Well I have a news update on my intellegctually disinclined class. Most of them have failed the didn't do good in the English midterm, some have recieved a 48 in a class they have been in twice so far, and probably going to be in it 3 times. Ros. you know what I mean when I say these people in my class are brianless. However, this has suddenly become a windfall for me. My english teacher seeing that she needs to help these poor souls is devouting time to it, but I don't need help, and she knows it. SO she told me I can work on anything I want during class as she helps them. Furthermore she offered that I don't even show up for class for the remainder of her helping them. This is so sweet for me http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif. and I starting to like being a Junior in HS.

Doesn't your school offer AP or Honors classes, so people who want to learn can learn w/o the morons? I'm in Honors classes, and it's easier for me to mow through stuff.

EXCEPT in my Adv. Algebra class, where the teacher can't really teach, because she's disciplining the "Remedial" (AKA They failed, hard) kids, and the 4 of us that want to learn, can't, because she can't fully explain it.

ya, I'm in advanced math, I sleep through that so I might be able to help you if you have problems.

AP courses are only offered to Seniors I'm a Junior so.....I can't move out of the class.

I've said before that I'm in the English B.A. with Honours program. This semester however, I am passing as a philosophy student.

In my first year I have to take at least 4 ENG courses and 4 PSI courses. Through serendipity, three of my English classes were last semester, and my Philosophy classes are all this semester.

I'm doing the same thing in four classes, and trying to keep straight what answers belong to which teacher ('cause it's not "right or wrong," it's "what they want to hear" http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif )

Fortunately, there's a <FONT COLOR = "red">babe</FONT> in my remaining English class, so it becomes worth-while. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/cool.gif

Yes, a similar thing keeps me alert and awake in MY english class. Also, she is directly in between me and the prof so I don't OBVIOUSLY stare at her.

I think the reason the rest of the world uses the metric system is to SOUND like they drive fast.

So some of you guys never heard of IB?the "Bac" is very well know in the french educational system (the one I'm in...) I am currently in "premiere S" (I think it's "Lower 6th forme" for you guys...) anyways after the "premiere" you' ve got one more year: "Terminale" then you're off to Universtity or "Prepa" (Prepa is when you study for Bac+1, Bac+2 etc). the Bac starts in premiere (oh my god i'm gonna have it !!!) but only in the french literature subject. When you are in Terminal you get the Bac on everything else. The total points that a subject can give you depends on the serie you choose once in "premiere" ( Scientific (S), Social economics (ES) or Literature (L): those are the three main ones.). Anyways studying for the Bac in "Terminal" is hell: you've got a total of 10 complete subjects (you cannot choose; they give and you can't say no. On those 10 subjects I am not counting sports... ) to know and pass... My brother passed it last year with "mention bien" and after all his effort he was damn happy. I'm planing on skiping Terminal and getting to university.
Thrawn you are crazy for doing the bac specially when you are not obliged doing it (in french system must do it).

Will it be on all the 11 subjects? or is it different?

Since everyone seemed so intrigued, an update:

The babe and I will apparently be going to see Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon tonight (we're currently Em'ing back and forth to find a place to meet).

I also seem to be the only reason she's passing the course. She misses almost every class, but I type up my notes and send 'em her way.

Either she's a brilliant actress, or she's actually interested in what I have to say.

Oh, and she's a redhead. . . but not a natural redhead. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

Don't remember the name, but if this is the same stuff I'm thinking of, it's probably because it'll take your head clean off.

We had a fun time last night. It wasn't a date date, BTW, but her and her two friends and me (after the movie we ditched them and went cruising).

As for the redhead thing, when I knew her last semester, she had brown hair (and did last night as well, actually), and her red hair had brown roots. I assume that brown is her natural colour.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon rocks, incidentally.

First I'll correct your mistakes (in bold):
Alors, Master (j/k)Jem tu n'a pas repondu la question de Gold Leader--c'est des unités ou d'unités?

Moi, je pense qu'il avait raison la première fois. Mais bien sur, je ne suis qu'un cochon d'americain, et il y a longtemps (16 ans)

depuis j'en ai etudie a l'ecole... wazzat? http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/confused.gif? what did you want to say? study what, french??

As for Gold Leader, it depends what he means: its d'Unités if he means:
Long Live the International System of Unity
and its des Unités if he means:
Long live the International System of Unities
but it can also mean:
Long live the International System of Units

So both of them can be correct depending on you want it to be: plurial or singular.

How do you do the french accents, anyway? I don't seem to have them on my keyboard...

Jem
03-21-2001, 07:39 PM
well I just type '(next to the : key) or `(next to the 1 and ! key) and then the letter you want an accent on (é è à...)
or if that doesn't work just use the command:
hold "ALT" then "130" for é
hold "ALT" then "133" for à
go from 130 to 151 for every letter with an accent....

Oh yeah, tomorow I have an unofficial French IB (for training but still is important) and this morning I was playing basketball and I fractured my right hand thumb. I can't write so can't do the IB, people will think I did it on purpose... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif
