HAMILTON ST— In the absence of Rutgersfest— the daylong music festival which was cancelled last year because the administration is afraid of students having too much fun, at least one guy—This Guy— rose to the challenge to keep it going strong. This Guy carefully saved up about $35 over a time frame of four months, and put together an elaborate “Underground Rutgersfest” to perpetuate Rutgers' most beloved tradition. The event took place last week in a Hamilton Street basement. You weren’t there and it was awesome. A number of musical acts showed up, all played from a crystal clear Apple iHome speaker system. Most of the song selections were specially imported from This Guy’s iTunes library just for the occasion. The volume was turned up much higher than normal, and since no one was there, the sound bounced



Catholic Clergy to don White Hoods to Support Trayvon Martin

"The white hoods are a symbol of peace, as they are they same color as doves and my pope garments," proclaimed Pope Benedict. The Church has seen widespread support for this decree, and more and more clergy have begun wearing their supportive hoods.

appointed President of Rutgers University, Dr. Robert L. Barchi, has announced his plans to sell the historical headquarters of the college, Old Queens. While Barchi does not take the reigns as President until September 1, he has already contacted several buyers interested in purchasing the building and lot. "We are not a museum of old artifacts," said the former President of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. Barchi also noted that the building was out-of-date and not up to modern building code standards. He concluded that

"The money we receive from selling the building will contribute to the new medical school," said Barchi, implying that Governor Christie's proposals will be approved. Current President Richard L. McCormick shares the same middle initial as his successor but is strongly opposed to the sale of Old Queens. "I took so many shits in that building," said McCormick. "Maybe history is just my thing but the building needs to be preserved as a Rutgers landmark." The Associated Press reports that potential buyers include Wal-Mart heiress Alice

COME TO THE MEETGreek Service Day to teach students to perform MEDIUM ING TONIGHT @ 8PM! charitable acts while heavily intoxicated YEAH I'M IN A FRAT


NEW BRUNSWICK- This upcoming weekend, students from various fraternities and sororities will converge on New Brunswick to help various charities and organizations improve the greater New Brunswick area. As part of ‘Greekend’, an end of year celebration of Greek Life on campus, students will help those in need while helping themselves to beer and tequila. “We want to let New Brunswick know that Rutgers Greeks care about our community,” said Laura Dunlap, Panhellenic Council’s events co-chair. “We are sure that this year’s efRUTGERSFEST

You weren’t there, but you wish you were. Of course, Underground Rutgersfest would not be complete without moon bounces. This Guy didn’t have any of those, so This Guy brought a mattress down to the basement and jumped until he puked his carbonated stomach contents. The element of danger was definitely there because This Guy has a very low ceiling in the basement, with lots of cobwebs that can get caught in your eyes. You weren’t there, but it was fucking sweet. Organizing is underway for next year’s underground Rutgersfest, but you probably won’t show up to that one either because you’re a buzzkill.

While only one day is dedicated to service, the message carries on in the hearts of the Greek community. “Its taught me a lot about giving to the less fortunate,”

It will culminate in a giant ceremony where bottles of Van Gogh PB&J Vodka will be handed out to everyone, since every member of every sorority and fraternity will be gunning for the pristine award for ‘Most Intoxicated.’

“Well, you just show her a penis bigger than her thumb.”


MSRP: $25,000 This fair priced van has a 4.3L V6 engine, which runs at 195 horsepower. The MPG is 15 city/20 highway, so you can stray farther away from home to swipe your victims on a single tank. Overview: this van can run from the police quite well, but the main problem is that there are no side doors to access the cargo area. This won?t allow for quick side street grabs, you will have to cunningly lure in your victims. This van is for the experienced rapists only.


Ford E-Series:

MSRP: $27,000 This van is eligible to be upgraded to a 6.8L v10, with a 33 gallon gas tank. With 305 horsepower, this van is an excellent blockade runner for those hot pursuit situations. This van also has a windowless option, so no one will be able to see your ?cargo.? 1.5 sized side doors allow for quick, off the street grabs. Overview: The Ford E-series is an excellent choice for novice predators, and receives the award for best overall van.


