I wanna blow stuff up!
Wow, this is just too cool!  Go ahead and learn how to build your own Gauss Rifle.  Okay, so it isn’t what most people traditionally think of as a gauss rifle, but it’s still extremely cool.  Now I just have to go order some of …

I’m 17, huh?
We’ve all heard the phrase “act your age”.  Well, with this handy test you can figure out the opposite—what age you act!  It appears as though I’m a 17 year-old at heart.  Strangely, that explains quite a few things…
