Bi weekly theme

I think it's time to start a bi-weekly theme for the community. The theme for this span will be a short story contest. All accepted members are able to participate, but contest judges will have to be appointed first. The judges have to waive their right to participate in the contest. I'll hold a poll to determine the judges.Five judges will be appointed after the poll results are tallied. Does this sound like fun? I hope so.....

::edit:: Rules for the contest:

The story would have to be at least two paragraphs in length.
You can chose any topic from the interest list to write about.
The judges will consider style, grammar, spelling and the overall nerdiness of the story, when making their decision.
Have fun with the story, that's what the contest is about.

P.S. math aficionados don't fret, we'll have an arithmetic bowl in two weeks.

Because, for those students among us, finals week is coming fast upon us once more...

Every semester, I keep a reverse tally of hours left until I'm done on my dry-erase board. I'd keep a tally of how many hours I study for each final, but I'm still trying to learn how to draw half a line.

==================================

IMPOSSIBLE FINAL:

Instructions: Read each question carefully. Answer all questions.
Time limit: 2 hours. Begin immediately.

==================================

When you get to your last final of the semester, you are so burnt out that you don't even care. You studied half as much as you did for the other ones, you probably don't remember to bring a pen, and when you finish, you don't check your answers over because you just want to hand it in and get the hell out of there. And you know why you can do that? Because you know that everyone else is doing the exact same thing.
