Did I Just Read That?

Today, Anda asked how to install Java onto my new laptop. When she Googled the manual to try to find out how, we found this sentence:
Some Java applications may experience problems or worse problems under other JREs.
So what's the difference between a problem and a worse problem?

Destination Imaginaton

Today, I had to go to a school somewhere far from Longmont for my Destination Imagination Competition. I went with my team members Anastasia Damick and Kaiya Hirai, with Kaiya's mom. When we got there, we had to wait a while for Emily Taft and Jazz Mueller, my other two team members, to get there. Then we had to wait a bit, and then we had to do an Instant Challenge, a quick challenge that took a short time. I'm not allowed to talk about it until the end of July, and all I can tell you is this: It was fun, and we had to do something. After July, I'll edit to include details. Then we got taken into the "Break out" room, where we got to wait. We also got free pencils and rubber eraser-coverers (and maybe erasers) that were made to look like small milk bottles. Then we went to the gym in the audience part to do a little preparation and watch one of the performances. Then we went to get our structure tested, and it was perfect except the popsicle sticks, which were an eighth of an inch to large, so we had to clip the sticks with pliers and remove the unneeded wood with a pocketknify-thing. Then we tested again, and it passed. Then later we went on, and did our skit. It's about an alien who tries to take over the world, and is foiled by getting flung into the sun. We did it perfectly, and Kaiya had to add weights to the structure after her role as the hiker. We finished with ten seconds left. Afterwards, we left, and on the way home, we got ice cream from Sonic. Then when i got home, i went to bed.
