    Especially if you call that work. Somehow I never checked last night's smoking journal. Sorry! No excuse!

    Old Gowrie in the 811 again, this time DGT'ed overnight - very nice.
    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    Virtual crossposting from the night thread, I'm here to report on some Royal Yacht burning in the Darth Rader. Very nice. Early round today, then on to Utica, Oriskany, and suntan.

    My stomach wasn't too happy today, so I wanted something mild but without even a hint of sweetness so I popped open a jar of Walnut. It is not one of my favorite tobaccos, but was just what the doctor ordered today.

    No, that's me working my fool head off all semester! Passed easily, now on to tomorrow's tests: Microbial Physiology, Genetics, and Cellular Biology.

    Glad you did well on it, but it's still "different". Had I carried a 100% on every test going into the final but then failed it, I'd have had an F to show for it.

    Just some plain ol' Sugar Barrel this morning.

    When I went through my undergrad in Computer Science at GA Tech nearly everyone was watching the curve and calculating what was needed to yield a C, B or A depending on the class. Curves could be huge depending on the class or professor, especially in the common non-major requirements like Electromagnetism, Differential Equations, etc. Your discussion reminds me of the "good" old days...

    Old Gowrie again, this time in the trusty CG. This blend has been moved into my top 5.

    Marking on a curve is pretty ubiquitous. I'm a bit concerned about it in certain cases. I really don't want to be treated by a doctor who just passed their finals (or perhaps worse - their Viva) on the curve on a result of, say, even 75%. Tough if you suffer from something in the missing 25%...

    Wrong thread, but I tried a "musketball" of Germain's Rich Dark Flake in an S-M Marling's Make Lovat last night. I'll be rubbing out my tobacco in future...

    And quite right too. The pendulum has just started to swing back in the UK towards one-shot final exams again, at least for grade schools. They were finding that students increasingly less well qualified for Further Education with staged and coursework based "exams". Coursework in particular proved itself to be of little use in assessing the true knowledge and potential of people. But then again, the modern view is that we don't want to brand anyone as a "loser". Especially where that is deserved. Coursework helps prevent that.

    Yeah. Luckily, our final was only 300 of 1050 points for the class, the other three tests were 650. A few really good grades on those really took the pressure off.

    What went wrong?

    I'm finding that Old Gowerie and it's semi-rubbed out flakes like to the wadded and stuffed with some authority (almost like a musket ball). Better burn and flavor.

    Just couldn't keep the damned thing alight. No problems in the same pipe when rubbed out. A bit more effort, but I'm happy to put in the work.

    Clearly the pipe was a Barling's Make, not a Marling's Make. Perhaps that was the problem. I can't afford those as they have never been made.

    I'm now awaiting the outrage of all Marling's Make pipe owners...
