Re: "Redwall" discussion

I'm sure it's been said or at least alluded to plenty of times in this thread, but looking back on it now I wonder just how many proto-furries Redwall created that would otherwise have just been standard fantasy fans.

Re: I should maybe go outside

When I used to play games in snes9x a lot, I went to hit the function keys in real life to save all the time. it's really strange. Then there's tetris. After playing it a lot you tend to see it every time you close your eyes. I would go outside more... but it's cold out.

Re: Your GPA in High School

My school didn't calculate a weighted GPA. My unweighted was 3.91, and I'm guessing my weighted GPA wouldn't be too far off that.

Further, the building is way warmer than any other on campus, and since the class is at two, I've usually just fi...

Mind reading again. I wanted to look something up today real quick but I couldn't seem to get on wikipedia, and google just wasn't helping me fast enough. I was quite frustrated.
