First Year

  • Started the in-Salt/ as-Salt thing at the lunch table

  • Made the names of classes into conversation

Came up with the idea of turning the class name (That's Debatable) into a Your Mom style comeback

  • Cracked the Wi-Fi password

Knew username, but the password took some time. Eventually during the third week, the program broke through and the RAG had Wi-Fi(you do realize google inspect is way faster right?) In response to the question... Yes but 1). So is getting it from the Lab, and 2). It requires more skill. Google inspect is like making a Smore in a microwave.)(what?)

Second Year

  • After being destroyed in ERS by Reece the first year, Ben vowed to get revenge and subsequently spent almost an entire year practicing.
  • Because of this, he has won over 100 games at TIP (as counted by a counter he keeps around his neck).
  • He still couldn't beat Reece though, with three, hour long games all ending in a stalemate.
  • Also bought two decks of cards at TIP
  • Now known as both ERS kid and Rubiks cube kid.
  • Instead of eating hotdogs every day only ate hotdogs every other day.

Rubiks Cubing

  • Ben was an avid cuber and always had a cube and a shape mod with him at all times.
  • His mains are 2 modified Gans 356s V2s, which Ben would brag about to anyone who was unfortunate enough to ask. Edit: his main is now a magnetic GTS V2
  • His backup is a weilong GTS (But he says it's "Too uncontrollable" yeah whatever. you just slow you skrub) Edit: His backup is now a GANS Air.

  • He averages below 30 seconds with CFOP and knows both full OLL and PLL (One day I'll be better than you).
  • He started around three months before TiP

Playing cards

  • Ben also knew a lot about playing cards.
  • He collects them but didn't bring any to TiP because I guess he didn't want to loose his "Precious White Centurion that is super rare and the one he made a custom wood box for..."
  • He would show off his cards to people and then get annoyed when they bend his cards.
  • Ben also liked to show off various flourishes or cuts whenever he was asked to shuffle.
  • Only person at East and West who may or may not be able to beat Sophia Chang, but as of yet hasn't.
  • Would rather play Uno than cards.
