I have a memory of Jim Sernovitz wandering around with a shorted-out extension cord and tripping all of the circuit breakers in the physics classroom to confuse the physics teacher.

The only other memory I have is how bad the macaroni and cheese lunch was.

Hey knucklehead. What have you been up to? John Stegeman came from CO to Milwaukee in June and we shared a lot of good memories of the old motorcycling days.
Talk to me, son.
