Were you watching a horror movie with a bunch of spiders on your hand,and there was snakes in your shirt while doing your exams?
'Accepting my fate'.
I had that exact feeling for last semester's econometrics final. Sadly, no heart rate data from it, but I'm sure that dip was in there about midway through.
This could have been me a few years ago.
Best physics exam I ever took though was one where about halfway through the exam the professor announces that the exam is canceled and we can all leave. Turns out he couldn't get a correct answer on one of the problems when he tried to do it himself. It was something ridiculous too. We had to calculate where debris from an airplane exploding in mid air would land. It was very simplified (stuff like "assume the plane only broke into 3 parts each with a mass of X Y Z). This was in a second semester of the "engineers physics" course.
He had a reputation for making up some very interesting problems on his own but he just bit off more than he could chew that time heh.
EDIT: Another memorable exam question now that I'm thinking on it was where I had to find out how long a beetle resting on a rotating disk could manage to stay on if he just relied on the force of friction. Another one was figuring out at what angle the fins of a drag racer had to be in order to maximize the downward force on the wheels to get the most traction. They were really interesting problems I just wish I had more than 50 minutes to solve them, heh.

I was visiting family back home and decided to bring my Switch, my little cousin was the very first to notice it. I let him borrow it the entire time I was there. Knowing how tough times are back home, it was with a huge and heavy heart that I gave my prized possession away.
Smoking only about one cigarette per day carries a risk of developing coronary heart disease and stroke much greater than expected: around half that for people who smoke 20 per day. No safe level of smoking exists for cardiovascular disease. Smokers should aim to quit instead of cutting down.
TIL Shakespeare coined or popularized many of the phrases we use today. Some of these include: “Good riddance. In my heart of hearts. Laughing stock. Wild-goose chase. Devil incarnate. Brave new world. As luck would have it. All our yesterdays. Break the ice. Full circle.”
