i have 2 and maths questions for tomorrow, and one for thursday..plus we're damn scientists and spend our entire lives in lectures and labs
I sat down at seven to write that BoC essay. I thought, 5 hours 'til bedtime. Plenty of time. I thought, I'll just check my email. Plenty of time. I thought, I'll just look at the CompSci questions. 3.5 hours. Plenty of time. I thought, lets have a shower. Plenty of... ELEVEN PM??

Wow, I've managed to do no work at all either.

I have watched 'supersize me' though, was rather disturbing and somewhat entertaining.

Just solved a nasty anagram function in ML. Too messy too much code. Not elegant enough. Wombat, Jin's solution consists of no more than 10 lines of codes. Mine consist of 30 to 40 lines of code involves 4 other functions.

Mine is 6 in two functions, but it doesn't work. Does she want these by email again? We've only had them for 48 hours.

is it actually a blister with puss and stuff or just skin? I had a big bubble all under my big toe a couple of days ago. Frankly I've learnt now that if there's a cavity under your skin you rip the skin off now. I was expecting to find raw flesh and puss and stuff, but all I found was more skin. Very cool redundant skin, I feel like a snake .

/me apologises for the excessively random post - I'm avoiding work!

You're forgiven. It wasn't as bad as the jokes Dr Nick Gay keeps coming up with in Biochem lectures.

Oh God, he's not still doing that, is he? I nearly shot myself during his lectures last year. You should try playing Nobel prize bingo instead. Lucky lucky you - you get him later on in the year as well as this series! And he demonstrated for one of our MIMS practicals, and spent the whole time sucking up to the Christ's boys (he's a fellow there) and ignoring the rest of us :mad: Raaaa.

How does the essay race work? I think I'll be asked to do a finite state machine on that.

Well, it's not a very fair race. It goes something like this:

3 people sit on a landing. They moan about how they have to write their essays.

Person A makes some tea. Everyone drinks tea. They moan about how they have to write their essays.

Person B checks e-mails. Everyone piles into person B's room to check e-mails. They moan about how they have to write their essays.

They all sit on a landing again. They moan about how they have to write their essays.

Person D comes out and says they've been working for the last 2 hours. The other three all feel guilty.

Some bright spark suggests a race to see who can finish their essays first so we can all go to the bar. 3 people disappear into rooms and write essays in an attempt to "win" though it's somewhat dubious as all our essays are different and therefore requiring different amounts of work. Person A and Person B taunt each other by means of MSN names as to how much they're doing.

Person A (Helenia) gets bored with writing scientific stuff, so waffles for ~3 paragraphs on slightly handwavy concepts. Bungs together a conclusion and saves essay. Helenia wins.

Person A goes downstairs to mock losers, only to find person B sitting on stairs eating cake with 5 other people.
