    I'm only a superWOman penguin because our fearless supermod assigned that role to me. we don't even know what my powers are (they remain yet untested), so it's hard to know which ones would be "cooler" than mine.

    Orgo Exam over!

    I can't believe how easy it was :eek: Our professor is in California and we had a sub proctor.

    the first 1/2 of our exam was literally the first half of the practice test. The practice test in itself was really hard, but since there's only 13 of us in the class, we finished it outside of class and were able to go through all the synthesis questions in-class to make sure we got them right.

    The rest was drawing reaction synthesis, and O.M.G. he picked easy ones for us! The only thing I couldn't remember was the catalyst used from our lab experiment from week 2, but it was extra credit to answer that. I got it right though (sulfuric acid) woot!

    So I think I got an A - I can't believe it!!!!!

    BUT, I only think it was easy because our prof wasn't there to answer our questions. Next exam will be much harder.

    We both have super speed, strength, and flight, but I can shapeshift, go inside your mind and mess with it, and walk through walls. I think that makes me cooler.

    Watching The Island. I liked it. However, a lot of people told me it sucked. Those were the same people that said Pirates of the Caribbean was awesome, but I didn't think it was that great. =/

    iTunes slows my computer as well. 256mb RAM here. Thanks for making me feel slow, Tee. :(

    Use winamp for your comptuer playlist. Doesn't slow down a thing.

    Do you see something similar to that happening in the near future? What happened to the pig organs that could be used in humans? I think the pig has some sugar-based thing in the tissue that wouldn't work on us folks, but without it, it would...

    I thought it was totally plausible with the creepy big-business nature behind the plot. Not that big pharma and med companies are really bad, but it makes you wonder how we get the things we get today...

    although your attempts at antagonizing me are admirable, my expertise in that department stems from 32 years in the role as "little sister", experience which you can not and will not ever be able to obtain. feel free to ask my poor older (enginerd) brother about my prowess in that area.

    but keep trying. you're getting better. :thumbup:

    well, basically you use your bat to smack a poor, cute, defenseless penguin (not unlike myself) as far as you can across the frozen tundra, just for kicks.

    in other words, it's a rockin' good time.

    Click on the snow monster thing and then the penguin jumps off the cliff. You need to click a second time to swing the bat. This could become a dangerous procrastination thing at the office :p
