Yesterday, during Physics class, we tried to use as many Beatles references as possible during our discussion of the lesson. It got to the point that “You don’t get credit for that idea, because that wasn’t a Beatles reference”. Highly entertaining. We were calculating forces in a dart gun. Here are a few of my favourites:

…which equals xmaxwell’s silver hammer.

What are the forces when I feel my finger on it’s trigger?

…when distance is at 64.

…when the gun goes “Bang bang shoot shoot”.

I had fun.

In other news, on my history test, I couldn’t remember the name of the Senator that came up with the Missouri Compromise, so I wrote Paul McCartney. Do you think Mrs. Johnson will accept that answer?

Other amusing Physics quotes:

That was pretty cool. Everybody got t-shirts. That’s the real important thing, you know. –Mr. Taylor

They are doing a bunch of creepy things at MIT. Stay away from there. –Mr. Loh

I was going to cut the tags off, but then I saw that they said “Do not use near water”, so I decided to leave them on. –Mr. Taylor, as we embarked on our lab where we stuck lit light bulbs into cups of water.

Kudos to Sannali for the reccomendation! I just downloaded a bunch of music from “Jekyll and Hyde”, and I love it. As I’m no longer just filking everything, I doubt if I’ll use anything from “Facade” directly, but seeing as I don’t live in a vacuum, I’m sure that it will have an influence on aspects of some of the songs. As for the “Men at Arms” title song, it’s definitely back to Vimes. I don’t know what came over me. A few days ago I was thinking about why I wanted Colon to sing it instead of Vimes, when Vimes would be much more appropriate for the song, and it occurred to me in a giant “DUH” that Vimes is incredibly speciesist, and the song would be all the more amusing if he sang it, as opposed to Colon. So that’s taken care of.

In other news, I now have a real driver’s license, so that’s good.

I went to Borders yesterday to pick up a copy of “The Amazing Maurice”, only to find the prices ridiculously high. I think I’ll order it online, as I’m already putting together quite the shopping cart on, my new best friend. Unfortunately, when I went back to the Minivan of Doom, the key wouldn’t turn in the ignition. I panicked, as my parents were out of town and I couldn’t remember my aunt’s or sister’s cell phone numbers. I was about to call AAA, a service that helps stranded motorists, when I found that I had programmed my aunt’s number into my cell phone. I was saved! Eventually, by pummeling the steering wheel enough with brute force, I was able to disengage the messed up anti-theft device and get the blasted engine running. I hate this car with a passion.

Other amusing events? Fun with telemarketers.

Me: Hello?

Solicitor: Is this the lady of the house?

Me: Is this a telemarketer?

I love my life.

I think I’m going to lunch now.

More character selectors. Gotta love ’em.

Stolen from Rebecca M, I believe

You are Samurai Jack.

You have been thrown into the future by the evil Aku, a fire demon who has

taken over the world. You battle against his evil robot creatures to try

to vanquish Aku, and return to your homeland and home time.

You would look crazed if you weren’t so damned calm.

Who would you be? Meep Personality Test
