Re: Omegle!

I like to stay up on my memes. It's good to practice once in a while.

Re: "Packages" Duscussion

http://xkcd.com/281/ came to mind.

I do love getting packages. This sounds so tempting . . . if only I had $365 with which to enrich my life.
On the other hand, wouldn't it get a bit tedious to cut through that tape and all ever day? I guess you would become an expert at it.

Re: Omegle!

I met this nice Chinese girl. But she had to go. Then, the first time I decided to say "Don't say ASL," this happened: You: don't say asl Stranger: Gay cyber? You: *fail* You have disconnected. Once I met someone who lives on the Florida panhandle like me! And was also sixteen. But he got ...

Re: Your last words?

"Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt."
Depending on how I'm feeling at the moment, it may change to
"Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt; except...it kind of did."

Re: So, I'm going to a math state competition next month

I gather you're going to state MAO? My friends are going there too! Orlando, right? As for references, you could try something like, "I was surprised to learn the other day that in Italy, trains run on spices." Or, "I think I just saw a bunch of red spiders!!" If you're not afrai...

Re: Science teachers

My freshman year, the teacher who taught the majority of the freshman Biology (Pre-IB) classes didn't have enough room in his schedule, so the AP and IB Biology teacher took on my freshman class. While I love the freshman teacher (he's coach of the academic team), I am so glad I didn't have him. He'...

Re: "New Car" Discussion

Loved the comic, especially the alt-text. It's mind-boggling to imagine what kind of world this would be if everything in my spam folder were actually legit. The last virgin idea was used up in Flatland . I was surprised to learn exactly how many books were based on Flatland. It's ridiculous, becaus...

Re: "Borders" Discussion

The artwork is beautiful for this one. The gnarled tree and the city below are both so well done.

Re: Mnemonics you love

For chemistry class, we had to memorize the gas laws. I find that silly, short mnemonics are the best. Result: Boyle's law: P 1 V 1 =P 2 V 2 P rince V ladimir (you know it's PV just 'cause) Charles' Law: V 1 /T 1 =V 2 /T 2 V ladimir on a T ree (You know it's V and not P because Charles and Vladimir ...

Re: Language practice threads [new: Hungarian, Urdu]

Gujarati is my second language. I can speak fluently, but reading the script is a slight problem (whoo hoo transliteration). The Gujarati and Devanagari scripts are similar enough so that I can read either, with minor difficulties. I would lovelovelove to have some practice in either Gujarati or Hin...

Re: "Well" Discussion

When I first read the title--after reading the comic--I thought it meant something like, "Well..." The sort of thing you'd say after receiving an awkward truth. And then I realized that it meant the well itself. And then I realized that "well" has a lot of meanings. It pretty muc...

Oh, I am jealous beyond words. That is really quite amazing. More proof that my teacher has no idea what the hell he is talking about (when I asked him, he said the ninth edition sucked as well).

Re: Best textbook you've used?

For me, I'd have to go with Rubenstein's Human Geography, Ninth Edition. I'm using the fifth edition for my AP Human Geography class right now. Yeah, fifth. My school sucks. It's actually kind of amusing to read it, though, because it is so outdated. My teacher keeps saying how bad it is and how th...
