I Have A Fever

Yep, as the title says, I have a fever. I started getting it yesterday (Tuesday) and I still have it today. Today also happened to be the day of one of my math tests, so that wasn’t cool either. At least I still managed to pull through and finish the test (Sort of).

Well, not a whole lot has happened recently that would be worth writing about, so this will probably be a very short post.

As for stuff that has happened recently that IS worth mentioning, Kyle, Jason and I (And Nicole for one of the maps) played Age of Empires. We played Monday night (Jason, Kyle and I) and we had a sad, painful death. I was a pocket player (Which means I was in-between both of them). At first, Kyle was getting hit, so I sent some guys his way to help out. Then Jason started getting hit really hard, so I switched to helping him out. Then Kyle started getting hit again, and then I started getting hit. After that, we all went down. slowly, but surely.

That next night, Kyle, Jason, Nicole and I played again. Same amount of enemies we did the night before. Nicole get hit early and the game and got her base completely wiped out (Nicole and Jason both held the flank positions, where Kyle and I were both pockets.). They then moved onto me, but I managed to hold out against them (There were two of them). Jason was getting hit pretty hard at the time, so Kyle sent some guys his way (He’d also sent some guys my way which helped me fight off all of the nights that hit me.), and I also sent some guys down to Jason. My guys ended up dying fairly fast, but Jason and Kyle eventually managed to push them out of Jason’s base. Nicole and I (Nicole had relocated behind me somewhat) also managed to hold out against the other two enemies as they kept coming. It take Nicole and I longer to start pushing out than it did for Kyle and Jason, but I managed to hold off two of the enemies fairly easily.

Well, for those of you who don’t play Age of Empires, this probably didn’t make any sense. Oh well.

More Disneyland

So I’m actually posting again. And I posted yesterday as well! I’m actually keeping up with the times. Of course, that’s because I’m awesome. Well, not a whole lot has changed since yesterday. I guess I could go more in-depth about other things I’ve already talked about however. Let’s talk more Disneyland.

Well, let’s talk about Midway Mania and the roller coaster, California Screamin.

Starting off about Midway Mania, yeah. That’s about everything I can think of to say about it. Well, aside from the never ending line-of-neverendingness. And all those sweaty bodies that never bathe. As well as the fact that, even though no one “Hey! The line budged!”.

Okay, so I didn’t even say anything about the ride itself, but that’s because I’ve never actually gotten on it. Oh no, I just wait there from 8 AM, till 11 PM, when the park closes. Just because I can’t get through the line before then. So instead, I just head over to the roller coaster, California Screamin.

California Screamin. This ride, unlike certain other ones, actually let you on the ride before you leave the park. But that’s only if you get the super rare get-in-the-park-early ticket which, as it’s name suggests, makes you sell them your brain to pay it off. But is it worth it! Of course. Because this is the “Happiest Place on Earth” so you will enjoy it. You can’t not enjoy it, because they have hidden security camera’s that will shock you if you are seen without a smile.

All that said, you may think that no one in their right mind would ever want to actually go there! But no one there cares, because they already lost their brain anyway (This may have an effect on why no one ever bathes.).

Well, I’ve personally never been shocked by those Disneyland cameras, so I can actually choose to not go back. But do I let that? No! I just march along with the rest of those sweaty bodies (Which by now have created enough sweat to raise the ocean level by a foot) and wait in those never ending lines. Why? Because I don’t have a brain to sell.

The Day After Yesterday

So I now have an Disneyland season pass. Am I prepared for another year of “once in a lifetime” memories? As well as those massive crowds that always come along with it (Those crowds come as part of the pass. If I upgraded to a premium pass, I’d actually be able to go on days even busier than normal!)?

Well, I guess the reason Disneyland is so busy is for the same reason I keep going there… Because of the crowds. I’m joking of course, but by the way those people keep going, I’d say they enjoy that stinky, sticky, messy crowds. At least the foreigners are stinky, sticky and messy. I’m pretty sure you could put those people in the “How long can you go without taking a shower?” contest and they’d be disqualified for smelling to bad.

