Opposite Gender Friends leads to Lower Academic Performance

Pacific Northwest FTF
I've only ever played FTF with people who don't really care about the game and want to be done after a year, and I always feel a twinge of jealousy when I sew those people having fun playing in real life on that crappy coast across the country. This is just a post to see who might be interested in getting something set up on this side of the country. I'm in the Seattle area.

Conundrum
So the people who make the schedules at my school are kinda dumb. I signed up for both AP Micro/Macroeconomics and AP European History. Only one class of each is being offered. And they happen to be the same hour. So I need to drop one and pick up some other course. I really don't know, so what (preferably AP) course would you suggest for me to take instead of AP Micro/Macroeconomics (because there's no chance I'll drop Euro)?

UPDATE:
some of you doubt my analytical skills because you're losers. Let me show you just what you're dealing with. At Dunkin Donuts I ordered a sesame bagel with butter, More spread, toasted, as well as a medium iced coffee with cream, one sugar, and coconut flavoring. Not only was it incredibly delicious but it came out to exactly $4.00. getting a delicious breakfast that also happens to be one of the three combinations of legitimate breakfast orders that lead to an exact even dollar amount is incredible, and frankly, even I'm impressed with myself.

this is the genius to face. This is the kind of training that goes into being an incredible face-to-face diplomacy player.

at the end of the day I am nothing more than a simple people's champion. I do it for you guys, I do it for the fans. #praiseKestas

@espi, while no sacrifice is too large for me to overcome in performing my sacred duties, the amount of time I've been exposed to the Sun waiting on this bench, with my increased genetic likelihood for skin melanoma, has already taken about a year off of my life. it's #worth though.

Have some time to kill. Ask yes/no questions to guess WHERE I am. If you guess right you go next. If you guess wrong you're out for the rest of the round.

Getting Germany every single game
Hi everybody, I'd like to ask if anyone has experience with an account getting a certain country every single game. One of my friends who I've played in several games against has drawn Germany out of the pot every single time. We're onto the fifth time out of 5 games he's gotten Germany.

I'd put it up to chance but we've reached 5 sigma and are on our way to 6. Thoughts?
