    No, because spoilers.

    @Yodaboyaz Yes. I'm intrigued. What were your thoughts? Without spoilers for @beepbop1011.

    I found an awesome website! compoundchem.com
    It combines infographics and chemistry!
    (A friend bet me i could not drink a double espresso in 5 minutes today and then she had to deal with the consequences - in the form of a very fast and incoherent explanation as to why haemocyanin is the best molecule. It is.)
    But you should look at it. Is awesome.

    Friendly Neighborhood Doc Student, unlurking... I am recruiting one last cohort for interviews:

    Hi! I am a graduate student studying how teen Nerdfighters gather information online. If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, would be interested in participating in a study? The study would begin with an interview (about an hour long). Next you would complete on online diary (for one month) about how you use the Nerdfighter community. Finally, we would do one more interview (again about an hour). In thanks for your participation, you would receive a small gift card at the end of the study. Thanks and DFTBA!

    Questions? Email me at awaugh@umd.edu or check the study website: http://amanda2315.wix.com/teensandinfo. You may also contact my advisor, Dr. Mega Subramaniam at mmsubram@umd.edu.

    Of course. No spoilers. Well, what constitutes a spoiler? Things in the trailer? Things outside the trailer? Theories?
    @Rey
    Greetings, and welcome to our little nook of Our Pants! You are interested in chemistry? Cool! I'm currently taking a chemistry class.

    Also, I just got back from Canada and taking a couple of college tours, I am both excited and terrified.

    @Yodaboyaz Things in the trailer, I guess. But now @beepbop1011 has seen it, so it doesn't matter. XD

    @Rey I think you're going to fit in really well here. :smiley:

    @SkyDoctor That sounds amazing! Tell us more!

    We went to look at two universities, Mcgill and Concordia, Mcgill seems nice with exceptional security and quidditch team but it's more expensive and it would appear to be more of a party place. Concordia, on the other hand, has much smaller classs sizes (25-5) and free vegan lunches fall and winter. Either way, I am going to get a year or two's worth of credits behind me at the community college first.

    Is anyone going to be visiting colleges in the northeast? I've only been around there for college visits so far.

    Also (for any other juniors) are you apprehensive about being a senior? In my school, the seniors leave a month before the rest of the school's classes end, so in a week I will be the oldest grade in the school and I'm not really ready for that.

    To all the people looking at colleges, come to UNF! It's awesome! And Florida is warmer than up north.

    Alright. What is your opinion on Grey Jedi possibly coming into Canon?
    @SkyDoctor
    Cool! You're vegan?

    @Yodaboyaz I'm reserving the right to make an opinion after I see what they do with it. XD Have you read any of the Star Wars books? (Have I asked you that already?)

    Assuming that the books in his profile picture are his, yes. I think he has also mentioned them before.

    @Yodaboyaz No I'm not vegan, but I do try to eat less meat and just generally healthier food.

    @beepbop1011 Hahaha! I feel like such an idiot. I never checked to see what books they were. XD

    @beepbop1011
    Heh. Yep, those are mine.
    @MontannaPeach
    That's fine. And yes, I have read many EU and new canon books.
    @SkyDoctor
    Alright. I am vegan, so that's cool to hear that there is another vegetarian-ish.
    "I don't know." What a liberating phrase.
  • MontannaPeachMontannaPeach Posts: 1,745 ✭✭✭
    @Yodaboyaz Cool! I love the EU books. I haven't read any of the new canon ones. I love the story line with Luke and Mara Jade.

  • sackclothandaisiessackclothandaisies What does this do? texasPosts: 406 ✭✭✭
    @allyoustarwarsnerds I am going to be honest on my lack of Star Wars information
    I am also not vegan or vegetarian and have no idea where I want to study. sooo I have nothing to add to this conversation.
    i did cut all my hair off though if anyone is interested.

    I haven't read many of those, but Mara Jade is really cool. Some relatives of mine named their daughter Mara Jade. They were huge Star Wars nerds.
    @sackclothandaisies
    That's fine. You look really good!
    @beepbop1011
    Oh cool. Avoiding meat is a thing we do!

  • MontannaPeachMontannaPeach Posts: 1,745 ✭✭✭
    @Yodaboyaz That's hilarious and amazing.

    @sackclothandaisies Nice haircut! I've missed you on here!

    It is. The girl goes by M.J., but Mara Jade is her legal name.
    @sackclothandaisies
    That's understandable. I like it too.

    I got a different haircut right before school and I was super worried and then nobody even noticed XD.
