Just popping my head in here to say hi, as per requested ( seeing as i've just opened up an account here ). My name is James, i'm English and, coincidentally, through some miraculous stroke of misfortune, in England.
You'll soon learn, that I, that being me, has developed, through reading countless historical texts which appear to have no end to their sentences, a love of commas which can be used to expand any sentence, however short it may originally have been, to the very lengths of what is capable in a single breath. I've a strange obsession to try and include at least one comma in every sentence, including this one.
Seriously - how do academic texts expect to get read so easily with that much punctuation?
I'm currently a History Undergraduate ( which means I read a hell of a lot about stuff that happened before I was born, desperately try to remember it and then scrawl theoretically incorrect interpretations down in the panic of exams ). The end goal of this endeavor is hopefully to become a History Teacher, and spend the rest of my life in the eternal gloom that teacherdom brings - the challenge of keeping yourself, at all times, one step away from mental instability.
Nah, I like sharing knowledge - and History in general; so teaching the subject combines the two perfectly for me.
I'm not a physicist, or computer scientist; my highest mathematical achievement is my GCSE, and my highest computer related achievement is completing Sonic the Hedgehog in one sitting ( along with my AVCE ICT grade ); but I enjoy the type of humour shown in xkcd ( I have an inner geek in here somewhere, that I let out every now and again ).
I guess that's enough for now. I'll mostly lurk, but i'll pop my head in when I can.
