    Aw, thanks, guys! Glad you enjoyed it. :roll:

    As in, will there be a test? I suppose I could collaborate with Tani on essay ideas, for those who really miss their college days...

    Sample test question:

    "If a sub-mature Mesonychoteuthis with a mantle length of 2.35 meters departs Wellington for Auckland at 1pm, at a base speed of 15 knots, and a mature Architeuthis with a mantle length of 2.25 meters departs Auckland for Wellington at 1:30pm, at a base speed of 5 knots, how much time will they have to take tea together before arriving at their mutual destinations at 6pm?"

    Oop. Just triggered a bad flashback. Excuse me

    (runs to bathroom)

    Is this an African or European Mesonychoteuthis?
