I think that there is definately some inherent madness creeping into the site due to lack of TG and FG, I know TGA is on at the mo' but there have been some seriously weird posts just lately (and not by me for a change, no wait there was that one. ...) er. ... Cobol74 trails off, goes home. ...

Funny, I think the ratio of asshats to normal folk goes up a lot when Top Gear comes back on telly. There's always noobs signing up to ask their retarded questions about Jezza, James and Richard's clothing and other stuff like that.

People still play that game?!?

I hadn't played it for like 5 years. then I moved into this building, where I'm LAN'd with hundreds of other people, so 5 friends and I have taking to playing some nice 3 on 3s after school. While I get bored of it on the internet sooooo fast, it's great fun with friends.

Apparently I'm 31.2% insane. I don't know whether to be worried or pleased.

Yeah, the ratio of new-threads-locked goes sky-high, and the average IQ of users plummets - I always look forward to a new series of TG (of course), but I also know I'll be shaking my head and sighing a lot more when I browse the forum.

I'm sure everyone and their mother knows about this already but in season 10 episode 8 of TG at the very end of the show, Jezza 'drives' that BMW that can drive itself. After they finish that segment and they roll the credits, if you wait till the very very end (after all the credits) you get a small clip of Jezza going "I'm bored now". And then the TG logo appears.

Oh I hate maths so much right now,

I have this questions where I have to find the angles of a parallelogram, the one on the top left is 105, the one on the bottom left is also 105, now it says that opposite angles are the same so that means that the angles on the right are also 105, that adds up to 420 which makes no sense because all quadrilaterals are supposed to 360.

Its doing my head in!

No, wouldn't the opposite angles be only 75?? The opposite angles are the same, they're both 75.

105 + 105 = 210

360 - 210 = 150 <-- Therefore, both remaining angles, if the same, are 75.

huh wtf, that simply doesn't make sense. If the two corners on the left are larger than 90, you can't make a parallellogram. Sure it's not a trapezium?...

Mmm angles.

Look at this image and you'll get the answer

Should I go to school for physics or mechanical engineering? Or maybe robotics engineering?
