Book Contest Winners
The book contest has now been running for a week, and I got a lot of great responses. It was pretty tough making a decision (and any choice like this is bound to be somewhat random), but I finally opted to award a book to 'Redmond' for his account of the brownies with the secret added ingredient that turns urine blue. I'm also giving a book to Quentin Smith for his description of how they filled a school administrator's office from floor to ceiling with shredded paper (in order to give him a little more paperwork). The photographic evidence of the prank being pulled was great. So thanks to everyone for contributing their stories, and if you didn't win, don't worry. I think I'm going to have some more stuff to give away pretty soon.

I should drink some methylene blue

Methylene blue is sometimes used as an antiseptic for aquarium fish. I have a bottle of it, if anyone's feeling thirsty. Of course, I have no idea if it's safe to drink for humans-- my hunch would be probably not. Maybe I'll just save it for my fish.
