Dear 100 Hour Board,

How good do you think Infinity War is going to be? I've been re-watching the previous marvel movies, and I realize now that they just don't seem as good as when they first came out, is Infinity war really going to be as good as it's hyped to be?

-My Name Here

A:

Dear My Name Here,

I think that seeing Infinity War the first time is going to be waaaay good. Seeing it the second, third, and 4th times in your house? Probably not going to be as good. A big part of action movies like The Avengers are the effects, the hype, the suspense, and the surprises. Repeat viewings aren't going to be as cool because you already know what's going to happen and the explosions won't be 50 ft tall.

As to whether or not it's going to be as good as it's hyped to be, I think that depends on what your personal hype and expectations. If you go expecting it to be the best movie ever and it isn't then it won't be as good as the hype. If you go because you're super excited to see all your favorite superheros destroy stuff then you'll probably really enjoy the movie. Personally, I'm super hyped for the movie and I think that it's going to be totally legit. Maybe it's not your cup of tea (cough cough Sheebs), but I think it's going to be awesome.

Peace,

Tipperary

Dear MNH,

I don't really have any strong feelings about Marvel, whether positive or negative. I just came on here to add this:

Dear person,

It will be overrated like all the superhero movies.

-Negative Sheebs

A:

Dear you,

I am far from an expert on Marvel, as there are a number of recent movies that I haven't seen, and that I should probably catch up on before seeing Infinity War. But I finally saw Black Panther last night, and it was much better than many recent superhero movies, and it gives me hope that Marvel is moving towards more compelling stories and less gratuitous smashing.

Love,

Luciana

Dear Frère Rubik,

ARE YOU GOING TO TELL THE BOARD WE ARE ENGAGED OR WHAT!?

Love,

Vienna

A:

Dearest, Darling Vienna,

What. 

-Frère Rubik

A:

Dear Vienna,

Kidding! I’m just kidding! 

HEY EVERYONE! VIENNA AND I HAVE BEEN DATING SINCE LIKE LAST APRIL AND WE'RE GONNA GET MARRIED SOON!

That's right, folks: one of the Board's kindest, funniest, most loving and compassionate writers has decided to marry probably the Board's most Rubik-iest writer. 

How on earth did I get to be so lucky, you ask? It's simple, really: I successfully defeated Chris Pratt in a taco-eating contest on top of the Empire State Building. Why she had us hold the contest there, I don't know (it was very cold and windy and the cilantro kept flying off of my tacos), but we went along with it because she is totally worth it.

I don't want to overly gush, but Vienna is amazing. She is so amazingly kind and loving and supportive and funny and great. She feels special to me in a way that no one else has before. She makes me so much better.

Plus, I mean, she's really pretty, guys:

What did I tell you? Drop-dead gorgeous. And I get to be with her forever.

-Frère Lovestruck

P.S. The reason it took so long, Vienna, is because I got lost in your eyes every time I tried to draw a paper bag over them.

P.P.S. Ok so yeah technically the real reason it took so long is because this semester has been absolutely crazy with graduating and wedding planning and whatnot but I'm serious about those eyes of yours, chica. They are DREAMY.

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two?

Obviously not a very nice person.

Dear Chuck,

I just want to say that I absolutely loved the use of "Pure Imagination" in Thor: Ragnarok and ever since I saw that movie back in November I find myself singing/humming it from time to time.

-Frère Rubik

A:

Dear Charles,

I mean, I kind of prefer sunrises as they are, and not covered in brown goop.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the coolest secret, factoid, or useful tip you know about the Harold B. Lee Library? I spend lots of time there, but sometimes I feel like I am not aware of all it has to offer.

-A curious bookworm

A:

Dear Curious,

Probably the coolest thing about the Library is that every Friday at noon there is a Reading Series where different authors and poets come and share their work. After they read there is a question-and-answer session and then you get to go to Special Collections and eat free cookies! It's one of my favorite BYU memories/traditions.

I don't know if the Reading Series goes on during Spring/Summer, but if not, you should definitely check it out next Fall!

-Frère Rubik

A:

Dear ACB,

Did you know that 8 out of 5 dentists think studying in the library is six bajillion times better than studying in your shower?

The library is a magical place. Before I was a student I'd drive down to BYU with my friends to just explore the library. There are an infinite amount of cool factoids about the library, but you just asked for 1, so I'll only give you 3.

1. 4th Floor Organs:

 IMG_1441.JPG

On the 4th floor of the library you can jam out on keyboards and organs to test out music before you check it out. Not only is this good for checking out music, but if you ever get bored you can stand behind them a few aisles over and watch them silently jamming out. It's pretty hilarious. Unfortunately I was unable to capture such antics on my camera.

2. Cool Old Books:

IMG_1438.JPG

There are books on so many topics that in high school I used to go to the library with friends just to read book covers.. On the second floor there are a bunch of really cool math and science books. I love to read the covers I have no idea what they're talking about. I think this pretty much has to be the coolest book out there. You might not be able to see it, but the main author is Erno Rubik, the inventor of the Rubik cube. Pretty cool right?

3. Best Pencil Sharpener Ever:

IMG_1442.jpg
This pencil sharpener on the 5th floor humanities help desk is by far the best pencil sharpener on campus. It is on point. Even though I study on the 2nd floor, I walk up to the 5th floor to sharpen my pencil because this pencil sharpener works so well it makes me smile.

The library is chock full of secrets. Here's a few to start, but I'm sure that you'll find many more. Adventure is out there!

Peace,

Tipperary
