    I think that kids at that kind of age are at a critical position all they need is some encouragement and they will begin see the world within their own eyes either as a mathematician or a biologist etc. Teachers are simply their to find the key to their hidden knowlege
    Fair enough I guess. Just that you did a maths degree, instead of say a teaching degree. That being said, if you decide not to teach sometime in the future, your maths degree is far more transferable than a teaching degree (NOt that teaching degrees aren't transferable, but just considerably less so than a maths degree)

    Kinda I guess. Like if you take the wrong thing down, we'd have the French and the Germans shouting at us (again)



    Tbf, I think it does need a bit of cleaning up now as well. Not much but does need some tidying up




    Because it'd be a tad creepy if I were to randomly take a pic of her I haven't even taken a pic of my friend that lives with me




    Yup. He was born there as well. Though sometimes I think his mindset is stuck in Peshawar


    If I were to work here in the future, I wouldn't live here that's for sure. That being said, the Co-Op has elephant atta, and in the entire town, I think there'd probably be about three people who'd buy it (Two when you consider that we don't use elephant atta at home), and it's not your little packs, that English people might get to make roti's as a one off, but it's the big 10Kg packs. Who the hell is going to buy it?

    That being said, the gym is pretty cheap (If you're a student) and when I got my car serviced yesterday, I dropped it off at 8am and walked up to work (half an hour) It were ready for lunch, and I finish at half 5. They close at 5. They offered to pick me up, and they said when I needed my MOT doing, or when I come back for them to do a test on my engine (the light was on),then I could park the car at 8:15, and they'd get me to work for 8:30 (They'd be driving my own car, but still)

    So that's not bad I guess
    French AND Germans :eek: that's worse than a boom LOL

    tidying up? You should totally see my room lol there's hardly any place to sit haha

    She doesn't have to know duh just take a cheeky pic when she's looking away lol in only interested in the gori FYI lol

    lool whys that? Oh and does he speak pushto?

    Sorry,should have been the French and the Italians. The people in finance couldn't access a certain application because something was decommissioned by our team, and then we had emails saying "Major impact" etc... because it was a global thing

    Well turns out I dont really need to tidy at all (except a vacuum clean) in my room, but it was just that I spread my clothes out before ironing, and watching 4oD at the same time because otherwise it gets pretty boring lol

    Any way now that the clothes have been ironed, my bedroom seems pretty clean. A little cluttered, but pretty clean

    And well a lot comes down to him not being able to consider a different POV to things ie: his view is the correct one. ie: We were in Asda, and we talked about halal/haram food etc... and it got on to seafood, and I was like "Yeah it's halal/haram depending on what school of thought you follow" and he was like "What is that bs. What the hell is that?" And I said I dunno, and I said well what's the reasoning we can't eat pigs then? And he said they're dirty etc.... (They're actually pretty clean compared to..... chickens)

    That's something trivial that sticks in my mind. Oh and what annoyed me was when someone in his family got married in Pakistan, and I asked him was it arranged? And he said "Yeah course it is" Me being me, I said "Well it's not exactly obvious" And he asked if I'd get married to a girl here, and I told him that if I liked her, yeah and his response (laughing as well) "You get married here. She'll divorce you the next day" ....

    Yeah divorce is more common here, but I thought that as almost sexist/racist

    Other than that, he's a pretty OK guy. He just has a pretty closed mind on some things, and I think he speaks Pashto yes

    On another slightly annoying point, I'm fine to let him use my stuff, as long as he asks, but he didn't ask

    Like I bought some ketchup, and noticed half of it were gone and he only asked if he could use it when we were in the kitchen together 3 days or so later ie: when I were there

    And when he used my cling film, he didn't ask for days and never did, until I asked "Is that my cling film" I'm absolutely happy to let him use my stuff, so long as he asks!

    I've been offered a place at college to take 4 AS subjects, but I've decided to do three: English Literature, Sociology and Business Studies.

    Is anyone else starting their AS subjects this year or has anyone here already started their A Levels? I'd just like to know which fellow Pakistani's in this society are also starting or in the process of starting their A2's.

    I quite like biology as well. Chemistry, we just made things burn and go boom (We weren't even meant to make things burn or go boom lol) But mainly burning. We did a lot of burning in chemistry lol

    And in English, I was always sticking pins in Shakespeare's eyes And occasionally his nose as well.

    From Obamays (my mum calls him that lol) speech yesterday, yes it seemed like he was about to go in on it...but he needs the Congress's approval which he most likely wont get so I guess Syrias safe (kinda) for now...it's sad no Muslim state is standing up to the US, except Iran of crs...and thats cz theyve Ahmadinejad...I heard he threatened to set the whole Israel on fire if they dared take military action in Syria (literally!)...lawl that man ain't scared of nothing...I wish Pakistan had a leader like him...such a fine leader, he inspires me lol

    edit: I'm inspired by his humble nature and that fearless attitude...I've no intentions of setting a whole country on fire!

    Ah I see. I guess it's easier for me to link here to what I think of the whole Syria thing:

    https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...16931698331370


    One thing I do admire about Iran is that they do stand up to the US, BUT that doesn't exactly stop them from being an authoritarian regime. And it'd be "nice" if Ahmadinejad's hatred of Israel was based on actual politics, as opposed to "They're Jews" I mean I dislike Israel, but I also dislike SA, and I dislike the USA. By that I mean the gov'ts of these countries.

    If any thing, both Israel and SA are gunning for the USA to strike Iran

    Thing is I wouldn't want a leader like him, purely because of how authoritarian he is.

    Sure you are :rolleyes: .... If you read through my posts, you'll notice I criticise Pakistan a LOT (I criticise the UK and USA more), but that doesn't mean that I hate human beings. Hate the gov't fine. Hate militant groups fine, but what the hell have you got against ordinary decent human beings?

    Ah fair enough. Have some lemsip/paracetamol?

    I find that the history of Iran is pretty interesting as well. I don't know so much about Iran as Persia and the Babylonians but I did a fair bit of research around Mohammed Mossadegh
