i used this quote in my english class and i stumped the teacher
i said this to my science teacher and he was confused as fuck
I always showed up to 7th period at least ten minutes after the class began. One day my teacher asked me why I was always so late.
“Probably because I don’t wear a watch,” I answered.
“Why don’t you wear a watch?” he asked.
I dropped my books and made a Black Power fist and shouted, “BECAUSE I REFUSE TO BE A SLAVE TO THE SHACKLES OF TIME!”
That afternoon was the best day of detention I ever served.

The Most Famous Mummies in the World
One of the most important archaeological finds, and certainly one of the greatest mysteries of the 20th century, are the hundreds of well-preserved mummies that have been found buried in the sands of the Tarim Basin in the far western Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of China.
According to scientists, these mummies, three in particular, are among the most important human remains ever found: the much-celebrated Yingpan Man with his gold-foil and white mask and beautiful robes; an infant wrapped in a woolen blanket, wearing a blue and red bonnet of lightly felted wool; and the spectacular woman known as the “Beauty of Xiaohe,” a 3,800 year old mummy whose beauty is startling and is considered to be one of the most well-preserved, exquisite mummies ever discovered.
The reason these mummies are so historically important, and have created such a controversy, is their high degree of preservation which has allowed scientists to see far more detail than would normally be expected in a burial site. These mummies are not Asian-looking, but rather light skinned, round-eyed, with long noses, red or blond haired men, women and children.
