    • Earth is the only planet not named after a god.
    • A cockroachcan live several weeks with its head cut off.
    • Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a "Friday the 13th."
    • An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
    • "Almost" is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in alphabetical order.

    That should pretty much cover it. There are some other things that are nice to know, but this is the need to know information.

    Nothing for you to know, but I have a question for you.

    Are you a Battlestar Galactica fan that misspelled Cylons, or an ISU fan that misspelled Cyclones in your username??

    Regardless, welcome!

    Welcome aboard!!

    Two topics to not start a thread on...
    1. I have inside information...
    2. Entrance music for our football team.
    That should about cover it.

    Student tickets sales are always included in sales thermometer.

    Also, the sales thermometer does not include student ticket sales.

    that shoud get you started.

    But do drink the Cyclone Kool-Aid.

    Drink deeply, let it run down your chin, savor its sweetness.

    Re: Newbie here

    A few things to get you started...

    1. There will always be threads about the Hawkeyes. Like it or not. Some people are more concerned about them, then their own team. I admit, I have fallen in the trap a few times.

    2. Season tickets threads will make half the people mad, and make the day of half the people.

    3. Don't feed the trolls. You will figure out who they are quickly.

    4. Everyone on this site is part of the fashion police. Ask yourself now, White or Black shoes.

    5. This board is the #1 sponsor of Marty and Miller and also the Jon Miller Show. No one claims to listen to them, but we almost have weekly threads on what they are talking about.

    6. Contribute to the board. We are a good bunch of people on this site, and I'm sure you will meet several of us during the year.

    Hmmmm..... Thats about it....
