    Oh of course I'll say hi. I love it - I liked basketball but was awful at dribbling, and I'm not very tall so Korfball seems to be perfect.

    Will! I played Korfball! It's great! Hopefully I'll see you at the Nottingham Tourney if I'm good enough to go by then. Us and our giant Badger.
    god, bristol and their bloody giant badger!
    Perhaps I shall see you, although perhaps I shall not. I am doing lightweight rowing trials so I am currently not playing korfball. However, if I get binned I will return to the korfball, so we shall have to see!

    Argh, i strained my side today palying a friendly football match against Trinity. I'm currently hunched over to one side a little because of it. On the plus side though i got a Blues trial in the process so maybe it was worth it.

    I did try to tell you, most people in it use road bikes don't they? Which are considerably more sensible than mountain bikes.

    A.
    Yep... I think 26:46 on a mountain bike is alright for 5 miles... except that guy ranked just before me did it 6 minutes faster on an older and shabbier mountain bike ...

    My legs are officially in trouble. They are not hurting. In fact, they never did. The state they are in now are kind worrying. They get tired really quickly while I'm cycling, then start to hurt a bit ...

    Sounds a bit like too much hard work to me, i prefer standing in goal on the football field as my form of "exercise".

    Korfball practice almost killed me, and I just played squash this evening (before going to the bar) and that was hell too. How come I can walk the ~3 miles to the university from my halls in less than 20 mins and still be knackered from a little game of squash? Ridiculous.

    Anyway - 9am tomorrow (surprisingly enough :rolleyes: ).

    squash I would say is a most knackering form of racket sports, I have seen people on television sweat so much they keep wiping their hands on the walls in between every point.

    I love squash though, it's great fitness work for podgy goalkeepers like me. I would like to complain abot Fresher's Flu though, does anyone want the latest strain, i have it for free! At least my first lecture is at 12 tomorrow, my first lie in at Cam in a year and a bit! Woohoo.

    I don't think I'm getting any supervisions this week... which is not a good thing, which means I'll get a shed load (Simon Moore says that... we think he's hinting that... never mind) of work.

    Some prat has just set off the fire alarm in my building AGAIN. Its happened about 5 times in the last 2 weeks! I know its someone downstairs because the smell of slightly singed food has just wafted up to my floor. Okay, its going to happen once, maybe twice but you'd think someone would learn how to not burn their own meals after a while!! This time I didn't even bother leaving my room.

    Got my first two example sheets today, and neither look too bad. Infact, the Symmetries in Particle Physics one looks decidedly tame from what I was expecting! Shame about the actual lectures. Today 4 people piped up complaining the lecturer hadn't defined something correctly, and spent 5 minutes politely arguing with him about why he needed to put the word "smooth" into a definition, despite him saying "Its not relevant to this section".

    Didn't these people learn in their 1st year, never ever call out anything in lectures! Two of them then proceeded to converse in fast, slightly angry Russian with one another clearly thinking the lecturer was wrong.

    At least I hammered someone in squash....

    It's ok to call out in lectures if your lecturer is working through a maths problem or something on the board and they have made a mistake. This happened a lot in QB. Otherwise, generally, you are right.

    If its something really bad like they say one thing and write another, fine. But questioning things like "I think you meant to put down...." and then being a picky **** about something doesn't do them any favours, especially if they continue to argue when the lecturer replies that their point isn't relevant.

    One guy used to do it all the time in the 1st year. Had a really whiny yorkshire accent and you could almost feel the room sigh when he said "Excuse me". Thankfully he does pure maths, and I've not been in any lectures with him for 2 years....
