We propose a new sport: sequential intramural Vrable showering, or "Vrable ball." Different dorms from all 5 C's can take turns showering Vrable, going for the fastest time into the shower. The definition of "shower" will be: Vrable must be forcibly placed in the shower, and he must be made (more) wet. Teams will be made up of up to five people, with a timing reward for teams of fewer than five. Each game will have an umpire, and will consist of four teams competing to shower Vrable in the fastest time. The four teams will take turns showering Vrable, each in their respective round. The umpire will supervise and time the teams. Each team, in their respective turn, will stand in a circle of radius r meters around Vrable (Vrable being a point mass), r being the number of team members, in the middle of the East courtyard. The umpire will wave a flag, as blowing a whistle would be a $50 fine, to set the team and Vrable going. Both Vrable and the showering team will be confined to set boundaries, being the East dorm and its courtyard. If Vrable exits the East courtyard area, the round will be stopped by the umpire, and the spectating crowd will commence to point and laugh at the showering team. Everyone will go back to their beginning posts, and the round will begin again. The team will have no penalty for Vrable exiting the set boundaries. If a member of the team exits the set boundaries, the team will get a time penalty. The umpire will monitor boundary crossings. Scoring and timing penalties will be established at a later date, when further data have been empirically obtained. (i.e., we've showered the heck out of him)
Vrable may win this event by escaping the shower in a given team's round. He may do this by either locking himself in the bathroom, or escaping the shower in a set amount of time. This time limit will be established when the further data have been obtained. Vrable's reward for escaping showering will be a shower from the Easties.

Homework: 1) Is Vrable ideal? Prove your response. 2) Construct a free body diagram of Vrable at the beginning, midpoint, and end of the showering. Assume conservation of Vrable. Beware of loss of energy. 3) Propose new rules for "Vrable Ball," and submit them to Schmack for approval. 4) Your mom(s). 5) Collect them all.
Extra Credit: 1) See Homework #2. Differentiate and solve.
