  1. Yeah I'm a girl and I play wow private server though. heh...blizzlike like playing on retail. and thanks.
  2. The reason why you go over it a million times in a week is because they are trying to get you to commit it to memory. As far as i'm aware its pretty damn difficult to get a subject commited to memory in a day, well in long term memory. What chance is it that you are going to remember it in any great detail a few weeks down the track? The fact that your grades are so high is a sign that the effort you are putting in is paying off! This is a very good thing. The School purpose isn't really set to custom fit students, its there to give a general education. You'll be up to your neck in advanced studies soon enough. perhaps you could try and see if you can do a mixed course? We have programs here in australia which allow senoir students to take up a uni subject whilst completeing highschool. If you have a look about your local campus's perhaps they have something similar? I go to the library where my mum goes to uni and just hang in there and absorb books. its rather refreshing. Yes I am the sort of person that enjoys the smell of old books. *grins*. Anyway. Theres always something you can do. No time spent in education is time wasted.
  3. This works best with xp, but can be done in Vista as well. But in vista it just makes it look alot less shinny, where in xp you can hardly notice the difference! okay first you need to right click on my computer -> select properies Then scroll down and tick the boxes so yours looks like mine, leave the last box unchecked for extra performance boost, however it'll make your display look like your in windows 98 ( so only do it if your pc is really struggeling or you somehow find that look attractive! ) note: really wasn't sure where to put this, if I failed, mods feel free to bash me with your sticks.
  4. I think you'd be best off doing this with an addon through firefox, take a peek here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8542 Just be wary where and what you give youtr passwords too. When in doubt throw it out xD...and change your password.
  5. Its been a while since i've posted, and I've changed alot. But I do find myself drawn back to reading here. ^_- not that I'd made much of a reputation for myself when I was here. but anyway. My name is Leanne I am 17 years old and I live in Australia. I am a trainee IT tech. and currently completeing grade 12 via bsde. I am a game master on a private world of warcraft server, and am learning sql to be able to dev there. I have a strong interest in forensic science, biological science and computer sciences.
  6. hey guys, my mums just gotten into uni, and we're having some difficulty find credible sources for one of her Essays. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The question is: what is meant by the term 'Modernity and what are the main features said to characterize 'the great transformation giving rise to modernity?' All sources need to be referenced thats another factor as to why we're having some issues..as most pages Google returns are not. We've had a look on recommended uni pages, but they are turning up limited results. They're not user-friendly...and even I'm having some difficulty finding results. So I logged onto here cause I know you guys are awesome at this kinda thing. I don't really need the information to directly laid in front of us, that would be useful. ^.- But a gentle push in the right direction would be most helpful. thanks in advance ~spooky~
  7. There were girls in my class that wouldn't even have a go because of the blood and the "flesh" smell. >.< I love dissections. that Gas sounds evil...
  8. Whats that one smell like?
  9. Thats insane...>.< think chemical warfare...or a least chemical blackmail could be achievable.
  10. ewww! >.< I can cope with rotting and vomit type stuff, dunno why I just don't really like the smell of latex. But I guess the acid at a higher concentration would be that much worse then vomit correct?
  11. never used Butyric acid before..what is its use?
  12. Well, i don't have any of that stuff..but I found this medical hand wash stuff i have really takes the smell away ^.^ I mean its not like I can't cope with it, its just I'd rather a pleasant smelling gloves then the Latex.
  13. Maybe its like yawning and if you talk about it, it make you aware of it and want to yawn? or maybe its an overload for the receptors of your body? I cant remember the details fully but its some kinda thing that blocks too many messages going through at once...(like with your elbow)...maybe theres some sort of thing with that? what kind of places are you guys in when this happens? sitting or standing for long periods of time? Done this ^.^ but to eliminate some of the human factors, we used a ruler and toothpicks. Taping the tooth picks to the ruler. This was all done at school, we were testing the sensitivity of the inside and outside of our forearms...well lets just say it was a chance to inflict pain on each other...cause we were using cold and hold probes on our arms.
  14. this afternoon at school has been awesome. There was enough kidneys in biology for me to be able to dissect one by my myself. ^.^ How I love dissections! The only thing i don't like is the latex after smell of my hands...the smell of the dissection i don't have a problem with..its the smell of the latex gloves...>.<
  15. okay so heres what i meant with the lines *sorry forgot to include explanation for that part* the little old man danced and danced,/;/: <--- take a break between lines The little old man danced and danced <---- continue reading to next line without stopping..
  16. Another interesting thing you could use as a source is Super size me, its about a guy who basically lives off Mcdonald's for a month I think it is. Very interesting show ^.^
  17. Go to the fast food places themselves, they should happily give you some information. Talk to the manager though not the people behind the register. Take anything they'll give you. this should be enough to get you started. just type the names of fast food joints into google and it'll give you websites ^.^ it should be easy for you to create a table from the information that is presented on the websites. think about why people use fast food as an option. You could survey people as to what they think the healthiest take-aways are, then compare the figures of the "healthier" ones to the others. http://www.mcdonalds.com.au/ Australian Mcdonalds Website http://www.mcdonalds.com/ international maccas http://www.kfc.com.au/Default.asp?page=/nutrition+information can download a KFC nutrition guide from here.
  18. My digital camera is 5.0 and takes really good pics, I'm not a pro on this subject but use mine often. if you have the money its worth going for a high Megapixel camera. Make sure they come with all your USB cords and everything. Another thing is get rechargeable batteries and the recharge thing for them and a decent memory chip, as most of the internal memories aren't very large(its a pain to always have to upload!)
  19. Thanks for your help Glider, so what part of the brain actually controls these involuntary reactions?
  20. JTHM is awesome ^.^ the comic in question on my desktop
  21. okay. ^.^ thanks for correcting me on that one JohnB. Misunderstood completely.
  22. Source : Heinmann science 3 for Queensland Regan Spence Page 21 Experiment 5- electroplating Aim- To use electrolysis to electroplate an iron nail with copper. Materials- -200ml Copper sulfate solution -piece of copper -large iron nail -accurate scales (very important) - 6 V power supply - 2 leads with alligator clips -steel wool Method- 1 . Clean the peice of copper and the nail thoroughly with the steel wool. 2. Record the masses of the piece of copper and the nail. You could use a table to do so. 3. Connect the circuit as shown. Make sure the nail is connected to the negative terminal of the power supply. 4.Turn on the power, be very careful not to let the nail touch the copper as it will spark. 5. Take them both out and record the differences in mass. 6. note the appearence of both the nail and the copper now its obvious that electroplating of the copper onto the iron occurs here mine didn't quite add up (most likely due to the scales) but it could have also been from the copper sulfate solution. You can actually watch the electroplating happing with this one!!
  23. why don't you show us what you've done so far, so we have an idea of where you are up to.^.^ so we know you've given it a go.
  24. Read it aloud! thats the best way, look at the punctuation...remember you follow the punctuation rather then the lines. Hope this helps at least a little.^.^
  25. I can make you one if you tell me how its related in the mathematical sentences. ^.^ just finished a HUGE unit on spreadsheets in BIT. I'll have a go if you could help with the sentences.
