Weirdly enough, Winzip (which came installed on this computer) actually hasn't been giving me any shit.
It works just fine and hasn't mentioned a trial at all. On my old computer it was a pain in the arse and I used 7Zip instead.

Still, it has the potential to act up. 7zip more reliable.

Yeah... but for some reason 7Zip refuses to work properly on this laptop.
Then again, I am still running Windows 8. I really should get around to updating now that I'm home again.

On a bunch of tests, 7zip's custom format is both more compact, and runs faster than either WinZip or WinRar. 7zip also makes zip files which are generally a little smaller than WinZip. So it beats WinZip at being WinZip basically, even if you never use the 7zip format.

Are you sure you have the right version for your operating system (32bit vs 64bit 7zip)?

People who hit the gas when going up hill.  Then they hit the brakes, at least 5 mph slower going down hill.

Hit it really hard, or hit it hard enough to not slow down going uphill?

Kids from California who pass you going 50 in a 35, a construction zone, after your lanes have merged, by forcing you off the side of the road.

I mean, seriously, fucking kids.

Typically, Cops only grab people going 20 or over(in Tri-State area from my experience), unless they have other issues with the driving/vehicle...

My recommendation is get into the 'main lane' if it looks like they are going to get to the merge at the same time as you are.  They'll have to slow down and go your pace... or be a moron and switch over to the side lane and try to pass you.  That usually doesn't happen though.  (Its best to just slow down and let them pass at that point.)

Alternatively, just slow down so they'd definitely pass before the merge, then switch to the main lane.  (I tend to cut it close.  It gives huge bonus points to intimidation if they are paying any attention.  More then a few times, even if they are going faster, the spooked ones will switch to the slow lane after that, in highways...)
... I may be considered an aggressive driver sometimes.

"Same difference" is dumb, but to have cake implies eating it. You can't eat a cake twice, which is why people can't have their cake (i.e. eat it) and then proceed to eat it too.
Oh, okay, that makes more sense, I took 'have' as you now own the/a cake, not that you ate it.

What? Gotta hope this is a joke. The meaning of "have" is "possess" in the proverb. It means you have to make a binary choice.

You have a cake. If you eat the cake, you no longer have a cake. If you didn't eat it, you could do something else with it. Give it to someone, eat it later or smoosh it into your enemies face. You don't have to eat it. If you kept the cake, you have options like "I can eat this cake when I want" in the future. But once you eat it, the possibility space collapses. It refers to every situation where if you pick one option then other options are excluded.

Abitur-difficulty exam tomorrow, on a subject that wasn't studied this period and I have no reading material for. I'd be more scared if this special exam was worth more than extra credit, but it was weird when I was told a few days ago "yeah, come to this test too, we need to test out this 'digital exam' system."

According to my Russian friends, the fact that I dislike going to bars for budgetary reasons is indicative of my "Jewish soul".

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

Apparently, there's a Category 4 hurricane heading in my direction, about tomorrow or so.

Really, I'd wish people would tell me theses things sooner.
