While the addictive properties of marijuana are not quite proven to exist, I have observed that the people who need weed…need…weed. That’s why a high school friend of mine constructed a bong from a flashlight with the use of duct tape (at that point, it probably wasn’t the toxins from the drug affecting his brain) and why another friend smoked out of apples until his mother remarked on how healthily he was eating.
Why do we love when pets act like people? Is our species-wide sense of narcissism quite that powerful, or do we prefer the simple responsibility of animals over the all-encompassing responsibility of smaller people? Either way, cats who sit upright and dogs who shake hands consistently captivates the heart of America.
Remember the age old saying “If he picks on you, it means he likes you.”? Clearly when a boy calls you fat, it’s because he’s imagining you carrying his firstborn with all the grace of a life-bringing earth goddess. When a boy steals your phone, he’s subliminally reassuring you that you’ll never have to worry about financing your own purchases again. So ladies, next time Trey or Chad or Tyler or Trent pulls this crap, you’ll know you’ve found the one.

Nothing causes me to fear for society’s future quite like reality shows centered on birthday parties. Have we, as a nation, regressed in intellect so far as to find ourselves entranced by enormous dresses, spoiled children, and strobe lights beckoning us from a television screen? Are we worshipping the mundane, idolizing the bourgeoisie, and perpetuating the stagnancy? Absolutely. Somebody better let Banksy know.

What happens when your lawyer himself doesn’t obey the law? You’re screwed. That’s as ridiculous as a butcher going vegetarian or an author who doesn’t read. Worse yet, a teacher who doesn’t know how to teach…because, golly gee, none of us have ever experienced that before, right?

Throughout time, pigs have been an important motif in several works. Everything from the classic novel Lord of the Flies to the British anthology series Black Mirror has employed a pig in some way or another. So what’s the pig deal? Turns out the Sus scrofa domesticus is more sus than you may think.

Which movies of this year have you seen so far? My favorite space film is either Guardians of the Galaxy or Interstellar. I suppose I could include Inherent Vice, considering I spent the entire movie completely spaced out. However, it was Interstellar that prompted my fellow cinephile to utter the words “I’m going to film a documonaughey about Matthew McConaughey.” Weeks later I’m still laughing…and Inherent Vice still hasn’t ended.

What’s the sketchiest thing you’ve ever done in a public restroom? My friend said that where she grew up, the family restroom in a particular mall was “infested with STD’s”. At my school, the worst bathroom findings are thirty pounds of used chewing tobacco and unoriginal graffiti. Nothing says academia like empty Grizzly cans juxtaposed with scribbles of “your beautiful”.
