The truth about homework

Lately, I've learned a lesson that I wish someone would have told me about years ago. Homework is a genuinely bad thing. Being responsible actually makes your life HARDER! I am prepared to back this claim with evidence.

Ahem.

Case #1: I recently took a stats test. As my first test had not exactly been a "home run," I stepped up the studying, and spent a lot of quality time with my notebook and calculator. And the result? I DID WORSE! My score dropped!

Case #2: In an attempt to illustrate the positive effect reaching goals can have on a person, my professor recently assigned my class to set a goal, and report back on our findings. (I know. Weird assignment.) My goal: join the ward's soccer team. So I did. And what happened? I blew out my knee. (What does ACL stand for anyway?)

In conclusion, I would just like to post this general warning. Despite what you might have heard about homework, it is really something to be avoided whenever possible. Trust me. Your grades and your health are hanging in the balance. I trust you will make the right decision.

"Anterior Crucial Ligament." Or "A Crappy Ligament." One of the two.

Thanks for setting everyone straight. For a long time, I thought Bryant and I were the only advocates against homework. Nice to have you aboard.

I meant to say "WHAT IS the Anterior Cruciate Ligament." That's be -$400, Alex.

That ligament is crappy. What's wrong with that thing? It's always breaking. I think they need to do a recall.

And I think they need to do a recall of Statistics, too.

There are some illustrations of the ACL from different angles in this article.

One of the reason I gave up on school. Couldn't handle doing the homework, especially the papers. I have no idea how you did it.
