now i gtg take the bus to school, it leaves in 5 minutes.
Dude, you are all over the forum. Look, this is just a thought. Make sure you did not flip the end and try to connect the wrong end. That could be your problem since you been stuck for so long on this and might be frustrated and might have accidentally flip the tube and trying to connect in the wrong end since you mention all the tubes are disconnected.
