COT

The Moleksin:

  • 3 FNGs in the gloom this morning.  We explored the studio space on some of their names.  Sproles and TSquare are preparing a powerpoint to explain the genesis of “Au Pair” and “Balmy.”  A string of Kevin Bacon-esque leaps to get there this morning…Nonetheless, these FNGs are the real deal.  #dolphlungrens
  • I have it on reliable information that the Earth revolves around the sun on an axis not perpendicular to the solar plane and said axis coupled with said revolution affects the amount of light we have in the gloom as the seasons change.  More research to follow, but, in any event, the orange cones weren’t visible at all when we started our merry series of windsprints.  Nerves of steel to sprint full bore into the darkness.  Raleigh Pax has’em in spades…
  • The Butcher’s Bill for today’s Orange Crush: slightly better than a nautical mile of windsprints (6,020 feet me thinks); 100 merkins; 100 Vee Ups/WWII Sit Ups; 100 Carolina Dry Docks.  Recreational line hops and planks to boot.
  • This Money Hose submits that today unintentionally involved the longest COT in Fletcher History; this individual did not properly multiply the number of Pax by length of Get to Know You Questionnaire; result was a 7 minute overage.  Such things prove fatal to Swiss political candidacies #makethetrainsrunontime
