I am the king of opening bayous and tropicals. 5 Trops and 4 bayous now in 8 sealed and 4 drafts.

Maindeck foil Bayou in a deck with no green cards just to try to get opponents to throttle you through the monitor?

i think you are giving them too much credit

and they are generally not losing the game to playing around tricks either

initially i really wanted to play my duals too but with fellwar/ 4/4 swamp/forest walk im going to contine to leave them in the board

3/3 island home guy too, i think thats all the reasons tho :/

So, anyway, non-Magic post coming up. This is still sort of a blog I guess.

Woke up really early this morning. My schedule is forcing me to be a morning person. I had Inventory & Production Management at 8 followed by Programmable Logic Controllers at 9. Both professors took roll, both pronounce my last name like it rhymes with lobby. That makes 3 out of 5 professors that can't pronounce Tobey. I have 2 first names that nobody can spell or pronounce.

After that, I met with my team for our senior design project. We are testing Buckyball structures as a roof coating material. We couldn't find any ASTM standards related to the testing of roof coating materials, so I came up with an experiment of my own design to test its heat transfer properties. The other group members liked it, so I emailed our experiment plan to the professor who is advising us on it.

Then I went to HEB and had the bizarre experience of realizing I was now buying breakfast food for the first time in my life. Bacon, how I've missed you. That sentence will probably ultimately be the cause of my death.

Took a nap and then went to my PLCs lab. I missed last week because I was flying back from DC, so I had never seen the program I was working with, so all I had to go with were my class notes and the lab manual. I actually didn't have too much trouble figuring it out on my own. Or so I thought. I called the professor over to show him my program so he could mark me off, and he looked at my programs and basically said "no, this is terrible, this is all wrong." He didn't really explain why, basically just berated me for not knowing exactly how to use a program I had never seen before. Eventually I got him to tell me what I did wrong. I didn't have things labeled correctly. So I got that fixed, but I still had a minor error and he berated me again, complained about how I was going to make him stay late, didn't tell me how to fix it. The guy at the computer next to me showed me what I was doing wrong and I finished and actually wound up getting out of there quicker than most of the class.

Then I got home, looked in my email, The professor for the buckyball project had emailed me back, basically said, this is unacceptable, why didn't you use these 2 ASTM standards for your testing? and then he linked to the two exact standards for what we are doing.

Textwall of Ice
0/7

So basically I felt like a total tard, then I opened a foil dual and my Fantasy football team got there so Im way up in the make believe stuff.

Can't really let that pass without the obligatory XKCD:
