    Well you know they don't pick the best teams right? They pick a couple who they think will do very well, one in the middle, and one that will bomb out early. Otherwise it would be an Oxbridge walkover and nobody would watch!
    Are you joking or serious?

    Of course I'm serious! It's very rare for a non-Oxbridge team to win as it is. It probably applies for other universities too, but certainly for Oxford teams they're completely honest about the fact that they're not picking the four best teams from trials; they're picking a selection.

    RAWR! The crappy X-Files people did NOT just kill off The Lone Gunmen. They did not!

    Note: They did, but they should have been crucified for it.

    Second Note: You might cause more carnage if you attempted to go trampolining drunk?
    Your college dad just totally derailed my work plans for the night by turning up and making me forget I should have been essaying, not chatting to him :mad:

    There was a shoulder massage, but that's because he knows I'm broken and that massage is good for bursitis :p: Roll on the wpolo and Magdalen crew dates and actually chatting people up...

    Fair enough... our best people may be crap compared to other colleges anyway so we might still have a shot! Altho I did a quick google and apparently they look at over 150 teams, that is a lot!

    Just find a team and set them up on a crew date with the Assassins. Or come up with a drinking society made up of your male friends, and pick a women's boat at another college.

    I got told by my tutor that I should try and do more reading..... than the 4 books & 2 articles that are the norm. Hmm. I'm not giving up precious TV time for that! :tongue:

    I have to go shopping tomorrow to make endless supplies of pancakes. I had a dream about pancake-making when I had a nap earlier. Must be a subliminal annual reminder :grin:.
    I meant to say, vis-a-vis the discussion we had the other day about boiling potatoes and eggs in one's kettle, yesterday I cooked RAVIOLI in my kettle. It worked fine, although I had the devil's own job cleaning the damn thing afterwards. And that's despite the bottom of my kettle being completely flat (i.e. no bendy element thing). Still, minimum effort as I don't have to leave my room :yep:

    That's a disturbingly good idea. Assassins are both genders though.

    Either you organise it only with male Assassins, or you find a mixed team (say, mixed lax), or ask a team to bring some friends of the opposite sex.

    You do realise you can cook ravioli just by soaking it in a bowl of boiling water for a few minutes?! No mush to clear out of kettle!
