Egg Drop Conclusion

Once upon a time I thought I’d write my egg drop contest build log here.  I did, too, at least the one day I worked on it.  The night before the drop I finally got my act together and built the dang thing.

That isn’t to say that I didn’t work on  the contest in the mean time.  Every day I was using psychological warfare, trying to scare my enemies with my confidence.  After all, I was building a rocket heading straight into the ground with no parachutes, their padded boxes had no chance!

Turns out the contest was judged on two aspects: survival and style.  When my egg remained intact (Holy crap!  It worked!)  the style of a rocket won the hearts of the judges, and I tied for first place.  Since the other contender was one of the three highest ranking people in the paper, I was given the prize.

Unfortunately, to me that bragging I did suddenly sounded a bit, well, evil.  I tried to apologize, most people didn’t take offense.

Thanks to all the competitors I squashed in the process!
