[quoteost_uid0="Zeke"][color=#000000ost_uid0]Forgive me if this sounds weird, but I'm proud of you. [/colorost_uid0][/quoteost_uid0]
[color=#000000ost_uid0]Oh great. Now I really see you as someone at least half a generation older than me.

Which doesn't change the fact that I'm proud of me too. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Cool, a Math Olympiade. I like mathamatics. I participated in the 'Kangoeroe wedstrijd' the last three years in high school, and belonged to the top 5%. I got a T-shirt. You can't participate in 6 VWO, though.

Anyway, good job![/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Ah yes. I got one of those T-shirts too. I think I was second of my school.

I didn't know you could participate in it in the 4th and 5th, though.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Derek, that just sounds.... disturbing.

I can sympathize. In the last genetics test that I had, the class average for the two questions set by my crazy prof (Norbert Lehming, I'm sure he's been mentioned here before) were 4.4 and 3.3 respectively. Out of 20. And there are plenty of brilliant people in my class.
