"I couldn't believe it! I was totally oblivious. I have no idea how [the assassin] knew I would be there!!! It was only a light tap of a black sock at 245 PM today inside Goldwin Smith, and blood went everywhere. WTF??"

Rahul Tonk
Time of death: April 7, 2004 1:25 PM
Rahul Tonk led a humble life, and died a noble death taking pies in the face for the "Pie a Pi Kapp" fund raiser. His assassin tracked him down using his away message, which invited friends (and apparently, foes) to pie him in the face as a donation to PUSH America. As a glint of compassion in an otherwise cold heart, the assassin made a donation to the charity. The only difference was, the donation was made with a sock to the face instead of a delicious, nutritious pie.

Matthew Tucker
Time of death: April 7, 2004 8:15 PM
"The Workingpeoples of the world today suffered a tremendous blow when socialist organizer and agitator Matt Tucker was struck down by a counterrevolutionary assassin at 815 p.m. in the Cascadeli. He was on his way back from a trip to the restroom when his escort left him and he was socked through the left shoulder. His last words were reported as being "long live the Internationale!"

Benjamin Weber
Time of death: April 16, 2004 11:05 AM
In a frame F, Benjamin is moving at a relativistic speed vx in the x direction. A sock is also moving in this frame, with a velocity vn>>vx. In the lab frame at t=0, Benjamin and the sock are a distance L apart. t=t'=0 is the the time when Benjamin passes the origin. Treat Benjamin and the sock as particles.
a) At what time, in the lab frame, will Benjamin be hit by the sock?
b) What about in the rest frame of Benjamin? The rest frame of the sock?
c) If Benjamin has a radial magnetic field E0' in his rest frame, what is the force on the sock due to the Benjamin's magnetic field in the lab frame?
d) Is there a frame where the sock would not have hit Benjamin? Explain.
e) Is there a frame where the sock would appear as a croissant? Explain.

"It seemed as if s/he was doing me a favor, it was even someone I knew. Alas, that's what happens you get in someone else's car; all it takes it one little sock and you're dead. See mom and dad, that's why you should have let me take the car with me!" The body of Lisa Allyson Schlitt was found in the back seat of a car in the lot behind Appel Commons. The apparent cause of death was a white sock found next to the body. Philantropist, scientist, Nobel laureate, friend, and daughter, Lisa will be missed by the entire nation and Cornell community."

"Dena was tragically assassinated on Wednesday April 21st at 907 PM. Her death was no accident. She was set up by a wo/man she thought would be her fellow brother and friend. She feels at this time that it is inappropriate to speak of his/her name, but would like others to know to beware of him/her. She had not last words, but died with an expression of sheer shock. May she rest in peace, or otherwise viciously haunt her assassin. "

Rin: You're out of line, KalcKid!! Is there a second?
Moose: Second!
Rin: The motion has been seconded! Is there any discussion? (Sees KalcKid raising his hand) (Calls on Tones)
Tones: I think Arjun died unnecessarily and inappropriately. Arjun should have gone out in a blaze of glory at the end of a long and distinguised life...
(KalcKid waves his arms so furiously that strong eddy currents begin to topple brothers. A concerned Rin finally calls on him)
KalcKid: An assassination cannot be annulled. And all judgements regarding assassinations are left to me 'cause I'm the UMPIRE!
(Cat smiles affectionately at KalcKid)
Rin: Any further discussion?
(Diesel and Bhav proceed to restrain Holmes)
Holmes (yelling): (UNINTELLIGIBLE)
(In midst of chaos, Will finds four-day old chicken nuggets on floor--proceeds to eat them)
(Rin slams the gavel and reasserts control)
Rin: Is there any more real discussion??!
Moose: Question!
Rin: Question has been called... any objection to ending discussion?
(Arjun crashes through the windows...)
Arjun: Sorry folks, but KalcKid is right. I died and there's nothing that can be done. But make no mistake. As death is but a door and time but a window--I'll be back!!
(Arjun jumps through window and back into the void)
Tones: How did he do that?!?
Mofo: Isn't it obvious? It was Arjun...
Will: Anyone have any barbeque sauce?

