    Greece/Italy To go to all the places famous battles were and to see Rome, Sparta, Pompeii, Herculaneum My fascination for these places began when I was a little asian kid flipping through Greek mythology books and books about the eruption of Vesuvius. In primary we sometimes had really short...

    Oscar Pistorius (Blade Runner) - Discussion

    good one haha I'm not surprised he was found guilty But I was secretly hoping he'd be found not guilty just so he + court of law would get so much backlash. Would be so interesting to read all the reasons why the verdict was "unfair" (though there's plenty for the manslaughter already :P)

    anyone went from bad in year 11 to good in year 12

Maths) to get a...
