    My last chance to take the GRE with enough time to include the results in grad applications is this coming Wednesday. I'll be taking it, but reviewing the practice exams for the GRE and the writing sample requirements and curricula of some of the programs I'm applying to... well, they ask for a level of originality in research, and a depth and sophistication of analytic ability, that I just don't yet have. I feel profoundly unready.

    I wouldn't worry about it too much, unless you are going straight for a PHD they aren't going to actually expect anything profound from you during your assignments research wise. You appear to easily have the analytic ability on par with most of my classmates so that might not be much of a problem either. (though I can't say for certain not knowing much about the field you will be studying)

    Good luck on the GRE, it isn't as bad as it seems from the practice tests.

    GRE is insanely easy. It's basically a common-sense test. I got 97th percentile without studying, so if you've been preparing even a little bit, you're set.

    Throw in one more for the GRE not being very difficult.

    Except the math portion, if you're me. But then the math portion is made up and the points don't matter anyway.

    Yeah I've heard it's insane and apparently super intense, people have said they get so invested in it and there's some crazy hard decisions to make.

    I think it deserves Game of the Year. It really makes you feel for the characters.

    Haven't played that yet, but I am so sick of the sheer glut of zombie media coming out lately that it's prematurely ruined for me.

    I'm excited to see what the fuss is about. I'll post thoughts.

    Ceno, I haven't heard much on Zombies much lately? Unless you mean in the past few years kind of thing.

    You know you're under someone's skin when they make a hate thread about you.

    More the "past few years" thing. I think it started around when The Zombie Survival Guide or Zombieland or possibly even the first iteration The Walking Dead came out. Yeah, it's been a few years, but there is just so much of it, it seems. I mean, how many times CAN you do ONE topic?

    Serious, legit, real talk time here, but LPers like him are the main reason I'm still afraid of doing YouTube LP stuff, since I don't want to turn into... that. (The other main reason, of course, being that I loathe the way my voice sounds.)

    Here, let's counterbalance that with an actually awesome LP. The game is probably a little tired, though.

    ^ Hundreds upon hundreds of times, apparently. Just with a few different variations in walking/running speed, decompsedness of said creatures, personality of survivors, etc.
    Add a few other small things and you've got yourself a zombie formula!

    Also, I used to watch 'Let's Play Pikman!' with a friend of mine over MSN. I don't remember who did it, and I've never played Pikman before, but it was just so... awesome... I don't' even remember if he even talked (I don't think he did) while doing the videos but it was just so great to watch.
    I didn't bother watching that full link. Guy seemed annoyingy talky.

    You're already in your hate thread, though. Constantly.

    You can discuss things in the other thread, just don't wine about the categories you were nominated for and stuff.
    Okay, fine, I'll beer about it instead. Maybe we can all get together and tequila about it. If we were in France in the late 19th century, I could suggest we absinthe about it.

    Oh no, it was boring to read. On the bright side, I think I got Elice Carol to hate me and probably the members of this site by extension.

    But this just shows how slow my weekend has been since I didn't go anywhere for Black Friday and I don't shop on Cyber Monday.

    I am having a hard imagining what a hate thread about you would contain. Or why someone would start it in the first place.

    If it involved Elice Carol...

    Well, um, why bother finishing that sentence, I guess.

    Also, short side note, but I sometimes keep looking at that obesity debate to see if anyone has posted a comment to the effects of "I see what you did there" about its title.
