    I'm not complaining but just listen to this:

    A week before my Geography exam, my mark was a 78%
    On the culminating activity (worth 15% of the final mark), I got 47.5%
    On the exam (also 15%), I got 80%
    After all of that, my final mark is an 84%

    If you ask me, thats sweet.

    Wow that's great mine average is kinda 4 and a half over 5, :almostmad: stupid german teacher :almostmad:
    Good night everyone(tell me this is weird :D )
    EDIT:Just a song about that matter

    Wait for Sleep

    Standing by the window
    Eyes upon the moon
    Hoping that the memory will leave her spirit soon
    She shuts the doors and lights
    And lays her body on the bed
    Where images and words are running deep
    She has too much pride to pull the sheets above her head
    So quietly she lays and waits for sleep

    She stares at the ceiling
    And tries not to think
    And pictures the chain
    She's been trying to link again
    But the feeling is gone

    And water can't cover her memory
    And ashes can't answer her pain
    God give me the power to take breath from a breeze
    And call life from a cold metal frame

    In with the ashes
    Or up with the smoke from the fire
    With wings up in heaven
    Or here, lying in bed
    Palm of her hand to my head
    Now and forever curled in my heart
    And the heart of the world

    I did read it, Eze. It's a beautiful poem, but I have a feeling that what I took from it might not be exactly what you meant to express. Is that good or bad?

    Either way, it's a great piece of work.

    Thanks. I thought a bit and came to a conclusion that maybe I wrote it for somebody else than me. My best friend perhaps. She had this fall and then I helped her. Kinda expressed that, I think. Oh bollocks. *feels nice and accomplished*

    Faragon: how do you think? No hard feelings, though. I get a club to the chest every other week from my sister. And yes, my skull is a bit cracked.

    Nuts, I was trying to draw a heart with underscores and slashes. Didn't work out. Oh, well, at least I tried!

    After much America bashing on SP, I finally ran across something giving a European country a good bashing.

    Not sure about the validity, but it's hilarious:
    ----------------

    The Compleat Military History of France

    Gallic Wars - Lost. In a war whose ending foreshadows the next 2000 years of French history, France is conquered by of all things, an Italian.

    Hundred Years War - Mostly lost, saved at last by female schizophrenic who inadvertently creates The First Rule of French Warfare: "France's armies are victorious only when not led by a Frenchman."

    Italian Wars - Lost. France becomes the first and only country to ever lose two wars when fighting Italians. Wars of Religion - France goes 0-5-4 against the Huguenots

    Thirty Years War - France is technically not a participant, but manages to get invaded anyway. Claims a tie on the basis that eventually the other participants started ignoring her.

    War of Devolution - Tied. Frenchmen take to wearing red flowerpots as chapeaux.

    The Dutch War - Tied

    War of the Augsburg League/King William's War/French and Indian War Lost, but claimed as a tie. Three ties in a row induces deluded Francophiles the world over to label the period as the height of French military power.

    War of the Spanish Succession - Lost. The War also gave the French their first taste of a Marlborough, which they have loved every since.

    American Revolution - In a move that will become quite familiar to future Americans, France claims a win even though the English colonists saw far more action. This is later known as "de Gaulle Syndrome", and leads to the Second Rule of French Warfare: "France only wins when America does most of the fighting."

    French Revolution - Won, primarily due the fact that the opponent was also French.

    The Napoleonic Wars - Lost. Temporary victories (remember the First Rule!) due to leadership of a Corsican, who ended up being no match for a British footwear designer.

    The Franco-Prussian War - Lost. Germany first plays the role of drunk Frat boy to France's ugly girl home alone on a Saturday night.

    World War I - Tied and on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States. Thousands of French women find out what it's like to not only sleep with a winner, but one who doesn't call her "Fraulein." Sadly, widespread use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement in the French bloodline.

    World War II - Lost. Conquered French liberated by the United States and Britain just as they finish learning the Horst Wessel Song.

    War in Indochina - Lost. French forces plead sickness, take to bed with the Dien Bien Flu.

    Algerian Rebellion - Lost. Loss marks the first defeat of a western army by a Non-Turkic Muslim force since the Crusades, and produces the First Rule of Muslim Warfare: "We can always beat the French." This rule is identical to the First Rules of the Italians, Russians, Germans, English, Dutch, Spanish, Vietnamese and Esquimaux.

    War on Terrorism - France, keeping in mind its recent history, surrenders to Germans and Muslims just to be safe. Attempts to surrender to Vietnamese ambassador fail after he takes refuge in a McDonald's.

    The question for any country silly enough to count on the French should not be "Can we count on the French?", but rather "How long until France collapses?"

    -------------------
    German General and Italian General prior to their forces being overrun:

    German General to his Aide: "Fetch me my Red Tunic"
    Italian General: "Why do you change your clithes now?"
    German General: "I don't want my troops disheartened by the sight of my blood when I'm shot."
    Italian General: "Fabulous idea !" "Aide-Fetch my brown trousers"
    -----------
    The other day a senior DOD staffer was reportedly asked by a reporter :

    Q . " What will the effect on the Iraq operation of the French not participating?"

    A. " Going to war without the French will be like going deer hunting without an accordion."

    -----------
    Another French joke that I'm sure most have heard before:
    France is selling a bunch of their surplus WWII rifles. They've never been fired and only thrown down once.
    -------------
    Watching "Special Report" on FOX last night, Fred Barnes replied to the comment that in France and Germany there is a lot of anti-American sentiment right now by saying, "Well, in America there's a lot of anti-French and anti-German sentiment right now."

    Thank you, Tal. I just didn't realize you could do that :shake: . Hey! I'm using smilies again! I must be way up!

    high-75 points :D
    normal-50 points :)
    low-25 points :(

    I start every day at the normal level, unless the day before was so bad/great that it carries on into the next day. (i.e. 100 points one day would raise the normal to 60-65 points the next day)

    That would probably be one of the moderators; and out of them, probably Tal.

    Good news! The doctor said that the swelling around my head has gone down a bit, and I should be ready to leave in a week or two (it's amazing how fast an abishai can heal) +10 points
