I'm not a big swearer but Double Dash can get me in absolute conniptions. When stuff gets intense I tend to stand up and jump up and down and throw the controller across the room, especially - it seems - when it's not my Gamecube. :)

I live in India. The phone system (like most systems) is pretty screwed up. A sample cell phone number is +919811235509. All of that. So anyway, one day I got a call from some dude. It should be noted that most Indians don't seem to have the concept of "wrong number" down. This guy did. He...

I don't really mind using other people's computers, as long as it's well taken care of. That means no toolbars, firefox, it isn't horrible to look at.

I just took Physics B (so technically I shouldn't be talking about it). It was easy. The free-response were a piece of cake, and there wasn't anything too hard on the multiple choice.

In fact, all of the AP tests I've taken in my life have been really easy.

Hey all, I'm thinking about starting a martial art over the summer. I'll probably be in Utah, so I'm looking around there. It looks like Salt Lake has a Krav Maga training center. Krav Maga looks cool, but I wanted to ask around about it. Has anyone done it? Is it fun? Cool? Should I look into it?

This is also my hobby. And completely knee-jerk interjections. For example, I was once doing a lab in physics class once discussing variables with the teacher. He said something like "the resistance shouldn't matter". I replied "YOU don't matter!" To this day, I don't know why. O_o

KolourPaint is what I use instead of MS Paint when I'm in Linux. It works almost exactly like MS Paint, except it saves gifs and jpegs well, works natively in png, and has a selectable "transparent" color. Though for some reason the fill function takes forever.
