So...I bought a slinky. And, I need a good place to use it. The problem is, all the staircases on campus here at the University of Central Florida have steps too....deep?...the slinky can't make it. Does anyone here have experience with slinkies? Am I doing it wrong? It seems you need a step that is not much deeper than two slinky widths, and I can't find one. As soon as I find one, I want to take this girl that i like that doesn't like me but is friends with me to it to race slinkies. I know it sounds retarded, but it is finals week and I want to do something to unwind with her before we leave to our respective cities for a month. So if you can give me ideas for how to do that, that'd be great. Or, if you know of other things to do with a slinky that will make this girl fall in love with me, that's cool too. I thought that as a last resort we could stack books up in the library but I don't think library staff would appreciate it much.
