Politically correct he is not! I actually think the "Dwarf Hurling" is an intentional jibe at the PC brigade.

Personal statement: I have never personally hurled a Dwarf, and no Dwarves were harmed during the time I spent on the game :lol:

Trying really, really hard to have sympathy for my daughter after her and a friend played the Salt & Ice game. Helluva mess on their hands 3 days later

Stupid much :roll:

You should give your daughter (and her friend) the cinnamon challenge. :P

Look that one up on Youtube for a good laugh.

Because, you know, only several deaths have occurred from suffocating due to allergic reactions or just too much of that tree bark we like while playing that game.

I cant find a single source that says that anyone has died from it.

EDIT: and get them to do The Gauntlet Challenge instead

The power to assume has been abused by me once again.

Anyways, I don't think I posted about the time my teacher said all Christians should be Jews or they won't get into heaven, because Christianity means that God's plan for Judaism failed and "He [God] doesn't need a back up plan."

At a Christian school.

Edit: Heeded the warning, but wondering what I'm thankful about missing. May have to "read" the challenge, instead of watching it.

Went through a section on the Persian and Peloponnesian wars, in Greece. Not a single mention of triremes or how they were used. I like that part, those things were boss in Age of Mythologies. As in, I learned that history by playing a game and in sixth grade, and I was disappointed that I couldn't discuss them. I'm not actually mad, by the way.

Also, I was planning to change my signature to the verse about being quick to listen, slow to anger, and slow to speak, but I realized I would be exposing my own hypocrisy in doing so.

Updated to FireFox 16 when my mouse wheel started bouncing the screen around vertically.

Spent some time Googling the setup options - only to belatedly find it was my mouse - and not FireFox.

Using a spare laptop mouse - it's tiny!

Speaking of Firefox, here's a heads up to you folks....

I inquired elsewhere about installing Windows 8. Well, I installed it and I found a problem with IE10. For a bit I thought Windows did something to my computer because I came in here and was going to reply to a thread and the Enter key wouldn't respond. I tried it in notepad and wordpad and it seemed to work fine. So it wasn't Windows 8 (directly). I installed Firefox and Voila! Problem fixed.

It is a problem with the forum site itself. There is a javascript error when pressing enter under IE10.

Rant: one was for 10 cents and the other was for a penny.

Yet strangely enough on Win-8 using IE10 from the desktop (instead of the tile on the start screen) the enter key worked :/ Gladly Google Chrome works fine and dandy :)

Today was not a great day.

Of course, I thought it was going to be okay in the morning, which made it even worse.

Math class went okay, but then everything got awful, quickly. I was sick yesterday, so I wasn't there, and I missed a Bible test. My classmates were doing some of their vocab that was due next period, and I remembered it - it wasn't on the site the teachers post homework on, so I forgot to do it - and began working on it. Two people, one a perfectionist and the other more self-centered than even me, got mad at me for doing my vocab in class. Not at anyone else for doing theirs, just me. One had to look up from his iPad to yell at me, and the other had to stop gossiping with her friends. Next period, while I was still wanting to bash their faces in, our teacher had us write a response to a calm, soothing song by an artist named "Gungor". I've heard of the artist before - I think I liked one or two of his songs that I heard before - but the song was going in the opposite direction of my mind, so I wrote a fairly negative response to it. Then we had to read, which was okay - and that reminds me, I lost my book - and write a response to what we read. That went fine. Next was biology - I didn't have my book with me from Tuesday, so I wasn't able to do the homework - so I asked him if I could turn it in by the end of the day. The girl that got on to me for doing vocab earlier? She said "No." before I finished talking. And she was dead serious. If she wasn't a girl, I probably could have punched her in the face and have the class cheer me on - her obsession with being perfect in all aspects is maddening. You can get the idea from all of the cliches about people like that in high school, except she isn't a cheerleader, she isn't pretty, she's a redneck, and she doesn't actually look "perfect" in any way. Especially the time when she was asking if "occurrence" started with an "a" or an "o", because "It's UH-currence!" I did the homework by the end of the class, anyways. Also, I forgot to mention to the teacher that I shouldn't be taking the quiz since I wasn't there yesterday, so my grade may plummet soon. Next was the infamous history class. I stayed up late last night - because I forgot about the assignment - to do the maps and timelines. There's a nice, tidy sheet that has everything we need for those on it. However, I wasn't aware that the list that had everything we needed on it didn't have everything we needed on it. We were given a sheet, on Tuesday, that had the a few names of famous Greeks on it. They filled it in yesterday - while I was gone - so mine is still blank. Apparently, we were supposed to put all of the people from that sheet onto the timeline. Considering I wasn't aware we needed it and I did put everything we were told we needed on there - from the paper that she says is everything we need to put on there - and my paper wasn't filled in as they did that while I was sick, it would be thought that I would be given time to get the paper filled in and then turn it in on a later date. Nope. I got half off for not putting it on there. The sheet I didn't have filled in that I didn't even know we needed to put on there. I was given it back and told that I could fix it and turn it in on Monday. That's completely fair - except for the fact that she is still counting 10% off. Anyways, she also lost my paper that I need to study from over the weekend. She said she had record that I turned it in, but she couldn't find it. Anyways, I asked her after class if that would be on RenWeb - all of the answers to the questions, and all, as they usually are. She said it would be. However - and I have this open in another tab - neither it or the sheet I need for the timeline are on there - both of which she said would be there. So, now I'm not able to use them to fix the timeline or study, unless I can find a very helpful friend tomorrow. After that, the rest of the day went okay until Eighth period. I asked the study hall teacher if my test was there, and she went and checked her box, and it wasn't. I went to my Bible teacher's class, and he was teaching, so I didn't go in. If I had, since the period was 20 minutes in, I would've had a shortened time period to turn it in.

That reminds me, Bible class is awfully stupid. We were given worksheets, and I was filling mine out on the Epistle of Romans. I had three of the five paragraph-long answers done. Then the teacher put me into a group. We had free choice on which Epistle we would do, and the other two in the group chose Philemon. They were fine with me not working on the same thing, but the teacher wasn't. So, I had to restart and do Philemon. The teacher was saying "Don't be difficult," and I wanted to bash his face in with the nearest blunt object - he was the one being freaking difficult, not me. When he hadn't told us that we would be in groups, and the group had said it was fine that I work on Romans instead - we all had to turn in our own papers, the group was just there to ask questions to if we had any - and all would have been fine. But, apparently smooth sailing is too much for him, because I need to be asking questions that I don't have on the chapter I wasn't doing - I was doing another chapter that was one of the choices we were given to pick from, freely - and that's just too much for him. How could a young boy not have to ask friends questions on Romans? You know, even though he is given plenty of resources to find the answers without asking?

I'll probably regret posting this after someone replies. Anyways, today was very frustrating. I really hope nothing this stupid happens on our "Community Service Day" tomorrow.

Oh, and now I have to do somewhere around five projects and two tons of homework - a math project where I have to make a mobile out of triangles and four sided shapes, a biology project that includes a 5-page paper, a current event and studying with resources that I don't have for history - and fixing that timeline with the other stuff I don't have, read through the first half of Pilgrim's Progress (the part up to Christian going into the Celestial City, with the second half being his wife's journey), around 30 questions of biology homework, study for my Latin test, and finish my IBA project.
