With Fact Boy

Now in Fact-o-Vision

That's right, Fact-o-Vision(TR). In order to access Fact Boy's facts, you must have a mouse. Not a pet mouse, those are icky. You need a computer mouse, which I assume you already have. To see a fact, simply move your mouse pointer over any asterisk you see (*) and you will instantly become one IQ point smarter by reading the fact that appears at the bottom of your browser window. Don't actually CLICK on the astersik, or your computer just might explode.

Happy Holidays everybody! Ahhh, I am finally learning HTML which is a lot easier than the crap I am learning**. That is what I am focusing on this month. Something with education*.

So, this may not be the case with all of you guys out there, but I am sure that some of you are having the "end-of-the-semester-blues"**. OK, I know some of you are saying, "But Factboy, I don't go to college!" TOO BAD**, I am doing it anyway.

And with Christmas coming up, I, once again, decide on a parody of 'Twas the Night before Christmas', but not*** by Dr. Suess, or somebody claiming to be him.

As I indicated before, a lot of my reader* is in college. In other words, I go to college. These last couple of weeks for** me are going to be very difficult, with lots of programs to do, but I still find time to make a program to generate my page. On top of this, I have three other programming* classes, all with programs due, a twenty page research paper that I haven't started yet, and enough homework to make even Big Head's* head spin. Like the idiot I am, I have been watching Happy Days* on Nick-at-Nite and saying "I will do it tomorrow." The thing is that Happy Days is on tomorrow too, so I am never going to get anything done.

I bet you are saying right now, "Who cares?" Well, I'll tell you, NOBODY!* That's right, nobody gives a hoot what you have to do. Think about the way you feel right now with me spilling my guts about school, that is the way you feel*. Hell, even I feel that way about myself. So, why am I still going on about it?

Here is why...because I can. But, you don't care about that** either, so, to further you lack of enjoyment of reading this, maybe this will brighten up your spirits. A College Version of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' is all it took for me. Though I didn't find if very funny, it is very appropriate for me. And with a lot of you being college students, I am sure you are falling into the same problem*. No time to do the things you don't want to do, like programs, tests, homework, disjunctive sylogism*, and catastrophic cancellation.

All we have time to do is things we need to do, like drinking*, go to parties*, and go out with chicks* or dudes*.

Now, don't get mad at the first line if you go to a public school. I know, all of you may not be praying** I even know people who claim to be atheist, or worship something like a cow or goat* aren't praying*. That is their choice though.

They go on further to say that they aren't*** sleeping. Well, I got news for you, NOBODY IS. Who sleeps at school anyhow? Unless you're me and have classes** that begin at 11:00 A.M. What's with this drinking thing also? Not everybody drinks! Who cares, a lot of people do. One thing we all can agree on is the pizza. Ain't nothin' like a good ol' pizza break during studying for a big test***.

Patron Saint Put-It-Off is here to rescue you*. Actually, her methods of studying are very good. Cliff's Notes*, last years tests*, and cramming all help the slave-driven*** college student like yourself and I.

Boy, do I babble*. Why don't you read it for yourself. It shouldn't take you more than four minutes, and it may not be funny, but it sure is something a lot of us can relate to.

I hope I don't blow up in a month*.

Factually Yours,
