That Fish Cray

Rankmaniac 2012

rankmaniac 2012

I know way to perpetuate a stereotype. It's hard enough when they commit cray on cray crime. Look we all know crustaceans aren't very smart. They are known to be very gullible and will fall for anything. Plus with a sea full of  boats coming after them they face long odds. If only they didn't taste so good...

Caltech freshman

Rankmaniac 2012

rankmaniac 2012
This applies to MIT and most engineering schools as well. When I talked to my sister, who goes to Smith College, she said that the guys at MIT were "the most hideous people on the planet". While probably an overstatement you probably shouldn't throw stones when you live in a glass house. And considering how the people who say this look, lets hope the glass isn't see-through.

noooo don't go! keep reading our blog

Don't leave us! We are almost ranked and still need your help. We are losing to this kid. If we don't pass them then we are going to need lots of these to cope. Not to mention we will probably be worse than the Patriot fans last week. Well not as bad as this fan. That is always too far.

Caltech in a nutshell

rankmaniac 2012
Freshman year they asked us prove (-1) (-1) = 1. It sounds easy but I where do you start? Since it was only a problem set I thought about not doing it. Everyone else was confused except for the few kids just at another level than us. When asking the TA's for help they were very helpful but left me confused when they tried to explain it. When I got my paper back it was destroyed with pen marks everywhere. Basically, math doesn't make sense.

Caltech Shot Glasses

rankmaniac 2012
Here is the design for shot glasses that I am trying to make for Caltech Basketball. Which phrase is best: "Win or Lose... We Booze", "Make Every Shot Count", or "Here there is no such thing as a Bad Shot" . If you have any better phrases or critiques let me know in the comments. Also, remember to check out Gangsta Bo.

Sleepy kitten train!

rankmaniac 2012  
I know not the train you were thinking of. But these cats are so lazy. Probably dreaming about either eating, drinking, or spending time with their best friend. Alright two of those were the same.


Check out Gangsta Bo!

Wish we had one of these at Caltech

But we do have this kid

So true..

rankmaniac 2012
It's tough to even pretend... this post sucks. So close.. not at all. The fact that this represents us makes me depressed. It never had a caption because there is nothing remotely funny to say. The only inspiration I have is to post irrelevant links. I can get behind eating fish though. Here are the links to a boat and fishing water.

Are you bored? Pop bubble wrap.

Try out this game that is a COMPLETE waste of time and tells you this the whole time. :)
Really this game is completely pointless. Almost like someone whose life revolves around Dota.
If not create your own meme's here.

Snow!


Who doesn't want to make a snowman with this guy?

rankmaniac 2012

Well besides the fact that he seems rather fond of that snowball. Seriously, I would avoid him at all costs but I'm not very tough. With all that said I would still take Nala in the fight. Speaking of which why does Nala need Simba's help if she is stronger than him? Such obvious plot holes.

Overly Helpful Giraffe


rankmaniac 2012 helpful giraffe
This giraffe is a true bro and always supportive no matter how ridiculous the things you say/do. Like a true friend he will not shy away from you in the face of danger. Any secret would be safe with him. Basically, just someone you can count on despite how many of these you take. Just a real good guy who wouldn't screw you over like him.

awwww

This little guy seems to really be enjoying the melon. This must be what he can afford to do with all the Geico commercials focusing on the Cavemen now.

Super Bowl Reactions


The following are a collection of links that contain the tears of all Patriot fans:

First we have Giselle firing off about the loss.
Next is Wes Welker reliving his drop.
A not so local company showing support for Welker. 
How his teammates got over the loss.
Some tips on how to move along in life.
Some quick quotes by the team.
New York gloating over Patriot miscues.
This is UMass after the loss. And the video of the riot.
Some other locals feeling despair.
Always a good source for tears after a Pats loss is Bill Simmons.
Other teams players' reactions.
Finally, not related at all but here is a guy who hates money but ended up winning lots of it.

Oh and Rex Ryan being prophetic (okay that one is a joke).

I live in fear

rankmaniac 2012
For the record I don't believe any of this is true but it's cool to hate on Bieber now so I am jumping on that wagon. Here are the list of things I would rather do than listen to Bieber: drink ugly water (I would have to take it like shots), play with a cat, eat him with the shell, have this happen to me, play dota, or lose the Super Bowl.

As cool as this is, he is still not cooler than this guy.

Drinking Water

rankmaniac 2012 gross drinking water
Here is the water that my brother and I were forced to drink out fishing. This was the worst colored water of them all. As we looked at the water the guy who gave it to us claimed "that's just the minerals".

