I am open to this! I hope you "do" find some finger typing steroids. I Just naturally type fast. I have been typing on the computer sense like the age of 4. Seriously. In all seriousness. Just test yourself and eventually you will be fast.

A good jedi would sense the presence of the ninja as well as his intention to attack.

This would void most of the benefit of a sneak attack.

-I get downsized for having a vagina if I speak one word into my head set.

Reasons I love xBox live:
- I can act like a lesbian, and for some reason that angers people ;D
- It's really funny when guys downsize you, then you blow them away with either, a noob tube to piss them off, or you just beat them with an AK-74 ;o

I got my first computer when I was four, hence my facisnation with all things electrical, and I type fast. Though I'm only fifteen... I wonder what I'll be like before I die.

-imagines an old man typing madly-

When we're all old people, we will be completely technologically competent, unlike today's batch. You see, they didn't grow up with computers, or t.v.'s even, but we have. *smiles maniacly*

But when we're old and ready to die, all the technology will have changed! I do suppose we could adapt to it, but it'd just be annoying.

Technology is my best friend. I am fascinated by all the gadgets and gizmos that come out. Call me whatever you want, either way, I will be a techno freack for the rest of my life!

I would've called you a Techno Freak, seeing as there's no 'c' in 'freak'.....

It doesn't bother me that he hasn't read it yet, but it really bothers me that he threatens me with it. But now that he's proclaimed he'll never read it, I have nothing to lose, so I can keep bugging him if I so wish.

These things would be so much easier if he just read the damn series. If he has pride, well, let him never tell me he read them. It's just ... -sigh- Gah.

I used to never understand religious fanatics, but I like to think I'm a bit closer to seeing their point of view. What with my new religion and all, and me actually having feelings about it ... This is all rather distressing.
Carr, my problem isn't that I don't want to read GRRM, I just don't like being constantly reminded that I need to read his work. It ruins the reading experience for me when people continuously hype a book, and if I can't read a book and enjoy it as a book there's no point in reading it. I have to let the hype die down before I read the books. There are a lot of books that I should read that I won't right now because everyone gets all excited and screams at me to read them.
I will read them one day, but right now I need to focus on other things, and you know that. I have a lot of books to do for review, then school work, etc. I have things that have to come first.
And I'm not actually mad at you. So if you think that I am, I'm not. Take most anything I say outside of the debate room as either me being weird or sarcastic or some other form of something that shouldn't be taken entirely seriously.
