IIRC, I ended up sprinting through the arts building looking for a graphing calculator I needed for my chemistry lab (and had left in Computer Science, which is in the arts building for some reason), which I only noticed was missing in my physics lecture, which ends only 30 minutes before my chemistry lab starts.

So yeah, had to sprint to dorm, throw on my labcoat, then sprint back across campus to check if my graphing calculator was still in the lecture hall.

In the process running through a group of fine arts students who gave me all kinds of weird looks.


You should have run through muttering "Great Scott!" and going on about gigawatts.

But our university has a fine arts campus, I just avoid it like the plague. The last time I was there I felt like they were judging me because I was wearing a lab coat.


It was even more fun in forestry. You get some fantastic looks when you walk across campus carrying a hardhat and axe with a spencer tape on your waist.


Sounds good, did you ever try a running chainsaw ?

This was at UBC? If so, they had comp sci in arts? When I took it (and failed miserably) it was in the physics and astronomy building, iirc. Never took anything but arts (oddly enough) in the arts building.

what residence did you/do you live in?

(Disregard the above if you did/do not, in fact, attend UBC.)

Right school, wrong campus. I'm at UBC Okanagan, aka UBC for people too lazy to make it into UBC Vancouver. We don't even have a physics and astronomy building up here Laughing. As far as I know, our buildings are Fipke (Arts and sciences), the ASC building (Arts and sciences), the Arts building, the Engineering & Management building, the Science building, and the Health Sciences building. Honestly, it's a nightmare because science classes occur in almost every building on campus.

Just stay away from the engineering building, the engineers have formed some sort of cult that I think involves human sacrifice to the machine gods and chanting things in Greek.

PICKING APART EVERY DETAIL OF WHY FRITTER HAS ANYTHING AT ANY TIME


Maybe I should just petition Tat to change the forum's name to "The Life and Times of Fritter". Also, our lecture halls don't have any computers in them, only the labs. And I generally don't lug around my laptop.

Also, although this should go in the Life's Little Pleasures thread, I got my final chemistry mark back, B+/A- 81%. Well above the class average for the course and the exam. Feels good. Apparently it has the highest failure rate of any course, at 25%. As our prof said at the beginning of the year, "4 enter, 3 leave".

So the GOP here in the ol' STL approached the pride fest organizers about becoming an official sponsor. No official word on that impending hot mess, but keep your ears out for witty nocoast commentary on the subject.

*sigh* Somehow I'm not surprised.

I guess it's time to start investing some of my savings in bitcoins.

No system's ever perfect; we'll just have to see how things play out.

Best of luck to you.

Bitcoins sound like a brilliant idea. It's totally safe and reliable and above board and hasn't lost half its value in the last 18 months.
