Oh yeah, we're learning new stuff at exponentially faster rate right now that it's simply astounding! ^_^ChangBooster:As someone who studied some (and forgot most of) neuroscience, I am aware that that s*** is HARD. The brain is a complicated place and it's uncharted territory, relatively speaking. But the progress made even in the last 10 years is mind boggling. Hard to imagine the stuff you might be working on in another 10 years.
So I finally made P100 today! Yeah!!!! :) Here's my screenshot: http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/4919/gvct.jpg . And I was doing what I love best: meteor spamming!!!! ^_^Congratulations on both your in-game and out-of-game accomplishments! It's great to have another doctor in the house (we can't let all the Witch Doctors steal all the fun, now can we? ;) ).
But I actually timed making P100 with an important event in my life... my dissertation defense! So today, I also successfully defended my PhD thesis and now I'm officially Dr. Tekk Zero too! I had a great time, and my committee was actually pretty nice. I was studying systems neuroscience at Carnegie Mellon, and my dissertation was focused on the development of neural circuits in the visual system.
A big thanks to TekkaZerox (my RL identical twin brother), Worloega, Gcanum, and Theoldred29 for helping me make P100 tonight. I wasn't sure I was gonna make my goal, since I was only 5% into P99 when I started farming tonight. But you guys rock and we did it! And lots of monsters died tonight. I got a whopping 21 legs, which is pretty impressive for someone like me that tends to farm pretty casually. And to boot, I found a 3%cc/Dex mempo! ^_^
Could my night get any better? Apparently, I was wrong... and it got even better!!!! After I made P100, Gcanum gifted me one of his older 10 APoC Chant's Force!!!! It was like a +10k dps boost on my Meteor Reduction one. WOW!!! A big thank you to an awesome wizard and class act. I'm just stunned, but I guess I shouldn't. Gcanum's always been an amazing and cool guy!!! So I'll just say a MEGA thank you to gcanum and wear my new shiny source with pride! ^_^
And a big shout-out to the members of this community for all the encouraging messages tonight, as well as over the last few months, that have been very supportive of me while I was preparing for the big D-Day (dissertation day lol)! And now it's Loroese's turn to defend his thesis and officially become Dr. Loroese. Go-go Loroese!!!
