What does 'evolve my umbreon' mean? Is it Pokemon-related? *meh is confused*

It means I'm going to go into my bedroom and **** with the **** up my ***** using a couple of ***** and then you arch your back and ****** and ***** ****** ***** like Carol Channing ***** and then you sweep up all the hair.

Oh, the times when I wish I had Photon's quick wit. I'm fairly certain there are several incredibly inappropriate ways to respond to this question given the context of what was just said - but suffice it to say - yes, it refers to pokemon.

Wow... just wow. LMAO. You never cease to amaze. I think I really needed that laughter. The best part, IMO, was the pseudo-Heroes plotline: Kevin explains that they were sent from the future to save Shinobi, who will go on to save the world from the forces of the evil Phokraj, a wicked being from the year 2099 who will wipe out humanity by releasing a deadly virus called "the gay".

@hunter: yay i just submit MGA evasion with the sideboard to the administrator who is the one that is running the online tournament. I just going to have fun and if i win thats great but if not then i had a blast playing in standard again. Yep ill be online and we can talk.

@alacar: good to see you posting again my friend i hope you are feeling better and have a good week and as always best wishes to you! *hugs*

@mr. stuff: have a goodnight and a great day tommorrow!

@photon: I find all of your soap operas pretty funny though lol I went back and read some like a week ago just to play some catchup.

Well this will probably be my last post for tonight ill be on aol and msn if anyone wants to chat with me though and also yahoo of course too. See you all tommorrow and have a great week everyone starting from tommorrow! Have a great night everyone and see you all soon.

@kev: Gudluck My friend. Im sendin my green powers onto you..^_^

*currently listenin to: INOJ - Time after time*

Thanks hunter! This will be my 2nd standard tournament and my 2nd time playing with a green deck in any given tournament format. Maybe i can borrow some luck from my first standard tournament as well since i went to regionals and got 12th place out of 260 players with a uw control deck. It will be a different deck this time but im glad ill have great luck from a great green player such as you hunter.

See you all soon! *hugs and blows kisses*

I wanted some feedback on if I am out of line on something.

1) After his cards were stolen while in my possession, I told Doug I would give him my collection as compensation.

2) He was helping Jen move on Saturday and had asked me to have the cards ready for him when he showed up. I ran out of card boxes half way through packing and when he showed up I told him this. He was completely fine with me giving him the rest after I bought some more card bozes.

3) I left for work, leavig him to help Jen.

4) I get home and he has gone through all my drawers and taken the cards himself.

As far as I am concerned, he is a thief. He had no right to go through my personal belongings without permission. Had he asked, I would have said yes, but he just did it. If someone owes you $20 and you take it from their wallet, you are a thief.

Sad! Two lost collections.:( He is wrong to have gone throgh your drawers, period. I've lost so-called friends over less. Immaturity kills.

Try to put more content in your posts, please. No one wants a warning for spam, eh?

Welcome Shink! Glad to see another member in the 'House. And congrats on the boy!

I'll avoid as much as possible, and thanks! I'm holding him again, Brandon Alexander. Last second middle name inspiration. Didn't want 'Michael' again (my middle name).

Oh i mean the one and only great green player which is you hunter
Sorry for the confusion yeah i got 12th with a uw control deck facing against a ton of affinity made my head hurt after like 4 rounds though. By the way hunter you can sign up for the standard tournament too if you like hehe. That would just be great if everyone from the house participated in the tournament lol.

1. Well what i remember most about math classes is i usually slack off doing a bunch of homework waiting to the last minute to do all of the homework then turning all of it in.

2.I like doing adding and subtracting numbers since they were fun. The hardest? I think is doing all of those story problems since i was really much of a thinker back in those days.

3.Keep an organized class schedule and just be patient with the slow learners.

4.I cant really recall.

5.I dont really use any math tools since i work at a grocery store but when I become a cashier clerk im sure adding and subtracting would come in handy.

6.I dont really remember her name but she was a strict teacher but she was pretty nice to me she had glasses and had black hair and probably was in her 40s too. She was nice to me since i always worked hard in algebra and got pretty good grades on the tests.

7. I like solving integral or anti-deriative equations from calculus when i took it in highschool and in college. The least i enjoy from any math activity is probably solving chain equations in calculus some of the problems i would do would take up 8 or 9 pages and they can be pretty tedious and frustrating.