Customer: 'Ello, I wish to register a complaint.
(The owner does not respond.)
C: 'Ello, Miss?
Owner: What do you mean "miss"?
C: I'm sorry, I have a cold. I wish to make a complaint!
O: We're closin' for lunch.
C: Never mind that, my lad. I wish to complain about this Kathy what I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.
O: Oh yes, the, uh, the Norwegian Magenta...What's,uh...What's wrong with 'er?
C: I'll tell you what's wrong with 'er, my lad. She's dead, that's what's wrong with 'er!
O: No, no, she's uh,...she's resting.
C: Look, matey, I know a dead Kathy when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.
O: No no she's not dead, she's, she's restin'! Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Magenta, idn'it, ay? Beautiful plumage!
C: The plumage don't enter into it. She's stone dead.
O: Nononono, no, no! She's resting!
C: All right then, if she's restin', I'll wake 'er up!
(shouting at the cage)
'Ello, Missus Kathy Parrot! I've got a lovely fresh cuttle fish for you if you show...(owner hits the cage)
O: There, she moved!
C: No, she didn't, that was you hitting the cage!
O: I never!!
C: Yes, you did!
O: I never, never did anything...
C: (yelling and hitting the cage repeatedly) 'ELLO KATHY!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!
(Takes Kathy out of the cage and thumps its head on the counter. Throws it up in the air and watches it plummet to the floor.)
C: Now that's what I call a dead Kathy.
O: No, no.....No, she's stunned!
O: Yeah! You stunned 'er, just as she was wakin' up! Norwegian Magentas stun easily, major.
C: Um...now look...now look, mate, I've definitely 'ad enough of this. That Kathy is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not 'alf an hour ago, you assured me that 'er total lack of movement was due to 'er bein' tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.
O: Well, he's...she's, ah...probably pining for the fjords.
C: PININ' for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did she fall flat on his back the moment I got 'er home?
O: The Norwegian Magenta prefers kippin' on it's back! Remarkable bird, id'nit, squire? Lovely plumage!
C: Look, I took the liberty of examining that Kathy when I got her home, and I discovered the only reason that she had been sitting on her perch in the first place was that she had been NAILED there.
O: Well, o'course she was nailed there! If I hadn't nailed that bird down, she would have nuzzled up to those bars, bent 'em apart with her beak, and VOOM! Feeweeweewee!
C: "VOOM"?!? Mate, this bird wouldn't "voom" if you put four million volts through her! She's bleedin' demised!
O: No no! She's pining!
C: Whe's not pinin'! She's passed on! This Kathy is no more! She has ceased to be! She's expired and gone to meet her maker! She's a stiff! Bereft of life, she rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed her to the perch she'd be pushing up the daisies! Her metabolic processes are now 'istory! She's off the twig! She's kicked the bucket, she's shuffled off 'ermortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-KATHY!! !"

"I had no information on who my assassin was, but the first time I caught a glance of him/her while walking up the stairs to a PSP meeting I knew that he/she was pure evil. He/she had an glint in his/her eye, and although I reciprocated his/her outward gestures of friendship, I knew in my heart that it was all plotting, plotting, plotting...plotting away at my demise. I saw him/her sitting in my music classroom the day of my death. I could have not walked in and saved myself, but 'a life lived in fear is a life half-lived'. We both knew what the other wanted. I shifted my seat closest to the door in the hopes of a desperate escape. He/she sat next to me. There was not a potential witness in sight. I was doomed. Worst of all, he/she ENJOYED the class! The least that could have happened would be for him/her to have SUFFERED for the kill. Oh well. I'll mourn my naive hopes of dominating the game, and pray for the unlucky soul to be struck next by such a heartless creature. Sweet world, adieu!"

"At least my assassin was made to suffer.... he/she had to carry large bottles of water from my aparment to my car, and as I sat, slumped over the drivers wheel of my blood-stained car, I was able to get some amount of revenge, as I kicked my assassin out of my car to walk to Uris to meet for field day. True to my word, even in my last moments, anyone who takes my life is banned from my car."

"Silent like the night
Swift as the wind
It came after me so suddenly that I didn’t even have time to react
I stood, face to face with my assassin,
Unbelief crossing my face
And then relief!
I could finally lead a peaceful life, even if in the other world
I had cheated death for too long
And now I couldn’t escape it
I closed my eyes, taking with me the image of my
assassin, wickedly smiling…already planning, the death of his/her next victim!"

