    How to Celebrate Graduation

    Well, friends... The end is extremely f___ing nigh: I am graduating from my university with a B.S. in Computer Science with honors (I have to mention the "with honors" part because I just found that out and am exhilarated). So anyhoo, my wife and I are considering what we should do to celebrate. You see, it's been literally a decade since I started college (I graduated from high school in 1996), so this conclusion is something we've both been waiting for and desperately anticipating for a very, very long, long time and, as my lovely wife puts it, "we have to do something f___ing crazy!"

    What did you do when you graduated from college? If you're still in college, what do you plan on doing once you're finished? Ideally, we would do something like a long road trip or flight to the Carubbean, but we require something more local and low budget while still crazy. Should we go to an insane asylum, run naked down the street, rob a bank, etc? Again, what did/will you do?

    congradulations! why not invite some friends over and have an informal party?

    >> Should we go to an insane asylum, run naked down the street, rob a bank, etc?

    anything but that.
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    Vegas, baby, Vegas. I went for an expensive steak dinner.
    The crows maintain that a single crow could destroy the heavens. Doubtless this is so. But it proves nothing against the heavens, for the heavens signify simply: the impossibility of crows.

    I think it's better if you went to an insane asylum... freed them... then let them run down the street and rob a bank.

    congrats lucky...

    If you can take a month off and take a roadtrip across the States. If you can't take so much time off, go to a place you've always wanted to visit.

    Then blow the money in Vegas.


    Otherwise, party like a rock star - coke and hookers. In Vegas.
    There is a difference between tedious and difficult.

    Congratulations lucky!!!!!!

    mmm, I am a goody girl...

    but running naked...

    Well…let's see.

    Well theirs always….

    Hmm maybe you could….

    How about trying….

    HEY LOOK OVER THERE!!!

    ::runs away::







    Psss, psss, this is top secret, but allrigth. I am planning renting a cabana on Ruidoso, and ski the rocks!!!!. Never done that. I think you should try to do something you have never done. I have never skied. Have you done mountain climbing, could be really exciting and it is no that expensive.
    Have I crossed the line?

    Wow!!!! I know something really cool, and I bet most of you people have never done anything close to that. I heard about a place where they rent special bikes for abandoned rail road( with the permission of the owner of the railroad), the coolest is when you get into a bridge , and the unique landscape, so cool *thumbs up*
    plus all the exercise and it is very private.

    @ Lucky ... update us

    I only read the title, and my response is beer.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.

    The title says "How to Celebrate Graduation" not "How to Celebrate being awake".
