My favorite splash class was Patrol. Patrol is a game run weekly from 8-11:00 pm on saturdays. You are given a dart gun, several darts, and a headband. Headbands said whether you were alive or dead. It is run by the MIT Assasins guild. For splash it instead runs 7-10 and is open to splash registered people. We got 4 floors(basement, 1, 2, 3) to fight on. On the first floor there were several rooms that people could fight in, but everyone with green headbands joined together to monopolize the area.
We then proceeded to run around for three hours shooting at one another. If you got shot you resurrected on the third floor. There was a huge amount of fighting where two groups tried to reach the other end of the hallway, without even being sure what they would do when they got there. I made it through the entire corridor with just one dart. Someone actually wrote their masters thesis on the topic.
There was another class I took called applied cryomania, where we used liquid nitrogen for a variety of things, including making Ice Cream. Ice cream is measured based on two things: flavor and texture. they used a mixture that was about 50% fat, and therefore delicious. Texture comes from the speed at which it froze. Ice cream which froze slowly forms long chains of crystalline structures, and results in grainy ice cream. Basically, the faster, the better. Liquid nitrogen is about -196 degrees Centigrade. That is in Fahrenheit -320 degrees. Obviously, this was a very cool class. We did end up eating some of the best ice cream I have ever had. They had 3 flavors: chocolate, vanilla, and Coke. “Coke flavor?” you say, but it was actually very good.
I took a number of other interesting classes like How to solve a Rubik’s cube, Magic Systems for Dummies, and ZDI002: Intermediate Zombie Defense (I took Beginning Zombie Defense last year). The zombie defense class was very useful because it covered more strategic issues instead of just tactical ones.
