Should i lie about my age?

I'm a junior in college and just transferred to my new school. whenever i meet new people, they all seem very surprised that im a junior not a freshman. i'm getting really fed up with this! i've been thinking about lying to people from now on: tellign them that i'm actually a sophmore

I really don't see the point in lying about your age or year in school. People are generally just curious and their surprise is a natural reaction as transfer students are typically rare in any undergraduate school. Just take some time to explain to people why you transferred, the curiosity will eventually dampen itself and you will become an inherent part of your new campus.

It depends on sex. If you are woman you start to lie about your age much earlier.

Still, college sounds a lot too early.

unless you can get sex by lying about your age. then college is the perfect time

Why lie when a simple change of base can accomplish the same thing.

I'm 34.

Ouch, Even if those were seconds it is still a double life time.
I was just punching up that number (FACT(13)) in Excel. :approve:

I can't wait 2C how that goes over at the DMV.
:rolleyes:

Of course, it would be fun to list your age as 2C, weight as 660 Newtons, and hair color as Natural Instincts #13. At least until they sent you back to the end of the line. :cry:

I tend to think they've seen it all at the DMV -- including the jokers who think they're the first ones to ever put "YES" down for sex.

Excel!?

Ha! I can punch up that number on my HP-27 hand held calculator (at least if I push the back in just right so the power switch stays on). My dad still held on to it after all these years and gave it to me last week. I received an abacus in a very nice wooden case from China (given to me by my sister) and a calculator all in the same week! :approve:

Was it your birthday?
I want an abacus really bad. I want a really pretty one that has semi-precious stones for the beads. :!!)

I just happened to have Excel open to do my bean counting, so I thought I would see if it had a factorial function. I was kinda surprised that it did. I don't know why; there's not much I've asked it for that it didn't deliver.

At least with an abacus you don't have to worry about batteries or power switches staying on. :biggrin:
