Hey, is it ok to bring a guy to this thing? He's not a Mefite, but I'll vouch for him. I'm really ok if this is a Mefi only team building exercise.

I'm so pleased this is A Thing. I plan to be there despite having a crushing work week ahead of me.

As far as I'm concerned the more the merrier.

I'm flopping to "No" for tonight—too much work to get done and have to be fresh tomorrow. Slim chance I'll still make it, but unlikely. Knock 'em dead and I'll see youse guys next week.

Since I bussing it this week, I'll be a little later than usual-- I'll be there after 7:30, but probably before 8:00.

I uh, may have radically underprepared for my Hams & storage trip tomorrow, so I will be unable to make it. I will think of you all with hope and affection as I frantically throw things in my luggage, though.

Bad news: we lost by a fathom
Good news: we have a good new team name

It's okay! Every loss validates our not-actually-rigged-to-win reputation.

It wasn't a total blowout, but I felt like many of tonight's questions were not a fair test of knowledge. Sure, Apollo 13 everyone should know, and we hella nerded our way into Coney Island, but the Bureau of Standards can suck eggs if the they think the speed of an electron is somehow more precise than a photon. How do you even measure that without killing a cat?

More brains are needed next week.

...should be the team name.
