Saving the World in High School

Okay, if you're a guy, don't read this. You aren't allowed to. This preface won't be effective at all...

I've developed a way anyone in the world can make said world a better place. This kind of depends on your moral boundaries and whatnot, bug if you think you can manage it, do so.

The overwhelming of High School students are ridiculously horny, it's a fact. Boys and girls alike are itching to get some action, no matter how much they deny it. Unfortunately, religious stigma and societal views frequently prevent any action from being done to dispel these urges. This is unacceptable.

So here's my proposition. Any horny teenage girl, identify someone that you think is crazy-hot, walk up to him, and propose this:
  1. The two of you become 'friends with benefits'
  2. Whilst fooling around, give each other friendly constructive criticism
  3. Have fun
Those things aren't too hard, right? Not only does this arrangement result in some mindblowing, good times between to consenting teenagers; it increases their sexual prowess and knowledge. Sexual deities will emerge from social populations who participate in this plan, spreading the orgasmic awesomeness of this to others throughout their lifetime.

(Guys shouldn't read this because ladies are the only ones that can set this plan into motion. A guy can't approach a girl and say "I think you're hot; let's fuck" without getting slapped and/or sued.)

I'm sick of the stigma that has been given to sexuality over the years. It's time Americans go through another sexual revolution, similar to the one we experienced when Victorian ideals were abandoned. This plan furthermore increases the morale of it's participants. Sexual frustration will be nonexistent. Crime rates will drop. The world will be good.

Together, we can save the world. Are you willing to help?

A New WRHS Website?

I got bored tonight and decided to rework the WRHS website. The current one was designed in Word or Publisher or something and is undeniably bland. Hopefully this is better.

I made this layout in Macromedia Fireworks. Tell me how you like it. Do y'all have any suggestions, criticism, or comments? Should I work towards actually getting this adopted?

Keep in mind that the magenta parts are dynamic objects. The marquee will function like the one on the current website (the scrolling newsreel thing). The calendar would be updated with upcoming events.

Furthermore, the yellow at the bottom is a comment, and something I would appreciate input on.

My Master Plan

Anyone that knows me also knows that I desperately want to go to college at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Everything about the school looks amazing. Throughout the admissions website I found references to MIT's goal of making the world a better place, which I adamantly support. I could rant (and I probably will sometime) about all the reasons I want to go there, but I'll refrain from doing so right now.

The only problem with this is how I'm going to manage to get accepted. Because MIT kicks so much rear end, it also happens to be one of the most selective schools in America. My grades, test scores, and extracurricular participation are all very good, but I'm not sure if they're good enough for MIT.

This is where my recently devised master plan takes effect. I've decided to do a video application (in addition to all the paperwork and whatnot) that not only shows the admissions board what I do on a daily basis and gives them an idea of my personality, but also gives the board a break from reading and writing all over applications. I'm sure most people agree that watching my submission would be better, or at least more enjoyable, than reading it. Hopefully, this can make my application stand out from the rest.
So here's a general outline of what the video needs to include:
  • "A Day in the Life of Ben"
    • Go through all my classes
    • Show what goes down in my clubs
    • Interview friends/teachers/counselors
    • Work/Job
  • My accomplishments
    • Robot
    • Club DiRT
    • Medals (Forensics, USAD, etc)
  • Businesses
    • Computer Assembly
    • Web Design
  • My Philosophy
    • My Hero: Dad
      • Candid videos of his awesomeness
      • Pictures of his accomplishments
    • Make the world a better place!
    • Have a positive effect on everyone you meet
    • Leave things better than you found them
    • Collaboration leads to enlightenment
    • about MIT:
      • on MIT's support of Open Source
        • I've supported this throughout my community
        • I've educated others on the Open Source benefits
        • I've become well-versed in using Linux, etc.
      • Most of the education comes from the students
        • That's exciting!
      • Everyone there is amazing
      • Workload is a GOOD thing
        • Work Ethic
      • Problem Sets, All-Nighters, etc.
        • I want to do these things
        • I want to work hard
        • I want to be great
  • My Goals
    • I will change the world
    • I will help the world
    • MIT helps me realize these goals
      • Not only the education; the people/students there
  • Conclude
    • I'm in love with the "Make The World" better ideology
    • I'm more than willing to do the work there. In fact, I WANT to.
    • I will make the world better.
      • MIT may have to add one to their count of Nobel alums :)
This outline will be updated as I brainstorm more.
