Biology Online Newsletter !!

Post by SilverXIII » Thu May 18, 2006 8:16 am

Hi.

I was in my Maths class when my teacher told me to stick equations on the toilet door so i can look at them when waiting for the stuff to come out.. then i suddenly got the idea - a Biology online newsletter.

A newsletter that will be sent to every subscribed member of the forum, to inform people about cool biology facts and links and sites.

I mean, it will take alot of effort and such, but reading a newsletter everyday or week will clear my mind off the addicting online games lol.

*btw i came 2nd in biology in my class* yay :D Almost first :P 1 mark apart.
... If you think about it.

If I volunteer to be editor for the newsletter, do I get a cool title under my username?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

No, I was thinking "editor."
