How others compared you recently:
• "Who studies harder", you won 2 and lost 0 times.

I'm perfectly happy with the most studious ranking, it's what I do best :) But best to be stuck in handcuffs with? What does this say about me? Am I a person who's likely to go to jail? Or am I person who can bail you out of jail? Or maybe it's one of those questions like "If you could bring three things to a deserted island, what would you bring?" and people answer "Sunblock, drinking water, and Ben?"

As for my weaknesses, most fashionable? What's wrong with the glasses+sweater+dress pants+collared shirts+being asian = perfect nerd style equation? It's a tautology, and cannot be mathematically proven wrong!

As for bravery? Try benching the bar at the gym and nearly killing oneself without a spotter while people stop and do you get braver than that? :P

I protest!
