    You could always try sitting in a different part of the car, like swapping with someone else for a seat. Sometimes when I stay in the same seat of the car, the bumps always hit my side of the car the worst, and I always swap for the other side of the car when that happens. Otherwise, I'd try finding some sort of cuhsion, but you've mentioned that, so...

    Just a quick question; does anyone know what are the best methods for AS Level revision?

    I saw your subjects on the Student Lounge thread
    Anything maths, do as many past papers as possible, just over and over, mark them yourself, and redo the ones you got wrong.
    For English, read up on Sparknotes all the key points and make notes. Maybe make a little quiz to test yourself?

    As for your humanities, I won't be able to help you, because I don't know what the exams are like... maybe just try to learn off by heart the facts you need to know, a few at a time? Make little question post-its and put them where you'll see them randomly to see if you can answer them spontaneously.

    And I have another question:

    In Japanese, how would you say "on the way here?" I'm pretty new to the language, and I didn't know if you could write ここのみちに or ここにみちに or if you'd just say something else entirely. Thanks for any help!

    Now I'm kinda wanting to start over with her, as friends. Then maybe become something more in the next few years? We're both about to go off to college, both 18 y/o seniors.

    I need some advice on how to approach this situation.

    I have a minor question for anyone who is particularly well versed in English/Grammar:

    What's the difference between Disorganized and Unorganized?

    l mean, they are two different words, but does one have a slightly different meaning than the other? Seems kind of redundant if they don't....

    I do believe that unorganized implies a state of consistency, and disorganized implies a catalyst. In other words, disorganized means something caused the lack of organization, but that's not necessarily the case for unorganized. Unorganized could have simply always been in that state.

    I'm a bit curious why you ask. I honestly can't think of an occasion where you wouldn't be able to use them interchangeably.

    I've seen them both used with referring to a person. "You are unorganized." and "You are disorganized." I think it has something to do the prefixes 'un' and "dis". Disorganized is usually used to refer to a person. While unorganized is usually used to describe something that wasn't organized in the first place. A state of "unorganization". Like a box of Legos or something.

    But you're just playing with the -ed and -tion suffixes that way. You could just as soon, and without any trouble say: "You are unorganized." And "The room is in a state of disorganization."

    True, true. I personally just stick to "unorganized." It really can fit in place of the other.

    Just for the record, disorganized should refer to more of a permanent state (i.e. describing a person), while unorganized is more temporary or prone to change (i.e. a room). But like so many other aspects of English, people have bastardized it so that you can use them interchangeably and no one will bat an eye, so realistically there isn't any distinction.

    No, Matt Damon is an idjit and can barely speak English.

    Can someone help me find Pokemon games in (Brazilian) Portuguese? I'm trying to learn the language, so I figured playing a game in that language could help a lot.

    There are no Pokemon games that are translated in that language. All Pokemon games released to Brazilians are in English for some reason.

    Is it worth buying Demon Soul before buying Dark Soul or should I just skip Demon Soul and go straight for Dark Soul?

    Also, in the film Avengers Assemble Iron Man references the "tale of jonah". Can someone please tell me what that is?

    Just an old fairy tale nonsense.

    Some rules are made with all intentions to break
    And she defends it with a warped rationale
    But I've seen what happened to the wicked and proud
    When they decided to take on the throne for the crown

    You're both wrong.

    You're really wrong.

    Your parents' cousins are your first cousins, once removed. Removed refers to generation differences. So, your grandparents' first cousins would be your first cousins, twice removed. First/second/third/etc. has to do with your most recent common ancestor (to keep it simple). You and your first cousins have the same grandparents, you and your second cousins share great-grandparents, etc. Of course, all of this goes out the window if you live in a trailer park.
