Re: Countdown to Build Season!

Why sleep when you can anxiously stay up, pull an all-nighter? besides, this will help get you acclimated to no sleep, the caffeine, and nervousness.

I would spend all of winter break sleeping so I can go the next 6 weeks without it.

Or like sleep a month and stay awake for the rest of the year.

Israel gets their kickoff at 5 PM. I'd hate to have to wait that late in the day to find out the game.

We're doing one in our new building for those of us who chose to stay behind and set up the field instead of going to the local kick-off. Nice big projector screen, and it doesn't start until 10 here...

Re: Countdown to Build Season!

while i am part of the contingent that is going to the kickoff at VCU, the rest of my team is a 3 minute walk away back at school in a room watching it on a big projector. unfortunently, the school wont unblock streaming video for the weekend or let us use the massive satalite dish on the roof (which they havent touched in 3 years of the 5 the school has existed) so the team is forced to tap into the wireless from Virginia Union Univeristy! This means that you get a new grainy picture every 3 seconds during a very choppy audio stream projected onto a massive screen that makes it look worse. good thing you can download the game animation later!

Trust me, you'll learn that trick when you hit college finals... Starbucks!

I can't decide if I'm excited or not for build to start. So much fun, but so much time not spent studying! Oh well, easy classes this semester!

I've always suspected that one could find glimpses of wisdom, setting priorities, and responsibility - and ways to balance them, in the contents of a coffee cup. I think you've just proven my theory, Ms. Sweet.

You'll catch the wave, not to worry.

Re: Countdown to Build Season!

you know I had an idea from my last mech physics class.

matter warps time yes,
time is warped more the closer you are to that object.
time is warped "slower" when you are near an object with mass(you get close to a black hole people will see you going slower while you see them going faster)

so if you lay down, as close as you can to the earth for the next week. you might just shave off a few nano secs off of your wait vs some one whose standing maybe more if your in a particularly dense area on the earth.

(ohh and dont say dig a hole cause newtons shell therom will just mess you up)

Six, actually. Count 'em: 7:00 AM start on kickoff (10:00 AM EST), and 12 midnight ship local. Easterners ship deadline is 9:00 PM our time. 3+3=6.

Re: Countdown to Build Season!

This is totally staying up on my desktop until kick-off. I was hoping I could stay sane for a few more days, but it seems I can't keep the kick-off frenzy from taking over me.

5 days 40 minutes to go wOOt!!