Name: Mike
Country:USA
1)My hatred of geometry and derivatives but my utter love for it otherwise.
2)Most favorite: Being bumped up a grade in it in 5th grade.
Least favorite: I don't think I have a least favorite elementary experience (that I can remember).
3)Teaching huh? Well I'd like to keep equal focus on all the students - partially because of the new state mandated tests and partially because of the gender bias in the subject - as well as make it seem actually interesting to students so they want to learn it.
4) I never had to learn tables. That was the beauty of a private school. Technically, I had to memorize squares but that wasn't until 10th grade Math II but that was insanely simple.
5) No I dont believe so... most of the math tools I learned were in geometry and that's been completely useless to me so far in life.
6) Mr. Lamay - 5th grade then again in 9th. Was the least serious of the math teachers and actually looked like he gave a crap.
7) Least is easy: Geometry. Tied is Logic and anything from Calculus. All 3 were really difficult tho different in length. Geometry and Calculus was simply because of how most of the topics in it were explained - that is, poorly - and all the trick questions that ensued - that is, questions that didn't seem to have all the right information there but in fact it was but you needed to go the long way around the problem.
Logic was bad but only because it was hated by the teacher too so no interest was really generated in it.

OKay, here's an opinion survey that would be nice if people could answer.

First Name: Sean
Country: USA
1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes? Enjoying using my brain; Hating geometry proofs; Loving Problem Solving.

2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Most: 3rd grade, old west-style showdowns with flash cards. I was utterly unbeatable. Worst: People constantly trying to cheat off of my answers.

3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do? Use that quick-draw style of game every day (promote math as being fun), have them solve problems that require math and outside-the-box thinking (promote math as practical in daily life). Cheating, with a third: Pass around Brain Age for DS until each kid completes its daily training.

4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize? Anything above 12 is essentially not covered/memorized, so, those.

5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today? Quick calculations, money tracking come up often.

6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why? Mr. Sirois, Talented & Gifted teacher, for giving us real challenge and for exposing math as practical and necessary rather than 'Waaah, boring.'

7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Explain. Covered, pretty much.

On another note, can someone outline a survey of sorts for me, so as to be more properly introduced (see also: unleashed:evillol:) to everyone?

1. They could be either very straightforward, with a good teacher, or a royal pain and sheer drudgery with a poor teacher. Hard to remember any which were in between.

2. Elementary math was pretty easy. I don't recall a major high or low point in elementary school. Of course, I got plenty of drills at home during this time. Sadly, they had only a 5th grade math education and couldn't keep up.

3. Definitely kids in that age range can understand percents, simple fractions, whatnot...several real life applications like pretend exercises with the stock exchange, recipes involving changing the overall amounts and yields, playing cribbage and poker, and calculating odds. I have to say that most of the elementary math I knew was from playing casino games, Monopoly, etc. with my folks. This sort of activity gets overlooked a lot in schools where the emphasis is on textbook exercises and other lackluster things.
Second thing I would do is recipes. Changing recipes means doing some math to recalculate ratios...yummy chocolate chip cookies....mmmmm
4. 13s and 17s sucked. I still haven't mastered them after three decades.

5. Um, I don't own a working calculator so i do a lot of arithmetic in my head or on scratch paper. Actual higher math I use everyday are things like logarithmic regression, linear regression and statistical associations, probability calculations for statistical significance and correlation, calculus for determining cumulative dose and velocity-time integrals, and a wide variety of other minor techniques for biostatistics. Matlab, SAS, and Excel are my friends ^__^

6. Overall I'd say my HS calculus teacher. Showed us "Stand and Deliver" right before the AP test, was heavily involved in student support and tutoring, took us on a field trip to the carnival for ice cream and elementary physics of the rollercoaster. Second favoritest is my HS geometry teacher, third favoritest is my HS algebra teacher for advanced courses, also was our chess coach and an all-round wonderful teacher.

7. Most favorite: Probably trigonometry and differentials. Hated vector calculus, linear algebra, that was the last course I took as a budding physics major before I changed majors and stopped taking math altogether. I hit a wall with that class and the prof totally had no empathy for my problem so it made it impossible to continue. Oh yeah: there's a special place in hell for the writers of story problems. Sorry, I hate them.

@Snoop: Yo whats up!? Care for some conversation? seems like we are stuck here, everyone is asleep..Dont leave me without saying so though..^_^

Guys as You can see in my previous posts Ive been adding up the sounds/music I listen to.. Im gonna include them so maybe we could talk about music. I love songs. Its my other hobby around.

