Recently I was on a long flight to Hawai’i and I was faced with the difficult task of choosing between 4 or 5 fabulous movies. I had the difficult problem of choosing between Cars 2, Monte Carlo, and Captain America. But then I saw that Captain America co-starred Samuel L. Jackson. This made up my [...]
This is how I like to remove my toenails. Thanks for the help Reed.
My parents’ garage has gotten worse. Again. My father treats the garage as though it is an extension of his own body – how far can he make it go with the absolute minimum of repairs, putting off major surgery until it is probably too late. It has “worked” in a way, but you can [...]

Systems Neuroscience nearly killed me. It still might, I don’t yet have my grade. In an effort to grab an average grade I decided I needed to study harder than I ever had before for anything.
