    Neurological issues. I think there is evidence that sections of the human brain are hard-coded for particular activities.

    What is the official name of the stereotypical triplanes that the German Empire used during World War I. The ones that have three wings and are red with white squares that contain the symbol of Imperial Germany?

    And where can I buy one? I know, it's not realistic, but I'm just curious as to how much a working one would cost.

    Over summer break I really screwed up my sleep schedule, and now that school's approaching I need to fix it/reset it fast, how do I go about doing this? Do I just stay up a night or two, or is there a better way?

    I used to stay up an entire night, three nights before school started, so I had two more nights to fine tune my sleep schedule.

    Hi guys. Long time no see!
    Unfortunately I come to you cause I need your help... :blush:

    I'm going crazy over here trying to remember this one actors name.

    He looks a somewhat like the guy in this picture (specially around the eyes and jaw line, and he has brown hair I think or dirty blond), except hes older, 20-30 years older.


    I'm also pretty sure his first name is David, but I could be wrong.

    I can't for the life of me think of a single movie he has been in, but he was in a lot of movies back in the 90s, I dunno if he is retired now.
    He even had a few leading roles in smaller movies.

    Help me out if you know who I'm thinking about, please.

    Most women would find it creepy. I'm marrying a Cambodian, and I don't speak a word of it.

    I don't know about that... I mean it's gotten so late recently that I can't fall asleep because the damn birds chirping keep waking me up.
