>attendance ratio of about 2/3 and a homework ratio of about 1/4. Does that

I wish I could do that!!!! I spend around 1/3-1/6 of my time working, the
rest talking. I wish that I could do that little homework!!! Honestly,
homework's the worst thing. If it were just "go to school, come home live

Yep. Now, the thing is that with my science fair project, none of the
judges understood what I was talking about (Linux Vs. Windows), so a rather
stupid project (bacteria growing in hot water) won. Anyone else have
