I snorted a line of sherbert once props? :lol:

I started a small fire in the science room accidently while attempting to bend light in weird ways we didin't get caught, we laugh about it now because it was wax paper and we didn't know how easy it was going to catch alight.

well we have two segments in our class room a class room and a workshop/supplies room we were the only people in the workshop (mind you they are next to eachother) and we put it out quickly, luckily, so there was only the smell to get rid of which was done with permanent marker!:owned:

ok with the cooking show off thing i kinda fudged it in these details.

I burnt my syrup completely so i had to make another dessert in like 5 mins.
The curry powder was incorrectly labelled so it was infact hot curry powder and my mild chilli sauce did not mellow this out at all.
instead of bring grated mango i accidently brought mango spears:wall: . and after all this i still came second. :owned:

As one Great Greek Philosopher pointed out once "All I know is that I know nothing"

Actually he didn't point it out at all, although he is reported by Plato to have said some vaguely similar things.

The quote is often attributed to Socrates but is apocryphal; see here (http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/08-06-25.html).

The quote is often attributed to Socrates but is apocryphal; see here (http://www.skeptic.com/eskeptic/08-06-25.html).

The source of this misquote is Plato’s dialogue the Apology,I don't know why the Diogenes book is left out of this. (Maybe the Diogenes source is the Apology, but I don't know where to find Diogenes' sources.)
He used also to say that the daemon foretold the future to him; and that to begin well was not a trifling thing, but yet not far from a trifling thing; and that he knew nothing, except the fact of his ignorance. Another saying of his was, that those who bought things out of season, at an extravagant price, expected never to live till the proper season for them.This isn't in the explicit paradoxical form, but it is pretty close to the misquote. But note that Diogenes did live a few hundred years after Socrates did.

The Sakezles article quotes the following, but does not address the bolded part.

Socrates’ final conclusion after years of such examination is this: “I am wiser than this man: neither of us knows anything that is really worth knowing, but he thinks that he has knowledge when he has not, while I, having no knowledge, do not think that I have. I seem, at any rate, to be a little wiser than he is on this point: I do not think that I know what I do not know” (21d7).This isn't in the form of the "all that I know" quote, but it does get him saying in rather explicit form that he knows nothing. Sakezles would probably say that this is covered by the fact that Socrates is using "knowledge" in a specific (i.e. of the artisan type knowledge) but not general sense.

As an aside the following is a bit odd.

The meaningful knowledge that Socrates seeks, but never finds, is the real definitions of ethical concepts such as courage, piety, moderation, and justice. As it turns out (at least as we can interpret from Plato’s development), he cannot find them because he is looking in the wrong place — the true answers are to be found in the realm of “forms,” which his student Plato discovers. And with that discovery, the philosophical tone of Plato’s dialogues shift from skeptical to dogmatic.Socrates the historical figure is supposed to have been quite well represented in the Apology, and the forms is supposed to be Plato's thing. That is to say, the Apology is as Socrates as you get, and the forms as Plato as you get.

I quite often loosely follow recipes but I always follow it perfectly the first time then make adaptions the next because everybodies tastes are different a recipe will rarely cater to ones preferences where if you add and take away bits and bops you get something suited to you.

Seeing as I am on a roll! My school got a phone call and we recently had a neuroscience challenge where we were assigned booklets which covered the general workings of the brain which was followed ,after some study, a test. We had a seven strong team and out of the top seven scores in Australia four of them were on our team! Not to mention on average our entire team scoring double the national average. The reason I'm really hyped about this one is because as a team we put in hours and hours of work into it and it finally worked out YAY!

the atari 2600 first came out in 2002 and was big in the latter part of 2003. river raid was a big breakout title for this particular platform and quite fondly remembered.

the commodore was quite popular in 2002 but by 2003 was a little dated.

the vic20 was another very popular computer in the 2000's along with the amiga 500. :cool:

Or just ask the makers if you can "modify" their product to run on the atari 2600.
