Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why did BYU switch Intramurals season play from being divisions (beg, intermediate, and advanced) to just being open? I've heard it's to help with seeding, but I feel like more problems arose from the change. Anyone else concerned with the change or have any ideas about how to still have fun when playing semi-pro teams?

Dear quidditch world cup,

It doesn't look like any of us knows about this, sorry.

Sorry this is late. I was talking to people on my intramural team about this today. They switched it when they stopped allowing UVU students. Some of the team members thought they just didn't have as many teams without UVU students. Also, in the past many tough teams would play down just to be more competitive, so it was still an issue. This year has been pretty bad though. I can commiserate with you about that.<br><br>-Tipperary, whose intramural team has gotten destroyed every game

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I am a huge HUGE fan of the BYU academic planners that they sell at the on-campus bookstore every year. I just love the way the planner is set up, with a monthly layout, then each week spread across two pages and the days broken up into 1/2 hour lines. The layout has just really helped me to stay organized and plan out my time each week in a very visual way where I can recognize when I will be really busy and when I will have some downtime to work on other projects.

Aaaaanyways, as you can see, I really love having this planner in my life.

The only problem is that I graduated from BYU this past August, and I realized that I wanted another planner for this year. Unfortunately, I can't go down to the BYU Store and get a planner; so I asked my sister, who is still attending BYU, to buy one for me and ship it out to me.

Only to my dismay, the planners were all sold-out! As of like, a week ago, when she checked.

I tried to see if I could order them online, but I found nothing on the BYU online store.

My question is- is there any sort of planner that I could order online that is close to the layout of the BYU academic planner?? I can't be the only person who loves the layout of this planner. The main things I am looking for are what I previously mentioned- a one-page layout of the whole month, then each week spread across two pages, and the days broken up into 1/2 hour slots.

Please help me out!! Thank you!

Dear same,

Oh my word I feel your pain. I absolutely love the BYU planners and don't know what I'll do without them. I've also done a bit of hunting around Walmart for something similar and never found anything quite the same. But I quickly realized possibly the best website to have random information on things to buy:Buzzfeed. And I'm proud to report that after filling out 12 surveys and discovering I am, indeed, an introverted princess destined to fall in love with four men on the same day, I found this and this! Not all of them work, but some are pretty close to what you want! You could also choose one of these. If you want to look up more stuff on amazon, look up "appointment books" and "academic planner".

Hopefully those fit your scheduling needs!

Dear 100 Hour Board,

So I was on my weekly internet walkabout when I found out about an intriguing off-shoot of the mainstream LDS faith, called the Church of Potter Christ.

Started by Arnold Potter, he came to believe he was the reincarnation of Christ, or that the Spirit of Christ came to inhabit his body, making him the Messiah.

What interested me is that he is said to have written a book of revelations and prophesies. Are these writings still extant, and able to be read today?

I figure if anyonwe knows the answer, it's going to be someone at BYU.

If you can't get me a source on the writings, at best would you be able to give me a synopsis or overview on his writings? Both would be appreciated, but one is better than none.

Thanks!

Dear Heretic,

This site has a photocopy of the start of a pamphlet prepared to go before his book, The Midnight Cry. I couldn't find anything about that book online so I'm guessing he never completed it or it was lost to history. Here's some of the best stuff from the pamphlet though:

  • He received the title of Christ (he was the "last Adam") by turning his body into a spiritual body in three days. He basically lost all his blood and then the spirit of Christ entered into him. The three witnesses visited him and told him he was the immortal Christ, the Son of God.
  • He was a millenarian - he believed he would usher in the Millennium. 
  • A holy angel named Maroni visited him. Talk about a copyright infringement.
  • Actually that Maroni may have been meant to be Moroni - this angel tells Potter how Joseph Smith was sent to open the sixth dispensation of the gospel in earth and, after his death, in Hades
  • Interesting LDS history tidbit: He mentions the conflict after Joseph's death, with Brigham Young, Sydney Rigdon, Joseph's son, and Hedrickson fighting over the position of prophet. Of course Potter claims he's the true successor.
  • He wrote a celestial book that contained the celestial law (he only hinted at what exactly it was).
  • His father is Jesus Abraham who dwells in the sun, which is a celestial planet
  • He'll visit his father in the sun for 11 months and then come back, opening the sixth seal, redeeming Zion's land in Jackson County, and gathering Israel. Then we get the classic Millennium.
  • There will soon be a war worse than the Civil War, caused by the Cuba question and the Alabama claims (?) in the 1870s. President Grant will be the last president elected by the ballot. The U.S. will be broken into three pieces. 

Most everything else I found was summarized by the wikipedia article you linked to. Apparently he's mentioned in this but for some reason my student access is having issues (hopefully not because I graduated and they realized I'm not part of the system anymore).

Interesting fellow though!
