This Thursday 27 October at 8:00 p.m. we will be having our Liquid Nitrogen Party! There will be lots of liquid nitrogen that can be used for anything you want (as long as it's somewhat safe). It will be held in Physics 157 and there will be food and drinks. It is going to be lots of crazy, sub-zero fun! We expect to see you there.
In addition, we *might* have a minimalist liquid nitrogen demo Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. in front of the Chapel. Check it out, if you please.

News to the world: complete understanding of projectile motion and hours of lab experience does not make one a good basketball player. That's why we lost. Maybe next time, **** it.
