It's not like it isn't a crapload of work anyways. And it's only loosely based on the game.

What if someone recognizes it?
I have to repeat k-12..

Actually I don't know. As long as the administration and the project review people don't recognize it, I'm fine.

Arts & Entertainment / Senior Project
« on: November 29, 2013, 09:18:59 AM »
For my high school senior project I am composing a concert band piece over which I will solo on alto saxophone. Under the stipulations of the contract, it must be a completely original piece, however it won't be. Nobody needs to know that except you guys.  ;) It will be loosely based on the music from one of my favorite games, Shining Force. Listen to the "mp3 original soundtrack" clips here.

http://fantasyanime.com/shiningforce/sfmusic.htm

I am taking a few ideas from here and arranging them in a classical style. The concert is in March, I think. I'll have it recorded and I'll post it here for your enjoyment. I'm not sure if there's much to discuss about it, but I wanted to let somebody know!

Flat Earth Debate / Re: The existence of gravity and the sun
« on: November 29, 2013, 06:02:45 AM »
It's hard to say exactly how the sun was born or how it works, but could you explain your theory in more detail. One second you're saying hydrogen atoms are simply moving closer, then a "snowball" happens and voila! Infinite energy through heat and light! Forgive me, but I don't quite follow.

Is the sun really upside down in Australia?

Yes, but it's hard to tell.

The moon would be easier to tell though.
circles upside down is still circles

Arts & Entertainment / Cannibal Holocaust
« on: November 05, 2013, 06:50:08 PM »
It's a 1980 film where actors mingled with tribes indigenous to the Amazon rainforest. It is a highly controversial piece of work. Animal cruelty and sexual violence are frequent. A large turtle is killed on camera. A monkey is partially decapitated on camera. Some type of squealing rodent is killed, if I recall correctly. Overall, it's a pretty disturbing bit of film with a creepy intro song that sticks with you. Discuss.

I have applied to 14 colleges in the past week with less than five hours work and no money spent. Commonapp is like a cheat sheet for applying to schools.

Don't go to college, you'll regret it forever

That doesn't seem like sound advice.

Funny, I was just about to do a similar thread.

I don't know squat about Propranolol, but I've been considering using Adderall for my SAT and ACT. I've taken the SAT once before, and did well, but was completely aware of my exhaustion for the last hour and a half. It is my understanding that my focus and concentration will be more extreme and last longer than without. I have had many people vouge for it's effectiveness.

However, it is illegal without a prescription and I don't have ADHD or ADD or whatever. I friend of my cousin gets adderall, so I'll just buy off of him. I would probably to a threshold test a week or so in advance, to make sure I don't bug out on test day.

I went ahead and did this, and saw definite improvements.

SAT without adderall
math - 720
reading - 630
writing - 650
total - 2000

SAT with adderall
math - 800
reading - 670
writing - 710
total - 2180

I don't want to attribute too much to the drug though. For the second test, I knew what to expect and was able to pace myself more effectively. It definitely seemed easier and went a lot more smoothly. I don't feel guilty about it, and neither should Thork!

It's Al-Qaeda.. There's no "i".
Actually, it's القاعدة, which is commonly romanised as al-Qaeda, al-Qaida or al-Qa'ida.

If you're bored try to make clockwise circles with your right foot. While doing this, draw the number “6″ in the air with your right hand.

Your foot will change direction – Pretty interesting, huh?

Pretty annoying, actually.

Thork stole my post. The overuse of the 4 5 1 chord progression and its variations in Western music is overwhelming. Even more annoying is the fact that those songs are repeatedly successful.

The tomato meter is just a measure of whether you should see something. 98% suggests something unmissable, which it is.

Either way, I'm excited. I was told to see it on IMAX, but I probably won't.

I'm excited to see it this Wednesday. I generally agree with rottentomatoes and am encouraged by an unheard of 98%. I've never heard of the director though, so we'll see.

I am trying to keep his tongue out of my mouth, but here is me getting kisses.



It strikes me that this is proof that your body does not have a left hand side, which fits which my Right Hand Side Only Theory that states that anyone who posts under the name jroa on a forum will not have a left hand side to their body.

The evidence is there in the picture and far 100% of the photos I've seen confirm this belief. I am aware that other photos may exist but they have been manipulated to show a left hand side that doesn't exist. Also, I am also aware that anyone who says that jroa does have a left hand side has been tricked by an optical illusion, probably based on the fact that they are being told regularly that jroa has a left hand side by some self-interested organisation with an ulterior motive.

If jroa had a left hand side why would it not be visible in this picture - you tell me jroa is a three dimensional human being but he's clearly a two dimensional being with only a right hand side. I don't know anyone who's seen him in three dimensions and I believe that anyone who claims to have done so is going to be lying. If he had a left hand side, would he not be showing it in this picture. You tell me that it is possible to show both sides in a picture, but then why hasn't he done so here? The reason is because he doesn't have one. All the evidence points towards this fact. Also, I believe that it is possible for two dimensional people to exist - all the ones I see on my computer screen and my television are two dimensional after all.

Finally, I believe that anyone who says jroa is three dimensional is lying because they are trying to cover up the truth that every person I've never met in the real world is two dimensional - this includes everyone i've ever only seen on TV or in a picture. 3D television is faked in order to try and 'prove' that these people are three dimensional but it is just manipulation of the images of two dimensional people which gives this illusion.

Happy to talk through this Theory with anyone - remember never to trust any opinions that are widely held and regularly confirmed: these are the ones most likely to be untrue because mass acceptance implies brain-washing which implies nefarious motives.

your retarted

Flat Earth Debate / Re: Triple Right Triangle
« on: September 28, 2013, 10:56:23 AM »
I didn't bother to read the entire thread, but in case it hasn't been pointed out, Thork is dumb. You can't "scale down" the experiment by walking in a smaller triangle. This "experiment" on a round earth will only work if each side length of the triangle is halfway to the opposite side, as Roundy pointed out.

That aside, the concept is dumb. I don't see how it would be possible to test. Also, Rounders, you sound dumb when you mix Euclidean and non Euclidean geometric terms. Don't talk about a triangle on the surface of a sphere. It makes no sense.

It certainly isn't dumb when earlier in the thread we made it clear that a straight line in this case would be considered an arc. We had established that to squash any confusion and the FE'rs agreed.

It is dumb because it isn't easily tested. All it is saying is "If RE is true, then this is true." Actual evidence is "If this is true, RE is true."

.. Unless you have a method by which we can test this.

No that is not true. RE science claims the triangle "experiment" will work even if you do not walk halfway to the other side. I'm not saying RE science is correct, I am just stating what they themselves say about it. Roundy is mistaken (it happens).

I do not see why a triangle on a sphere makes no sense. I can cut a triangle out of paper and put it on a ball. I see WITH MY EYES a triangle on a sphere makes sense.

Where has "RE science" claimed it works scaled down?

Also, the moment you bend the paper, you lose the triangle.
