    Well, I need to do a research paper on anything I want but I can't think of anything. I tryed doing on the M4 and the AK-47 but I got only a page's worth of info then came the gun fancy words that I know me and my teacher won't understand. The research has to be at least 2 pages long to get a passing grade and I need like 4 pages if I want an A. I just want 3 so I need a topic that has a lot of understandable info.

    Before you flame. I am not asking you to do it for me, I just need a topic. Also, I know some one's gonna say "it's anything you want, just get something you like" I'm a teen, I don't know what I want. please and thank you

    -L7-

    P.S: The paper's due tomorrow (I know, sux) so I need some post today. I can stay up all night to do this if I need to so come on, please.

    Do a project on porn over the years. And the Male watching domination and the female "staring" domination.


    Doing it on porn you could easily get a 10 page paper with in hours.


    If I was asked to do a research project on whatever that is what I would do it on.

    Well, it's a school so it has to be appropriate. I wish I can do it on porn, then I'll have an excuse for my mom "I was just doing research".

    I once had to do a research paper on copyright laws because I got caught selling "backup" cds... you should write your paper on the DMCA and how's it's a bunch of bull shit, that's pretty much what I did, got me an "A" and out of detention! [​IMG]

    How many pages did you end up doing? What do you mean, do I write about how the DMCA is bad or something?

    You could argue for or against why Barack Obama will be a good president. Or any of the wars or philosophies/ethics/etc

    My paper wound up being 2 pages, but I could have done more, plus that was like 6 years ago so the laws have gotten more strict since then so it should be easy to flesh out. I just looked up the restrictions on digital media, like how it's illegal to let your friend borrow a video game, or give it to them. If you no longer want a game legally you have to destroy the disc/cartridge!

    I could easily do a 4 page piracy research paper. And even more on an essay.

    You need sources, which requires research. Remember to cite as you write.

    Argue why Barrack Obama will be the coolest shit since sliced bread. [​IMG]
    Go barrack!

    How about vampires... how crap like twilight is corrupting the minds of youth and making them freaky emo goths.
    Or video games... do three pages on Captain Falcon! ChucK Norris would be fun too.

    maybe you should recerch how to spell research first XP

    hmm some topics id prolly do are like current issues, like the war in iraq, the economy
    or maybe like controversial issues like abortion, and gun rights (that way, you can present both sides of the argument to write more)
