Re: favorite lines/quotes from books

But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World I'd like to quote this entire book, but this part especially.(end of chapter 17 for anyone who might be curious.) The pain grew worse, and as he was...

Re: Subjects you wish you were good at?

Zut alors! I'm terrible at French, which is a pity as I really adore the idea of knowing another language. I've taken it since the 7th grade, and I'm really just entirely average at it. Eh, c'est la vie, I suppose, but it would be nice to know another language. (I'd also love to be better at Chinese...

Re: books you read for school and actually enjoyed

In junior high we read Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. It was random and confusing and weird in all the right ways. Just about everything else was a puke fest. (If anybody makes me read Kindred again, I'll jump off a bridge.) Kindred by Octavia E Butler? Read that in 7th grade. The only enjoy...

Re: books you read for school and actually enjoyed

My school has assigned some fairly good books in recent years, but I can't quite say the same during my lower school experience. (Well, not saying that I didn't read anything good then. Nothing was assigned.) We wrote our first book reports in the second grade (you know, the type which says "I ...

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

My chemistry teacher was talking about something or other (I sort of zoned out...) when suddenly he started to list of different amounts of substances. The beginning of the list was rather normal: If I had mole of hydrogen... If I had 12 L of oxygen," he starts rambling for a little. "and ...

Re: Really good ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING food

marshmallow fluff, nutella, rolos, honey, chocolate sauce, wonder bread, and whipped cream.
microwave it all to perfection.

it forms a delicious and nutritious sandwich.

Re: The Official Running thread!

sprained my ankle last week. :( It wasn't too bad, so I've been walking on it for the last couple of days. I did a short run today (probably no more then 20 minutes) and it was incredibly sore. I used a compression sleeve for the first four days, but since the swelling has almost entirely stopped, I...

I only take ice baths in warm weather, and I always make sure to dry off after, but I guess that it probably didn't help. :-|

Re: Best song lyrics.

Almost anything by Ludo. The made a rock-opera about a time-traveler, dinosaurs and zombies. (it's called broken bride, and I highly suggest it.) But my favorite song by them is on a different album, and is titled Hum Along. It's deliciously romantic. Maybe you'd be kidnapped by pirates And they wou...

Re: The Official Running thread!

I'm a high-school xc runner, running six times a week, and competing 1 or 2 times a week. My current PR is 22:11 for the 5k. (However, this was at the end of last season... my last race was run at 23:57.) My goals for the remainder of the season are to break 22 minutes, and run the state meet as par...
