My gosh everybody on top is getting down voted. Regardless of what they say OP, that is an exceedingly stupid thing to get in trouble for. It is a paper airplane. People are getting way to sensitive. I understand that 9/11 affected thousands and thousands of people, but it is a freaking paper airplane.
If OP is at school, chances are they're too young to have even been alive when it happened. We don't make such a big deal over the anniversary of wars ending or starting, saying "you can't play games like Cod!", so why OP should be punished for making planes is ridiculous. The only event that everyone goes crazy about happened 14 years ago, whereas several years later there was an event in London which doesn't get half as much media coverage nor do people go on about like it's the second coming of Christ.
#60 I don't think nearly as many people died in the London event. Also, it's probably much more memorialized in England. And then, it wasn't the first major attack from a foreign entity that England experienced. England has a long history of terrorism and attacks from foreign nations. America doesn't, so the attack on 9/11 was that much more shocking.
#107. This really bugs me (especially since having spoken in the comments with you before, so I know you should know better :p) but the country is the UK, not England. England may have the highest population, but it is only 1/4 of our country. But yes, 7/7 is memorialised over here. Although we actually get slightly wider news coverage for 9/11 for some reason. But yeah, we get a lot. Especially since we are basically the country that invented terrorism when it comes to Ireland. In fact, there was a terrorist attack just the other day that is receiving minimal coverage here.
Dd/mm/yy is the logical order. Days are the shortest measurement of time (of the three), then month, then year is the longest. Logical. And either England or UK is acceptable when talking about the London bombings as they were in England. If they'd been in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland that would be different.
These attacks were as memorable and shocking to my generation as the last terrorist attack from another country on American soil, which was Pearl Harbor, was to my grand parent's generation. Other countries probably mourn their dead from major tragedies in their own way. But you shouldn't be punished do forgetting if you're too young to remember the event.
YDI for making paper airplanes in school in the first place... FYL for having god awful timing
what the hell is wrong with you that is a American tragedy we need to make that a national holiday so we never forget!!!
we ant supposed to forget, but how quickly we do! we are at this very moment importing isis into or country. do people really believe that isis hasn't already infiltrated the refugees. they are also coming in from our porous border. they say don't forget, then set us up for demolition
Tell them it was a coincidence. If there just, they'll understand. It could be the reportee was personally affected by 9/111. That or someone was just being mean.
I know everyone says never forget, which is true because we shouldn't but I'm also not going to blame you and say YDI. It's incredibly easy to forget what day it is, whether we are talking the day of the week or month, I'm assuming you wouldn't have done that if you had remembered what day it was. I am surprised they didn't say anything on your morning announcements and that you didn't see anything on social media, but I'm not going to say YDI just because you forgot what day of the month it was, that wouldn't be fair because that happens to everyone. You could've thought it was the 10th and that the 11th was tomorrow for all I know, it's not hard to mix up what the date is
Well, he is in school, a place to study. I wish I had a free period when I was in school, I might have done my home work instead of going home after work and going to bed and failing so many classes. that free period is a perfect time to get help on anything you need help with, or just get caught up on your work. Not to be a distraction to other students that may need the help. If you have nothing else to do, offer to help someone else that is struggling instead of being a distraction.
Yeah no, a free period is a free period to do what you want, if you failed classes because you didn't study or do homework in that period, you deserved your failures. You still have any and all freetime outside of school and work to do it. You can argue that you get home to late, but then I'm gonna respond with saying "if you aren't willing to miss sleep for a better grade, then you don't truly want the better grade" I just finished grade 12 with a 75 average (which contrasted my previous years 59 average greatly) This wasnt because i worked during my 3 free periods (i managed to only have 2 classes in my last semester) this was because i did my work when i had free time, and i had loads more free time at home than i did on a free period
