You go to school for fucking 6 1/2 hours, constantly taking it up the ass (figuratively) from dickhead students and fucktard teachers. Then you go home, which SHOULD be time that doesn't involve learning shit you don't care about. But no, these cunt-ass teachers will not accept only 6 1/2 hours of torturing you. They crave more. So they unload a huge amount of this ass discharge they call homework on you. It can range from a simple math worksheet with joke you must fill in when you're done (no biggie) to a fucking ton of work containing bookwork, projects, unfinished classwork, studying for a test you know you're going to fail either way, and book reports on a book you didn't care to read. And these teachers are clever too. If you spent fucking hours on this shit and ended up going to sleep at 4 in the motherfucking morning, these assrammers won't even check the damn homework the next day. Oh, but if you forgot to note down the homework, did the wrong page, or just didn't give two shits about it and didn't do it, the assholes will ask you turn it in. All in all, school sucks, classwork sucks, teachers suck, students suck, and homework is the fucking scum of the earth.
I'm supposed to be doing my homework right now, which is a research paper on a book I didn't have the time to read (assigned by old bitch Goodman) and to study for a math test I'm probably going to bomb anyway (given by fat slut Preston). Except I don't give two shits about it, so I'm writing a definition for Urban Dictionary. What? You think I should be doing my homework instead of writing this wordy definition that probably no one will read? Well fuck you then, you can kiss my ass.

1.) Literally, work that is done at home. Usually applies to schoolwork. Homework is unnecessary as it is given to students who have already spent the majority of the day at school.

2.) Something that gets crueler with every grade. While the first graders chug away on their addition worksheets, they are blissfully unaware that they will soon enough be doing laborous tasks such as AP World History homework, Geometry 2 homework, English Honors homework, and even Gym homework on a nightly basis.

3.) Assignments that are wickedly easy to procrastinate on whenever there is a preferable activity at hand, such as YouTube, Xbox, or being impaled by a molten iron spike.

4.) What you are probably supposed to be doing at this very moment, seeing as you looked up "homework" on urbandictionary. I would go so far as to say you have a very LARGE amount of it.
Whoever invented homework did NOT go to heaven.

Something that does not benefit either party involved, teacher or student; extra work that should be done in class but isn't for some stupid reason.

The teacher is just making more work for you and for himself/herself.

Why???
We may never know.
I would rather stay in school for 9 hours instead of 7, provided we don't have homework.

Among things I'd rather do:

Poop
Slap someone
Break a window
Fart
Blow my nose
Work in a coal mine (not really)
Sleep
Defacate on the homework
Wipe myself with the homework
Hit someone over the head with a frying pan
Try on all of the clothes in my closet
Go outside
Stay inside
Not fart
Shoot a BB gun
Play "Ding-Dong-Ditch"
Throw myself into a huge room full of packing peanuts
Parasail
Jump out of an airplane (Not happening!)
Belch
Play Videogames
Play online games
Play hopscotch
Play with myself (not what you're thinking, although...)
Drive a Lamborghini Murcielago
Drive a crappy-ass car
Drive a not-so-crappy-ass-but-still-somewhat-crappy-ass car
Crash a not-so-crappy-ass-but-still-somewhat-crappy-ass car
Eat Glass
Climb a tree
Fall from the tree
Try again and subsequently fail
Try many more times until I have not the stregnth nor the willpower to try again

And Much, Much More...

And since I have decided that I'm not going to do my homework, I can gurantee that I'll do at least 5 of these things tonight!!! ;)

A simple & effective torture device used by teachers & the administration to whip students into submission. Even after 7 hours at school slaving away in classes, memorizing information that will either be forgotten or absolutly no use in future life, this is handed out, making the impressionable young minds of the worlds' youth into conformed, robotic machines. Most teachers, adults, & government officals would have you believe that it is all nessesary for character-building and intelegence, but it is actually a cruel and unusual punishment.
"Psst, Anthony... Do you have any idea what Mr. Phillips was blabbering on about in math yesterday?... I think we needed it for the homework."
"Erm... no?"
"Dangit."
"You think? I'm gonna have to get Noah to explain it to me at lunch... about 10 minutes before class."
"You think this will be of any use to us in our future lives."

The shit you must do every school night, after already putting in 6 in a half hours of hard labour for some shit school. It is considered a punishment from teachers. It can range from a couple science questions to finishing a project, a book report, and 6 pages of math. Sometimes, people get so stressed out about homework that they develop social and mental problems, or, are afraid to go to school the next day. Too much homework can lead to incomplete, or meteocre assignments. Also, many people may stay up to as much as five in the morning getting their homework done. This is only in extreme cases, though. I myself get homework, and I absolutely hate it, but fortunately I don't get too much.

But of course, if you don't finish your homework, for whatever reason, you get screamed at, punished, and completely and utterly humiliated in front of your classmates.

After school is supposed to be the time where you can actually have some free time, and do things such as play video games, hang out with your friends, watch television, etc. But that isn't really possible these days, the amount of homework given to students has increased dramatically over the years.

I say: no homework.
Math teacher: Johnny, did you finish the 32 pages of math I assigned to the class yesterday? It was homework, and it's due today.

Johnny: No, I couldn't because-

Math teacher: SHUT UP, YOU FUCKING IDIOT. I'M SICK OF YOU AND YOUR SHIT EXCUSES. YOU WILL STAY IN EVERY RECESS UNTIL YOU HAVE THAT PAPER DONE, FUCKING FOOL. THAT'S 6 DETENTIONS MISTER.
