*does some calculating* That's...three one-way bus tickets within one zone over here. I pay 70 euro a month for my bus and train pass (two bus-zones and one train).

The roads are kind of narrow. tongue

Public transport is crazy expensive up here, for some reason. But so is everything else for that matter. I talked to some English students once, and they said that the only thing they had ever found in Norwegian stores that cost less than it did back home was steel wool (you know, the kind you use for scrubbing pots).

WMG: Norwegian steel wool is made from their beards, explaining the lower cost and abrasive properties.

Note to self: visit Norway at some point in life to re-convert them to the worship of Khorne work in the public transport industry.

... I am so far behind in that comic...

Also, public transportation here requires either a dollar and a quarter, or a University ID card flash.

^ Lucky bastard. A short bus ride here costs 4.50 dollars. My montly one-zone bus pass? That's 54.11 bucks. A regular, launch-date videogame? About 90 dollars. It's extortion is what it is.

If you don't believe me, check with a currency calculator.

I have to say, I have never laughed so hard at the death of a character I actually liked.

Courtyard Droll is, as I said in my homestuck RP, my new favourite character.

Good Ending #1. Thanks for playing.

Now that that is finally done with, we can move on to other adventures...IN SPACE! What do you say, Axes? Do you want Leona's improvements to happen off-screen so that we can a nice introduction of it first when she enters the field, or would you rather we played out the scene in the workshop?

^^^^ Well, given that Axes won't be here for a couple of days, we should probably either wait for the duration of his absence or get moving right away.

It probably does horrible, horrible things to roads though, not to mention changing one must be hellishly difficult. But yeah, it would be appropriate.

You expect interest, attention, or even basic human respect from your classmates when giving a presentation?

You haven't been in the real world much, have you?

And that would also be why presentations are bordeline useless.

I have to disagree with you there, if held in the computer lab (the only place with a videoprojector in the entire school) it's one free hour of surfing.

Everything was going well until someone laughed when they weren't meant to. The nail in the coffin was my attempt aat illustrative audience participation got rejected.

What were you trying to illustrate?

Consider working on a Death Glare, I find it helps to get the frakwits to shut up. Then again, in my case it was more a case of them all having the same thing to do, so they weren't particularly hostile.
