When I was younger, I was secretly fascinated by cars. Now it's just less of a secret. Nobody ever told me anything about them, there was no need to. I somehow managed to "work out" how they worked all by myself when I was about 5. I was convinced that when you put fuel in, it ran round an...
I read Jurassic Park again yesterday, found it at the bottom of my bed and thought I'd give it another go. Thing is, it made me wonder something that I'm sure must have a really obvious answer but I can't work it out. There is a lot of guesswork in the book, about the intelligence and things. I just...
I read this on holiday a few years ago and I just heard that it may be being made into a film. I say may because I can't always trust this source. I was just wondering if anybody else had read it. It was dubbed "The Da Vinci Code for people with brains" but, other than the fact that they w...
I've played this on/off for years now, just really got back into it. I love the amount of cultural references, the same reason I love xkcd so much really. I go under Boom_Shine mainly. I seem to have too much meat to know what to do with lately though so I'm going to do a HC run next.
If t becomes ok to sit out of PE just because you're not fit or co-ordinated, why not maths or english or any other academic subject you're crap at? I really wasn't suggesting that people should be able to sit out of PE, I just think it could be approached in different ways. I don't think forcing p...
I agree about the team sports thing. It wasn't until our last two year that they gave us the option of aerobics, or other non team activities. I know they all say that PE encourages team work, but it really doesn't. Kids who can do it, don't need encouragement, kids who can't don't get it. Also: PE ...

I think I enjoy certain Pokémon games the most but not as a series as I didn't really like anything past 2nd gen. There is no need for that many Pokémon, so for a series, I vote Zelda.
I just finished reading The Time Traveller's Wife again. I recommend it if you want something light, but not airport material. It's deep in parts and combines some complicated issues with a quite beautiful love story.

I did SAMA Karate for six years, did some teaching for the last two. Unfortunately, school came first and I dropped it for a while and never really went back. I miss it occasionally, mostly the fights, but I never managed to progress past 1st kyu. I stayed on that for 2 years, so I don't think going...
Fun or traumatic? I was discussing this with my family over dinner, I'm not sure how it came up. My mum and stepdad both happened to be rather popular, sporty types at school so they obviously didn't understand what I was getting at. If I remember rightly, my mum actually said something along the l...

I was going to try not to lower the tone, but I don't think that can be avoided. All I can say is once my friend rang me to tell me she had just sent a text to her boyfriend and forgotten to change a word. Kick > Lick.

I decided against a creative username because they never turn out right for me. So yes, my name is Leah. I'm 16, soon to be 17, from Portsmouth, South England. Been a fan of xkcd for quite a while now, decided this might be a good time to join. Currently at college, starting second year in September...
