<HTML>as I work with numbers all the time I just look at the screen, type the result without staring at the keys, and have the mouse already over the 'click here', so it's just look-type-click, look-type-click (except when I make a mistake LOL)</HTML>
<HTML>ooh, sounds like a grand game. I've done a speed pub crawl at uni. The club we were running set a treasure hunt/pub crawl, so we had to start everyone off, then pub crawl the same route but get to the finish first so we could check who won.
Except after 11 pints we were in no condition to stand up, let alone check who'd got all the items (which included a pizza box, a physics first year, last week's guardian etc. Only one team got the physics student. Strangely it was an all-girl team who walked into the first pub and shouted 'any first year physics students fancy a pint with us?)
Some kind of checklist would be in order. Though what would you be drinking by the time you get to Y? pretty much anything, I suspect...</HTML>
<HTML>I can remember crawls like that. Perhaps the best one was with a boat club, and I'd promised some bloke's missus I'd bring him back to our college bar at the end of her shift. Five minutes to spare we duly down our pints, and can't find him. We eventually find him round the back doing somehting he definitely shouldn't have been.
Remembering her threats about what would happen if we lost him, we pulled him off, (er, better say we removed him from the offending other) and ran back with him to our own bar, before depositing him (now comatose from his head hitting the cobbles of Durham once too often) on the bar, in front of all her mates, with his pants round his ankles.
Strangely she forgot to thank me for the sterling service.
By the time we got to 'y' I'd be drinking extremely badly and messily, I think.
Kidnapping physics' students souns a bit like an Ooberman song called 'Physics Disco'.
(Bea, I'm much better behaved now, before you start to worry about me buying you a pint ;-) )</HTML>
<HTML>Durham's college challenge runs to 16, I think, when you include the union and things like that. Bung in Klute afterwards (officially worst night club in Britain) and 1 pub and you've got an 18-hole course for crazy golf. Par = 72 sips, and river = one major water hazard....</HTML>