Well that aside, it’s time to talk about other things that I’ve done since my last post.
Our family had two of our cousins over for about a week during the second to last week of March. They went to Disneyland with my parents and my younger siblings a couple times while they were here (The rest of us were still going to school/work.). Our entire family actually managed to make it to Disneyland one of those days, which was a surprise. I also managed to get 48 Streetpasses for my 3DS, which is incredibly high for me.

And now it is time to talk about the Boudin Bakery. That bread… To start it off, let’s just say that their bread is awesome. One of the main things I like to do (Aside from absorbing all manners of stench through my pores from the crowds.) is go on the Boudin Bakery Tour. I usually skip the “tour” part of it, but I do always get that sample of bread that they give. And then I go and buy a loaf if I have many on me, since my “Happiest Place on Earth” visit isn’t fulfilled until I do so.

I think I’ve typed enough for now, so I guess this is all for now.

Saint Patrick’s Day

So yesterday was Saint Patrick’s Day. I wasn’t wearing any green, but that was because I didn’t even know that it was Saint Patricks Day till a meat man came by letting us know he had flash frozen meats at half price for that day only. Sadly, we didn’t get anything. Although it probably would have been too expensive anyway. We had a very Saint Patrick’s Day meal with potatos and sausages in these things.

Anyway. Enough of Saint Patrick’s Day. Moving on to… uh… hmm. Let me think.
Aha! I have it. The secret to, oh never mind. I don’t really have anything interesting to say, so I’ll just cut this post short.

March 6th, A Day of …going to the Dentist?

So it’s here again. The twice a year event of going to the dentist to get my gums cut up by little evil sharp things.

Yes, I love going to the dentist… I love the little machines that penetrate your skull and send UV rays into your brain, killing you instantly. I also love the sharp metal gum-pokers that scrape around, under and even IN your teeth. And most of all, I love the waiting. No seriously! I’m not joking! You go to the dentist and wait. And wait. And wait. The whole time you’re getting UV rays piercing your skull. What’s not to like about it?

Oh yes, waiting around in a small waiting room waiting to get your teeth scraped on till there’s nothing left but gum is so enjoyable. Fortunately for me however, is I have a 3DS XL. Oh yes, I’ll teach those dentists that they can’t bother ME by making ME wait around in a small room for hours. Oh no, I will show them. Yes I will! I will… “Hey! their UV rays just blew my 3DS apart!”

So as you can see, going to the dentist is an extremely happy occasion. If I survive going, then I will be a happy man. Well, except for the fact that my brain will have melted from a UV overload.

I had my first Calculus 1 Exam Wednesday. I guess I did fine, although I won’t know till I get my test back.

On two of the problems, I took one look at them and was like, “I have NO idea how to solve this.”. Which wouldn’t have been quite so bad, but there were only 6 problems on the test. So if I missed two problems, then that’s a third of my grade. Fortunately, I managed to pull through I solved both (Although I still messed them up and got the wrong answers for both.).

Another Update

Once again, it has been quite awhile since my last post. Over 3 months to be exact, if I did my math correctly. Speaking of which, I have a Calculus Exam tomorrow. I should do fine considering everything my professor has gone over, I’ve understood for the most part.

Even though he didn’t do any sort of review yesterday, it shouldn’t be that bad. Just because he doesn’t care about the answer. He wants us to show our work, so he can tell if we know how to do the problems or not. And because I think I should know how to do most everything, I should be fine.

On another note, I just got a 1.9 pound bag of Sour Patch. Good stuff. And I have to go to the dentist on Friday, even better! The dentist isn’t actually that bad. But despite trying to attack your gums like they attack their own weeds, they are actually very scary.

I would post what I’ve been doing here, but it would either bore people out of their minds, or else they would be bored out of their minds. So I won’t bother bringing down any of what I’ve been doing to anyone who might have had the unfortunate event of accidentally reading this.

My life is boring to your average person, so I won’t be posting anything else for now.

