When I was in high school, I convinced myself that I was better in some fields of learning than other students even though I was doing quite poorly in those subjects. My focus simply wasn’t in school. I believed my poor grades could be explained by my lack of interest in any class, and that at any of moment I could begin to apply a tiny ounce of effort and rise to the top of anyone of my classes. The entire class of students I could group into “try-hards” who cared too much about school and those who cared too little to even show up.
I might be the only one who thinks this, but how and by which power was the government allowed to completely shut down an entire city for an entire day over one person. People forced to stay inside their homes against their will. What happened to families who needed medicine or families that were separated? Continue reading
When I was a 4th grader in elementary school, I used the Microsoft Word auto-correct option and abused it. (“the” auto corrected to “you will die“).

1) You are a teacher. You probably didn’t grow up with a fancy calculator. (Hell, either did I. The TI-89 came out right as I hit college). Are people in the real world not allowed to use calculators I asked.
Teacher responds. “You have to be prepared to handle things and understand the concepts. The calculator is irreverent.”
This marks the 10th hour I’ve been stuck on the same apktool problem, at one computer sitting. Its now 11pm and I’ve been at this for a long time. The problem is simply some HTC Sense 4.0 APKs don’t like to be decompiled & recompiled. At first I thought there was a resource qualifier update. I’ve looked at all the DIFF reports from Android: (API 16) http://developer.android.com/sdk/api_diff/16/changes.html which shows the addition of
