Re: Actual Drnukenness!

When I listen to music every song sounds like the best song in the world, which I must remember for later so I can fully appreciate it.

Re: Looking for Class Hobbies

I have tetris and blockdude on my calculator, and that's what I resort to when I'm bored in class. People think I just like calculating things.

Re: Time Management in College

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...

Re: Math Books

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.

Re: When did lying become kidding?

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...

Re: Recommend one artist

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...

Re: Double Majoring Physics/Math

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...

Also, lighting someone on ...

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...

Re: Team Fortress 2

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...

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...
