    Did it work? When I wrote essays, death & illness were #2 on the list of overdone topics to avoid, right after sports.

    However, if it is well written and thought provoking they may just judge by those criteria rather than topic.

    Why is this thread still alive?!

    As I said, I already submitted it. it's pointless to discuss now.

    Because some people don't read every post in a thread.

    so, the illuminati destroyed my clutch master cylinder friday as part of their master plan to keep me from getting a blowjob from a cute girl. I was thinking about cutting their brake lines, quid pro quo.

    I've also diagnosed myself with bronchitis, "coincidences" keep piling up.
