The Ivy Kids Continue To Do Werk on Facebook

It is a professor’s own fault if their students can’t seem to pay any attention to what’s going on in the class if you put them in a computer lab. Let’s just be honest about what really goes on in a classroom or computer lab sometimes. If students could choose between playing on their computers and listening to lectures, they would choose their computers. This isn’t a bold statement. I’ve seen it happen in my own computer class. Here’s the trick: You have two windows. One window is for what you’re supposed to be on, the second is what you’re not supposed to be on. Let’s call that Facebook. In order to succeed at multi-tasking you need to be fully aware of your surroundings – meaning you need to watch your professor like a hawk so they don’t catch you sluffing. This happened to me once. I made myself look like an idiot because I couldn’t answer the question nor did I know what he was even talking about. He caught me as I was on the wrong window and I became flustered and confused switching between both while he was right next to me.

One Yale undergrad student recognized this as a major issue and decided to develop a solution for it by disguising the Facebook home page into an Excel spreadsheet. Functions of the Excel spreadsheet resemble hidden buttons on Facebook. Your professor wouldn’t even know that you were on the wrong page unless they examined what was on your monitor. To them, it’s a normal Excel spreadsheet – maybe even the spreadsheet you are supposed to be working on in class.

Yale Parties Harder Than You.

As I perused through my daily readings in search for new material for Yow Yow! this evening, I came across an article with this headline: Today in College Sex: Masturbation Guides and Naked Parties. Expecting to find that the article would be describing some major party school, I was shocked to discover that it was about in Ivy League Yale. Then the next thought that popped into my head was “What in the world is Yale doing having annual naked parties?” “Who invented this and why does this exist?” Shoot…I didn’t know Yale students got down like that, but they seem more hardcore than any other university I know of. Also I giggled to myself at how awkward this would be after reading the details described in the article.

“Typically it’s no harm, no foul, just a bunch of naked collegers giggling and straining their tiny livers with beer.”

Oh okay. This seems a little more harmless than I thought.

Cassius Clay – 19-year-old Stylist to Kanye

Back in September, we were introduced to Cassius Clay, the Yale student that became the stylist of Kanye West overnight. At the time of that post, we had just heard of the news, but no one even bothered to contact Clay himself. Opening Ceremony has published a new article including an interview and pictures of the young stylist to talk about how his life has changed since he took a leave of absence from Yale to become Kanye’s right hand man. This guy is so serious and all business. You will probably feel self-conscious about your personal style after reading this interview so click here to get there already!

In wtf news

Yale students are sending an email around to each other rating how many beers it would take them to screw dozens of female members of the freshman class of 2013. Girls get ranked by things like “sobriety,” “five beers” or “ten beers.”

COOL! It’s like the new – kill, marry, screw game.
