doing a C++ college

There is a program called 'Pre-University College' on my school. What this means is that you can follow a single college on an university while your still at school. This is normally only for 5th and 6th grade (age 17 and 18, dutch school system), but they are allowing 4th graders to enter now. One ...

Re: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

There is a dutch proverb that describes exactly what I thought during this movie: "Verstand op nul en kijken".
It translates roughly to "intelligence on zero and watch".
This is not really a bad thing. I liked the movie, but it was just impossible for me to take it seriously.

The computer and laptop are both virus and spy/addware free (I have scanned it multiple times).
