I will ride a Tyrannosaurus from building to building, while the Requiem for a Dream theme song plays in the background.
I'm thinking that i'm going to bring a stuffed animal horse (instead of a real one) and ride it to my events, it will easily fit in the trailor without harming the builds... I wonder what would happen If I rode it into the event and all the way to my seat... what would the proctor do???
-keep in mind, the song 'born to be wild' will be playing while i'm riding the stuffed pony

Oh, and p.s. i'm diggin the T-Rex idea 8-)
i would ride my velociraptor, but he doesnt like planes

Physics workshops were pretty exciting. But now I feel so inadequate compared to smart kids in Div B.

I went to "The Wonders of Physics," which had a bunch of great, simple demonstrations, and I also went to "See Computer Technology at its Best," where we got a tour of the medical records software company Epic, which is somewhere just outside Madison. And it was really EPIC!
