    Why? So you could be gay for me? I don't get it. Why would anyone want to be of the gender I don't want to have sex with?

    Running today - somewhere between 3km and 3.5km (I walked for a bit over a lap to chat to my girlfriend on the phone). Felt pretty good, and I was able to run a pretty fast kilometre at the end which wasn't really that taxing.

    Not even close. Cambridge is full of people who are ridiculously good at sports.

    Hay guise.

    Over the last week or so I have been doing lots of running and swimming but none of you care about that because you are all shallow and only love me for my guns. I am unreasonably proud of myself today after learning to do breast-stroke without drowning (somehow I never learnt to swim properly when I was young because I'm mentally backward or something).

    So yeah, over the weekend I competed in the modern pentathlon varsity match as a reserve. I came last and our team lost. Now I have a lovely litte trophy thing that says "reserves match runners up" on it, reminding me that I am probably in the world's top 10 all-time worst sportspeople.

    Funny you should say that:

    (Original post by The Tab, 23rd March 2010)
    End of term revelry resulted in high spirits for Catz Cardinals on the Thursday, an event which always attracts rowing just as interesting as the fancy dress. This year, however, some Mathmos decided they’d ruin everyone’s fun (sound familiar?) and put in a ridiculously strong boat, featuring such names as Coker, Strawson and some rather good girls too. Danny ‘Man-Mountain’ White, Part III Mathmo, was less than modest about the win:
    “Today, we have shown that students of Mathematics are not only intellectually, but also physically, superior to all others."
    What a nerd.
    :woo:



    Nice blog btw

    My ex-girlfriend is a mathmo. First term she was in the top 3 at Queen's Ergs. Second and third term she rowed Pembroke firsts. Second year she made the blue boat. Third year she trialled for GB.

    Mathmos are great at sports. I'm poor compared to loads of them.

    I honestly don't know why people stereotype mathematics students as being poor at sports. In my experience, the maths (and physics and engineering) types are the best at sports.

    If you go to any serious sports club at the university, everyone is a scientist. In my experience with the college boat club, the university powerlifting club and the university modern pentathlon club (and meeting people from other clubs on swaps) only around 10-15% of serious sportspeople are arts students despite them making up about half of the university's population. The fact is that students of scientific subjects have the discipline and drive for sporting acheivement where the arts generally don't seem to.

    Another interesting case I came across at the weekend: an old pentathlon club member who was a mathmo but is now a professional acrobat after ditching maths for his love of gymnastics and dance. Pretty stereotype breaking.

    From what I've seen, arts and humanities students tend to rarely be up before the afternoon, and prefer to spend their evenings and nights doing other things rather than training.

    its true, the more hardcore the science the more serious lifters there are in general.... like from compsci, physics mainly..... I rarely see a biologist with a half decent squat.

    Burningnun (bio-chemistry)?

    Even in this section, I think most of us regs are science/technology guys.

    Me - engineering.
    Chumb - maths
    Nun - bio-chemistry
    SMed - medicine
    redbuthotter - physics
    Powerlifter - pilot or something
    Miso - medicine
    rummang - something with technology
    Stamper - petroleum geology
    ch0c - vet

    That's all I can think of off of my head

    PN is law I think, so not exactly an arts/humanities student... and I don't know about Flux. I said most anyway.

    And not, I never got his name wrong.

    Copied and pasted it to get this:

    redbuthotter
