Modem 2007 : A Late Late Post

I was only reminded of doing this post when I was speaking about Pony’s crush at Access…

Modem 2007 was held at Modern School, Vasant Vihar this year, oh I don’t know when. It was an event worth forgetting. Frankly, they didn’t have the mInfrastructure and the mResources (to rip-off from somewhere else which no longer exists online) to conduct an mEvent, and were proud of it. That’s not only it – their standards as far as the quiz is concerned have fallen too. Have a look at the Modem 2002 Quiz prelims. This year’s prelims were a shame, with ultra easy questions. As such, I dunno WHO checked the papers, but none of the biggies like us, MIS (team Bwubwubwuh – geez, I just can’t get it right in writing), or DPS RKP qualified. Tch.

Most people thus had nothing more than watch the chicks of MS VV this year. Not that anyone regretted it, but I wouldn’t mind having a trophy too. Then again, we were reminded of the MS VV teacher whom Pony had a crush on. He’d sent us with a secret mission to get a pic of hers this time, but ah sigh, we failed. Sample The Worst Pick-Up Line of the Century that Pony made last year…

Pony (going up to that teacher whom he has a crush on): Ma’am, could you tell me the French teacher of this school is?
Teacher: Sure, why beta?
Pony: I’ve a doubt in French. Could you please take me to the French teacher?

Pony also promised that if he was in Delhi this year, he’d come to Modem as my ‘brother’ just to have a look at her. Not that she’s half that bad though…

Modern School, Vasant Vihar also happens to have these weird toilets with no partitions in between. I guess that’s taking the whole ‘open source’ ideology to a whole new level…

No boundary urinalsAnd, not to forget the high-tech way to play songs in an auditorium – by putting a microphone in front of a speaker, rather than utilising the audio ports of the nearby computer.

    How does something like this happen (I’m talking about the actual quiz, not the ultra-weird pickup line)? It happened to me in the last quiz of my quizzing career – a nondescript DAV national quiz in Kota. We owned the other teams and were the defending champs, for what it’s worth. We even got around 47 out of 50 right in the prelims, but that git of a quizmasterdidn’t put us through. And the worst part is, the girls at the school are uglier than chuck norris in a dress.
