No, but everyone else in Pembroke is doing them. I felt peer pressure for the first bloody time in my life.

Yup, **** like that happens. If one person does the work, everyone feels obliged to do it or else you might face the question "so why didn't you do any work? he/she seems to have managed it" at your supervision! :biggrin:

I was in a supervision once where the supervisor opened a can of whoop ass on my supervision partner for not doing any work! :eek: It was not pleasant!

Now I definitely don't want to drink "woopass", I don't even want to see a can of such thing. Take it away from me!!

Shut up Alaric......
*cries like a girl* all the mathmos ran down to put our work in the pigeon hole for the 18.00 deadline and a few people had somehow done the ENTIRE numbers and sets and differential equations examples sheets. despite having been to enough lectures to just about write their names.

Right now you talking about? I think I can do about half of those example sheets and I'm a CompSci. You! If you don't the "woopass" treatment, then you'd better work harder!! :redface:


EDIT: Very very v bad "gamesmanship"... :redface:
Off to dinner. This probably means another trip down to Gardies later tonight... Why do I need to eat so much?? :frown:
To be a Fresher and worry about deadlines again... how I don't miss it! :tongue:

Does anyone know where I can buy a can of "woopass" to give to Baz?
Does anyone fancy a college crawl later?

Did one yesterday and fancy doing another one tonight... No Girtonians up4it :frown: so is anyone else?

Basically we try to get into as many colleges as possible which aren't our own, have a drink in their bar and hoon to the next place.

BTW - getting friends to let us in is blatent cheating, we have to blag something if porters stop us.. :smile:

Are you not supposed to drink in other colleges bars?