He was proclaimed an international kazoo sensation in 1987, and produced two platinum albums, 'Kazoomin' Fun' and 'Cowzoo', based on his personal experiences. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992 for advancing the efficiency of rubber ducky production. He is also well known for his charitable contributions to the eraser recycling organization. Beginning in 1999, Ian spent 7 years in prison for illegally ripping mattress tags. He is survived by his loving wife of 26 years and 8 children, Aeneas, Neoptolomus, Caligula, Dido, Philomela, Oedipus, Athena, and Dionysus. He will be lovingly missed. His last words were "I should have kept the sock. It was a nice sock." The puppy's name was Spot. He is currently recovering in Bacon Hill Veterinary Hospital."

Mike McCabe
Time of Death: April 27, 2003, Early Afternoon
"With the last of my strength, I leave the tale of my demise so it may be a warning for those to come.

I left the meeting with two body guards and pursued by my vile assassin and her undead minion. As we came to the engineering quad, I watched silently as my assassin headed into the quad for no apparent reason. Left to my own thoughts, I could only think that they meant to get ahead of me by running down a parallel route. However, I continued my journey home and weighed my options for possible escapes. As I passed Cascadilla, I left my final body guard on a perch to witness any treachery, but none came. I made my way down Eddy St. at a quick jog, wondering whether to switch sides of the street or backtrack and enter my house from the rear. In my hurried state, I became greedy and complacent and stayed on the straight line course pondering why my assassin had broken off so early. Then, a block from my house, my assassin appeared from behind a bush and rushed at me. With both of us running there was no chance for thought, but I found I had raised my arm to parry her dagger with my sweatshirt. I was past my assassin and thinking that I had avoided disaster and only needed to run to my door, when I felt the poison starting to spread through my shoulder. My assassin had deftly struck a blow with a concealed and poisoned dagger. As I was left for dead a block away from my house, I discovered the answer to my question. I witnessed my assassin get into a car driven by her undead minion and I realized that with rapid transport I had no way of making it home first.

Alas I am dead for not taking the back door, but perhaps it is for the best, for now my soul may rest easily as I attempt to pass this final week."

"Nefarious. It was all nefarious. A legacy was shattered by a duo of pure evil, taking out my big, and then me. I perished at the hand of evil, on a dark and rainy day. I missed, from only a few feet away, as did she. My sock laid only a few steps away, but she was closer to it and quicker to snatch it up. She lunged at me with glee, and then it was all over. Many were saddened by the tragic death, and much depressed by the irony that I perished by my own sock. What a twisted victory."

I looked down, only to see the deadly weapon had impaled me right through the heart. I yelled, but no sound came from my lips, only blood. The last thing I remember is a faint chuckle, as if my attacker was slightly amused at the ease of the kill. And the worst part is, I was going to a *government* class. I'm an engineer, dammit!

"Twas a dark and misty morning (Sunny with a high of 65), and betrayal was on the air. A fellow CS major revealed my location to my stalker. The fiend lay in wait, guarding the entrance to my class, but I saw it and fled before it looked up from its devilry! My downfall lay in my impatience, for if I had waited only another minute, the creature would have slunk back into the slimy pit it came from. But no! I chose to attempt trickery, and enter from another direction. Predicting my every movement, it changed to a better location, and when I arose from the secret tunnel, it saw me and leapt! I dodged, quicker even than the fell creature, but to my dismay an iron gate blocked my escape. I jumped, and while in the air the awful creature discharged it's attack, impaling my leg. As I lay on the hard ground, my life's blood pumping from the grievous wound, the creature looked down at me, laughing, laughing, laughing..."

A few pleasantries were exchanged - we both new why s/he was here, no need to make it rude - and after a futile attempt to beg for mercy s/he withdrew his/her weapon and nonchalantly reached over and impaled me in the chest.

Life is too short, so kill the one you got

Never started to panic- I thought I was the best.
Wish I coulda played with a sockproof vest.
Take a small example, take a tip from me-
take all of your socks and throw em at the conspiracy.
Killed's what I got, life's out of my reach-

It all comes back to you you're bound to get what you deserve.
Try and test that, you're bound to get served.

"Paranoia was in the air, as my last guardian had perished, and the dead offer no protection. I had discovered who would bring about my demise minutes before s/he carried out the terrible deed. I was one of the final 10 survivors, constructing elaborate plans to protect myself until the next target shuffle, but confident that I would survive. Yet, vigilant as I was, I failed to hear my assassin's silent, swift approach from behind. When I heard the demonic voice call my name, I tried desperately to escape...but realized it was too late when I felt the death-grip on my arm and spied the dark instrument of torture. Now I can take comfort in the fact that I lived a long, productive live, but beware! The killer still walks the streets, armed and dangerous...

