Writing a 5 page paper?

My paper has to be “no less than five (5) pages.”

I know this sounds like common sense, but does this mean it has to fill at least five complete pages?

Or can it be four pages with half or more than half of the fifth page filled?

(For the first time, I’m running out of things to write before meeting the minimum number of pages, and that’s why this simple situation is an issue now.)

Unfortunately, I would have to say that it means five full pages. I’m sure if it’s a line or two short, your teacher isn’t going to get worried, but I suspect four and a half pages won’t cut it.

Rev. Jim Jones’ People’s Temple which moved to Guyana in the 70s and in which cult, the adult members drank cyanide-laced Kool-Aid type drink and fed the same to children and babies. People fleeing the ghastly insanity were murdered with hunting rifles by Jones’ snipers. Jones himself presided over the grisliness (including the murder of CA Congressman Leo Ryan and other visitors on an airstrip) before he blew his own brains out. Then the wannabe-preacher, Charles Willis Manson, needs little other introduction than his name. And the substantially less grisly, but still totally nuts, whacko CA cult that was all bothered by the comet Hale-Bopp. So the lesson is that guns, cyanide, LSD, California, knives and charismatic control-freak paranoid leaders aren’t a good mix, unless you are a suicidal sheep. Bahhh!