Update – The Weekend

Well, my weekend was slightly busier than normal. Saturday, I went to do the yard-work and help Lizzie with the inside cleaning.
After that, Jason came by to pick us up and then we went to the bank so he could deposit a check (And I pulled out some cash to pay Lizzie and Justin with). We then went to Souplantation since we had a coupon. Jason was nice and paid for Lizzie and I.
We also stopped at Walmart to see if they had the Super Smash Bros U bundle (Which comes with the game, a Gamecube controller adapter, and a Gamecube controller). They had the game, but they didn’t have any bundles. So we didn’t get anything there.
After getting home, I did some math homework and loafed around discussing stuff. After the others had had supper (I skipped it since I wasn’t hungry) and we were done with cleanup, Jason went ahead and went back to Walmart to get Super Smash Bros U while I fixed myself some food. Once he got back, we ate some stuff and played Super Smash with Sarah and Victoria.

On Sunday, I went to church. After we got back from there, Jason and I made some plans for making target stands for his steel targets he got/was getting. After making a list of stuff we needed, we went to Lowes to pick up the stuff. We got some L-brackets, a two-by-four, and 3 other boards (I don’t remember their measurements). We picked up some screws and 4 rebars. We will be making the stands soon. So until then, you’ll just have to hold your horses.

Well, this was probably one of the most boring things you’ve read, and while I would agree wholeheartedly, I didn’t read it myself. I just typed it. So this concludes my weather report over the weekend.

Update – Months Later

It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted here on my website. And nobody is going to even see this post while my site isn’t working. But either way, I’m posting an update on my life. Last time I posted, I’m not exactly sure what was going on in my life, but I do know I wasn’t attending college at the time.
Since all of you are dying to here about my college life, I’ll tell you about it. First of all, you didn’t actually want to here about my actual college life, but rather my grades. But Before that, I must tell you about the two classes I’m taking.
First, I’m taking Chorale, which is the college’s non-elite choir. I’m taking along with my sisters Victoria, Sarah, and Joanna. I’m also taking pre-calculus.
My grade for the pre-calculus class is determined 100% on the exams. There are five exams total. My best is worth 25%, my worst is 15%, and the other three are all 20%. We’ve done four of the five exams so far. On my first exam, I got an 86 out of 100. Then I cleaned up my act and got a 103 out of 100 on my next one. On my third exam, having taken a liking to the number 103, I decided to get another 103 out of 100. I haven’t gotten my fourth exam back yet, but I’m feeling the most confident about this one out of all of the ones I’ve done so far. Assuming I did all of my proofs correct, I should get over 103 out of 100.

This concludes my update. I probably should mention that I’ve preformed twice with the choir, so I’ll mention it. I’ve preformed twice with the choir that I’m in. It was fun. The end.

You may end-up seeing new posts on a more regular basis, maybe. But don’t get your hopes up.

Lyon Air Museum

So yesterday I went to the Lyon Air Museum along with My dad, mom, Justin, Nicole, Victoria, Elizabeth, and Josiah. The museum is located on the other side of the runway at John Wayne Airport. So it’s actually pretty close to our house.

Going to the museum was something some of people in our family had wanted to do in the past, but we’d never actually gotten around to doing it. The reason we actually went this time was because we found a good deal on tickets, and because the Collings Foundation was there.

The Collings Foundation is a, um, something where people apparently donated to them and they restored some classic airplanes. Or something like that. Anyway, they go around with their different airplanes (They have 21 airplanes in flying condition, I think) and fly them at different airports or something. Among those 21 airplanes, they had 4 of them at the Museum. They had a B24, B25, P51C (Which is a two seater P51), and a B17. All of which would give rides if you paid about $400. Or, if you wanted to do the P51, it was $2200 for a 30 minute flight and $3200 for a 1 hour flight. Of course, you actually get to control the airplane yourself, so that’s definitely really cool.

Anyway, not only did they fly, but in between flights, they let us poor folk get in the airplanes. So I actually got to get inside a B17 and a B24. I even handled the Browning M2 machine guns, which weren’t fire able though… D: That aside, we also saw the “Fuddy Duddy” which is the B17 the Dwight D. Eisenhower flew in. Yes, there were two B17s there yesterday. And both of them were in flying condition too. There are only 13 B17s left in the world that are still in flying condition, and two of them were there yesterday.

