  1. Dear Santa... All I want for X-mas is for Henrik to shoot the damn puck.

  2. Those dreaded words... "I think we need to take a break."

  3. Would you rat on someone who has legitimately done ZERO work on a term assignment? This includes not showing up for data collection, meetings, or doing an assigned part.

      I wouldn't let the whole group know anything about this. I'd just email the prof (too awkward in person), and let him know what's up. Proceed like nothing happened in front of her.

      Rating your own members is one the laziest things ever. More often than not, people aren't honest about the voting.

      I think what would have worked best is to be proactive. If the person is not contributing have a 3 warning system.. 1) warning group tells person to contribute or else. 2) If person does not comply group has vote on whether to kick out person from the group. 3)Last chance prof gets involved decides how to handle the situation.

  4. Does there come a point where we're allowed to feel bad for the Oilers?

  5. The only thing worse than group assignments is professors who truly believe they hold any value at the undergraduate level.

      I'd say that out of all the group assignments I've had to do in my undergrad (at least 20+), I think only one project had an individual component. The one I have now is no different... one mark per group.

    3. Keslerific


      I was blessed when I went to post-secondary that I had the same group members for 2 years. We developed really good chemistry and always did a great job on our projects and presentations.. couldn't imagine doing it with different people all the time. I probs would of dropped out without their support

      I get what you're saying Denguin but I have to say, the two people that do the work are the ones that get the job at the end, and the ones that float are the ones that complain they have a BA and can't find a job. Job interviews in today's corporate world weed out the floaters. As a former guy who ended up doing all the work, I agree it sucks dirty balls, and there is no lesson for you, the lesson is for the people you worked to get a decent grade for.

  6. Planes are falling from the sky!

  7. Big shootout between cops and a gunman at Science World today. Hardly a surprise anymore, is it?

    1. Warhippy


      And another school shooting in the US. Good times

    2. Ghostsof1915


      It's still Canadian. The shooter was chased on a bicycle.

  8. Did NESN cover the finals? Kind of want to hear that homer's call of the final two minutes last night.

  9. Would you date someone who used to sleep around/cheat?

      No, I haven't. Been 100% faithful in every relationship I've been in.

  10. Can anyone at UBC in 4th year hold a course spot for me?

    1. Show previous comments  3 more
    2. Denguin


      4th years register today. It's not a horrible idea... it's done a lot. I got a friend to already, so thanks anyway guys.

      The tactic works as such:

      1) Person 1 registers course and "holds" it

      2) Person 2's registration time comes around

      3) Person 1 drops, and Person 2 registers the course within a few seconds of Person 1's drop.

    3. Where's Wellwood

      Where's Wellwood

      I've known people who did that and it didn't work.

    4. Denguin


      Only time when it wouldn't work is if the course has a waitlist. If there's no waitlist, it's practically foolproof.

  11. You know the game is bad when 6 people sitting in front of you are debating about religion instead of watching.

    1. Gman


      So Schneiderism or Luongoism?

    2. ChenWei91


      Obviously Lacksm.

  12. Too bad we don't have Wellwood anymore for the shootout...

    1. Aladeen


      Higgins is looking good out there... the Canucks need to remember that speed is what scores, speed is what backs the goalkeeper up. You can go way out to the side but without speed its just more time to make a save. Unless you have hands like P. Kane or Wellwood you must use speed!!

    2. Tortorella's Rant

      Tortorella's Rant

      His incompetence the rest of the time far outweighs the odd goal he might score in the shootout.

      too bad we don't have shootout anymore for Wellwood.

  13. A new Ferrari? Damn Santa... You outdid yourself this year!

    1. Ghostsof1915


      As in a model car, or a real one?

  14. Amber Alert: 3 Year Old in the Elk Lake region. Plate #: 347S BL.

    1. goalie13


      It's actually the Elk Valley in the Interior.

    2. Denguin


      Haha sorry that would be me posting that in the middle of a nap.

    3. goalie13


      According to Global news, they've crossed the border into Montana.

  15. Got a noise complaint for loud noise at 10 PM right next to frat village on Friday night... Go figure.

    1. Connauton


      You live near hampton place?

    2. Denguin


      Near, yes. I'm on the other side of the frats.

  16. At least we won't have to deal with Luongo's crappity October/Novembers anymore.

      I too, am tired of his crappity Autumns.

    3. BM24


      I'd take a crappy October then no season at all

    4. Grape


      It's not about the actual months. If the season starts in January, he'll be bad in January, which rarely happens in full seasons.

  17. Anybody know of some fun group night driving routes in the Vancouver/North Shore area?

    2. Mr.DirtyDangles


      Sounds awesome actually. I love night driving :)

    3. Denguin


      Yeah it's pretty damn fun if you do it once in a while. No traffic and pitch blackness at decent speeds... Usually we round up 5-6 cars. Street racing is a definite no-no for some... a Mazda 3 doesn't quite have the power for that :P.

    4. BananaMash


      On a scale of A3 to 0- how high do naight driving make yeah?

  18. Hah! Miley Cyrus engaged at 19... That's going to end well.

      Funny, that's about the exact amount of time it's been since I was last on msn.

      Which school are you going to, again? I know you graduated high school last year. I'll be starting my fifth and final year next September. Should be pretty easy with only 5 courses between the two semesters.

    3. Denguin


      I'm out at UBC studying Kinesiology. Decided to get English over with so I wouldn't have to do so many of those readings during the year... but UBC makes a 4 month course into a 1 month course in the summer term. Definitely wish I dropped it!

      Final year, hey? Any idea what you want to be?

    4. VICanucksfan5551


      Cool. My mom took kinesiology for her first couple years at university before being accepted into physiotherapy school. I've been over at UBC a few times this summer semester to visit my girlfriend who's taking summer courses as well.

      Something ecology related. I haven't pinpointed anything more specific than that.

  20. Well it's safe to say I'm going to piss everyone off at my exam tomorrow... I have a HORRIBLE cough that medication is failing to suppress.

      I called him up and he said a concussion is a non-factor. I don't see how that helps me.

  21. A win tonight and the board will ERUPT.

      The board would erupt - everyone would be ticked off that we missed the game!

      I think he's being philosophical guys. "Every battle is won before it is fought." - Sun Tzu.

    4. ChenWei91


      We're not playing tonight...

  22. On the bright side, at least the boards didn't crash tonight.

    1. g_bassi13


      To ensure that all the awesome discussion that's happening after this game doesn't get lost. A true victory.

  23. Has anybody else seen their driver's lisence or credit cards under a black light? Mind = blown.
