Wrote a few thoughts about the new CS, as well as making 4 map comparisons between the 3 CS games.

There was a time when I was better at multiplayer FPS games, and even then I wasn't exceptional, just better than average. Now, I mostly play for fun, and from time to time. Perhaps nostalgia made me do this. I secured my copy.

Hey, do you know any software/site that helps in solving problems or learning math? I'm talking about something like wolframalpha. The problem is that it doesn't solve always correctly, or doesn't always display the solution.

I'm bad at integrals :(.

I just ate some pickled herrings. For some days I had an enormous crave for them. They taste awesome!
I would also like to try some surstromming, but that stuff is incredily hard to find.

The magic finger: Video Link
(and for members like DiscoStu: no, I will not be shoving down your throat 720p quality, you choose the quality :P).

This is just a little experimentation with camera movements. Done because I hadn't something else better to do( what a lie, I actually had, but at least this helped get rid of procrastination).

[EDIT] In the making:

If you wonder how I did the smooth shot around the bullet as it traveled, here's how I did it: the cameras and the bullet( a thruster) are actually attached to an invisible bar that goes along a slider.
[EDIT] Oh shit, I just realized there's a children's book with this name. I better change the title.

Well I tried smoking. I felt really bad, psychologically speaking, as if I violated on one of my principles... but to be honest, I knew that someday I'd have to satisfy this curiosity.

I concluded that it's nothing really special, other than having the traditional effects of a first-time smoker like feeling a bit high. I've read that nicotine actually has some of the caffeine effects, like making you feel more focused and aware(although I don't understand how that works when you're actually also inhaling carbon monoxide, which basically disrupts the hemoglobin's ability to carry oxygen).
It's more of a social thing in my perception...

I still have some questions though. How do you actually inhale the smoke? I'm confused on this apparently simple part. Do I suck the smoke in my mouth, get out the cigarette, and then inhale air? Or do I directly inhale the smoke in my lungs?

I also tried cigarettes with no filter(those that look like a cigar). Holy crap, those blasted me.

And another issue, what's so wrong with cigars(it's easy in English to confuse cigars for cigarettes, at least for me) that you must not inhale the smoke into your lungs? What's the point of smoking a cigar then?

What are the best type of cigarettes when you want something more special? I've heard about vanilla or menthol aroma ones... what about brands?

I feel weird...
[EDIT] Ah, almost forgot about this! What about effective methods of getting rid of cigarette smoke, especially on the fingers?

Well, I just graduated high-school today. In the next weeks I'll be going to different exams for the baccalaureate. Wish me luck!

Gosh, it was an odd combination of tears, happiness and sadness... It's hard to accept the fact that we leave our colleagues, our second family...

Last night I had a very strange lesson to learn for today's math semestrial test. It was about polynomials, specifically solving algebraic equations with complex roots.

Hopefully, I knew at the test. I'm so relieved now!
