in reply to So it's homework - so what?

This sort of question has a brilliant response here (www.tuxedo.org/~esr).

It's lengthy, but I believe that it does a great job explaining our feelings on the matter.

P.S. I didn't write it, so use your upvotes/downvotes on the other responses!

      Perhaps I should admit that I always like to answer those homework questions, and I think you folks should do it too, because it's a dog-eat-dog world, and if these folks want you to assist them in sabotaging their educations so that they are less able to compete with you after they graduate, you should let them do it.

marioroy At a large firm, had to awaken a security guy a few times so that nobody would catch him sleeping.
marioroy On a large dairy farm, almost went off the road with a 10 wheeler from exhaustion. On the farm, almost went off the silo with a big tractor. At the Fransiscan monastery, almost slipped off the dome while painting it.
[marioroy]: In Saudi Arabia caught fire but didn't burn. I think angels exist.
Lady_Aleena clean up after dinner finally.
[Discipulus]: uch! so we are twice lucky to have MCE..;=)
[marioroy]: Working a midnight graveyard shift, on the way home ran out of gas. just 2 minutes later somebody stops with a small tank of gas. It's wierd. There's always someone nearby for some reason.
[Lady_Aleena]: I was the one who stop[ed in the middle of a cold night to pick up a small family walking to a gas station. I got a few gallons of free gas for the round trip, and the grandmother said she'd pray for me.
[marioroy]: Folks do not know it, but MCE was ridiculously difficult. At Niagra Falls, heard a voice on enabling Grace while in the mist boat. That 10x performance is possible.
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Angels on earth are real people. That's awesome.
