Well if you are I found a fantastic ad. (For people in Vancouver anyway)
If you watch the movie 'Jaws' backwards, its a movie about a shark that keeps throwing up people until they have to open a beach.

I should head down-town and get some lessons, my Tetris skills have gotten rusty over the years.
If I was anywhere near Vancouver and had 30$ to blow, I'd be all over that. More to see if the guy was serious and to reward a gutsy move than to actually boost my tetris skills.

When the heck did they start calling the pieces "Tetriminoes"? 1) It sounds ridiculous & 2) Back when the game was originally released they were already established as "Tetrids."

Mathematically, I think they were "Tetraminoes" long before Tetris came out. Mathematicians have been working with tessellations and space-filling patterns for ages and ages... I'm quite sure this is not a recent development. There are a bunch of different spellings, though. Tetraminoes, tetriminoes, tetrominoes. IDK. Tetra + Domino = Tetramino.
"Tetrids" sounds like a species of bug.
Also I am superb at Tetris, thank you very much, which is weird because I hated it as a kid. I'm completely obsessed with it now, though. I can play it for hours. I'm rather good.

I want the intermediate course where you get drunk and play Tetris.
I can't think of a signature.
