My understanding of Dios' high school science project story was that Dios was absent from school for a bit and was never told that he had to do a science project so with only days to go, he found out that he needed to do a science project and wasn't given extra time, despite the teacher's snafu. So while he was freaking out trying to think of a good science project to do on short notice, I think he somehow encountered some old school power line cables, through his mom or a friend of his mom, that were thicker than ropes and he thought "voila! Science project!" So he did this killer science project about the innards of power line cables and how they've gotten narrower over the years, and his teacher even said that he learned something that he didn't know before.
He did not get an A on said project. I think he got like a C+ on it.
Again, I could be wrong on a lot of things, but that's more or less what I recall.
