Here at Manga Weekend – since we’re always having our manga break – we never do our homework.
Well, okay, we do. Just not on time.
Technically speaking though, it’s not exactly homework. In university the word ‘homework’ evolves into ‘assignment’.
It is terrifying.
Anyway this ‘assignment’ thing is basically the cause of our sporadic posts (if you discount our laziness). I don’t know if anybody notices this but our post frequency tends to fluctuate. There are days when we’ll be quarrelling over who should post and others when we post nothing for days before coming up with the week’s one-shot (the only thing we’ve managed to regularly maintain, really).
The ‘post nothing for days’ period is usually the time when we have our deadlines. Last week is just one out of many such examples. I didn’t sleep for 48 hours so I could finish writing up my practical. Chungky didn’t sleep for 72 hours in order to finish up 2 essays.
I was sitting in one of my lectures the other day and found out that the record for staying awake was set by some 17-year old high school kid who didn’t sleep for 264 hours (around 11 days). In a controlled experimental setting most participants could go on for about 8 – 10 days. People in war used to continue whacking each other for 4 days straight without sleep. There is nothing more fascinating than testing the human limits >=D
This post really is random and aimless. I just thought I should post something.
Have a nice day!
