Boys, I love you.  I do.  But I simply cannot grasp your enthusiasm for math.  It makes me cringe just looking at that mess Doon made!

Haids, the following is for you and I. Now, normally, I don't like Jimmy Buffet. But I'm pretty sure I can make an exception for this. Marvel in what is perhaps the greatest song of all time.

dd.  I didn't think it was possible for you to get any cooler.  But my God, that is the most brilliant song ever written!  Bravo! :bow:  (And hey, I saw the Pacific Northwest in the midst of the song! :D)

Seriously, math is going to hold me back from ever graduating college.  I've been dragging my feet with my freaking 2-year degree for five years because I CAN'T DO MATH!  Jimmy Buffet is right.  Math suks.

I thought you'd like that. My dad loves Jimmy Buffet, and I had to suffer through all of it while growing up. Every time I got in his car he had a different song from the guy. But this song, and a select few others, caught my ears. This one in particular; I've always hated math, and this pretty much sums up why. What I really want to do is play this in math class. But I know I'd get kicked out if I did.

This thread is practically begging for these:


So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Since we're posting silly math problems...
I have my cake and eat it too, until it's gone.  Then I can't do either.

Hi all!

I'm Olav, or Ole, as everyone typically knows me. I am 30 yrs old and live in Minneapolis, MN. I am an Advertising & Design major that is currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Media Business. My hobbies include foreign music, Greek and Norse mythology, and reading.

I grew up with the King's Quest series. I really don't think I have an absolute favorite of the bunch. If I had to choose, I would probably say KQVI, because it's so epic. I've very much enjoyed the fan projects that AGDI & IA have put out. I have been following PoS' activities, but I have only just recently been able to sit down and start playing The Silver Lining. In fact, I just finished Episode II, this morning. This is simply amazing! The story, so far, is very much to the style of the original series. The music is spectacular! I'll probably work myself crazy to see if I can finish the next episode before the weekend is done!

I was heartened to see Roberta Williams' feedback on the game. Then I saw that TellTale is planning a relaunch of the series. I would say they very much to live up to, between fan loyalty and the sheer quality, dedication, and passion that have gone into this project.

You're in good company, my friend. :)  DELLING! DELORIA! WE'VE GOT ANOTHER MYTHOLOGY ENTHUSIAST!

I'm glad to see another Quester has found their way to us.  Pull up a floor pillow, have a cookie (if Weldon (Wilco) will share ;)), and stay awhile.  We love having new adventurers!

I was until I realised there were weekly pantheon meetings (with cupcakes) in which they chose the most ridiculous ways to torture people who were convinced they were gods. :P But I need a golden headdress too and so must clearly be Sif. :P

My now 6-page verb table proves that everything Greek is wrong and complicated. :P

alright, I'm gonna introduce myself, too.

My real name is Robin, I'm 19, I come from Switzerland ... Buddy is the name of my cat, so that's somehow the meaning of my username ... (If you meet any "Buddy-Something" in any internet forums chances are reeeally high that it's me).
Since the Swiss school system is kind of confusing I won't start to explain what kind of school I am in at the moment. However, as far as I have heard it's on the same level as your American colleges. English is by the way not my native language (as you definitely have noticed), but our school provides a bilingual school program. So more or less I have to speak English all day.
My hobbies are actually kinda depressing - I watch a lot of television and I read. I also enjoy writing, and my biggest dream - if it ever came true - is to become a scriptwriter for a TV show in America. And that's more or less everything you need to know about me.

I just wanna say that I have read through some of the comments of this topic, and I really felt at home from the very first second. Some of you love writing, too, there is a Digimon fan who created his own digimon (I also did that when I was a kid XD and Digimon was also my first anime!) and somebody wrote she was a big Disney fan (I enjoy the old stuff much more. In my opinion Disney somehow lost its magic when they started cooperating with Pixar. Their movies are rather based on slapstick humor, and the morale of the stories somehow got lost. Anyway, Finding Nemo is one of the best movies, so I am still open to the works of Pixar.)
And some of you seem to hate maths. Stupid subject. I enjoyed the silly math problems above! And I felt their anger and frustration!

You guys seem to be fun. And I am looking forward to being a part of this community. If you have any questions just ask :D Thx for "listening"/reading.

Buddy, which gymnasium do you go to? I'm also doing a bilingual programme with Greek as my major in Liestal. :)
