Our system had a specific pull down menu for all the US states(can't remember if DC was in there too).

I remember a CS post where someone had a DC ID, and the cashier refused it and insisted it was fake because "Nobody lives in DC". I think they called the cops on the customer, but it may have been a security guard.

Ten extra points if this was someone high up in government circles. (More than 600,000 "nobodies" live in DC.)
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

1.  Something that will do all my homework for me...

Please list this as a single unit for me. E.g. "Homework completing machine." Also, if you can't give me a list of 1-100, please don't bother. This is for a school project. I don't have time to deal with people who can't be bothered to put in the effort. /end sarcasm. Wow, the mind boggles. That would actually be an interesting conversation (even if I knew it was for someone's school project) but the fact that they can't even be bothered to do the work of looking through the comments and creating a list? I can totally see needing some help in brainstorming - 100 is a lot. But expecting people to do 99.9% of the assignment? Yuck.

Paris, ON, Canada, too.

Rats, beat me to it.

Just a note, Ontario also has:

Dublin
London
Brussels
Washington
and ... Moscow

We even had a Berlin, then WWI came along and it got renamed to Kitchener.

I left that one out, as it doesn't fit the list. All the others are also national capitals of other countries.

Gotcha - didn't clue into the capitols thing.  I was just thinking names of famous other than Ontario destinations.

Re: the homework kid

It's against the rules of that message board to help people with their homework.  If the kid had read the rules and not mentioned homework, he probably would've gotten some interesting answers -- just not 100 at a time. 
It takes two people to play tug of war. If you don't want to play, don't pick up the rope.

Maybe he saw this as delegating rather than laziness.
