I used to want to program, programmed through high school and realized I couldn't spend my life just typing out algorithms and tearing my hair out looking for minute logic errors.

Getting a business degree in Accounting and Info Systems instead; if I can't program I will just run the department full of programmers.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I do believe that I am once again the youngest person on this forum. (16)

BUT FOR A PERSONAL TRIUMPH: I am keeping up on schoolwork for the first time this year, hooray. And working on projects that have been put off for years in a few cases.
Goddamnit kitkat, you make me look late
Come check out The Bino and The Ni'Calls
(Or don't these are old and embarrasing)

Nope, I've got 14 days to go until my 16th birthday, making me 15, and thus the youngest regular.

Yeah, Rys, seriously, what gave you that impression? Over here, programming is considered one of the few "safe" choices. There's a reason it's short for €$¥£Programming£¥$€.

I'm a freshman computer science student, s'great! JOIN US.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I think Didero has a degree in the fake sciences, too.  Or at least he's very close.
Ayup, it's been Didero, BSc for a few months now. (The 'BS' part means it's Economics :P)
And with a little luck and hard work, I'll have my Master's degree come Spring.
After that I'll actually have to start being useful >_>

Not so! Get a PhD and go into full time academia. Never leave school. Never grow up. Never stop drinking!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

That's right. Whereas Sam, I'm sure, took the opposing route of leaving school, never growing up, and never stopping drinking.

My oldest brother is doing that. The PhD, I mean. The latter not so much, he's turning into a grown-up far too quickly, and he only drinks the occasional beer.
Whereas I'm pretty good at not growing up. (The drinking, not so much).

I had a triumphant summer with a nice road trip, and a girl who now runs with me... so I can't complain!
OK, both of you die and let us know what happens.

This is going to be unrelated to most people, but over the summer I became an authorized SCA armored fighter in two styles and fought in the SCA's largest battles at pennsic as well as the novice tourney...I'm proud of it.

The short of it is, an SCA armored fighter wears hardened leather or metal armor in key places for protection, they battle with weapons made out of rattan, the fights are not scripted, its real. And the blows hurt, they leave bruises at times. In fact a strike has to be hard enough that if you wear weapon and armor were of that era that it would actually cause damage, otherwise its a light hit.

Its not LARPing, and its not reenactments. Its the real deal and its amazing.
