thank you #24 I didn't know that....and I've suffered through many a Chem lab. Thank you for sharing the "something new" that I will learn today so that I'm smarter tomorrow. To the rest of you haters, shouldn't you be watering your plants with Gatorade or something. It has to be good for them, duhhh it's got electrolytes! (please don't ask what that has to do with anything if you haven't seen the movie idiocracy)
Yea 90, I learnt that in 1st year Combined Science (age 11-12 for the non-Brits). It was a Grammar School, but the basic curriculum doesn't vary that much from a run off the mill Secondary School. Also (I didn't catch the number), most 'bosses' in N. Ireland aren't particularly intelligent, they just know the specific business in which they work and have adequate skills in organising people below them. As for the ability to retain and spew random facts on command, my fiancé's IQ is 15 points less than mine, and he does it constantly, much to everyone's irritation. The only time I share them is when I feel particularly compelled to correct him (or someone else for that matter). Therefore intelligence doesn't seem to be a factor in the knowledge of random facts. However always knowing the correct fact on demand is a skill worth having.
Yes, Kaity, we saw your original point: that you dislike learning new things in unconventional ways. That fact was something I learned in high school and remembered because it was interesting that all my life people referred to something incorrectly. It is immature of you to become annoyed with someone for "shitting out" information that you don't know, purely for the reason that you don't want to learn new things. Instead of cartoons, maybe you *should* watch the Discovery Channel. To the guy who assumed I am fat: take a look at my profile pic and judge for yourself. If you think that is fat, you have unrealistic expectations for women. I am content with my physical features regardless.
I go onto FML to laugh and get a break from all the annoying, self righteous people at my school. Listening to all their racist jokes, all the constant bullying, and the "I'm better that you' attitude really sucks. So you can imagine that it is pretty frustrating to get on FML only to come across people like the jerks at my school. And you can stop taking shots at my intelligence, although I laughed a lot when I read the one about fourth grade and rounding my grades!
I completely agree, Starbucks coffee is vile. There isn't a huge coffee culture in Northern Ireland, but the other half and I do love a good cup of coffee (it's very uncommon here to have coffee machines at home, and we do). The Starbucks cafés here are reserved for the pretentious pseudo-businessmen who in reality work bottom rung in a bank, yet insist on pinstripes and slicked back hair, and the 'emo' crowd of mid-late teenagers. There is far better coffee to be had in places that don't even advertise it. Oh the single redeeming quality; those lightly cinnamon-y iced pastry roll things... purely because they are so hard to find over here. :(
Gone off eggs. Hydrogen sulphide is the smell of rotting eggs. Other sulphur compounds smell similarly bad. But chances are, as the OP said it was her, it was a fart. OP - You were probably wasting your time, chances are your boss knew it was you. But at least you tried to keep face, so you know, just carry on and act like it didn't happen. I doubt people'll be asking you about it.
That's hilarious. My sister tried that, but I knew it was her.
And I hate it when people hate people who are smarter than them. And to Kaity111, that is actually a good source of information. You should get used to dealing with people who are smarter than you, because you're going to run into them a lot.
