Lilard. Lol, must burn. When your franchise is in the hands of Dwight Howard (least dominant "dominant" man in the league, Jeremy "I can't ever not turn the ball over" Lin and James Floppin you know you got troubles. No one pegged the Raptors for anything, you got a team of big potential but ultimately failure players.

Well, at least the Falcons should be good this year if everyone stays alive this time.

Not really. Rockets play in the West, a much more competitive division. Every first round series was basically a conference finals matchup. Toronto lost in the East. Lowry got abused by a 400 year old paul pierce lol

Yeah, we lost against a team with a payroll of 160mil that were built solely to win titles. And no one expected shit from us because this was supposed to be a tanking year. Raps did well above expectations.

Used an Xbone controller for the first time today, bleurgh. How did they mess up a near perfect design?

I definitely prefer the PS4 controller, but I do like the softer triggers (rumble needs some getting used to) and the thumbsticks. The thumbsticks now have a surrounding texture to help with slipping... Those 4 nubs used to wear down fast on the 360 controllers.

Lol really. Everyone knows the West is better than the east but its laughable to call every series in that conference a finals match up. Its also even more laughable that you think the Rockets ever had a shot at anything, stop kidding yourself man. James Floppin and Dwight Howard were never gonna win anything. Toronto was never expected to do anything and they came out and competed. They were up against a 190 million payroll, dunno what you're expecting since as a toronto fan I certainly wasn't. They however have a bright future being a young team. Houston . . . lol man, Lillard daggered you in 6 games. Not that you you were gonna win game 7 anyway.

I never wore them down, all of my friends did though so I guess I have magic thumbs. The sticks feel OK as do the triggers, but those RB and LB buttons are absolutely disgusting though, so, so, so bad. It felt less ergonomic too, a bit bulky and like it wasn't as perfect a fit in the hands are the 360 controller.

Well according to you the Rockets weren't expected to win anything either and came out and competed against a better team than the craptors played.

Dunno if I would call that series any good but that's just me. But the Rockets did not play good basketball at all and they got daggered by Lillard on what should have been a game 7 if they were worth a damn (which they're not). Raptors were suppose to be in the rebuilding phase and they came out and surprised everyone. That's the difference here. On top of the fact that they are only going to see improvements if this is how they play in a rebuilding year. Houston has no hope at their best and should refund fan money at their worst.

I did, on all of the ones I owned :P

I do feel like my hands are a little too compact on the controller. With the PS4 controller, it seems to have a little more to the outer edges, which fills my palms better.

Uuuh! Who?

I can't remember what username I mainly referred to him as (he had so many damn accounts, it's not funny), but about he always ragged on about how "games were hardcore" back in the day and insulted casuals to no end. Lundy dealt with him a bit too.

That is the best picture I've ever seen lol, so ture.

Yup, dunno how it happened. They do a lot of cooked food as well, so it's slightly less embarassing lol.

All of a sudden feel like going to med school so I took a practice MCAT. Got a 33.

Not bad. Haven't studied at all yet lol, so half the time I had to remember things just based off of the key words in the question, not really by actually knowing it. I guess it helps that the Physical Science questions weren't the bad ones. That's probably what is going to kill me the most come real test day.

I mean... it's not like Gen Chem and Basic Physics is really hard its just something that could really suck being piled onto OChem and Molecular Biology. -_-

Nicce. After a quick Google, Princeton states that most schools look for around a 30 MCAT score (45 being the highest).

That's a lot of work, but a lot of payoff at the end.

It feels nice to get above the accepted range without too much effort haha. Not going to brag though since 33 is still not good enough for top tier.

One thing I've noticed after taking it though is that my physical sciences are pretty weak. :/ That's probably what dropped my score the most so its something to look into.

Actually I lied about not studying yet. Since that week after taking the exam, I found a ton of helpful overviews of stuff and have already looked at some great info on the categories. It's all review but its amazing how much you retain or figure things out at a much quicker pace when you are more experienced at that book learning (and after graduation and all that lol). :P

Still, it'll be different once you fully prepare, rather than taking a practice test.

Where do you want to attend?

No clue haha.

Compared to most premed students, I have done very little to solidify myself in this (aside from volunteering and grades I guess, but volunteering was for fun) nor have I found out about the schools. I'm honestly just doing this because I can, and it's no skin off my back if I somehow fail to get in. I don't have monetary issues so all in all it's a fun venture. If an application interview does comes up for whatever school I'll have to come up with a better answer than that though.

Man... when I read what I said above it makes me feel kind of weird, but its the truth.

Nothing wrong with that. It's a good thing to pursue, as there are many great careers, along with potential gratification. Personally, I visit a specialist who has to earn $200,000 a year, easily :P

Definitely better than my previous job as a lab tech in my uni. Only pays like $12 or so bucks an hour and is part time haha. I'm hoping to find something in the big or small business sector that's full time for now.

I guess that is a big reason to go to med school. I feel worthy of a higher pay grade tbh. I'm not going to delude myself with entitlement issues, but I definitely feel I am better than $12 bucks an hour. :P
