When I was in high school I had the most stupid writing assignment I think I ever had in my life! It was for English class.
And what they wanted us to do was to write a paper on what exactly air conditioning is! What is that supposed to mean? Air conditioning is just what it says! It’s cool air that comes through some sort of air vents and cools your home or space you are in! But that’s not what they meant.
They wanted us to find more information on air conditioning and get scientific about it. Why would you even care about the science of air conditioning? This was English class! Not a college where you’re shooting to get a certification to become a heating and air conditioning specialist. Never the less I had to do it. It was required to pass the class. So I had to go to the local library and see if I could find books with more information on air conditioning and its history. I wish we had internet and websites back then. It would have made the task a lot easier! I honestly could not find a book in the world in that library about what exactly air conditioning was! It was the most stupid question on earth! Long story short, I ended up failing the paper and class. I just wrote a paper stating how stupid the whole assignment was. I ended up getting sent to detention for a week as a result. But the rest of the class got a great laugh out of it. For the record, no one passed.
