We've all been describing Sleet's gender by alternatively changing pronouns for almost three years now. I don't intend to change my writing style. :P

I think it's pronounced She'he.

Maybe I'm weird, but enough temperature for me is about 17/18 °C (62.6 °F) :P

but Sleet has stated that she prefers the alternating pronouns, so Beagle and I respect his wishes

That's the final word on the matter. *giggles* Nobody has any obligation to use specific pronouns to refer to Sleet.

It's just impossible to describe Sleet with specific pronouns. Sleet is so unusual, that it's simply impossible to classify him/her in classic way ;)

So you know what I enjoy? Well, this is probably just part of my quirky sense of humor, but for my English classes, I prefer to write my argumentative papers on topics that no one else really has the originality to do. They all get caught up in the classic topics found in argumentative writing, and they don't realize just how much fun they could have with a paper if they decided to write about something entirely off-the-wall that might even make the professor squirm a little bit from the moxy a student had to write about such a topic.

For example, in my ENG 112 class, we have to write about pathos found in arguments. We can find these in "political cartoons, advertisements, or photographs."

So while the professor is probably going to get a lot of dull and boring "cut and dry" examples of exaggerated politics or weight loss ads (based upon what I've seen in the classroom forum), I decided to take a different approach and make the professor laugh a little bit. And since most of y'all are guys, I'll just keep my topic to myself for your own sake.

But do know that it's original, it does adhere to the assignment requirements, and I'll definitely make a good grade on it.

It's always the most fun to write the unexpected paper. Not only does the teacher notice it more, it makes you feel like less of a drone.

And yes, alternating between "he" and "she" is my preferred method of addressing.

Speaking of you and your foxy self, I was wondering if you wanted to collaborate on one of my papers (okay, it's half a page long) with me? You'd get a kick out of it.

I once had an outline for a paper about how The Cat in the Hat was an allegory for the sexual revolution of the 60's/70's. Unfortunately my teacher was less enthused about the idea than I and it was never written. Unfortunately I don’t think I’d be able to write it for a college level class so it’s filed away in the cool ideas I never got around to doing file for now.

"Sleet I think my paper needs more description on the emotional appeal of a tampon ad but I'm not sure how to incorporate it. Mind if we brainstorm after you read the rough draft?"

What, you really think I'd ask you to write my paper for me? Good sir/ma'am, that is of the greatest insult to someone who loves writing. :P

That stuff was fun in AP Chemistry. We had a more diluted version of it for one of our experiments. The local smart guy in the class decided to smell it and burned the nose hairs right out of his schnoz.

I was the intelligent one who didn't breathe in an extremely hazardous substance, silly. :P

And if I wanted to smell burnt hair, I'd just take my hair out of my ponytail. I hate how my hair smells when I straighten it.

I think the most interesting paper I got to write while in school was a defense of The Lion King against claims that it was nothing but a rip-off of Jungle Emperor Leo. It was fun because I've loved TLK ever since I was a kid, and having been in the fandom for a short time before its inevitable decline into complete obscurity, I have done my fair share of research into anything and everything TLK.

It was only about a page and a half, but it was still a really fun report to write.

well I wouldn't say "nothing but" but it's pretty dang close.
but I'm sure Osamu Tezuka would be fine with it seeing as how he based his entire art style on Donald Duck.

Doctor Seuss could see the future. I thought that was common knowledge. He's widely considered the Nostradamus of his day.

The most interesting thing I've ever actually written was a thinly veiled fanfic under the guise of a story for school.

Note that I said "actually written". I have better ideas than poorly made fanfiction, but that was the only thing I ever wrote! :lol: -dies a little on the inside-

I have a question since most of you are in college.

Do you guys have any websites for finding chapter outlines or study guides for your textbooks? Or do you normally take the hit-and-miss "Google it" approach?

Author:  RandomGeekNamedBrent [ Fri Jan 18, 2013 12:18 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Chat Thread 39: A Heartwarming Children's Movie

I take the "don't do the reading" approach. Hasn't hurt me much yet. nearly every class's lecture is pretty much exactly what the textbook says.

Post subject:  Re: Chat Thread 39: A Heartwarming Children's Movie

I'm taking online classes. There are no lectures. I just want outlines or study guides for a history course, if I can find it.
