The Boat Race

I think this is our 100th link.
Anyway:
a) The poll is back. Website veterans will remember well the 2001 poll - I think it's been fixed since then but it's still vital to keep Cambridge above 50%.
b) You used to be able to change the logo in the top corner so you could have it light blue... can you still do this? I can't see how...
Slime football

From the same site as Andy's 'Gridlock', try World Cup slime football. Pretty straightforward until the semi-finals, it then becomes much tougher.

It looks as though this site might contain many more entertaining games, but can anyone read the lingo? (7 comments...)

Pluck My Tash

The most bizarre flash game that the BBC have ever come up with. Can you pluck Mark Lawrenson's upper lip fast enough to prevent his moustache growing back? Add in corner flags coming out of his ears and badgers invading the screen, and you've got one messed up game...

Googlism
http://www.googlism.comfrom mike goodson is a volunteer captain with black mountain fire department and works for the state of nc, Mon 25th Nov, 1:19pm
Another great way to find descriptions of your favourite everyday objects:

what is rowing? rowing is fun. rowing is the best sport on the planet.

what is first and third? first and third is absolutely free. first and third is a tall order but we're more than capable of doing it. first and third is particularly well suited to popular styles where there is usually a bass drum hit on the first beat.

who is martin peck? martin peck is pissed.

who is graham fisher? graham fisher is working up to twenty years experience and is a certified canoe.

who is john earl? john earl is a bit of a pratt. john earl is out on bail this morning. john earl is now deceased. (41 comments...)

Real email stories from Hoaxbusters
http://hoaxbusters.ciac.org/HBRea...from Rich, bored at work, Tue 17th Sep, 3:56pm
I got an email this morning, which I thought was probably a hoax, so I went to the Hoaxbusters website to check it out. It was indeed a hoax, but more interesting were the other hoaxes, some of which were quite amusingly silly. Best of all, however, was this page of emails that looked like hoaxes but weren't. The two at the bottom are simply fantastic (do go to the links after reading the report), although with the depth of knowledge and the competitiveness in the club, I'm sure we can beat three seconds...

BBC's Test The Nation
http://www.bbc.co.uk/testthenatio...from Phillip Schofield, Mon 13th May, 4:47pm
On Saturday night, 70,000 people joined in the BBC's IQ test. Leaving aside arguments about whether IQ really is a measure of intelligence and about the statistical significance of these results, there are some quite fun findings. Particularly satisfying (for those that are satisfied by that kind of thing) is the high incidence of intelligent people in Cambridge. As a subset of that, how intelligent is your average First And Third rower? The test is still there, so let's find out. For the record, it reckons my IQ is 130...

Bumps fines
http://www.firstandthird.org/xls/...from gf, Tue 19th Mar, 10:35am
Inspired by the recent achievement of a week's racing without any penalties, this spreadsheet takes a look at the fines handed out by CUCBC over the last ten sets of bumps (Mays 97 - Lents 02 inclusive).

At just 5.17quid [Martin - why does this message board reject the pound symbol?] for each of our 88 crews, 1st & 3rd are one of the best-behaved clubs on the river. True to form, Downing are 33rd out of 34.

A few notes:

1) Due to limited data, the fines for Lents 98 cannot currently be attributed to particular crews within a club, and hence are shown here spread evenly across the days and with a gender split in proportion to the number of crews racing within that club.

2) Where a fine is payable by a club rather than a crew (e.g. failure to provide marshal), it has been split by gender according to number of crews.

3) Amazingly, our 58 May crews have never been fined on a Wednesday. (15 comments...)