#IndianKidProblems by Supa Krupa Troopa

Growing up with Indian parents in an American society has always had its pros and cons. Yes, my parents pay for everything, feed me, and sometimes even do my laundry, but I still find my ass getting yelled at for stupid irrevelent stuff. Here’s some shit my parents say when they scold me: 1. “Why do you smell like men’s cologne?” Uh…the truth is, my friends are assholes an sprayed me with Axe. 2. “You got a 95 on an exam? Why didn’t you get a 100?” Da fuq, why ain’t a 95 good enough for you?! All the white folk are content with it! 3. “You need to learn how to cook, who wants to marry a girl that can’t cook?” Well mom, in that case, I’m not learning to cook. Fuck that.

4. “You want to sleep over your friends house? No. You have your own bed.” Seriously, dad? The whole team is going.I’m not going to get raped at my TEAM SLEEPOVER. 5. “Why are you wearing shoes in the house? Now you can scrub the carpet.” Walking into the house with shoes on for 2 seconds isn’t going to kill anyone… 6. “You spent how much on what?! MONEY DOESN’T GROW ON TREES.” I know, dad. COME ON. It was on sale AND I had a coupon. 7. “Boys? Is he Indian? Doctor? Lawyer? Rich? How about PreMed?” Not applicable. He is my Physics lab partner…who happens to be a foot shorter than me. Not interested.



Meat Love by: STUNAMI

One of the greatest dilemmas in the history of human civilization; keep the cute animal alive, or kill it and eat bacon later. I’ve made my choice; to let somebody else kill the cute animal, and enjoy the meat later. Don’t get me wrong, I love animals, and I would never kill one just for meat. But kobe steaks are not just meat. They are something greater. Much greater. Bacon, chicken cordon bleu, roast pork, are all well worth the cost of an animal’s life and suffering. Unfortunately, thousands of animals die each day, only to be repurposed as dry, diner chicken fingers, meat loaf, and god forbid, Indian food. I believe that if animals are going to die, they at least deserve the dignity of a delicious fate, rather than being thrown away as a half eaten blueberry McDonalds chicken nugget. Animal activists today are far too general with their beliefs. I think we can have it both

the Medium Chevrolet Express 1500:

MSRP: $25,000 The Chevy Express utilizes a 4.6L V6, but is available with a diesel engine for the 2500 model. It has the capability to upgrade to 260 horsepower, which fairs quite well against pursuit vehicles. The mileage is 15 city/20 highway, which is similar to the average van. Overview: The Chevy Express is the average van, which blends well into daily traffic. It is available in passenger or cargo models, having double side doors as an option. This van is best for your average kidnapper.

ways. Instead of freeing all the animals, we should just make it illegal to process them into edible shit, or caca, if you will. Right now, innocent animals are being wasted. If we are going to make them suffer and die, we at least owe it to the animals to make sure their death does not go in vain. On the contrary, we honor those cows that gave their lives, by turning them into delicious entrées and not e-coliinfested taco bell ground beef. Every mass-produced burrito is a slap in the face to the wrongfully sacrificed cow. I weep for the lost dignity that every bovine and meat-baring creature must feel when they reach heavenly pastures only to find that their last earthly legacy was being sold as SPAM. I propose a new wave movement. Rescue the animals. But only the ones that are destined to be wasted. That’s a fair tradeoff as I see it, and one that most everyone, meat-lover and vegans alike can agree on. I won’t be shoving pamphlets in your face to get my message across, just nasty dining hall sausages.

My Anecdotal, Uncontrolled Experiment Proves my Point BY HELENA MCCANN Whenever I get into an argument with somebody and they try to tell me that what I’m saying is untrue on a scientific basis, I am always able to prove them wrong with anecdotal evidence that spits in the face of the scientific method. Some “scientists” design “experiments” with “independent and dependent variables,” and go through rigorous analysis of metadata to prove their “hypotheses,” but if my aunt told me a story about something that happened one time to her friend that disproves whatever you’re trying to prove, I’m going to have to believe the halfremembered and exaggerated story of my aunt instead of your logical and peer-reviewed study. I understand that millions and millions of dollars are used worldwide to fund important scientific research, and that through science, many vastly important innovations have been discovered that have a significant impact on the

way people in the 21st century live their lives. In spite of that, I am going to reject all scientific evidence that disproves my inherent biases that I have accumulated throughout my lifetime based on false attributions. Just because someone has a PhD in some field doesn’t make them an expert, even though

