Sometime ago, I read pages one and two of the biggest of Jostein Gaarder (sp?) books. I had a phylosophy work to do on the whole book.
I started with something like:
"The book is profound and the story is touching. However, its torn in many fragments. Two of those are on the very start of the book, and get dissecated all along it..." and bla bla bla

Summarizing, I did a huge essay on two pages and two sentences picked from that, dissecated them and got a ten out of ten!

Thats dinamic reading part one.

wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

Decide on a song for Leo here, who's dying to turn 17

How do you feel about the Beatles's "Birthday"? No matter how much he begs, I'm *not* doing the Marilyn Monroe birthday song.

Bullshitting 101: Use big words.

As you can see in hitman's example,

Quote:
I started with something like:
"The book is profound and the story is touching. However, its torn in many fragments. Two of those are on the very start of the book, and get dissecated all along it..."
He doesn't say anything, really, but he uses big words--"profound", "fragments", "dissecated".

Bullshitting 102: Treat everything abstractly, even if it's not. Teachers *love* that.
