WHAT’S on!

Editors ‘

LETTER It’s Gonna Be a Hot ONE! If not for the breeze, these Florida summers would be quite insufferable!

While many of you have taken the summer off to hit the beach, the rest of you have chosen (or were forced) to stick it though and stash your head in a book. Well, it may not be the beach, but there are still plenty of paths to distract you from studying, and CT is here to help you find them. This month’s issue contains a range of summer pursuits, including a guide to

the best drinking games, kids shows that every college student should entertain, relationship get-out-of-jailfree cards (for when those summer flings go stale), condiments to aid the cafeteria food suffrage, a little info on the Olympics and, for you history buffs, a time portal through June’s past. So buck up and book it from your studies, because, if all else fails, at least the line at the bar is shorter!

WHEN GETTING DRUNK BY THE POOL JUST ISN’T ENOUGH

Summer by Brian Hodges

Drinking

Games!

As if you really needed another reason to drink, it’s summertime! And as if you needed another excuse to drink more, we’ve got drinking games! But rather than another boring round of A**hole inside a hot room with stale beer and bad ventilation, it’s time to strip down to your bathing suit and head outdoors. These three games will help get your drink on while working on your tan and hanging out with other half-naked drunks in the sweaty summer sun.

BEERSBEE POOL PONG

Sure sure, you could just drag your precious beer pong table onto the lawn and play there. But if you have access to a pool, why wouldn’t you combine these two glorious assets? After all, the only thing better than making a hottie you’ve had your eye on drink to the point of bad decisions is making a wet, barely-dressed hottie drink to the point of bad decisions. Inflatable Pool Pong tables, complete with cup holders, are available online for less than eighty dollars. But if you’re feeling particularly handy you can make your own out of nothing more than a big piece of plywood, a few pool noodles and some plastic rip-ties. (OVERPROTECTIVE DAD MOMENT: This should go without saying, but when you’re drinking and being a general dumbass in and around water, for the love of god be careful and make sure there are at least a few people of sound mind and body who can jump in and save your drunk self if it goes under.)

SPIN TILL YOU PUKE

It goes by various names, but I stand by this most straightforward description. To play these two games all you need is a wiffle-ball bat, a cooler full of beer and a whoooole lot of space. In Version No. 1, cut the bottom off your bat and fill it with beer. Start chugging. Now bend over and put your forehead on the bat. However many seconds it took to down the beer, that’s how many times you need to spin before attempting to hit a homerun with a crushed beer can. If you miss, spin three more times and try again. Your turn is over when you either hit the can or crack your skull on a garden gnome. Version No. 2 is more of a team sport. After the starter’s gun (or, since this is a residential neighborhood, a chick in a bikini shouting “Go!”) put your head on the bat and spin ten times. Now run across the yard to a table of beer. Crack one and chug it. Then spin three more times and run back, tagging your teammate who makes his own run.

Competitive Frisbee, plain and simple. But with beer. Easy right? Once you get the hang of it, yes, though there seem to be as many varying rules as there are people who argue over the game’s proper spelling: Beersbee? Beersbie? Beersby? To start, two teams stand behind a stick with a beer can balanced on top. Every player must hold their beer the entire time and penalties are assessed for spillage. The basic rules involve taking turns throwing a Frisbee at the opposing team’s stick. From there the game is open to interpretation. Depending on your particular version, points are awarded/deducted for knocking over the beer can, for hitting the stick, for catching the Frisbee, for missing the Frisbee, for catching the bottle as it falls, for using the stick to beat your teammate who screwed up yet again… and on and on as complicated (or not) as your drunk mind feels like taking it. Frankly, as with any of these games, the rules aren’t nearly as important as being out in the sun, surrounded by the kind of people Katy Perry likes to sing about, all while getting progressively drunker and celebrating youth and summer. Have fun!

Totally useless fact: Steely Dan got their name from a sexual device depicted in the book ‘The Naked Lunch’.

SAY WHAT? by john scheck

Frequently

Overheard

Phrases of College

Students

College students are all different. Some have tattoos of suns while others have permanent depictions of dolphins on their hides. Some wear their ball caps pointing to the rear while other nonconformists have the bill cocked slightly off-center. However, what you overhear them saying is pretty much the same thing, year after year.

I thought penicillin was supposed to cure every damn thing. What color is supposed to make people look less fat?

A “C” is the new “B” and an “A” is just showing off. campus talk

Can you spell that? (When asked at a police checkpoint to recite the alphabet backwards)

Is prison food better than dorm food?

EASY DOES IT!

