Who says titles need to have anything to do with a post's content?

Anyway, instead of bumping old threads, I'd just like to wish anyone taking the AP CS exam with me tomorrow good luck.

Thanks, bro. I'll need it. I'm so stressed out... My whole life depends
on these ACT tests; if I don't do good, there go my chances of
being accepted into an Ivy League University... Then I'll have to
kill myself.

it won't be the end of the world if you don't get in one. but try, you could; but if you don't, don't take it too hard.

Thanks. And good luck to those that are taking more after tomorrow, along with the tests tomorrow.

screw an ivy league university. Come to Akron or Kent and become a dirty hippie. Plus, I bring my cube down to the student center and we play smash brothers all day.

I've never figured out why you call your top universities 'Ivy League', can someone possibly elaborate?

I was thinking of applying to MIT last year, but I took one look at the page for foreign admissions, it was something like "You should have at least $40,000 available per year for living expenses, if you are coming to the US from the UK and do not have family/accomodation here." So, I stuck to a good-old UK university.

Someone I know actually went through with an application to MIT, and spent weeks telling everyone how amazing the admissions tutors thought he was, and how due to large applicant numbers they would have to defer his entry for a year, and he was saying that he decided he would turn them down, as he didn't want to take a year out. Then he made the mistake of leaving his rejection letter on his desk, where one of my friends saw. If there's one kind of person I hate, it's liars.

The Ivy League is the Conference that most of the pretigious schools are in like Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, etc.

Took the test today, it wasn't very hard at all. Hope I got a 4 or a 5.

It is called the IV league because it is IV not Ivy. It was originally 4 schools, thus the roman numerals IV.

I didn't think it was too bad. I posted at school, then my teacher didn't like that, so I got off. But I'm not going to discuss the actual test other than how I feel with how I did. Will have to see in July, I hope I did better than I thought. I'm hoping for a four.

I doubt anyone from the college board will barge in here and yell at you for discussing the test :p.

The multiple choice was pretty easy, and even though some of the short-answers required a bit of thought before you coded them out, I thought they was even easier.

I'm mad at myself.
I messed around too much and didn't start buckling down and studying until about last weekend.
I didn't know the case study at all.
I knew the subset well enough, I had it down.
I think I did well on the free response.
I skipped 4 multiple choice(2 I didn't get to), people kept coming into my exam room and interupting.
ACK!
I really hope I get a 5, I did some math and from what I think I did, I either got a 4 or bearly got a 5.
I'm so worried, I messed up on some stupid stuff, I didn't get enough sleep, man...

Yeah, that makes you lose time.
That's why I had to skip 4 questions.
I would of preferred being able to answer them all.

I really, really want a 5.

I'm not a $$$$ing troll!!!

Ken, why are you even bothering with the ACTs? Even if you do
go to college, you probably won't finish (you know, because of
the alcoholism). Why would you even want to go? Your family's
loaded, it's not like they're going to let you become a bum. You'll
always be safe. You should enjoy your life and live off your parents'
money.

Kermi's wrong. It is in fact "Ivy League", not "IV League." It
doesn't refer to the number of schools (because there were 8 when
the term was first used), it refers to Ivy growing on the walls.

alpha
05-07-2003, 07:20 PM
skipping four is fine. the curve will hopefully be around a 65% for a five. we'll see.

free response number 3: i just screwed up. i couldn't think right today, let alone that problem. i'm confident with the MC, and most of the free response. ahh, july july july.

well, 3 more APs to go.

Ouch, you really know how to hurt someone, Ken. I don't know if
I'll ever be able to get over that comment. I'm a horrible excuse
for a troll..

:( Kill me. I don't want to live anymore.

Do you actually think you're capable of finishing college? It doesn't
matter how smart you are, Ken (we all know you're a genius). You
have a problem with alcohol. You can take that as a troll-esque
comment if you want, but it is true. Any person that gets drunk
regularly before the age of 17 has a problem. How old were you
when you started drinking? 15? 14? You're not even old enough
to buy the stuff, and you still have trouble controlling yourself.
Imagine how irresponsible you're going to be when you're 21,
living alone (or with your fratboy roommates), and with access to
a huge wad of cash your parents have given you.

You won't be able to get through your first year's Spring Break.

You're an alcoholic. Tell your parents... Sure, they'll ground you,
maybe take away your Audi (what parent would want their 16 year
old, alcoholic son driving when he has a problem with Alcohol), and
probably limit your contact with your homies. But it's for the best.

I'm just thinking about you, Ken. I love you. I don't want anything
to happen to you.

05-09-2003, 08:59 AM
You've always been able to give me a good laugh, ethy :D.

I never drink and drive, so I don't see the harm. Hell, I haven't really had anything to drink in about a month anyhow.

I would argue with you, but we both know it's fruitless. Funny you should mention what you did though, one of my oldest brother's friends died in a car accident last night. I think my brother said he was drinking.

