    Every man of legal age gets registered for National Service. Those unfit for military service do desk jobs in the civil service. The only way excused is if you in a coma or something like that.

    I'm actually conscripted into the police force. Some of my friends are already in the army training though.

    I'm afraid to go to bed because I had a horrible nightmare (tame by everyone else's standards :rolleyes: but horrible to me) right before getting up this waking cycle. :(

    Man I stoop on my thermo test. Especially when I confused myself on what the problem actually asked for.

    like 1 minute of work would give me the right answer for problem 2 of the 2 problems (I have the answer hidden in my work, just I thought problem asked for something else, as well as the second diagram). Instead I'll get like a 50% on that problem. I also ran out of time with the other problem, but I think I have it expressed right (did not get to put in a numerical answer though). Should have had it soon, but again, see first line of this post. so yay ~60-65%s.

    It's not just I get stuff wrong, but that it's tantalizingly close to being totally correct.

    Rant: Every time I post a new thread, all I do is embarrass myself. Maybe I should just stick to replies.

    Why has the embassy just received an ultimatum from a certain 'Ferrus' threatening to nuke them unless they hand over the geek?
    Police? In Singapore? My condolences.

    That awkward moment when your crush asks you who your crush is on.

    and you have no idea what to say.

    Well, I got out of it by promising to tell her on the 27th, the date my choir goes to sing in DC. We'll be on buses and stuff...and we're going to the Old Post Office...so I'll probably tell her when we're both looking out over the city.

    Wasted thirty seconds of my life trying to figure out what I posted in this thread earlier this morning only to remember that I just subscribed to the thread rather than posting.

    If you can't bring yourself to tell her, have a little alcohol, but not too much

    My cat suddenly decided my foot was some sort of new scratching post.

    Several band-aids later, I think I'm fine.

    :lol:

    I'm a minor. What can I drink that will do the exact same thing without the alcohol?

    Find a nice older friend who will buy you alcohol, then drink it.

    Very much a first world problem; Mass Effect 3 spoiler follows for those of you who havent finished playing it:
    Spoiler :
    Bioware ruined my last week with the ****tiest ending to the best game(and series) I've ever played. I've lost all faith in story driven PC games, particularily RPG's. Bloody Inception, Battlestar Galactica(new one) and Matrix has made every writer who has a creative crisis resort to pseudo futurism philosophy to solve it.

    Got a text from my mom saying she's at the hospital, after getting very dizzy and her blood pressure rocketing up. This combined with a family history of strokes and aneurysms on her side of the family makes for an intensely alarming message. At least she's fine according to the doctors.

    Cardiovascular concerns. How first-world.
