Is it common to actually plan what you are going to do with your time? I'm in college, and I just kind of do what's necessary when it has to be done (as in I don't make a schedule for homework). Generally it works out pretty well, and I end up with 9-6 hours of sleep a night (13 on weekends). Social...
I was hoping someone could suggest a good basic book on proof writing (or at least that includes it). I'm starting abstract algebra next semester, and I haven't done any proof based classes before, so I'd like to get a feel for it before I start the class.
Who knows? I wouldn't be that surprised if there was a valve employee who frequented xkcd, it's their kind of place. Does anyone here ever do the double medic infinite uber thing? There were some people on my server doing it yesterday, and it was pretty funny, no one knew what to do. It took a few r...

For me lying and joking are sort of one concept in my mind. It's just the way my friends and I interact, because we all know when what is said is a lie. It seems odd that there is this very general term for everything that is not necessarily true, which has a large negative stigma attached to it. Th...
I love how Streetlight Manifesto keep popping up every other page. They deserve every single mention. This is one of my favourites (impossible to pick just one). The lyrics, music, video, I love it all. I know, it's great. Most people I meet haven't heard of them, I'm glad to see there is a pretty ...
I was thinking about something that would a huge amount of fun to try: Get at least 5 huntsman snipers, all with microphones on a team. They could all travel in a pack and send volleys of arrows at specific targets. If they communicated well it might actually work well-and if not it would still be h...

I've been planning to major in physics for a long time now, and sort of considering a concentration or a minor in math, but recently I've been tossing around the idea of double-majoring. I strongly suspect that at least a handful of people on these boards have done this. Is it a good idea? What kin...
Random thought: Regular Flamethrower >>>>>>> Backburner Indeed. The backburner can be a huge amount of fun on certain maps where it's possible to frequently get behind the enemy lines, but when I encounter an enemy head on I feel very vulnerable without compression blast. Also, lighting someone on ...
I have to say I love this game, its infinitely better on PC, and people really do play like a team (with the exception of spy checking, I end up switching to pyro and trying to make there life hell). I always hear people in games complaining about the lack of spy checking, and I don't like it. It's...
I'm going to suggest Streetlight Manifesto. They're a Ska band, but they sound different from any other Ska band I've ever heard, and their lyrics are actually very interesting. I don't like to suggest only one song of theirs to listen to, but if I have to I would suggest this one: http://www.youtub...
I've been using the huntsman a lot lately, and I think I've gotten pretty good with it. You seem to get a feel for the aiming, it's quite fun.
Also, huntsman sniper with bills hat looks extremely cool.

I wonder if battle medic is still as good now, before the update it was actually a big threat if you could aim well with the blutsauger. You could easily beat pyros, demos, or other medium-low health classes.

I think his point was that D&D has nothing to do with physicists. Which it doesn't, even though I'm a (not yet) physicist who likes playing tabletop. The two subjects aren't related, but in general those who like physics and those who like D&D fall into the same broad category of "nerd...
Does anyone remember how the critical chances work? Because I get so annoyed at the 1-hit kills from the engineers and I can't remember how it works. I'm not sure on the specifics, but on the gravelpit developers commentary, they say that "The better you've been doing in a life, the higher the...

But this will not save you from the searing pain of being stabbed in the back by the spy.
Wait, pyros don't run around spychecking? Those are some pretty stupid pyros in my opinion. I hate pyros so much. I spend a large amount of time sneaking in behind enemy lines, and am all set up for a perfect backstab/sap, and some pyro comes blundering about holding mouse 1, ruining all my careful...
So. Backstabs. They've been buggy for as long as I can remember, and now they just got a little stranger. Apparently melee hitboxes are big enough for you to backstab someone without actually looking at their back. (Seriously, WTF. Video. ) They've been like this for a while, I think it makes sense...
Doesn't your university assign your roommates for you? I know mine did, I had to fill out a short questionnaire on my preferences for quietness and cleanliness (dead silent and extremely clean), and my music tastes. I have yet to find out who my future roommate will be, but I hope it will be a perso...

Today I learned the differences between the president and prime minister in countries that have both. I realise that this varies greatly depending on the country, but there is a general pattern.
