In sixth grade, we were given a homework assignment:
Create equations equal to every number from 1 to 50 using nothing but 4.
1 = 4/4
2 = 4/(4 plus 4)
3 = (4 plus 4 plus 4)/4
Not that bad, until you get to some of the weird ones, like 37. It took me about 28 hours to get all but seven of them, and then my family worked on it for another five or six hours. We still didn't get all of them.
Turns out nobody did. The teacher didn't even check the homework before assigning it. Since it was virtually impossible, she determined that it would be unfair to grade it. For those of us who actually tried, good job! For me, who got all but two... well, also good job. What do you want, extra credit or something?
I stopped doing homework for about four years.
Hope that bitch is dead.