Country: USA
1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes?
Matricies suck hard. Not only are they absolutely impossible for me to work with, but they also rank #2 on my list of most useless things I learned in math classes. #1 is hand-graphing trigonometry functions.

2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Explain why each.
Elementary as in pre-sixth grade? I have no distinct memories of math classes from that time period. My youngest negative math-related memory was getting my first (actually, maybe only) F ever... 8th grade geometry test.

3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do?
Not sure if you mean in general, or specific topics to cover, but as a teacher I think my students would hate me: I would do a crapload of word problems. Rote memorization and generic math problems have their place, but word problems are what give math real-world relevancy, what makes you actually think about why you're doing math instead of that you're doing math, and that's the most important thing I could instill in my students - a sense that math actually can be useful in daily life.

4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize? Dude, I'm 28. I really don't remember the trials and tribulations of 3rd grade (though I do remember the teacher making the class bully cry, which made me very happy).

5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today? Beyond the very basics, I find myself tinkering with statistics surprisingly often.

6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why? My college algebra teacher was fantastic. She was very laid back and had a way of explaining confusing things in a way that makes sense. To me, that's the number 1 most powerful skill for a math teacher to have: to be able to see things through their student's eyes and frame explanations in a way the student can connect with. Too many math teachers have just one style, one method of explaining things, and constantly a student will ask a question, not understand the answer, and just give up.

7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Explain.
See number 1 for least favorite, number 5 for most favorite.

First Name: Ma. Rita Martha H. Santiago (or Myta)
Country: Philippines

1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes? During my first and second year in math class, I was getting good grades. When I hit third and fourth year, I started getting 74% in my report card come third or fourth quarter.

2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Explain why each. My most favorite math experience was when my teacher explained the basics of trigonometry to us. I was both amazed and nervous. I went into my researching hole and came out with good grades in the last quarter.

My least favorite experience was when I was explaining a certain theorem, and then I realized my calculations were wrong. I was really embarrassed; I didn't go to school the next day.
3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do? I would like to bring out the major researching kit called my laptop and show them how great math is. The second thing I'll do is tell them that most of what I just taught them is useless and I just wasted their time.
4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize? None.
5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today? The good old scientific calculator. I still use it, when I want to know the exact value for a certain real-life problem, and I use the probability sign to count my probability to get a PSP or win the lottery.
6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why? The great Roberto Contreras. Five reasons: When he taught, HE REALLY TAUGHT. He speaks good English, hence I understood him. He makes stupid jokes to keep us sane. He treats me like a little sister. HE IS SO DAMN SEXY.
7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Explain. My most favorite topic is, and forever will be, trigonometry, basic algebra and statistics. Why? Because I understand them and they seem really practical. I hate geometry because I never did understand the deal of polygons.

@Hunter44: come on you have a nice name. Can I call you Juni? Like Juniper Order Ranger? It's cute!!! *Mr. Stuff is Stuffy Doll and you can be Juni!!!*

If it's just a power thing, I'd let Darkrai into the tournament. Starters in D/P have 580 stats, which is well above average. Darkrai has 600, which is high, but pales compared to, say, Mewtwo, who has a whopping 680. Darkrai is certainly very powerful, but not really wildly more so than many available pokemon. The legally obtainable Regigigas has 670 total stats. Of course, total stats aren't everything, but it's a good general guidline.

First Name: Christopher Country: USA 1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes? The overhead. Boy, oh boy, that overhead held everything we needed regarding math. The math teacher's dream. In college, we didn't use it; but in all 4 years of my high school curriculum, that overhead had all the answers.

2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Explain why each. Elementary? Boy.. that's a stretch on my memory. I guess my best memory would be when we used the little yellow cubes to learn our multiplications and divisions. It was fun! My worst? All of eighth grade pre-Algebra. Okay, that was harsh.. the teacher wasn't exactly.. teaching.. plus my buddies made it hard for me to study.. but the work wasn't bad. It was just.. very boring and ugly.

3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do? Hm.. probably adding and subtracting big numbers. You know, carry the 1 and all that. If that doesn't count as 2 things, then the basics on fractions.

4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize? Well.. most of them are easy to me now, but I suppose the hardest for me would be 13. Okay, okay.. we never went over 12. So 12.

5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today? Dunno what you mean by this.. but I use basic algebraic skills in Magic all the time..

6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why? Hm.. back in elementary it would have to be 2nd grade. But she was my teacher in everything and I loved her. In high school.. I didn't like any of them all that much; I guess my 9th grade Algebra 1 teacher, since she was nice and the class was relatively easy.

7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Hmm.. most favorite would have to be multiplication. I guess it comes naturally to me. Better than addition. Worst would be geometry. Ick! I sucked at that class.

hi man. feeling better? Did you receive the get well soon card I sent you?? Anyway drink alot of water. Hope you get to post frequently again.

Geometry and Calculus was simply because of how most of the topics in it were explained - that is, poorly - and all the trick questions that ensued - that is, questions that didn't seem to have all the right information there but in fact it was but you needed to go the long way around the problem.

Logic was bad but only because it was hated by the teacher too so no interest was really generated in it.

Hi Seht. What's up? Anyway goodluck on school. I would like to know how you pronounce your name though.

1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes?

Enjoying using my brain; Hating geometry proofs; Loving Problem Solving.2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience?

Most: 3rd grade, old west-style showdowns with flash cards. I was utterly unbeatable. Worst: People constantly trying to cheat off of my answers.3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do?

Use that quick-draw style of game every day (promote math as being fun), have them solve problems that require math and outside-the-box thinking (promote math as practical in daily life). Cheating, with a third: Pass around Brain Age for DS until each kid completes its daily training.4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize?

Anything above 12 is essentially not covered/memorized, so, those.5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today?

Quick calculations, money tracking come up often.6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why?

Mr. Sirois, Talented & Gifted teacher, for giving us real challenge and for exposing math as practical and necessary rather than 'Waaah, boring.'7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Explain.

Covered, pretty much.On another note, can someone outline a survey of sorts for me, so as to be more properly introduced (see also: unleashed:evillol:) to everyone?

Good night folks. Enjoy the night shift, Hunter.

1. They could be either very straightforward, with a good teacher, or a royal pain and sheer drudgery with a poor teacher. Hard to remember any which were in between.

2. Elementary math was pretty easy. I don't recall a major high or low point in elementary school. Of course, I got plenty of drills at home during this time. Sadly, they had only a 5th grade math education and couldn't keep up.

3. Definitely kids in that age range can understand percents, simple fractions, whatnot...several real life applications like pretend exercises with the stock exchange, recipes involving changing the overall amounts and yields, playing cribbage and poker, and calculating odds. I have to say that most of the elementary math I knew was from playing casino games, Monopoly, etc. with my folks. This sort of activity gets overlooked a lot in schools where the emphasis is on textbook exercises and other lackluster things.

Second thing I would do is recipes. Changing recipes means doing some math to recalculate ratios...yummy chocolate chip cookies....mmmmm

4. 13s and 17s sucked. I still haven't mastered them after three decades.

5. Um, I don't own a working calculator so i do a lot of arithmetic in my head or on scratch paper. Actual higher math I use everyday are things like logarithmic regression, linear regression and statistical associations, probability calculations for statistical significance and correlation, calculus for determining cumulative dose and velocity-time integrals, and a wide variety of other minor techniques for biostatistics. Matlab, SAS, and Excel are my friends ^__^

6. Overall I'd say my HS calculus teacher. Showed us "Stand and Deliver" right before the AP test, was heavily involved in student support and tutoring, took us on a field trip to the carnival for ice cream and elementary physics of the rollercoaster. Second favoritest is my HS geometry teacher, third favoritest is my HS algebra teacher for advanced courses, also was our chess coach and an all-round wonderful teacher.

7. Most favorite: Probably trigonometry and differentials. Hated vector calculus, linear algebra, that was the last course I took as a budding physics major before I changed majors and stopped taking math altogether. I hit a wall with that class and the prof totally had no empathy for my problem so it made it impossible to continue. Oh yeah: there's a special place in hell for the writers of story problems. Sorry, I hate them.

Why thank you. Goodnight to you..Sean.

@Snoop: Yo whats up!? Care for some conversation? seems like we are stuck here, everyone is asleep..Dont leave me without saying so though..^_^

Guys as You can see in my previous posts Ive been adding up the sounds/music I listen to.. Im gonna include them so maybe we could talk about music. I love songs. Its my other hobby around.

1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes?

Matricies suck hard. Not only are they absolutely impossible for me to work with, but they also rank #2 on my list of most useless things I learned in math classes. #1 is hand-graphing trigonometry functions.

2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Explain why each.

Elementary as in pre-sixth grade? I have no distinct memories of math classes from that time period. My youngest negative math-related memory was getting my first (actually, maybe only) F ever... 8th grade geometry test.

3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do?

Not sure if you mean in general, or specific topics to cover, but as a teacher I think my students would hate me: I would do a crapload of word problems. Rote memorization and generic math problems have their place, but word problems are what give math real-world relevancy, what makes you actually think about

whyyou're doing math instead ofthatyou're doing math, and that's the most important thing I could instill in my students - a sense that math actuallycanbe useful in daily life.4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize? Dude, I'm 28. I really don't remember the trials and tribulations of 3rd grade (though I do remember the teacher making the class bully cry, which made me very happy).

5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today? Beyond the very basics, I find myself tinkering with statistics surprisingly often.

6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why? My college algebra teacher was fantastic. She was very laid back and had a way of explaining confusing things in a way that makes sense. To me, that's the number 1 most powerful skill for a math teacher to have: to be able to see things through their student's eyes and frame explanations in a way the student can connect with. Too many math teachers have just one style, one method of explaining things, and constantly a student will ask a question, not understand the answer, and just give up.

7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Explain.

See number 1 for least favorite, number 5 for most favorite.

During my first and second year in math class, I was getting good grades. When I hit third and fourth year, I started getting 74% in my report card come third or fourth quarter.1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes?

My most favorite math experience was when my teacher explained the basics of trigonometry to us. I was both amazed and nervous. I went into my researching hole and came out with good grades in the last quarter.2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Explain why each.

My least favorite experience was when I was explaining a certain theorem, and then I realized my calculations were wrong. I was really embarrassed; I didn't go to school the next day.

I would like to bring out the major researching kit called my laptop and show them how great math is. The second thing I'll do is tell them that most of what I just taught them is useless and I just wasted their time.3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do?

None.4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize?

The good old scientific calculator. I still use it, when I want to know the exact value for a certain real-life problem, and I use the probability sign to count my probability to get a PSP or win the lottery.5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today?

The great Roberto Contreras. Five reasons: When he taught, HE REALLY TAUGHT. He speaks good English, hence I understood him. He makes stupid jokes to keep us sane. He treats me like a little sister. HE IS SO DAMN SEXY.6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why?

My most favorite topic is, and forever will be, trigonometry, basic algebra and statistics. Why? Because I understand them and they seem really practical. I hate geometry because I never did understand the deal of polygons.7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Explain.

If it's just a power thing, I'd let Darkrai into the tournament. Starters in D/P have 580 stats, which is well above average. Darkrai has 600, which is high, but pales compared to, say, Mewtwo, who has a whopping 680. Darkrai is certainly very powerful, but not really wildly more so than many available pokemon. The legally obtainable Regigigas has 670 total stats. Of course, total stats aren't everything, but it's a good general guidline.

First Name:ChristopherCountry:USA1. Based on your past experiences, what do you remember most about math classes?The overhead. Boy, oh boy, that overhead held everything we needed regarding math. The math teacher's dream. In college, we didn't use it; but in all 4 years of my high school curriculum, that overhead had all the answers.2. What was your most favorite and least favorite elementary math experience? Explain why each.Elementary? Boy.. that's a stretch on my memory. I guess my best memory would be when we used the little yellow cubes to learn our multiplications and divisions. It was fun! My worst? All of eighth grade pre-Algebra. Okay, that was harsh.. the teacher wasn't exactly.. teaching.. plus my buddies made it hard for me to study.. but the work wasn't bad. It was just.. very boring and ugly.3. If you were to teach elementary math today, what two things would you like to do?Hm.. probably adding and subtracting big numbers. You know, carry the 1 and all that. If that doesn't count as 2 things, then the basics on fractions.4. What multiplication table was hardest for you to memorize?Well.. most of them are easy to me now, but I suppose the hardest for me would be 13. Okay, okay.. we never went over 12. So 12.5. Are there any math tools you learned that you use today?Dunno what you mean by this.. but I use basic algebraic skills in Magic all the time..6. Who was your favorite math teacher and why?Hm.. back in elementary it would have to be 2nd grade. But she was my teacher in everything and I loved her. In high school.. I didn't like any of them all that much; I guess my 9th grade Algebra 1 teacher, since she was nice and the class was relatively easy.7. What was your most favorite and least favorite topic/activity in math? Hmm.. most favorite would have to be multiplication. I guess it comes naturally to me. Better than addition. Worst would be geometry. Ick! I sucked at that class.
