Mmk. So.

I took my US History AP Exam. Now, I'm not supposed to speak of anything on the test, so to be sure no AP officials are here reading this, I won't speak anything about it. Except that it was a complete waste of 85 dollars.
We were told to not guess on any questions in the multiple-choice section because one wrong answer is -1.25 points, but a blank answer is only -1. This is to prevent any random guessing. Well, with that in mind, i answered 68 of the 80 questions given. *shrugs*
Afterwards, I went to KFC to redeem my free chicken meal that I printed out a while ago. Their new grilled chicken does taste pretty good.

This entire weekend, I've been trying to play "catch-up" with my work. I've got a poster due in less than 12 hours on logical fallacies. I have to define all terms, make a conversation-like example, and draw a picture of the example. I bs'd my way through it, of course 'cause I was getting annoyed at all the thinking I had to do. Thinking sucks.

Know what else sucks? Having people KS you. I was playing Dragonica a few minutes ago, and I get all these people taking my kills while I'm trying to finish a few quests. Come on, really. I just need a few more bats, and you guys come in an ruin it all by wiping the entire screen. It's hard to use a Mage to pwn an entire map when you can't 1-hit anything. QQ

Speaking of Dragonica, I really hate those Instanced Missions. One, they're incredibly long. Two, when you're partied with people and they die, they normally run out and ask you to re-do the stage when you're halfway through; couldn't they just resurrect themselves and save gd time? To follow that up, after they all leave (ironically, always in the boss room), I die. 'Cause of that darned Toto/Tutu/Poo-poo whatever. I try to muster up what I can to take on the challenge of soloing the boss, but I notice that I'm short on cash -- I have 4 silver, and I need 57 to revive. Lame.

On a much brighter note, though, Sword of the New World's MMOG branch -- The Moogles -- have gotten a lot more active. I mean, just last week I could see an average of 4-5 people on at once. Now, I always see 10~ people on (unless the server threw up or something). It's a nice boost to see more people on. It means we can do more things as a clan now, like back to doing weekly missions/PvP-tourneys.

With SotNW in mind, I finally vetted my Summoner Catherine. Now, with a Silver Attack controller (I got an extra +1 AR from enchants, too!), I will conquer LoD and farm POs! \o\


Back to real life . . .
. . . this Wednesday is my last AP Exam of the year -- English. Baw, I'm freaking out. I don't think I'll have enough time to write out 3 analysis papers in 2 hours. Reading and looking for pieces of information in the passage takes long enough. Then composing them to create an essay? *shakes head*

Next weekend I'll be in Las Vegas. My mom's friends are throwing a get-together, and they're bringing all their immediate families, which means I'm included. I figure it'll be fun -- lots of food and stuff to buy. If not, I can always crawl back to the hotel room and play internets on my laptop or something.

(Trying to revive this blog, my lolFacebook, and my Tumblr all at once. Whew, lots of stuff to do now. QQ)


Also, something I learned from my logical fallacies poster.

Source: http://plover.net/~bonds/adhominem.html
Quote:
A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “This does not logically follow. And you’re an *******.”

B is abusive, but his argument is still not ad hominem. He engages with A’s argument. There is no reason to conclude that the personal abuse of A is part of B’s argument, or that B thinks it undermines A’s argument.

A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “You’re an *******.”

B’s reply is not necessarily ad hominem. There is no evidence that’s his abusive statement is intended as a counter-argument. If it’s not an argument, it’s not an ad hominem argument.

A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “You evidently know nothing about logic. And you’re an *******.”

Again, B’s reply is not necessarily ad hominem.

A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “**** you.”

Not ad hominem. B’s abuse is not a counter-argument, but a request for A to cease the discussion.

A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “Well, you’ve never had a good grasp of logic, so this can’t be true.”

B’s argument here is ad hominem. He concludes that A is wrong not by addressing A’s argument, but by appealing to the negative image of A the person.

A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “Well, you’re a moron and an *******, so there goes your argument.”

B’s reply here is ad hominem and abusive.

A: “All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn’t a rodent, so it can’t be a mammal.”
B: “Well, you’re a rodent and a weasel, so there goes your argument.”

B’s argument here might appear on superficial inspection to be sound, but it is in fact ad hominem. He is using the terms “rodent” and “weasel” in different senses to those used by A. Although he tries to make it appear that he is countering A’s argument by invalidating one of the premises, he is in fact trying to counter A’s argument by heaping abuse on A. (This might also be an example of an ad homonym argument.)
