|| In OAC English, we had to take a fairy tale
and re-write it in the style of an author of our choice. I wrote it
with my friend Shaughnessy. We originally wanted to do Dr. Seuss, but
were beaten to it (I think it turned out to be a good thing, though;
their's was great), so we decided upon Edgar Allen Poe (he wrote 'The
Raven' ("Quoth the raven, 'nevermore, nevermore,'" etc)).
|| Grade 12 Physics ISP. I worked on this so hard
that I gave myself my first headache. It was fun, though. It was also
quite hard, and I wasn't able to figure everything out. You'll notice
that there's absolutely no derivation of the last equation, E=mc^2, as I didn't have time
to figure it out (I wasn't just copying derivations... I was trying to
derive them myself while using research material for hints). I think
there are even some errors
in here, so don't run off and write a Relativity report based on just
this... Please excuse the
formatting errors, as I used MSWord 2000 to convert .doc to .htm.
|| My OAC Physics Independent Study
Project. It was
very hard to find good information for this project, since it's still an
experimental area. Again, formatting errors are to be blamed on MSWord 2000 :
||In Grade 12 English class, we had to come up
with a story full of redundancies that also had a moral to the story.
We needed 20 redundancies, but I went all out and put in 38 (including some joke ones, pretending that calling the model of car I drove a "peice of junk" was redundant). About the
'moral' to my story, Mrs. Gibson wrote on my paper, "That is, without a
doubt, one of the best/worst puns." (I didn't think just any old moral like "look both ways before crossing the street" was fun, so I came up with something a bit more complicated...)
Dick Is So Big That...
|| Hilarious Big Dick Jokes compiled by my
first-year of university roommate Jason, myself, and the occasional
floor-mate (in particular, Blake, Colin, and Maher). We got the idea
for this after hearing '101 Big Dick Jokes,' a recording of Drew Carey
reading the Big Dick Jokes chapter of his book.
|| In Grade 11 English, we had to write a story
about a primitive society's first time experiencing an eclipse.
|A page mostly written in 2000 explaining what atheism
is and that tries to dispell some of the common misconceptions about
it. I used to feel weird about having this page on my site and even removed it for about a year, but after hearing that some friends of mine have found it useful for explaining their atheism to people, family even, I think I really should leave it up.
|| Also in Gr. 11, we had to write a running
metaphor. It's when you compare something to something else, but
without using the words 'like' or 'as,' you actually say that it IS
what you are comparing it to. The teacher seemed to like it: she read
several of them to the class, and read mine first. My first sentence
breaks the rules of metaphor with the word 'similar,' but the rest is
alright. I thought this up on the drive to go play a hockey game.
