A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

« on: May 23, 2013, 01:46:48 PM »

This is our last week of school, and my students are taking their history exams for me this week.  If you have ever wondered what kind of teacher I am, here is a little motivational message that I put at the top of my 11th grade Dual Credit U.S. History exam:

HERE WE ARE.  For an entire year we have blazed a trail through American history, chipping out stone spearpoints with the Indians, planting Spain's flag alongside Columbus, scrambling up Cemetery Ridge with Pickett's division, and storming the beaches at Normandy on D-Day.  You have learned about warriors and poets, Presidents and Kings.  Now, having wandered our way through the inky dark caverns of antiquity, at long last light looms ahead.  A single, narrow bridge, three half days long, stands between you and summer.  But on that bridge lurks a monster of flame and despair, an examination of agony, wielding a whip of red ink, and defiantly shouting "You shall not pass!!!"   ARE YOU READY TO PROVE HIM WRONG??? Cast the Balrog of Ignorance into the pit of historical knowledge, and fight your way to summer!!  FREEEEEEEDOOOOOMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Carpe diem!" - Seize the day!  "Carpe per diem!" - Seize the daily living allowance! "Carpe carp!" - Seize the fish!
"Carpe Ngo Diem!" - Seize the South Vietnamese Dictator!

I dont' know if I've posted this before or just thought it, but I would have loved to have had a teacher like you in school.


This is my awesome signature.  Jealous?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
