-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

The marathon was in study events last year. Do we have to ask an admin to start it for us or something? Or we could do it in posting games, but I'd prefer it to be in study events.

Basically, we post pictures of mystery rocks for others to identify. Occasionally we post physical questions (like, what is the crystal structure of halite?). The last thread was over 50 pages, and was a really good study tool, if you could do it without a field guide/binder.
