Computrainer class takes blue pill

Choosing the blue pill Friday, a team of CAC members simulated a a bike ride in a small, dark room where their legs’ power output was digitally reproduced in a fictional, unblemished universe where better-looking avatars competed for top speeds on illusory roads. As cyclist Tonhee Rolls plugged into the computer system Friday, she explained the choice. ”First of all, I don’t eat red dye number 5. Second, the blue pill? Guess what? Zero carbs.”

NCAR scientists get loose

When four scientists slipped out from behind their triple screen monitors Tuesday, most of their co-workers thought they were going to the cafeteria for coffee, or maybe a plastic container of instant pudding.”I never would have imagined that they would just walk out of the building like that, in broad daylight, no NCAR mini-bus in sight,” said Hal Shephard, Deputy Lead Project Manager with the Department of Atmospheric Science. “I just hope that they take advantage of this break to have a good time, get some drinks and maybe do a little shopping at the wizard store.”

Stoner losers Aaron Pollack and Luke Adams spent most of Sunday destroying American ideals and traditional values as they smoked a joint and watched Big Lebowski. “I feel like I could sit here all afternoon and relax,” said Adams, shifting some of the pillows around and taking a drink of tea.
