So What Do I Want To Write About?

Wed Jun 29, 2005 1:54 am

For my obnoxious Freshman composition class (which I have been putting off for so many years) I need to write a cause and effect paper. I get to pick the topic so I was looking for suggestions.

I need to be able to find at least 3 resources, and I should be able to git R done in 3-5 pages.. Any suggestions?

Cause: Richard Nixon pulling the US Dollar off a gold-backed standard.

Effects: exponentially rising inflation and all the problems that go with it.
And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Got anything slightly aviation related? No reason to punish myself wading through piles of data for that... and it might be hard to only get 3-5 pages out of that.

Consulting LHMark for insult material now? And you had so much potential too.  Sad

Do something so technical that it will sound like you know exactly what your talking about. I've done a whole bunch of essays on the "Aerodynamics of the horizontal stabilizer" and such... A+ !

I'm sure there are loads of aviation related cause and effect things you could write about.

How about...

Cause: Failure of a 19 cent light bulb.
Effect: The downing of Eastern 401.

Absolutely. I'll square you away then if you are in town LHMark can square you away in other ways.

How about...

Cause: Airlines becoming more cost conscious
Effects: Manufacturers using more and more composites in their aircraft
Not drinking, also isn't a solution!

Cause: I don't like writing term papers.
Effect: I write a term paper about writing term papers.
Desired Effect: Professor now understands why term papers may not be the most productive assignments to give students.  Wink
Up, up and away!
