This is a question School Projects

MostlySunny wibbles, "When I was 11 I got an A for my study of shark nets - mostly because I handed it in cut out in the shape of a shark."

Do people do projects that don't involve google-cut-paste any more? What fine tat have you glued together for teacher?

Black & White
A lot of people in my school year would see how far they could get with their essays and projects, in terms of writing using "non-standard" pens and paper.
The boy who wrote a 4000-word essay on Post-It notes, for example, or the girl who found it amusing to write everything in purple Crayola.

Our teachers, understandably miffed, decreed that "all essays must be on A4 paper, in black and white".

The next essay rolls around and I did as instructed. I bought some black A4 paper, and wrote in Tipp-ex.

Well they didn't say WHICH way round the black and white had to be.

Length? Of the detention? About 35 minutes

This is either bullshit or you went to an odd school
even my shitty comprehensive decreed that all written work must be in blue or black ink on lined A4 paper.

A very odd school
Or, at least, an odd teacher, who failed to instruct us correctly. Literally "in black and white on A4" was the instruction.

This was the polar opposite to another teacher who would give detentions if you did not underline the date, twice, in red; or if you abbreviated the date; or if you didn't use the bottom line of your exercise book.

So you
wrote an entire essay in Tippex?

Either unbelievable bollicks, or spectacular commitment to the cause. Former, anyone?

In fairness...
..you can buy Tipp-Ex pens.

I'm still going to invoke POIDH, though :)

4,000 words
at school?? Seems a little unlikely

Not really
I've had to do the odd few of considerable length and I've only just done my GCSE's.
Still as much as I'd like it to be true it's a nice tale regardless.
