A New Breed of Smartass

A new breed of smartass
- English 3 AP classmate


Boredom, talent, and "a new breed of smartass" come together to create a useless presentation on the Iceberg Analogy. My English teacher keeps using it, so I finally snapped, went totally mad, and made a presentation about it. It's not perfect -- nothing created at 1:30 AM while suffering from lack of sleep ever is -- but there is a slim chance of extra credit.

Yay for useless presentations.

Lookey, using the <PRE> tag, I can display preformatted texts, notably e.e.cummings poetry. That should be a big help to my friend the alpha noodle over at Carpe Verbum, who's trying to display homage to edward.

Preformatted text is ours!

Watch that wall, John

Watch that wall, John. Someone put a building there while you weren't looking.
- Construction Worker at Santa Fe High School

I overheard this great quote on my way to the library, passing by the large renovation project that is turning the old library into the new administration building. John was smoothing some concrete with a board on a very long pole.
