Here is my much-anticipated MASTER PLAN:
Using my incredible mathematical genius, I have figured
out how to fit an entire nine months of work into only
six months. I knew there was a reason I got a degree
in mathematics. (Or at least, I could, if I'd just pay
Purdue that pesky $40 I owe them.)
And while you're clicking on whatever links I happen
to post (you trust me too much, really), check out my
incredible art skills:
Cute lil guy, isn't he? That's the new mascot and logo
for Project Mallard. I named him Drake. Hey, you two,

have something to share with the whole class? What?
It's a perfectly nice drawing. Don't pick on Drake.
