    Good night and joy be with you all.

Sure, I'll be stressed if I think I don't have enough time but at least I know that it'll be over soon. Hmm, very acute disease versus chronic disease.
    Good points!

    I've never seen anyone actually die at a deadline, so I'm always a bit skeptical and laid-back about them.

    Then, the word deadline eventually loses it's power. It becomes a fuzzy, mostly irrelevant goal. It's something which just sounds good. The result is that people invent new words and phrases. They start saying things like:
    real deadline
    absolute deadline
    final deadline
    fallback deadline
    dead deadline
    drop-dead deadline
    drop-dead date

    That's the problem with the world today: deadline relativism.

    HAHAH!

    Well normally I'd say that the deadline is whenever the prof decides to collect the assignments from the dropbox but you never know. Electronic age and all.

    Yup.

    Pretty sure if this is the end I'm all set.
    I like fog. Especially when it's everywhere and you can't see anything, and it deadens all the sounds. It's pretty awesome.

    Thank you for picking a great place and everyone for a fun evening! Off to bed to get some rest before that English test tomorrow. Been a long time since I've taken a test where I didn't have a word processor to check my speling - we will see how it goes .

    Thanks for inviting me. Sorry that I didn't talk much, some tendencies are difficult to break.
