Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

why do you hurt me, school

    HellaJeff that sounds painful, particularly because of the education degree requirements.

    I have to wake up early to get to orientation. Obviously, what this means is late night coffee. Guys if you don't wish me luck I just don't know what I will do . . . I will punch a bro.

    Guys, I just want to make flouncy outfits for strippers :(

    So I agreed to read Atlas Shrugged because a dude I know (and would often get into political "debates" with) suggested it to me as a project I was doing.

    But since then he flipped out on me and then defriended me on Facebook (I know, I know) so I don't feel like reading it anymore.

    Is there any reason I should continue to do this? At first I agreed to do it on the basis of "if I know why he read/liked Atlas Shrugged I might be able to understand his point and then be able to argue against it better." Now, though, I don't feel like there is much of a point other than being able to brag about actually finishing it.

    @ seriously: strippers aren't allowed in the dorms. It is a rule. It is in the handbook and everything.

    It says strippers. Nowhere does it mention the act of stripping.

    prostitutes are allowed, but only if you pay for the girlfriend experience.

    I wrapped up my undergrad experience a few years ago getting a BA in English and Philosophy, so as you can probably guess my current occupation has nothing to do with either. I'm now currently working in Higher Education at a University in the Northeast and I'm responsible for 250 freshmen... this past year taught me things that being a Resident Assistant would have never prepared me for.

    Like how does one deal with a student who has a .392 BAC level? And then call their parents at 3 in the morning to let them know that they're alive somehow...

    It was a mix of crazy, scary and hilarious, but it was pretty awesome and I'm doing it again this year.

    Do you have a 24/7 Desk in your residence hall? If you're cool with your RA or head of hall... you never know what you could accomplish.

    s..send them to the hospital

    Oh no I met them at the hospital, the student was somehow still conscious which was amazing... But the student mistook me for a fellow student and pleaded with me to try and escape with her. It was espcially interesting when she got out of the medical bed, ducked behind a chair and said that she's now invisible to the police officer who was still trying to get information out of her. It's really difficult being an advocate for a student when they then proceed to run out and get restrained to the hospital bed just so we can administer care :(

    he was trying to explain vector area, which kind of involves projections but not really and while he was thinking about it the smartass said "Projection's a good word" and he replied with "It is thank you, I'll use it next time it's relevant" and everyone laughed
