Seriously, How Hard Is It?!

Apparently, school students these days don't actually do homework; instead, they get on Yahoo Answers and expect other people to do it for them. This other example is even worse.

The Gettysburg Address takes about a minute to read. The language used is a bit old-fashioned, but not that difficult to fathom. Even if you don't know what "fourscore and seven" years is, you can figure it at least means, "back in 1776" from context, and do the math from the date of 1863.

Honestly, if Mark and I ever have children, I'm of a mind to forbid them from using the Internet for homework until they graduate from high school.

hell I had to memorize that thing and say it for a grade!

I had to memorize the "Romeo, Romeo" passage from Romeo and Juliet. I'd rather have memorized the Gettysburg Address. (g)
