That no matter how polite a notice you leave, or how early you get up to take it down, some people will feel highly inconvinenced when you set up your tent in the kitchen over night, despite have gone to bed 2 mins after you did it.

I spent 4 days wild camping in glen nevis, we had torrential rain, and very high winds. when we were taking the tent down, the up until then dry inner tent, blew off down the glen* and ended up in a very deep puddle, soaked.

I got back at 2am, and immediately put the inner tent up (its a geodesic one so needs pegs only for the flysheet.) opened the "doors" and put the heaters on in the kitchen...

This morning I got up at 7am to take the now dried tent down & fold it. At 9 I leave my room again to head off only to hear one of my flat mates whining that i'd set a tent up in the kitchen, despite their own admission that it never actually affected their use of it.

Tonight I'm drying the flysheet; the whole room will be a sea of safety orange.

Spoiler:
It's one of these bad boys.

*Ancillary learning point: Just because 10 pegs and 8 guy lines held your tent fast, doesn't mean that leaving it with two pegs and no guys will prevent it blowing away.

Ah. I was under the impression that you set up your tent in the kitchen, and then promptly went to sleep in said tent. Your version makes much more sense.

Some things I've learned recently include:

-I thought I knew what penises looked like but really I didn't; what penises look like
-the train conductors on the route I use *never* check for ID
-some new music
-the set of xkcdians who know about Rinkworks/Adventure Games Live is depressingly small
-what "grep" means
-the four words that fulfill the prophecy
-how to make cheesy noodles; how to make them well
-at least three of the five people who live in this suite have announced their intention to move out before the end of the year; two are making good progress; one I'm afraid to ask; the last suitemate is someone I've basically exchanged two words with all year long, and the fifth person is me
-they won't take out the extra bed/desk/wardrobe when someone moves out mid-year
-big trains freak me the hell out when I'm stressed
-my friend's mother FINALLY got rid of the piano in their house, so they could move a bunch of the stuff that was in boxes in the living room to shelves in the living room where the piano was, but a bit later, she saw a 2'x2'x3' box full of packets snaps and safety pins for $8 and couldn't resist, and, well, the clutter is far from gone
-how to stay up for almost 24 hours...zzzzzz

Ooh, ooh! One more thing I learned:

Okay, so, you know how people will sometimes show you pictures of them that maybe it would be creepy to save? and how when that's online, you can right-click on the image and it gives you a drop-down menu of options to do with the picture?

Well, before I got any add-ons or anything, I decided the creepiest possible option was probably "set as desktop background." But now, with Shareaholic, Stumbleupon's photoblog, and Fast Dial, I have learned about whole new realms of creepy options!

...actually "set as desktop background" is probably still creepier than any of them except maybe Fast Dial, which shows you thumbnail-links of up to nine websites (you choose, like if you visit Google Images a lot or maybe a class homepage) every time you open a new tab.

I learned that the pharmacological efects of dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline are
a) very complicated, and
b) very, very interesting.

Or rather, make that all drugs that affect the autonomous nervous system.

This was our first lecture on anything concerning pharmacology and I already love it :D

If there is one thing that I have learned about the parents, its that no amount of panic, worry, craziness, etc on their behalf is impossible. Also, if there's anything I've learned about the internet, its that if it can/has happened in real life (and even if it can't), it will exist somewhere on the internet.
