安徽快3当前遗漏 www.ahksrr.com.cn,  中国国家地理的主办方是享誉中外的中国科学院地理科学与资源研究所和中国地理学会,它以弘扬科学精神,构建国家形象,凝聚家国情怀,既是中国国家地理的责任所在,更是中国国家地理义务所在。我的维吾尔“忘年交”。

Like a phoenix, the Naval Academy’s persistent plebes rose again and again from the ashes (or rather, a half-clothed tangle of freshmen) to climb the 21-foot-tall Herndon monument in Annapolis.

Their mission, per tradition: Replace the “Dixie cup” hat at the top of the obelisk with an upperclassman’s hat, as fast as possible, never mind the 50 pounds of vegetable shortening. After two hours, nine minutes and 35 seconds, the plebes succeeded.

In a quick two minutes, this time lapse shows how it went down (and it went down a lot).

Just six minutes into their slippery challenge, the plebes seemed as though they might clinch a quick victory — and crown their first female “capper” in history.

Alas.

Twenty minutes in and still no swap. Could teamwork, that noble concept, be the answer?

Victory! Wait, victory?

Nope, silly plebes, the mission is to swap the hats, not stack them.

Back to work!

Just past the two-hour mark, from behind the obelisk, there appears a phantom hand. Then nothing. Then a short, gentle toss.

Don’t blink, or you’ll miss it.

Victory! For real this time.
