I've got a paper due that I haven't even started yet, simply because I don't even know what to write it on. It's tricky, because I need to find some balance between "relevant," and "over-done like the dickens." Basically, I can't write a paper on picking my own nose, and at the same time I can't write it on something big and overblown, like abortion.

Help, please?

"The Attempted Translation of Victorian Virtues into 21st Century Culture"

That title alone will get you a C, guranteed! Very Happy

Guarantee null and void within the Earth's biosphere.

MMORPG's and their impact to gamer's life and its possible implications. You could have this whole argument about real world and game world.

wait... what's this paper about?

you could always write a strait-faced investigation of the normal person + anonymity + audience = fucktard theory.

The use of language in politics. Simple repetition of language concepts and drilled association. If I repeat that I'm "The Heartland Candidate" and call my opponent "Both-Ways-Bob" over and over again, I'm using carefully planned transmission techniques to saturate a common idea in the minds of my constituents. As a plus, it references the 'talking point' phenom. Oohfascinating!

I wrote my psych final on this. Used the following site as a source once I ran it by the professor:

Hell if I know, but I like your sig.


I was wondering if you'd ever comment on that. Wink I was planning on changing my signature on a weekly basis to mock various people's signatures, but then I got a life.

Yea, people who have their sigs and avatars for the sole purpose of mocking other people. WHAT A BUNCH OF LOSERS! HAHAHAH!
