Actually said that in the middle of a lesson once which resulted in me being sent out until the end of the lesson which was at least half an hour and the teacher threatened to ring my parents. oh noes.


haha. my friends were playing "virtual tennis" making pop noises and the teacher went mental as he thought it was me, then looked to my friend sitting next to me :lol:

we have a new teacher now who makes us do homeworks though :(

my friend, with our old teacher wrote once 'I don't care about RE, eat my shorts' and the teacher said it was okay :p

We get a C1=warning, C2=demerit, C3=detention then it goes all the way up to C9=Permanent exculsion. :fear:
There's only one person, i think, who's got excluded. But he's like mental, totally mental. He was excluded for like 2 weeks at a time and they took him back (don't know why :confused: ), only then did they realise he was a 'danger to other children' :blink:

I have some credits on school :cool: and here don't exist the suspension.
About religion: since when I study, I have classes of religion. Why? Because my school is controlled by Catholic church.

I'm studying a Phd in Operational Research (Mathematical Optimization) in the University of Bologna, Italy.. but I'm not Italian.. I'm a McLaren's fan in the Ferrari's land...
In fact, the Ferrari factory is not far...

Well yes, plus they're bleedin' obvious and grammatically shaky.. :p

What you do is use the translator to write the bulk of the letter, then iron out the mistakes. But often, as we found out, that can be more work than actually writing the thing.

Edit: Quick game: try translating a passage of English into German, then getting the German and translating that back into English. See what you come out with. Usually it's hilarious, and demonstrates how shaky translators are. :roll::
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

I'm studying Mathematics at the University of Durham, United Kingdom.

Pretty fun, modules are Complex Analysis, Linear Algebra, Analysis in Many Variables, Statistical Concepts, Codes & Probability, Numerical Analysis. My favourites are the last 3 because I like collecting data and then analysing it using Mathematical models.

Wow you are from Durham! But not the uni I see!

I pretty much live on the Science site all day, the library is immense when I'm not in lectures, and the large circular multi-coloured building in the middle!
