I was only here for you and when you had gone, I didn't know what to do with myself.

I have no existence apart from this forum, obviously. My power is waning....

And high school physics students looking for us to do their assignments! I'm bored enough to play along for a little while...

Ha ha, the thread made me chuckle.

And, I am still looking for research opportunities.

If any one knows of any schools in North East or in Florida looking for volunteers in planetary astronomy, then let me know.

Apparently I've got doom in my rear view mirror and will attend Washington State. Their website says I'm in; as soon as I get official word I'll accept whatever deal they can come up with.

Pullman, Washington has a population a little less than 25,000. Here's a look at the town, with the farming country:

Haha, they seriously do that? Sometimes, I wished I had the imagination to do that when I was in grade school. :p

And surprisingly, it might have even worked for both sides (since the other side wants GRE prep, after all)
