Are you nuts:?: The university could have my backside on a platter for that... :-| :shock:
...
Unlike the first class of the "Economics" subject I had to take (Humanities) in 1977 - off across Swanston St. to the Oxford - the lecturer shouted the class of 15 - and discussed the economics of cheap packaged beer sales. :shock:

Well I'm tutoring first year engineering thermodynamics... apart from discussing the distillation of alcohol to produce beer, wine and spirits.... plus I'm not about to coerce an extra 6 VFF Platinums to guest my class into the lounge. Plus I have to shout them at least the train and bus fare there and back (or enough taxis).

And their tutorial topic for that week is on power generation and refrigeration cycles (critical topic, guaranteed at least 1 of the 4 questions on the final exam). Nothing about alcohol. :(

Power is generated by burning alcohol. The power generated is then used to refrigerate beer.

I haven't been on AFF much lately. Pencil me in for this gathering.

@Taezar, can you please text me a few days out as a reminder? Thanks!

5pm type entry to lounge -> 7pmish. Jump on Airtrain Fortitude Valley/City/Spring Hill/South Bank in 30 mins. Dinner started by 8pm and wrapped up around 10pm.

Would work for me.

I like the idea of this. Count me in. I'll most likely be driving up. I'll figure something out closer to the date.

There's two reasons. Here's another two.......

Doesn't CO[SUP]2 [/SUP]make a good refrigerant producing impressive COPs and doesn't CO[SUP]2[/SUP] carbonate beer?

Don't pigs produce methane which can than be used to power a generator and don't pigs swill beer? (well at least I've tried some beer that's very close to pig swill)?

You just don't look outside the square anat0l :cool: :p


PS, I've just seen this thread. I'll have to consult the boss but after last Lounge get-together, I'm sure we'll be starters! I wonder if I were to email Annette that my gold card is looking a bit tarnished, she'll nip down to Bunnings and buy a can of that platinum coloured metalic paint for me? ;)

Looks like we have enough interest with more than a month still to go.

Current plan is DJ Lounge from 5 to 7 for pre-dinner drinks then head into the city for dinner. Anyone who isn't interested in the lounge visit is more than welcome to join us at dinner in the city (venue still to be decided). I dare say that there will be more drinks after dinner ;)

Hmm, pencil me in as a maybe for drinks @ VA Lounge, but unlikely for dinner afterwards (homewards bound). Pity, I could have taken anat0l home...

Hilarious, I was just putting the event into my iPhone and I mistakenly typed "AFF Drunks...which upon reflection, might not be that far from the truth by the end of the night

Sounds like a date - there is a good chance that Evil1 and I will be able to attend this epic birthday bash.

Haven't got my roster out that far ahead but if I'm not working I'll be there. It's SO's week "off" so he'll be there too unless he's working in DRW or PER.

I've got tutoring until 6pm, and that's if my students let me off the hook at that time. I'll probably only be able to meet directly in the city for the main event.

Reminds me of what a teacher told me once about training:
  • Tell them what you're going to teach them
  • Teach them
  • Tell them what you've told them

You weren't a K1W1 in another life were you Lindsay? ;)

Can I crash a party when I don't know anyone? Perhaps first chance to meet some other AFFers in a group setting: I'll be getting to the lounge from ~18:30... do I just look for the loud, rowdy bunch?

** but I fly out on QF at 19:55, so won't be able to join dinner, sorry.

We have all been in that scenario, and I for one left thinking, "why hadn't I done this sooner", you will be most welcome.