Though in the back of my mind lay a nagging suspicion that my stalker was still out there, and could have been eavesdropping while I politely asked the deli lady to put tunafish on my bagel, I ignored it when I successfully returned to my table, assuming I was safe and unnoticed. Nonetheless, I had one more mission: Seizing some apple juice. It was no easy task, mind you, but it had to be done; I couldn't bear the thought of eating my lunch without a cool drink in my hand. Thirst - 'twas my fatal downfall. As i turned the corner and neared my destination, I felt almost sure that i would be safe within the confines, hidden from view. With my back turned, the UNthinkable happened...and happened so fast...BAM!.......UMPH! The immediate impact caused me to lose my balance; my head spun back. I turned and stared at my assassin - dead in the eye - then looked down. There in the pit of my stomach, evilly tucked within [his/her/its] clenched fingers, was the devious black sock [it had stripes too]. I looked up and sent a wailing scream of which only those who experienced a similar fate could feel the painful depths. I had been the target of a conspiracy! A CONSPIRACY! Yes, there is a small faction among us that is conspiring against us all! Beware! They are watching....don't let them get to you.....like they got to me..."

"Earlier this morning, as I was sitting in my class, an inexplicable freezing grip seized my heart, and suddenly I was full of unreasonable fear. It lasted for only a few seconds, but I should have known -- it was a sign from above that today I would be gone. As I was leaving class, surrounded by faithful friends (but alas, they were not part of PSP and couldn't have saved me!), my tummy pleasantly full after a healthy, nutritious lunch, I could only think of pleasant things in life: finishing a thesis paper for next day, executing my mastermind assassination plan, basking in the sun... and then, out of nowhere, I heard my name called, and someone'd tapped me on the shoulder. I looked in confusion as my assassin slowly unveiled "its" hand to reveal... a pale sock, neatly rolled into a ball to inflict the most damage, and thoroughly bloodstained from previous murders [maybe?]. My eyes wide open with horror and disbelief, I slowly sunk to the floor, clutching at the wall, gasping my last few breaths of precious air, incredulous at being cut down at such a young and tender age... with murky eyes, I gazed up at my assassin, querying limply - why?... why?... And then I was no more.."

Il tradimento, la pazzia, la cospirazione!"

"Sad, dejected, and betrayed; my scruples took a mighty blow that only the untesticulated could fling against me. The last vestiges of my manhood have been splattered and my inner woman weeps softly. I was lured into the tepid depths, the warm walls seemingly undulating, titillating my body. I shuddered as my virginal, feminine self took to the damp maternal darkness, feeding off the languid odors. This bliss was shattered by the dry and painful thrust that took my innocence, gently tearing at the flesh of my naivete. In that torrid moment of unabashed violation, my eyes met those of my perpetrator and I saw the cold depths of the human heart. God help me."

"Friends, a tragic event has occurred today. After spending many days and many nights lost in Balch, alas, all was but wasted in a moment. For those of you still alive, I have but one piece of advice: A wise man once told me something...but I'll be damned if I know what it was, 'cause I wasn't paying any attention. Oh yes, it was... friend, do not try to borrow combs from shaven monks. Instead, speak softly and carry a big sock."

"It came for me as I was sitting down at dinner. My two undead bodyguards tried to restrain [it], but it was to no avail. Trapped between two tables and a window (through which I could see my dorm... my safe haven), I knew my time was up. Like a thing possessed, [it] ripped one hand out of my big's restraining grip and plunged the sock into my left shoulder. Strangely I felt no fear as I looked into its [face]. Dizzy and breathless, I slumped against the table while my life ebbed away. My only regret is being unable to tell people that the [thing] they feared as children does, in fact, exist. But it's not confined to underneath the bed or the closet--it roams Cornell even now in search of its next victim."

"I knew it was coming, fate is inevitable. I did not cower, I did not hide. I took the massacre in stride. Indeed, I prepared for the worst. With sock bandana whipping in the International Lounge wind, I knew the end would come quickly but little did I know that the pain would be so intense. I have no dishonor in my death. I stand tall knowing that I gave my life for the betterment of the fraternity."

We shall see what kind of fun this year will bring...... >: )