8

Things You Should Never

By Adam Defrin

Do At A Guy s Place ’

Your night is winding down. Last call has been made, and it looks like your evening will sadly be over before you even have the chance to realize that you spilled beer all over yourself, have an unzipped fly and are completely, utterly drunk. That is, until you bump into that guy who you’ve been trying to hook-up with lately. Between the mutual drunkenness (and the attraction felt due to the mutual drunkenness), something is going to happen between the two of you. Your night will be a success, unless you do one of the eight things listed here.

Totally useless fact: The male gypsy moth can “smell” the virgin female gypsy moth from 1.8 miles away.


EASY DOES IT! 1) DON’T: Eat all of his food

3) DON’T: Bring another girl

Ah, the drunken munchies. Everyone gets ‘em. They’re the only reason that places like Taco Bell have any customers. I hate to sound like an ass (or be the cause of an eating disorder), but these late-night munchies need to be tamed…especially when you’re at a guy’s place. It’s not so much that we mind our food being eaten. It’s just a huge turn-off to see a girl eat an entire box of Wheat Thins, three pouches of Gushers and a bowl of Easy Mac. It makes us want to vomit.

So you’re not sure if you want to go through with it. You bring your friend along just-incase you want to back out. Maybe you’ll give your friend a silent motion to let her know if you want her to stay or go while he’s not looking. Either way, the guy gets the hint: he’s “a questionable.” No guy wants to be “ a questionable,” and even if he gets the thumbs up, he has the fact that the girl wasn’t originally sure in the back of his mind. So, bottom line: don’t bring a wing girl… unless you have intentions of including her in the events to come.

2) DON’T: Vomit Vomiting warns the guy that you’re way too drunk to be doing anything besides sleeping face down. It also lets him know that you’re going to be sloppy. If you throw up, a guy is very unlikely to follow through with the hook-up, because he knows that you’re not going to be very good at any sexual act that he had intentions of doing with you. He also doesn’t want that nasty flavor on his mouth…or penis! And now, just to even the playing field, a hot, female CT writer sounds off with a sharp, witty rebuttal:

Things a man should never tell a woman If he likes having two balls By Maria Luisa Baltodano

1 ) “You don’t look fat in that dress; you

look like a friggin’ hungry hippo.”

2) “Molly used to move her tongue

around like this. You should, too.” 3) “You look like Bigfoot with Hirsutism (the scientific name for excessive hairiness in women) down there.” 4) “Nice make-up job. Are you in the Picasso drawing class, too?” 5) “Wanna make-out? There’s a really nice Port-O-Potty down the road.” 6) “Your eyes are the color of two turds festering in the morning sun.” 7) “Can’t you open your mouth any wider?” 8) “What’s your name again?” 9) “How much do you weigh? I’m pretty sure it’s more than Lindsay Lohan but less than Rosie O’Donnell.” 10) “Congratulations! When’s it due?” 11) “You’d be perfect if you didn’t have a mouth.” 12) “Just squat in the bushes.” 13) “Bend over, biotch.”

4) DON’T: Pass Out Imagine running a marathon. You’re in first the entire way. You’re approaching the finish line, about to seal the deal, but, suddenly, you trip up. The others run over you and finish the race, and you just lie there in pain. That’s the pain a guy feels when a girl comes over and passes out before anything even happens. Actually, they’re nothing alike, except for the fact that you never get to cross the finish line in either situation. I mean, I guess you could go in to kiss the girl, but that would just be crossing the line – in a totally gross, non-sexy way!

5) DON’T: Change female hygienic products She’s been in that bathroom for a while. Is she preparing for me? Is she getting ready for what’s about to go down? Oh, O.K., she’s done. “Hey, what’s up?” Hmm, I kind of have to use the bathroom, too. “I’ll be right back.” Wow, I drank a lot tonight. This girl so wants it. What is that in my garbage? No way. She wouldn’t. Ewwwww. Don’t let this happen to you. The main reason it’ll break the night is because the guy knows that he can’t get as far with you as he was hoping to, but it’s also just a huge turn-off to see such a bloody nightmare in your garbage. Don’t get me wrong – we’re all about getting the blood flowing – as long as it’s not yours!

6) DON’T: Wear regular panties Honestly… why would you do such a thing? You know a guy is going down there. You know that he will see what you have on. You know that once he gets those pants off, he’ll want to see something that’ll turn him on even more. Sorry, ladies, but regular Hanes just won’t cut it. Let him take off something that has as much cloth as his sock, like a g-string, a thong or even booty shorts. That last one’s a stretch… but I guess when it comes to the panty department, a little stretch can be a good thing, right?