Dota 2 Game 6

Another loss.  Was a pretty even game then we had one player pushing every lane alone while their whole team killed the rest of us.  That's what happens in public matches though.  Oh well.

rankmaniac 2012

Dota 2 Game 5

This was actually game 7 but the real games 5 and 6 my game froze and I was forced to shut down the game before we even got past the early game.  So this is my 5th finished game.  From now on I'll only post games that I finish.  I definitely felt much more confident this game.  I also had a good lane partner though so that was good.  Looking forward to game 6.

The next Michael Vick, and he's only 5


 
Watch this 5 year old dodge and break tackle after tackle. He makes the defense look like a bunch of toddlers. The juke at 4:30 is just unfair. He just has so much swag. Let the college recruitment begin.



From My Fellow Techers

A few of my fellow classmates discussing their feelings on a current class at Caltech that is the subject of many complaints but they put their complaints into an argument and posted it here.

The resemblance is uncanny...

rankmaniac 2012
Too Easy.

Inspirational

This is a great story of perseverance and the human spirit.  These guys are the real role models.  No matter how bad it gets you just gotta keep pushing on.  I know i'll be looking to see if he gets in this Sunday.

Dota 2 Game 4 WIN!

Finally a win.  Starting to get used to last hitting and playing with the Dragon Knight.  Game is definitely worth getting once it comes out.  Apparently Dota 2 will have 105 heroes on release!!  That's pretty ridiculous.  I can't wait to see the finished product.

How Redditors Attract Each Other

rankmaniac 2012

Everyone on Facebook

Over half of all Facebook statuses are worthless. If we took out all the people who use random quotes or just making a generic statement to nobody then everyone's news feed would be a lot more open.

The Mighty O

rankmaniac 2012
Saw this in the Whittier, Alaska harbor back in September.  You would think Phil Knight would be able to afford a better slip. Not only that, but does the "O" stand for Oregon, or Offense?

Yet Another Loss...

I just can't seem to win anything these last few days...  Well you can't say I'm not persistent.

rankmaniac 2012

Dota 2 Game 2

Ok, I kinda got dominated this game.  I got behind early since my lane had 2 long ranged champs so my farm was pretty down.  Plus the other teams Vyper was roaming everywhere and once he slowed me I couldn't get away.  I learned from another player that I need to rush a vanguard when that happens.  I'll try that next match.

If you park like this...your day is worse than mine

The last day of fishing for my brother and I ended when my brother dumped our anchor over the side of the boat. Without an anchor we were forced to call it a season a couple of weeks early. When we got back to port we saw this boat and thought... well it could be worse.

Dota2 Game 1

So this was actually game 2 since I played one vs bots to start but they totally crushed me.  I'm starting to get used to the speed of attacking and the flow of the game but I still need some experience with item purchases and such.  Also using the courier is kind of confusing to me.  Game is a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to getting better.

Man this place sucks. What a terrible bowl. Whoa... what's over there? It looks a lot better than this place. If I could just get over this wall I could get a better view. Here we go, got my flippers just over the top. Now I can just hoist myself over the edge and....shoot. Where did the lights go? Guys! Guys! This isn't funny! Where did everyone go?

PICTURE FROM PALLAVI!!!

VS Pomona 2-1-12

The game started off as a defensive battle. Slowly, we started to be able to hit some 3's and get some breathing room. Holding Pomona to 26% shooting let us get out to a double digit lead. Pomona put together a late rally, but it wasn't enough. When the buzzer sounded we had kept our lead at 6... going into halftime.  Second half we didn't play out as well. Pomona started on an 11-0 run to take the lead. Sloppy play in transition as well as poor offense cost us the lead.  Andrew Hogue hit some great 3's to keep us in the game but the lead kept increasing. In the end Pomona held on for the 55-48 win. Let's hear from all of you about how you thought the game went whether you watched it live or online.  Leave a post below about the game and subscribe to our blog using the RSS button near the top right.

Here is Bo walking around the Mall of America. He is just oozing swag right now and we all know that true gangstas roll with Mario. Plus, you can just tell that he is not a Caltech freshman and even though he refuses to use these... he is still a great guy. Follow all his exploits here.

For Our Class

We're creating this blog for our class CS 144: Ideas Behind the Web.  This blog is the start of a competition called Rank Maniac.  Working in groups, the goal of this competition is to have our website/blog have an image which is the first entry under the images tab of google when the phrase "rankmaniac 2012" is searched (without the quotes).  We have until February 15 at noon to increase our rank as much as possible.  Anyone who happens to read this if you could feature a link to this page it will increase our rank.  Also share this link with your friends and get them in on it too.  The better our rank the better our grade.

Thanks,
Michael, Collin, Stephen, and Jessica
