And by prison, I mean prison. And by prison, I mean school.
It's the last day of holidays, and I go back to school into Year 10 tomorrow. Really, it IS a prison. You all wear the same clothes, and are locked up to do things you don't want to, and are punished if you try to escape. Everybody is telling me it's a big year, because the School Certificate is done in year 10. Everybody says that I'll have to study 4 hours a night for the big tests, which I don't understand.
The whole point of tests is to see what you have learned over the year. The only reason we should be looking at our textbooks and cramming in information is IF :
1) They've added stuff that isn't in the curriculum into the test.
I Failed An Assignment For Having A Sense Of Humou
Current mood: enraged
My science teacher told us to make up an interview, and ask somebody about acids and bases. I asked Mr. Petrucci. When I showed her my interview, she said that "it isn't science, just crap" and that it should be reported and I will be getting no marks for it. You decide, here is the interview.
William : I'm here with the man who can do it all, and knows it all, John Petrucci.
John : Actually, before we start iw ould prefer it if you adress me as "Mr. Petrucci."
William : Uh, ok, Mr. Petrucci. Where are acids found in everyday life?
Mr. Petrucci : Well, William, acids are found in the food we eat, and the drinks we drink. Oranges and orange juice, for example, contain ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C.
William : Is that all?
Mr. Petrucci : HA! HA! HA! I laugh at your ignorance! Vinegar contains an acid called acetic acid.
William : Aren't acids dangerous, and burn things?
Mr. Petrucci : That's what you think, you meer mortal! Not all acids are highly corrosive and dangerous. Some acids are used in industry and the lab, but others are as weak as you, and are used in everyday life.
William : So, Mr. Petrucci, who discovered acids?
Mr. Petrucci : Well, 10,000 years before the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, I recognised that things like lemons tasted sour. According to legend, Cleopatra dissolved her pearls in wine vinegar and drank the solution that resulted, but it was actually me. I crushed the pearls with my bare hands and drank the solution that resulted.
William : So then, what are bases?
Mr. Petrucci : Bases are the opposite of acids, and they neutralise them. These chemicals, such as magnesium hydroxide are classified as weak alkalis. They taste weak, it would be the same taste if I were to devour you right now. William : What did the french scientist Leblanc contribute to this, and what do you think of him?
Mr. Petrucci : I had to kill him because he stole my notes, because I found out how to make soda ash from common salt, here is my method:
Salt + Sulfuric acid = Sodium Sulfate + hydrochloric acid
Bulldogs Vs. Cowboys. Referee Is A BIGGER MORE EPI
Current mood: PISSED OFF!
Does anybody else seem to see a pattern here? It's semi finals time, and Bulldogs are down, 20-18. They had a chance, only to "loose the ball". On replay, it had been stripped. A 2v1 strip. Should of been our penalty. All game, ALL GAME, referee paul simpkins (See what I did there? I didn't put capitals on his name) had been making horrible calls. You know what the penalty count was in the end? 11 - 4 to the cowboys.
paul simpkins can go shove a cactus up his ass. He can go fuck a porcupine, he can have a buffalo take a diorrhea dump in his ear, he can eat a rotten asshole from a roadkill skunk, he can choke on his own shit.
Well it was a good game up until about the 50th minute. It was 6-8 to the Storm, when they score a try. It's no big deal, they're only 8 points ahead now. The referee makes THE WORST CALL IN THE HISTORY OF RUGBY LEAGUE saying that a Bulldogs player knocked the ball forwards when it clearly went backwards.... This led to the storm scoring another try, then a couple of more, until I threw the remote at the TV and stormed out of the room in rage. They had been offside all game, the least the ref could do was give US a couple of calls. The only thing keeping me calm right now is the classical music I'm listening to. I never thought I would be listening to classical, but I am. It's in the middle of this awesome Piano solo in Beethoven's 'Symphony No.7'. Pretty amazing.
