Geography Exam

Well, I just had my geography exam. And damn, it was hard~ish. It was definately harder than any other test I've had so far. I have first-hand confirmation:

Tom B: How was your test?

Tom L: Hard

Tom B: What? It was easy!

Tom L: You did the retard paper.

Tom B: ...

Tom L: I'll put it this way. Remember the first business test we had.

Tom B: Yea

Tom L: It was ten times harder than that.

Tom B: Oh damn...

There you have it. If you still aren't convinced about the sheer difficulty of this test, I will show you a ONE MARK question. That's right a question for ONE MARK. Should be a piece of cake (or pie, whatever floats your boat), right?

Explain why gentrification can be a problem for people living in the Inner City area.

I put some random sh*t about mouldy pipes and the water will be contaminated etc. Just because it sounded like eutrophication. Which is something about water too...

Bentley (you may remember him from: 'SHAZ!'), put something about not having jobs etc.

Turns out it means this: 'Gentrification, or urban gentrification, is a phenomenon in which low-cost, physically deteriorated neighborhoods undergo physical renovation and an increase in property values, along with an influx of wealthier residents who may displace the prior residents.'

Damn, we both got it wrong. I was a little close, they might change the... mouldy pipes or something...

I also found this interesting interview... with Bill Gates...

Bill Gates talks to Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg from All Things Digital concerning the future of gaming…

Bill: So 3D is a way of organizing things, particularly as we’re getting much more media information on the computer, a lot more choices, a lot more navigation than we’ve ever had before. And we can take that into this communications world where the PC is playing a much more central role, kind of taking over what was the PBX, sort of one of the last mainframes in the business environment. That will be a big change that will come to it. And as we get natural input, that will cause a change. … Software is doing vision and so, you know, imagine a game machine where you’re just going to pick up the bat and swing it or the tennis racket and swing it.

: We have one of those.

: Yeah. Wii.

Bill: No, that’s not it. You can’t pick up your tennis racket. And swing it. You can’t sit there with your friends and do those natural things. That’s a 3D positional device. This is video recognition.

He's obviously talking about the Wii. Seems like MS are going to bring something similar to the Wii out.

There's probably going to be another post or an edit of this post today. As I have the maths exam next. Damn, two full hours of maths. Yippee. Not.

Damn you, compulsory education and all your infidels! Hehe... infidels. Always wanted to put that in a post.

Because Gavin wanted to see a picture of Gimely:
He had a bad day at this point. Don't ask.
