At the top of a page of notes I took on October 27, 2000, in my high school sophomore English class, I decided to draw a terrible (awesome) picture of Rocksteady from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Next to it, I wrote:
“He who fights & runs away lives to fight another day!”
-The Shredder, in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series; also used by Bebop & Rocksteady, a Warthog & a Rhino, respectively… MUTANT Rhino & Warthog, naturally.
When grading my notes later in the semester (yes, our notes were graded), my teacher wrote “? Not relevant” next the drawing. I… have absolutely no explanation for why I drew that. So let’s move on to the quote immediately following my artistic endeavor:
“You all waited too damn long.”
-My teacher, on something
I like how I was too lazy to even attribute the humorous quote to anything specific. Oh, high school.
Apparently, at some point during my freshman year of high school, I felt it necessary to include this drawing in my class notes. The text below reads:
Why all the war? All the kings would gain control of is new armies and people and get more burdens than pleasures. I think probably most of the kings / pharaohs / emperors were bored or something.
On the back side of this page are miscellaneous notes about Egyptian mythology, so this must have been from my world history class.
