    when you write an entire essay with no definable paragraphs, thats too much..

    I would say no more than 6 lines Arial 12.

    if it is all to do with the same point/issue, then the paragraph can be as long as is necessary. you will be able to find where there are breaks, where you divert course a little. but if not, then 1 big-ass paragraph is the way forward

    The size of a paragraph depends on the subject matter, as mentioned by VT; issues of typeface, point size, aesthetics are all irrelevant.

    A paragraph can be as long as you want, however the point of a paragraph is to separate the subjects and what your saying in your essay. You dont only write about one thing, therefore a paragraph shouldnt be that long theoretically

    I'd say 3/4 of a page written is too long. for a paragraph.

    people that go out and kill others after seeing it on a video game, have to have a serious mental pre-disposition... and maybe mention the Hitman series, or manhunt..
