    The I'm sure you didn't miss me thread

    About three weeks ago i sent a mod a request to BANNNN MEEEE for 3 weeks. I had 4 papers and 5 finals to take care of.

    What i learned:

    -World War I helped the British labour (you know, you write from the british perspective for long enough and you pick up on the fact that they spell **** all funny) movement, that's what i argued at least

    -Morality is located primarily in the frontal gyrus but likely utilizes a distributed network throughout the brain, i don't know if that's true but its what i argued and got a 95%

    -I'm probably the biggest screw up on the planet: http://bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=370512&page=5

    I put the date for one of my finals incorrectly on my calender and didn't realize it until 1am of the next "night" (morning). Thinking my GPA was completely screwed and my plans for next were lost, i had a bit of rum last night... Luckily, i talked to my Prof and it seems that this is common, which kind of blows my mind. The Bad thing is that he has to dock the grade. The good thing is...i've now got a month to study for the test so there is no reason not to get an A.

    Oh yeah, i turned 22...yay me.

    Well, Happy Birthday to you TQ! :

    Perhaps you should ask for another ban 'til you take that exam? Then when you're done, we'll have another excuse for a post-holiday Foo Party.

    Foo is a cast of characters. Anytime a character is not in the cast things aren't quite the same. We are missing a lot of characters around here lately. Been sorta dull as a result. So, no I didn't miss you.

    BTW, TQ, you can expect to have a recurring nightmare for the rest of your life about missing an exam. It happens to a lot of people (including yours truly) who went to university, but probably 95% of them never actually missed an exam, much less a final! Beware, your recurring nightmares may be especially brutal! Or, they may be pleasant, since you had the experience of it all working out ok. Well, assuming you do study for it and do well.

    My Professor (Jeffrey Cox, Professor of History at the University of Iowa..btw) kept reassuring me not to worry and that its pretty common. I guess i'm just grateful that i'm not one of the couple of students he has this year who are in Jail right now

    Hey timmy! I had wondered where you went, thinking you vanished or or fell off a cliff. Then I remembered you were banned! Welcome back.
