OK. This drives me crazy. If someone gets a A and attends only 20% of the classes, doesn’t that make the A even BETTER than the others who attended 100% of the time???????????????

Particularly in BIOLOGY?!?!?!

Teachers don’t realize what kind of contempt this breeds in students.

I do want YOUR translation though. I found one on the internet. If I get my hands on you. Noosa = wow in that translation.

The other thing is that it’s pego, but sometimes I think I hear an r sound in there. Like pergo
I know that is why I asked. Because I really love the video, and I think he is adorable there. But some people will hate. Lets not put it there and save all the fun for us.

BTW, YOU WISH it was your video, you would have been in Spain and that close to him.

Nossa translated means ours, but brazillians (just them), use like "wow" too.

Wow, wow, this way you're going to kill me,
Of if I get my hand you, oh, oh if I get my hands on you.

Delicious (or hottie) this way you're going to kill me.
Oh if I get my hands on you...~


It's SOOOO cheesy, but it's wild really, it got so famous. And it's brings everyone together when you're out at night and they play it somewhere! Because everyone starts singing and dancing. (Yes, me too )

Oh! The B is for overall grade. And the A is only the final which makes up part of the overall grade. He missed lots of lab works because he missed the classes which, as a result, pulled down his grade. And when even he was in class, lots of time he didn't understand what the requirement was. He never asked his teacher in class when he did not understand because 1) his autistic nature and 2) really sucks experience with some ex-teachers who should never be teachers.

Re: The new (and improved) Djokoforum chat thread! Part 2

I was really frustrated over the years that I know he is a very smart kid and if he put half a heart into shcool works, he can easily make straight As in any subject. The tough part is he needs a good teacher to make learning interesting for him. Now I finally comes to term that that is who he is. And the current way of education and the way children is measured will result in him failing.

oh no not hubby Nate looks great btw- skin is totally clear, I think he grew a bit taller and he shaved off the full beard/sideburns before he came. Not for me mind you but because he read that he would have an easier tiime going through airport security

He went to visit his old boss where he tutored at Kuman with Sam and she offered Sam a job doing what Nate did!

I am sure of it! There is always something for everyone!
BTW question about going from Hong Kong to Canada and now the States. One of Nate's girl chums on his floor did the same thing. She seemed to say it was easier to emigrate to Canada first. True or False?

BTW he loves Dorm life but hates the bathrooms

True! Canada and Australia. These countries still remember most of them are immigrants themselves.
