I'm trying to write my closing statement for that accursed trial, it's not going well. After my fifteen-to-twenty-minute-long statement last time, the teacher's given us a time limit, and I can't decide how many details I can include without going over the limit. ahdn_george_05

Oh, and what's more, I only have an hour to do it. i'm doomed

I have a stupid "career summit" field trip tomorrow. We get to sit for two hours each way on a cramped bus full of people (and you have to sit with your English class, which is full of people I barely know), and then disembark at some college campus, listen to a million lectures, and then, of course, they give us a bingo (to make things so much more "fun!") that we have to fill out by talking to more people about what they're doing, how they like college, etc. I've never understood the point of these things. But of course they can't have the toffees using their own brains to think about anything, let alone such a responsibility as college...

Oh goodness, that sounds rather unpleasant. Hopefully you'll learn something, though, to make it worthwhile? Best of luck all the same. apple01heart

The bloody trial has finally come to an end (thank Krishna ahdn_george_05) and one guy was innocent of all charges, one guy was guilty of all charges, and two guys were guilty of crimes against humanity but innocent o war crimes.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to talk to the librarian because of the stupid scavenger hunt and bingo we had to do. I did go into the library, though, and that was pretty much the only exciting aspect of the whole trip.

Sorry, double posting because I can't really continue this in the hangman thread. 

@50yearslate was slightly confused in another thread

StrawberryFields91 asked

50yearslate declared

Richard that's the line! Funnily enough, I always thought the line was "Joan and Molly sweep the stairs" but apparently it's a lovely Beatley line instead 

  

I always thought so too! How did you find out what the actual line was?

  

I looked up the lyrics.

Edit: But wait, I'm so confused... I'm listening to Frankie right now and the lyrics definitely don't match the ones that Google gave to me... sorry everyone, I may have given you a nonexistent lyric :/

Also beatlebug I finally know where you got your location 😉

  

I googled it as well, and I only saw the incorrect lyric on the default lyrics that pop up. I looked through them, and they also have other mistakes: "let it roll across the bog," "Frankie Crisp, he has no legs," "See the door to the northern bounty feast," Through the walks and through the shade/Through the good one, may he rest awhile," "Hanging chiefs and matching time," "Eyes are shining but a river lies," etc.

YES IT HAS don't judge me please, I didn't hear the song for ages and I didn't really understand the words until I looked it up, I'm sorry

Also for some reason the forum is telling me that Beatlebug mentioned me instead of SF91... very strange...

Shucks, wish you could have talked to one. At least the library was pleasing. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I was with a girl and she asked how old I was. I said 30 (which I am). She said I looked 18. What a compliment! I felt good after that.

Happy Easter, Val!

50yearslate, Beatlebug

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
