Thats the simplest of the college cookbook. You could have done ramen in the coffee pot, hotdogs with a stripped lamp wire, etc.

And your point?

Yes, it was simple. But it fell within the context of the assignment.

Was it expository? Yes. Did it give information? Yes. Did I explain how to do something? Yes. Were there multiple steps? They way I did it, yes. Was the audience interested, did I get a good grade and was it fun? Yes, yes, and yes. All that interpreted into assignment completed, A+ grade recieved, and fun had by all...

Remember, sometimes the best (read enjoyable and interesting) assignments are those that aren't so deeply thought out and are made purely for enjoyment of the masses - not the one or two "intellectuals" in the class. If I can share ANYTHING with college students these days, it's that the "game" of college has specific rules - and they don't all include mind boggling equations and deep philosophy. The rules are to get you further prepared for LIFE outside of schooling - not just your job. Have fun, because these are the best 4 - 8 years of your life!

Also, remember that this was back in the 80's so it wasn't so well known back then - at least not on my campus!
