B'Div Rugby 2006... one of the best results in the 4 years that I've been in SASS.
Erm... Aaron loves small corners of buses?
I was looking through the photos stored on my Live Spaces, and to my pleasant surprise, I found some really nice, old photos which I have lost with the 2x my Seagate drive crashed... I'll post some of them over here over time. For now, here's some photos from 2006...

I feel like Frankenstein tonight... Don't know how much electricity (both static and current) I exposed myself to...
I tried to set up an 'aluminum foil' parabola for my router because we had to move it to a less-than ideal location, since I had to swap the Ethernet cable joining the Router to the modem, and the signal lost after the move was drastic.

I just came to realize how chocolates can be a saving grace for late-night study sessions like the one I has now. Helps with the mucle cramps from writing 80wpm (hand-writing, mind you).
Ok. Back to S.S.
Blogged on an iPod touch.

bottom line: Video Games do not cause people who play games to become violent.
So, lawyers, parents, and counsellors, do not blame VIOLENT video GAMES for ill-behaved, rebellious kids. [unless they refuse to do chores for you by breaking their vacuum cleaner before continuing with their games, then you may sell that X-Box 360 on ebay]

- Main article: Phytoestrogens
Soybeans contain isoflavones called genistein and daidzein, which are one source of phytoestrogens in the human diet. Because most naturally occurring estrogenic substances show weak activity, normal consumption of foods that contain these phytoestrogens should not provide sufficient amounts to elicit a physiological response in humans. However, animal studies have shown significant physiological responses, and many people's consumption of soy products (especially vegetarians and infants on soy formula) could far exceed what most studies would consider "normal" consumption.
Plant lignans associated with high fiber foods such as cereal brans and beans are the principal precursor to mammalian lignans which have an ability to bind to human estrogen sites. Soybeans are a significant source of mammalian lignan precursor secoisolariciresinol containing 13–273 µg/100 g dry weight. Another phytoestrogen in the human diet with estrogen activity is coumestans, which are found in beans, split-peas, with the best sources being alfalfa, clover, and soybean sprouts. Coumestrol, an isoflavone coumarin derivative is the only coumestan in foods.
Soybeans and processed soy foods do not contain the highest "total phytoestrogen" content of foods. A study in which data were presented on an as is (wet) basis per 100 g and per serving found that food groups with decreasing levels of total phytoestrogens per 100 g are nuts and oilseeds, soy products, cereals and breads, legumes, meat products, various processed foods that may contain soy, vegetables, and fruits.
Because of the phytoestrogen content, some studies indicate that there is an inverse correlation between soybean ingestion and testosteronein men. For this reason, they may protect against the development of prostate cancer. A theoretical decrease in the risk of prostate cancer should, however, be weighed against the side-effects of decreased testosterone, including diminished libido.

The list of options goes as such:
1. Stick to the SA tradition: SAJC
It all started with "Frozen", before I was in Primary school. for some reason, the radio kept playing this track, and I became interested in the song. It's odd to explain, but I loved this track a lot...
This sums up all 25 years of Madonna in a video. It's a megamix of various tracks she has made over the years...

GOOGLE HOAXES 2008
Google has a tradition of perpetrating April Fool's Day hoaxes, which generally have an intellectual sense of humor.
In Gmail, Google featured information for an update called "Gmail Custom Time"; a feature that would allow its users to send emails back in time. While composing a message, a button labeled "Set Custom Time" would allow one to send the message a specific interval in the past, as well as choose if the message appeared as "read" or "unread". None of the features appear in the service itself, but rather in a description of the update found here: http://mail.google.com/mail/help/customtime/index.html.
Google announces a joint project with the Virgin Group that aims to establish a permanent human settlement onMars (http://www.google.com/virgle/index.html). This operation has been named Project Virgle. it also includes videos of Richard Branson as well as Larry Page & Sergey Brin (The Founders of Google) on YouTube, talking about Virgle.
Google launches Dajare in Japan (google.co.jp), with the mission of "organizing the world’s laughter." 
Google announces gDay in Australia (http://www.google.com.au/intl/en/gday/press.html), a new beta search technology that will search web pages 24 hours before they are created.
Google Dialect Translation
Gmail Custom Time
Around 11:00 p.m. EST March 31, 2008, on the newer and older version of Gmail, but not in the basic HTML version, in the upper right corner, next to Settings, a link appeared labeled, "New! Gmail Custom Time". The link led to a 404 error before April 1st CST.  - It now leads to their latest hoax, Gmail Custom Time --> . The page claimed a new Gmail feature had been added that would allow people to date stamp their emails in the past, allowing for all sorts of mischief. Users would be limited to 10 Custom Times a year to minimize the number of fraudulent emails. Clicking any of the three links at the bottom of the page brought the user to a page indicating that Gmail Custom time was, in fact, their April Fools prank for 2008.
Google Calendar is Feeling Lucky
Google added the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button to its calendar feature. When you tried to create a new event, you were given the regular option of entering the correct details and hitting "Create Event," and also the new option of "I'm Feeling Lucky" which would set you up with an evening date with, among others, Matt Damon, Eric Cartman, or Angelina Jolie.
Google Wake Up Kit
Google launched their "Wake Up Kit" as a calendar notification option. The option sends a series of increasingly aggressive alerts, starting with an SMS message to your cellphone, and ending with a bucket of water dumped into your bed, which would then flip over, tossing you out (all using apparently free equipment).
A little easter egg was added, where a user can click the file menu and directly under new document is "New Airplane" which immediately opens a copy of a Google branded paper airplane.
