effigy.
Probably not a Goat, either.

A wise Surface to Air Missile once said about marrying 9 year olds in Saudi Arabia "Its pretty hard to tell if a 9 year old is going to be hot when she grows up, kids change a lot, usually, seems like a bad system. That cute little nine year old you married could end being a fat, zitty teenager."

I had a 3 minute speech about a samurai king who saved me from a burning house.
I got an A for it.

I once had to give an impromptu 3 minute speech about buttons.
