  1. I just watched Saving Private Ryan. I love the way they portray the horror of battle by bringing out the sound and playing absolutely no music. They do that with a lot of the movie, actually, and it fits. And when they play the music- it reminds me of how much I love John Williams. The way that each character brings out personalities of wartime and how they conflict and work together. The way the characters interact is gold. I also loved the plot and all that good stuff. 10/10. I recommend it to anybody that can stand gore in movies.
  2. Speaking of essays, I'm loaded with college app essays right now. Ugh. But I have to say, the prompts for them, as with beaubie's essay, are really interestng. My favorite is what you regret most about your life and what you would change. I responded with, basically, I would change nothing. Because everything in my past has shaped who I am today, and I love who I am today. Even something like watching my relationship with my dad slip through the cracks during middle school has made me the caring and loving person I am today, so I wouldn't even change that. What about you guys?
  3. I didn't..... It was a kid I know. His friend apparently told him you get quite the "mental experience" shall we say when you take them.
  4. I would expect it. Not a new low, just reminding people of how low they are, if you ask me. Anyway, I really like how Pittsburgh seems to continue to be cautious with his return. I would hate to see him come back a couple weeks early only to go down again a week later.
  5. He should be back in time for Toronto and maybe Pittsburgh, no?
  6. NFL

    Go Lions. The loss will be good for them-especially because they lost to a capable team. Now the Cinderella story is over and they can get back to work.
  7. U of Michigan lost, the Lions lost, the Tigers lost, and the Habs lost. Terrible sports weekend. :(

      Thanks for the encouragement :P

  8. If you are a classical music person (and maybe even if you're not), you will appreciate this. It comes from the movie Inception, music by Hans Zimmer.
  9. Never take a sleeping pill and a laxative in the same day.
  10. I don't get allowance, but I do eat a lot. At least I'm not fat.
  11. What's a really good hypothetical question?
  12. I was checking out this band called Modest Mouse. Not sure how I feel about them...
  13. Once upon a time, there was a woman pregnant with twins. Everything was progressing normally until she got in a car accident and fell into a coma for 6 months. After she woke up from her coma, she realized she wasn't pregnant. She quickly contacted the doctor and asked him what happened. He said not to worry, she had her kids, one girl and one boy, and her brother came to name them. "Oh no", she exclaimed "My brother is terrible at naming anything. What are there names?" The doctor tells her to calm down and tells her the girl's name is Denice. "Oh. I like that name. What is the boy's name?" "Denephew"
  14. I am currently applying for colleges and was googling good college essays when I stumbled upon this piece of gold. Enjoy. The following was taken from an actual application for admission to NYU (New York University) NYU Essay: In order for the admissions staff of our college to get to know you, the applicant, better, we ask that you answer the following question: are there any significant experiences you have had, or accomplishments you have realized, that have helped to define you as a person? Gallagher 's Essay: I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru. Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge. I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller 'number nine' and have won the weekend passes. Last summer I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me. I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me. I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prizewinning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis. But I have not yet gone to college. For the record, he got accepted.
  15. Kool-Aid World Cup of Hockey or World Juniors?
