*Sniffs at chocolate*. What's this? It can't be food because it doesn't smell of fish. But I did see it move, so maybe it's something to play with? *Watches chocolate for 10 minutes and bats with paw*. It hasn't moved. I wonder why you humans are so fond of those brown things. Let's see what's in my food bowl...

Welcome Bookjunkie. Please feel free to pull up a chair & share a thought or two. Also there is a party going on at our head quarters in Asterdam--please stop by a new face is always welcome.

@ Zorro it is a good thing that you do not like chocolate. Chocolate is poisinous to dogs & CATS. Carab is ok. DO NOT EAT CHOCOLATE.

Hey, just joined today. I'm 16 with one younger sibling (5 yrs). I read to much sf and fantasy and am really really awsome at math. I live in the US, but as i'm also an undercover CIA operative i am not at liberty to say any more. My name comes from a series writen by David Eddings called the Belgariad and its sequal series The Mallorean. The main charicters name is Belgarion and as bElgarion13 was taken when i first joined Runescape, i switched the first vowel. I play the Tenor Sazaphone.

As i'm now reaching for other things to say i'll just stop.

Hi! Welcome!
Maths, eh?
I'm a physics undergraduate, (masters student). I have to say that my maths isn't great though! I can integrate and differentiate no problem but I tend to get lost! Especially with matrix algebra!

Welcome Balgarion, and I really enjoy David Eddings too .
I remember the summer I read that series, it was a part of a really wonderful summer where I read 22 or 23 books. I have not matched that particular summer since.

Welcome Balgarion. Is the 13 significant? Perhaps I'm demonstrating my ignorance of the Belgariad?

Hello everyone, I'm new here. I've been reading Anne's work for the last 20 years or so, as well as the Pern series, my favourites are probably The Cystal Singer books and the Catteni sequence. I only just discovered this site as I haven't the internet for very long - I can see I got a lot of catching up to do!

Welcome to all new comers.
As far as math is concerned I am having problems teach the child 7th grade math much less anything higher. I HATE fractions. (Kibbie if you read this you still have to learn them).
