    My, that's unfortunate.

    Are you 18? Drop out. I'm sure you could find a wonderful job as assistant night janitor at your local McDonald's.

    I had no money, and my mom spends 6 months window shopping before she buys anything (or gives me money to buy it with).
    Note that I was one of two people in my school to pass the ACS high school chem exam (and with the highest score: 54/80).

    Nope, govt, I'm 17 and I have no intention of being a janitor.

    Well, aren't you hot stuff. In 6th grade I named every country in the world (except I put Finland twice - sorry Finland.). So what?

    Want a calculator? Get a job. You don't even have to work long - even at minimum wage you could get a scientific calculator for about 3 hours of work.

    I now have a TI-83 because there is no way in hell to pass trig without one. And that fact managed to get the money out of my mother so it worked.

    Lets see if this works, here is a picture of a slideruler I found:
