Never really took a diag. Studied LG's for a week cuz I thought they were cool, and I also sorta "mastered" them. Did June 2007 as a diag and only got -3 on games, so tough to say. Got a 159 on the test though, so the rest i done fucked up.

Ah I see. I lived in Berlin for a couple of years, when I was a little more #yolo, but that's a while ago. I still pretend to speak German very well.

There's something especially entertaining about kids saying "fuck"

If you swap the kid in this video out for an adult, nobody cares. But the video with the kid gets almost 4 million views.

My greatest fear is when my son says fuck because of me and the verbal lashing I'll get after I drop him back off at his moms house.

I know what you mean. My niece started Kindergarten last week and has already been sent home with a note for saying fuck in class. Her mother of course called to chew me out because the little one said she heard me say it but I could distinctly hear my brother (the father) laughing his ass off in the background. I was framed I tell ya!

I'm going to post this again as I think it was overlooked the first time and I would really appreciate a few suggestions.
Pls respond to this (credit to flash for this one)

My biggest weakness seems to be timing in the RC section, as I usually go -8/-10, and NEVER get to the questions for the last passage. I spend an average of 4 minutes reading a passage (too long) and roughly twice as long answering the questions for each passage (waaaay too long). Of the questions I do have adequate time to answer, I miss 1 for the section on average. I think I just need to speed the hell up.

What are some specific tactics that y'all use to keep things moving during RC?

edit: 5000th post! 8)
