Default Those were the days, today, December 14th Chat Thread

Those were the days, today, December 14th.

1902 - The "Silverton" set sail from the Bay Area. The ship was about to lay the first telephone cable between San Francisco and Honolulu. The project was completed by January 1, 1903.
1911 - After centuries of unsuccessful expeditions in search of the South Pole, Roald Amundsen and four companions made the discovery this day.

1934 - The first streamlined locomotive, nicknamed the "Commodore Vanderbilt", was introduced by the New York Central Railroad. The locomotive was quite impressive: 228 tons and 4,075 horsepower. The 'bathtub' shroud that gave the "Commodore Vanderbilt" its streamlined appearance was designed by the Case School of Science in Cleveland, Ohio. After an October 1945 collision with a truck at a grade crossing, all the streamlining was removed.

1953 - Sandy Koufax, age 19, was signed by the Brooklyn Dodgers. The kid reportedly had played no more than 20 games of baseball in his entire life. In the next 12 seasons, Koufax posted 167 wins, 87 losses and 2,396 strikeouts, becoming a baseball legend!

1968 - Marvin Gaye was number one in the U.S. with "I Heard It Through the Grapevine". The smash was stuck at the top of the charts all the way through Jan 1969. It turned out to be Gaye’s biggest hit.

1970 - Golfing great Lee Trevino had won only two tournaments during the year; but became the top golf money-winner with $157,037 in earnings for the year.

1985 - America’s winningest high school football coach called it quits this day. Gordon Wood, 71, of Brownwood High School in Central Texas retired after 43 years. Wood sported a career record of 405 wins, 88 losses and 12 ties. The football stadium at Brownwood High has since been rebuilt and named for him.

I actually wish I had homework or something to do besides studying because studying makes me feel dumb and at least with homework I can figure things out and get the brain juices flowing uGH.

Not like it helps or anything; I usually end up tuning it out.

Depending on what you are studying, making flash cards helps.
I can't study with silence

There's this wonderful site called Quizlet that has pre-made flashcards with tests to go along with them.
Been using it, and it helped me with my bio test today.

But ugh finals it's just so hard to study for those.
Music, no music....nothing helps.