//edit: I just realized that this is probably the best you can ever come up with when you're trolling me...it's the only thing you harp on about.

kermi3
05-09-2003, 09:26 AM
I have to side with Ken. I'm coming from one of the most drunk cities in the US and my classmates started drinking at 14 or 15. We even had a bar that hald our high school was at every weekend. One night a bounce tried to refuse to allow the 16 or 17 year old son of the bar owner in...the bouncer was fired after 5 minutes on a cell phone. (And did I mention the parents doing keg stands @ our last day of school party?)

People are generally very resposable about drivers, and they seem to turn out ok in the end. My university has a massive drinking problem, but no one drives and the alumni seem to have turned out ok.

I'm not sayin all of the drinking is good, not by any means, but perhaps it isn't as bad as you make it out to be ethic.

Drinking is wrong when you're 15 years old. I'm not going to expect
any of you to understand. You all appear to be very selfish
people that care more about next weekend's party than anything
else. Really, I'm glad I never went to college (and barely even
went to High School).

He's 16 and he's only gone 1 month without having a drink. AA
members don't even consider that to be a long period of sobriety.



Ken:

I doubt it. There are a lot of things I hate about you, but everybody
already knows you're a drunk -- so why not play off that? Besides,
I think it's better than resorting to one-word name calling... "Troll.
You're a troll. Troll! Troll! Blah, blah, Troll!" Brilliant, Ken. I'd hate
to have a confrontation with you in person; you show no mercy.

"Troll! Troll!"

Jeez, do you really think I'm a troll? That's just lame. You and Govtcheez,
(the two people who've called me a troll) have both said more
troll-esque comments than I ever have. Blantant hyprocrisy.

>You're bothersome and people tire of you saying the same
>damned thing in every little reply you make, troll.

Picturing you behind that keyboard, teary-eyed, hitting the keys
with anger almost makes me laugh; that is, if it wasn't so sad.
I guess it's typical of every rich, spoiled (and you are spoiled,
you can't deny that) kid. You have a difficult time coping with
things, huh?

You're too emotional, Ken. You should get some help. You're
throwing a tantrum like a little kid. You've resorted to childish
name-calling and, even more lame, trying to rally support against
me. Is that how you are in real-life? When you have an argument
with someone, do you speak for everybody else around you in an
attempt to gang up on that lone person? You're speaking for a lot
of people when you say that everybody is tired of me. Then again,
you are a cool guy; maybe it's safe to assume that everybody will
always follow you.

People are tired of me, eh? So what? Why would I care about
that? It's not like I'm trying to entertain people. But even if I was,
I could make you laugh easily. You laugh at dumb things; all I'd
have to do is pull some overt sexual reference from American Pie
and I'd have you laughing for hours. It seems you find anything
with the word "lesbian" in it funny. Hehe, I bet you giggle everytime
you read your own sig.

Hey, here's an idea: if you're so tired of me, why don't you add
me to your ignore list? You've already added Chris (which you
always remind everybody of in every thread he posts to). As a matter
of fact, that goes to everybody. And if the mods are sick of me, too --
they're more than welcome to ban me. Who knows, I may actually
decide to stop posting soon.

The reason I say the same thing over and over again is because
you can't seem to get it through your head just how obnoxious I
find you to be. It's not only the valley-boy, extremely-trendy, club
kid, self-imaged obsessed aspects that I dislike about you; I also
don't like your ego, either. You constantly brag about how much
better you are than everybody else: How much your car costs,
how physically well-developed you are, or how your IQ is so
high, your mother won't even tell you what it is (probably
because she thinks you're cocky, too. Doesn't want it to go
straight to your head.)

You may think that all of that stuff will get people to like you, and
maybe some people will, but real people hate you for it. They hate
the fact that you get a $50,000 gift for no reason other than getting
a your Drivers License. They hate hearing about how you'll never have to
go through life worrying about anything (except maybe BS relationship
garbage that you High School kids cry over) while they work two
jobs just so they can afford the payment on the 72 month loan
they had to take out to buy a Hyundai Elantra.

>You're not funny, witty, clever, or anything revolving around
>intelligent.

I've never claimed to be smart. And if you've ever paid attention
to anything I've said, you'd know that I've even claimed to be
an idiot. I've never taken an AP test, the SATS, or the ACTs, but if
I did, I wouldn't do good. So what? That's another thing that I
don't like about you and a lot of people on this board. The
intellectual elitism that a lot of members here show. How many
threads have there been about how stupid somone is based on
the code they've written? Just because someone isn't an experienced
programmer, that doesn't mean they're an idiot. Great, you're smart;
good for you. But keep in mind that being a genius doesn't necessarily
mean you're not a shallow weenie.

I'm sure you're going to have a hard time believing this, but maybe
there's something out there than I can do better than a lot of
other people can. And if there is, you can bet I wouldn't hold it
over the heads of the people who couldn't do it.

Now I'm done. If you want, you can make fun of me for spending
a friday night writing an extremely long reply to comments I really
didn't care about in the first place. Go ahead, troll.
