Walking to class, I ran into Andy Collins on the way. This is our brief exchange.

Me : You really missed out today. Lin was on fire this morning.
Andy : What?
Me : "Out of control", if you will.
Andy : What are you talking about?
Me : Yeah, I'm lying. It was awful.
Pause
Me : 205.
Andy : Oh! I've skipped that so many times I forget that I even take that class! Hey, I finished up my shell project. I got it done on time and the prof extended the deadline by 48 hours, thanks to idiots, people like you.
Me : Laughs Definitely.
Andy : Seriously, I was totally drunk last night and I had this moron asking me "WHY DOESN'T THIS WORK?!"

Abbreviated flashback to last night

(00:28:31) Kurt McKee : ok, what is /wrong/ with this?!
for ( int d = 0; d++; d < 127 ) {
(00:28:52) Andy Collins : int d = 0; d < 127 ; d++
(00:28:55) Andy Collins : there you go ;-)
(00:29:03) Kurt McKee : man, i just should go to bed.
(00:29:27) Andy Collins : Don't code while drunk or tired.
(00:43:19) Kurt McKee : i'll be drunk if i want to!
(00:43:23) Kurt McKee : i mean tired.
(00:43:24) Kurt McKee : tired.
(00:43:24) Andy Collins : I am!
(00:43:26) Kurt McKee : i said tired.
(00:43:27) Andy Collins : Drukn!
(00:43:28) Andy Collins : Durnk!
(00:43:30) Andy Collins : Drunk!
(00:43:54) Andy Collins : Hence why I'm probably not going to show up for 205.
