You get to your senior year of high school, take 7 AP classes, and then talk to me about homework, boy.

I won't unless it's necessary.  I get Wii internet from a different spot than PC internet, so if PC internet is down I use Wii.  Plus I might try and get a USB keyboard.

That shouldn't be too hard, almost all modern keyboards have a USB connector instead of the old PS/2.
Unless you meant 'find somewhere' instead of 'buy', then that might be a bit more difficult :P

Then how about this? Jury Duty.

Thank god I wasn't selected to be the juror on the case I sat in today. I don't want to be a juror in a murder case.

Another gripe I have, the weird way the legal system chooses to pronounce everything, like Juror, petit and Defendant.

My gripe is stalkers. You know, the people who think you're their best friend/boyfriend simply because you like smiled nicely to them once.

Is this topic also count as a hate topic? Because if it is I freaking hate biology college tests. They are not that long, at all. 45 questions seems like a good test number. I just wish they used simpler words when making the frocking questions.
Of course it probably wouldn't be college if it wasn't hard.... Oh well. Live and let live.

You get to your senior year of high school, take 7 AP classes, and then talk to me about homework, boy.

Hey, you take 5 IB Classes that will ultimately accumulate to you taking two 'SL' and three 'HL' level test, most of which 3 hours, most of which largely essay based, some having no multiple choice at all. Imagine the course load for those classes, I had to write 15 pages HANDWRITTEN last night over 5 separate ideas over the course of roughly 10 poems by Sylvia Plath and Evan Boland. Then imagine that plus a calculus assignment. Thats about average for me. 

You can't talk $--- until you've been in the IB program.

Oh, and I have a 4000 word research paper (with about a minimum of 10 sources required) due october fifth.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

A wiseman (Homer Simpson) once said. "The trick to getting out of jury duty is to say you're prejudice against all racial minorities."

I wouldn't mind jury duty, but a murder case would be stressful.

I was called once for jury duty, but I was leaving the country the next week so I couldn't do it.
Probably not a Goat, either.

What state Cobra? I mean Jury Duty is mandatory without valid reason and companies aren't allowed yto fire you for it. Most have to pay you some compensation. >.>

Apparently that was the only time I had to go this week.. no more Criminal Cases to sit for.. now I have nothing to do until Friday when I go back to work. >.> I wonder if there is a shift to pick up on Thursday.

Victoria, Australia I'm not sure what the local laws are. I'm not even sure how successful her company will be in getting her out of it. She only does reception for them so it's nothing major.
