I took Math 255. Got a new prof who curved the class to a B-/C+ average, and the class was haaaaard. Usually honors classes are good because you learn more and get rewarded where the class average is usually around a B+ and half the class gets A's.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Woah||
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Nah, just some friends||
Lots of organizations and residence halls do some big pools though, although the sample size is too large for any efficiency strategy/game theory
|25 weeks 5 days ago||On the topic of inefficiencies||
If I'm in a pool of all Michigan students, is it a better value for me to pick Michigan to go farther knowing that most will pick Michigan to go far into the tournament, or a more conservative pick?
|26 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty sure||
It was NASA saying they found evidence of organisms that utilized a mechanism using arsenic instead of carbon-based compounds to live. Study was basically wrong, that's why it disappeared. They released results prematurely and more analysis ruled out that hypothesis.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||that was||
actually pretty good
|31 weeks 5 days ago||But not nearly as well||
|31 weeks 5 days ago||But what if||
we made fake MSU/OSU Twitter accounts to tweet nasty things at recruits

is biomedical engineering I believe. Definitely doable, but you've gotta be quite bright. As an engineer and a non-athlete myself, it's quite difficult already.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||So||
do I get an award for making it to the bottom of this thread?
|36 weeks 10 hours ago||Hey||
I weathered that out in the middle of the MSU student section. Not too fun.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||That was tickets sold||
And seeing as there were many tickets still available on StubHub and scalpers outside were having a real rough time, I doubt all 105,000 showed up
|38 weeks 2 days ago||I'm no longer at DTE but||
if you report that near miss and it shows up in the safety reports that would be hilarious
|39 weeks 3 days ago||Well here's the algorithm|
|39 weeks 3 days ago||So something||
Similar to Reddit almost? Of course the same algorithm of rating and timeliness couldn't be replicated (Reddit's algorithm is bugged, funny enough), but I do like that method of sorting
|40 weeks 5 days ago||You think that's a mess?||
The Maize Rage entrance is SINGLE FILE FOR THE ENTIRE STUDENT SECTION. It's the worst.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||This is pretty much right||
Plasma: deeper black levels is the big deal. No motion blur issues. Perfect for a man cave. Uses more electricity though.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Wait this isn't about the students?||
But in actuality, if Michigan fans could all wear the same color for once, it wouldn't look nearly as bad.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||If we score more than they do||
I think we might win this game
|41 weeks 5 days ago||Honestly||
Never paid more than $20 for a student ticket outside of ND, OSU, and MSU, all of which can be had for $50ish. Pretty much every ticket but those went for free day of game.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||It's not worth it to buy season tickets anymore||
My dad doesn't do seasons anymore, this season made every game paying no more than $35 for a ticket except for the Notre Dame game which was obviously a little more, all of them sidelines, and this was buying tickets in groups of 4 together so if you're just a single or duo, you could StubHub every game and pay even less.
|42 weeks 13 hours ago||That was me||
No offers :(
|42 weeks 16 hours ago||Because||
For a lot of students, thanksgiving is the only time to be home with family. So if you want the chance to see your family, you're selling your ticket to other broke students to watch a subpar football team, how much are you going to get when non students won't buy because of the validation prices and the other assorted inconveniences of the student section?
|42 weeks 3 days ago||The game isn't over break||
And this year break games are included in the student package anyway
|42 weeks 3 days ago||Wait oversold?||
Only 2500 students claimed tickets for 3,100 open seats, and 4,000ish have season tickets.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Conclusion||
Rich Rodriguez scorched earth effect
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Yes but||
Other students are buying them up for friends and family who are still in town. I'm buying student tickets for my family because they're significantly cheaper even with the validation price.

The OC for Slippery Rock is
|45 weeks 2 days ago||Going||
Sitting in the MSU student section.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Decision time||
Do I go to class or do I not go to class
