  1. You should use this quote. “Life is too short to be living somebody else’s dream. Hugh Hefner”

    • I will , but will make it anonymous since i do not want to go into who Hugh Hefner is! thank you

  2. im look at the test(:

    • Excellent!

      • Me too:D

      • good job Eric!

  3. Grazie!

  4. the rock song video is helpful if you dont know the diffrent types of rocks.

  5. Finally i’m done studying mr.borden. :}

    • Awesome, I am counting on big things from you, click on the study button for the real test, ps dont tell anyone!

  6. i studied for about 45 minutes

  7. finaly done stydying!!! i think im ready! 🙂

    • look at the link that says study, it is the actual test

  8. mr borden i forgot your other website i need the seismograph standard

  9. […] The Great African Rift Valley ExpeditionAfrica Endeavor 2010ESS Standard 3 Test […]

  10. Hi Mr. Borden, I liked the video on 2012
