    Who wrote "This is Sparta" on their IB exams?

    Did anyone write "This is Sparta!" and "Why so serious?" in their IB tests with the one line strike through? Any one else do anything creative such as writing "IB examiners rock!" So far I've only remembers to use it twice. The first time was in mention of Hitler's third reich. <s>(This is sparta)</s> I can't remember how I exactly used "Why so serious?" but it was also when I was talking about Hitler.

    2012... Ominous or not?

    What even happened with the Y2K issue? I was too young to really pay attention to it. Wasn't it that all systems reliant on computers would crash because the computers weren't wired to roll over to 2000? Or was it that there was going to be an alien takeover? Rebirth of christ? Asteroid hitting the earth? I felt like I've heard all of those. And what is it that is making 2012 more plausible than all the other Armageddon predictions that have already come and gone?
  11. Ok then, if that is how you view it then lets go and try to stop all the infertile, sterile, and old people from marrying.

    Intelligent TV Shows?

    Why has no one mentioned Fringe??? Fringe is awesome because it goes into a lot of experimental science and has that sci-fi abnormal mystery quality. Plus it is by the same guy who does Lost but unlike Lost you can follow the plot even if you haven't watched every other episode leading up to wherever you start.

    Group 4 Project

    How much work does your school usually sent to be evaluated by IB for your group 4 projects? Last year the groups had to write huge lab reports for all the science sections, present the project in a presentation, and then send a picture of the visual. This year instead of presenting our projects we are presenting them in a "science fair" event where everyone just has their visual set up and the teachers can come by and ask questions. No write up is required, and the only thing sent to IB is the picture of the visual. I'm not really getting why they would send lab reports before but not this year. Is the only thing IB needs is a visual and an evaluation of "personal skills"? Because if that is the case then it doesn't sound like we really need to have complex experiments as long as we are getting along? How do other schools run their group fours?
