That's probably where Bronson learned it. He served in WW2 as a tail gunner, and flew 21 combat missions

I have to do a report in English about how heroin is a destructive and addictive drug and how it effects our society.

Is heroin even a common addiction nowadays?

My school taught about the holocaust about one quarter of every school year in english, like the english teachers all felt a duty to teach history, one year we didnt even read a book about the holocaust (i could understand when we read, for example, NIGHT, but not when we just watched documentaries and didnt even write reports. And in health class they had us watch bowling for columbine, were supposed to learn about nutrition, exercise, condoms, etc, not friggin propaganda films.

They haven't shown us any propoganda like that, nor have we dedicated a quarter of a year to the Holocaust. My English teacher is, however, obsessed with Shakespeare and poetry

The thing is each year they taught holocaust, then only junior year of history did, so it made no sense, english is not for history lessons unless its relevant to the book being read, and even then just enough for a quick background, I dont need a full quarter on concentration camps.

I got to say the 2 worst books I read were:

There Eyes Were Watching God: Horribly written the style was impossible to follow.

1984: Yep, the old classic everybody claims to love.....with a main character I could care less about and a backstory way too implausible.....at least equillibrium was cool.
