Re: Head Hair

I did that yesterday, and that's what I'm going to propose to the director. But thanks for the suggestion, it's nice knowing it's not just me and some biased friends who think a bun could work. We perform in shakos anyway, which hide all of the hair. He says it looks unprofessional when we're warmin...

Re: Head Hair

hello thread, I've been lurking, may I have advice? The marching band director says that this year we must have naturally colored hair. Ignoring how my colored tips were acceptable for the past two years, and how he told me this with no advance warning yesterday(he said it was in the handbook. I jus...

Re: [SAFESPACE] LGBTIQQ Thread - Queer Support!

A (male, straight) friend once argued to me that bisexuality was a myth because people only did it for the attention. My reply was something along the lines of: 1. I don't get attention, what do you mean? 2. Gender seems irrelevant a lot of the time, in fantasies 3. It doesn't mean I can't have a pr...

Re: Scienece Fair Project Help

I don't know where you should look, but as to whether it's a good idea, it depends what you want to do with it and how you frame it. In my experience, you get external awards by showing how something is useful/cool and awards from the science fair coordinators (at my regional fair, they have over a ...

Re: Science teachers

Imagine teaching highschool chemistry: The electrons are bound to the nucleus cus they're negatively charged and the protons in the nucleus are positively charged, so there's an attractive force towards the center and tadaa, orbital motion. Why doesn't the nucleus explode if the protons repel each ...

Re: Picking A Screenname

A friend of mine used some random character generator to create a screenname. I have come to memorize the specific characters, because I don't alias people... I usually find something vaguely descriptive or obscure and build from there. (A tetracontakaidigon is a 42-sided polygon, and I chose this n...

Re: "Chess Photo" Discussion

The video's fine with me, I think it's cool.

I am going on *another* school trip to Six Flags (with orchestra) tomorrow. I am bringing a chessboard this time with one of the joke problems. I'll post pictures this weekend...

Re: ITT:We discuss Duct Tape

I made a dress out of duct tape in eighth grade! (I think there was a thread about it) I also have a bag made of duct tape which I use when I need a purse for things. And a strap for my Frets on Fire keyboard. And some gauntlets. And I started to make an aluminum-foil-and-duct-tape Faraday case for ...

Re: Class rank?

I'm a sophomore now, freshman year I was 3rd. There are somewhere around 900 students in my class? (The school has 3400 for all four grades.) At my high school, they weight honors classes by multiplying the percentage by nine and dividing by eight, and AP/beyond classes by multiplying by ten and div...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

When there are posts between your clicking the "reply" button before writing something and "submit" button to post it, the forum warns you. Which I referred to as a ninja warning; it avoids others answering questions before you do and making you look silly, ninja-like in their st...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

I prefer to remain enigmati...
