Sad but true. You can learn a lot.. especially about economics. And if you troll the forums like us, we get into the math. Good read anyhow.


Join a car forum for an education in physics and science, political debate forum for economics and math.

I don't know. Subscribe to Arkham Asylum for Communications Studies and Economic Policies. Subscribe to WOTLK or EJ for mathematics. Read the wow forums for statistics on our curren educational system.

Since Math leads to physics leads to chemistry leads to biology, we have science covered. Since economics and social science leads to politics, we have all the bases covered.

Awww, I'm in my late teens but I started WoW when I was 16, so most of my good times were taken up with World of Warcraft, BLIZZARD! I want my 3 years back!

Running a 400+ (in slow hours) irc channel for non-commercialized asian cartoons ate my high school.

If you have Scryed on your computer or a disc, chances are I helped fansub it.

Nope. Didn't get into direct japanese port animation 'til around 2001. Even then, it was really just DBZ and Gundam Wing. I had a hardon for Robotech forever. Now it's Macross Frontier. :D

Spending time on my brand new 386DX 33 with a 2400 baud modem on local bbs boards playing tradewars ate up my high school >.>. I think my senior year I finally got a 14.4 modem
