Pumpkin Drop tonight! (10/30)
Let me tell you the haunting tale of... RATGHOST! Half-rat, half-ghost, this guy zips and darts in the most unlikeliest of places, stealing food, candy, and come time, your very soul. He (or she, us scientists remain ever skeptics) may have originally been a rat, but he has transformed into something more. He lords over the other rats, always fighting to over throw the tyrannical yoke of the human race. The ratghost constellation (known to some as simply a part of Canis Major, although those people are silly. How can a dog eat ratghost?) watches over us all, waiting for the opportune moment to strike! And what better moment than All Hallow's Eve... Eve? To avert the soul-eating crisis that is Ratghostmageddon, we must offer sacrifice to the almighty Ratghost in the form of pumpkins!
That's right, tonight's our pumpkin drop! We'll be building crafts to safely deliver pumpkins to the ground after throwing them off of MS. Should a pumpkin die on its way, the Ratghost will be appeased. Should your pumpkin be saved by your ingeniousitude, the Ratghost will grudgingly accept your scientific wisdom and not eat your soul. The winner will also receive a prize! Because prizes are cool.
So come one, come all, to the pumpkin drop! Tonight, 7:30, in Knudsen 2-222. Free food as always! Unfortunately, the telescope is closed for repairs, but if stars are out, we can tell spooky made-up myths of the constellations in the sky. Because that's how we roll.