We also got to see some other airplanes (That were also in flying condition, but were being displayed) such as the A-26. We also saw a C-47, which was a transport plane. There were also some other airplanes that I either can’t remember what they were called, or aren’t worth mentioning compared to the others. 😀

They had some vehicles as well. One of which was Hitler’s personal armored car that he would ride around in. The car itself weighed about 11,000 pounds. They had some other fancy cars there too. General Lyon actually has a collection of over 130 cars or vehicles or whatever.

They also had a Norden bombsight, which was a tachometric bombsight used by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) and the United States Navy during World War II, and the United States Air Force in the Korean and the Vietnam Wars to aid the crew of bomber aircraft in dropping bombs accurately. Key to the operation of the Norden were two features; an analog computer that constantly calculated the bomb’s trajectory based on current flight conditions, and a linkage to the bomber’s autopilot that let it react quickly and accurately to changes in the wind or other effects.

Together, these features allowed for unprecedented accuracy in day bombing from high altitudes; in testing the Norden demonstrated a circular error probable (CEP) of 23 metres (75 ft), an astonishing performance for the era. This accuracy allowed direct attacks on ships, factories, and other point targets. Both the Navy and the AAF saw this as a means to achieve war aims through high-altitude bombing, without resorting to area bombing, as proposed by European forces. To achieve these aims, the Norden was granted the utmost secrecy well into the war, and was part of a then-unprecedented production effort on the same scale as the Manhattan Project. Carl L. Norden, Inc. ranked 46th among United States corporations in the value of World War II military production contracts.[1]

In practice it was not possible to achieve this level of accuracy in combat conditions, with the average CEP in 1943 being 370 metres (1,200 ft). Both the Navy and Air Forces had to give up on the idea of pinpoint attacks during the war. The Navy turned to dive bombing and skip bombing to attack ships, while the Air Forces developed the lead bomber concept to improve accuracy. Nevertheless, the Norden’s reputation as a pin-point device lived on, due in no small part to Norden’s own advertising of the device after secrecy was reduced during the war.

The Norden saw some use in the post-World War II era, especially during the Korean War. Post-war uses were greatly reduced due to the introduction of radar-based systems, but the need for accurate daytime attacks kept it in service for some time. The last combat use of the Norden was in the US Navy’s VO-67 squadron, which used them to drop sensors onto the Ho Chi Minh Trail as late as 1967. The Norden remains one of the best known bombsights of all time.

I totally didn’t just copy that from the Wikipedia or anything. 😛

Anyway. That concludes my report on the Lyon Air Museum. Other than the fact that I was sick and my nose was plugged and I had a massive headache. It was still really cool though.

My Everyday Life

Yes, I’m actually making a new post for the first time in awhile. I logged into my account here and found I had 500 some pending comments. I realized that they had stopped sending me an email letting me know I got a comment apparently, because I would have gotten 500 some emails if they hadn’t.

Hmm. Josaih just called me Justin. Yes that’s part of my everyday life. listening to Josiah call Jason; dad, or call Nicole; Justin, and things like that. He has a bad case of whatever it is that he has a bad case of, because he has a chronic problem calling people a different name, even if he’s staring them IN THE FACE! I mean, how hard is it to differentiate between Nicole and Justin when you’re looking them in the face?
I know I wouldn’t do that. After all, my recognition skills are unparalleled. Just to give you all lowly folks an idea of how good my recognition skills are, I can recognize my ugly face whenever I see it in the mirror. That’s just how good my skills are.

Yep, my head is swelling up just thinking about how good my skills are. And that’s just one of my unparalleled skills. Another being my Poop Identification Skills (e.g. Yep, it’s poop). Let’s not even mention my awesome -easy to get along with – personality (We’ll get along great as long as you keep telling me how awesome I am).

Well, so much for telling you about my everyday life. I guess I’ll leave that for next year’s post (Which by then, my daily life will most likely be very much more differenter)

Horrible spellers of the World, Untie!
