### crazy dreams

Ever have them crazy dreams? This afternoon I went home and ate some salsa con cheese and took a nap after work.(an american nap, yes there is a difference). Now I dont know if it was the cheese or what but I had this dream of "romantic nature" and at the end the girl turned into a bag of salad! I dont know if its because I recently moved to Lawton Oklahoma. (Its not that bad) or eating cheese before nap time.

### Puzzling Travels of a Tom-Cat.

Here's a puzzle I came across recently.  I've changed the context to stop people googling the answer :- A big ginger tom-cat leaves his home at 8:00 one morning and goes trundling around the neighbourhood, pausing here and there to 'leave his calling-card', stopping for a brief nap or two in a particularly warm spot, walking along fences, running through unfriendly gardens (woof woof) and  finding a warm car bonnet in a garage at 6:00 in the evening for a rest.  Unfortunately, the owner shuts the garage door and the cat is trapped for the night. At 8:00 the next morning the garage door opens and the cat comes scooting out.  Over the course of the day he takes the exact same path he took the day before but in reverse.  He stops in different places, makes his mark in other places and takes his naps at different places along the way, arriving back at his own house at 6:00 in the evening for a well deserved meal. The question :- What is the likelihood that there will be a time and place along the route where he is at EXACTLY the same point on the route at EXACTLY the same time of day on both days?

Welcome to the 1 o'clock thread. This is pretty much off-topic, but there's a rule: you can only post after 1 o'clock, your time.Just to be specific:Once you go to sleep, even a nap, you can't post until the next day.If you manage to polyphastically sleep, or you don't go to bed until 6AM, somehow making you awake at 1, wait until you're tired.The point is to see how we are on the brink of insanity... this post, as you may or may not see, was written around 1... and I think it shows.

### And now I'm left feeling slightly empty

Finals are OVER! And I should be ecstatic, but I'm just exhausted. I had Fluids, knocked that mutha outta the park. Modeling Methods (ugh!) think I did good, even a zero on the final would still net me a B in the class. Circuit analysis (yech), somewhere between a 60-90 in that class, the class was incomprehensible, the online test was broken and you can't learn with 220 people chatting over the prof. and lastly Machine Design- I'm worried about that one, I had a 90% going into the final, but I forgot to put J & I for a solid shaft on my formula sheet, oops, that cost me a shaft design problem, and when the heck did we cover welding? dammint. Next up Vibrations, Heat Transfer, Mech Properties of Materials and CadCam. BUT!!!! in between, well I have an interview tomorrow, I'm undecided on if that is a good thing, and then it's a week of floating around the Caribbean. Woot! And I'm now a member of Tau Beta Pi, which I'm pretty darned proud of. But FINALS ARE OVER!!!! No more spending until 1am in the library until we're all so tired we can't even read the problems. YEA!!!!!! nap time.