“Just because someone has a PhD in some field doesn’t make them an expert.” they are, by definition, an expert. Even though I haven’t taken any classes even remotely related to the actual study of science since high school, it doesn’t mean I can’t make my own theories about basic scientific facts in the fields of biology, psychology, physics, and chemistry. Were you trying to tell me that obesity in

America is caused by high calorie diets and sedentary lifestyle based on a series of recent studies? Well I had a friend that would eat a lot and didn’t exercise and was always skinny. How does that fit into your science? I believe that this winter was unseasonably warm because of the effects of global warming. Don’t even try to tell me that it was caused by a meteorological phenomenon of pressure changes in the jetstream over the Southwestern and Eastern United States. But next year, if the winter is very harsh, I will retract my support of the theory of climate change and have a different pool of anecdotes to pull from when you try to argue that the greenhouse effect causes winter weather to be more extreme. I don’t get why so many people care so much about ensuring scientific accuracy when my anecdotal evidence is much more convincing than anything they have to say. I guess it’s genetic.


Ask Any Rutgers Bus Driver Other Than Stan

Q: I work part time at a fast food place. One of my co-workers there is always complaining about having to do work and always does things like check her phone and takes smoke breaks during our busiest times. My other co-workers and I have to pick up her slack, and I don’t think she deserves the same pay as us when we have to do her job for her. She isn’t really qualified to do anything else so I know this job is important to her but it’s really making everyone else’s job harder. Should we call her out on her bad behavior? Sincerely, Fried and Frazzled

Look, before we talk about anything I need you get behind the white line. I can’t move this bus or answer any questions until you’re behind that line. I’m sorry hun, but if I hit the breaks you’re gonna go tumbling through that windshield. I’m not gonna sit here all day filling out police reports just because you won’t sit that big ass backpack down. Hey, if you can’t fit you have to wait for the next bus. I don’t make the rules. Look, I don’t know when the next bus is coming but you just have to get off and wait. We all have places to be, boy, and no one is gonna be anywhere if you don’t get behind that white line. This is company policy, don’t you see the sign? All of you need to move towards the back because I have a schedule and I’m not getting in trouble for this. YOU NEED TO MOVE BEFORE I CALL THE POLICE AND MAKE THEM MOVE YOU! Alright now that everyone is behind the line I can tell you that girl sounds like a bitch but you shouldn’t confront her. Tell a supervisor about her instead. You’ve got 6 minutes to think about it before the bus departs.

Movie Review: The Hunger Games BY POKEMON LEAF GREEN | Ass. Backpage Editor

This movie was one of the greatest films I have ever seen! It was a complete mind fuck. Leonardo DiCaprio played his part excellently. The main plot is that Leonardo DiCaprio can go into people’s dreams and get information out of them. A company hires him and Leonardo and



his team go into multiple dream levels to access information. Along the way, DiCaprio’s dead wife haunts him through the dreams he goes into. If you haven’t seen the Hunger Games, I highly suggest you go to your local movie theater immediately. Twitter: @rutgersmedium

I was first introduced to this drink mixture by watching a guy in front of me in line for the soda fountain make this very mixture. I was originally only going to get water, but I had to try this based on the implied recommendation of this stranger. My first thought was that it was going to be gross. Schweppes Ginger Ale can possibly be titled the universal mixer, since it mixes well with almost any other soda and still taste good; however, Orange Crush is the one soda that can’t mix well with anything else. Would the Schweppes Ginger Ale’s inherent qualities as a good mixer make this a success, or would the Orange Crush be overpowering and ruin any hope? Turns out, it’s really gross. I have tried this mixture several times, each time searching for what exactly makes the experience horrible. Most soda mixtures will taste good just by virtue

of being carbonated sugar water, but this is pretty unique in that I can’t bring myself to finish the glass. On a conceptual level, it is not as if the flavors of orange and ginger are impossible to mix. One just has to consider an orangeginger spiced chicken from a Chinese restaurant to verify that the flavors do work well together. Though it is perhaps because Orange Crush doesn’t actually taste like oranges, and Schweppes Ginger Ale doesn’t actually taste like ginger, so the two sodas don’t necessarily make a good combination. Another aspect that makes the mixture bad is the almost soapy taste of the Schweppes Ginger Ale, paired with the cloying sweetness of the orange soda. I don’t think any adjustment to the ratio of the two sodas would improve this drink. However, I would perhaps be compelled to try this mixture with Orangina or plain orange juice instead of Orange Crush.