Totally useless fact: In England, the Speaker of the House is not allowed to speak.

Since we’re on the topic of what to (not) do at a guy’s place, we figured the article wouldn’t be complete without mentioning things you should never tell a guy, regardless of whether you’re at his place, at your place, at a water park, at a sporting event, at the Playboy mansion, at a movie or at a Girls Gone Wild pimps and hoes hoedown. So, here we bring you…

5 Things you should never say to a guy By Michael Fresco

1) “I used to be a man.” Good to know in advance that you’re a d*$#head. Thanks for the “heads-up.” 2) “I’ve seen bigger.” Even if you have seen bigger, pretend that you haven’t. Better yet, convince yourself that you haven’t. 3) “Can you go buy me some tampons?” No, no thanks. 4) “Your bathroom is nasty.” Guys don’t want their world of girls and their world of bathrooms colliding, except for in the shower. Besides, if you’re bothered by it, clean it yourself! 5) “Let’s wear our matching green polo shirts tomorrow!” I have a friend who did this and was later hung from the flagpole by his balls. True story.

7) DON’T: Move your bowels This is unnecessary…and gross…and nasty… and, well, shitty! That’s why this act should be taken care of before you go out for the night. Girls don’t even take craps, do they? Either way, if you can do it and get away without it being noticed, then all the more power to you. But if you do it, and the guy notices, it could possibly be the worst thing to ever happen to you. He will tell his boys. And they will tell their boys. And before you know it, you’re left with a (drum roll, please) crappy reputation.

8) DON’T: Deny the suggestion of the use of a condom So you say it feels better. Granted, it may. But if a guy pulls one out, do not tell him to put it away. Depending on the guy, he may or may not like the idea, but either way, his perception of the kind of girl that you are will be changed, and honestly, do you really want him to equate you with that drunk, easy chick he met last year while on spring break? Didn’t think so! campus talk

let’s not be stingy!

Tipping101 By Maria Luisa Baltodano

For when a mere slap on the back just ain’t enough.

So, you wanna be a good tipper, huh? Then spend a week in our shoes, as we illustrate tactful tipping protocol:

4 more people you shouldn’t overlook

Let’s say you have a whole week jam-packed with appointments in different places. On Monday, you go to a hair cuttery, and Lorraine, with the funny hair license picture, gives you one hideous coiffure. You hate it, yet she did spend a whole hour on your head. Do you tip her? Heck yeah you do. You give her a nice 15 percent. Do you think she wanted to wash your crusty head before she Edward scissor-handed your hair? She probably couldn’t see how she was cutting your hair from all the dandruff. Pay up. Now, on Tuesday night, you decide to go to the early supper show at the nearest strip club. You’ve got your wallet with you, yet you’re unsure of how to tip. Look at it this way: If she bends over almost far enough for you to see what she ate for dinner, the tip goes higher like $5, but unless you’re at the Waldorf Astoria of strip clubs – aka Mons Venus, tipping more than 20 bucks is ridiculous. Come Wednesday, you realize you want to look just like those booty-shakin’ strippers and want a bikini wax. If you’re a guy – you take your girl. Ladies, if you have a hairy Timbuktu (or are ahem – surfin’ the crimson tide), you may want to tip a little more than the standard 15–20 percent. After all, this waxer has her hands full, to say the least. As per the men, if you’re taking your girl and you get to watch, tipping should go way up. You can even tip your own girl an extra 10 percent for giving you a show and not to mention, for going through that pain. Finally, it’s Thursday, and it’s time to go out. Whether it be quarter bowling or ladies’ night at a club, there is sure to be a bartender around somewhere ready to leech out the cash off your back. For some odd reason, it seems that even making someone a Shirley Temple constitutes a $3–$5, tip because you need “like so much talent” to make one. Unless the bartender flashes you, leave at least 15–20 percent. After all, they do have to deal with your drunk-ass all night. As per Friday, do what we here at CT do best: party it up!

Cow Tipping Tips • Be sure the ‘cow’ you are trying to tip isn’t a bull. You might get a tip from the bull instead. • Do not make “moo” sounds. This only aggravates them. • Do not try to ride the cow like a horse.

Shot Girl These girls never have too much trouble scoring a big tip. I don’t think it’s because of how great the watered-down watermelon test-tube shots are, but it probably has something more to do with their own set of watermelons. Keep handing out those 20’s without asking for change, though. You may just get a late night, after-hours “tip” of your own. Wink wink. StriPper Yes, we know we already covered this, but just a tip to the wise: An appointment at the student health care center might not be a bad idea if you’re planning on paying for more than a lap dance. Flight Attendant Don’t worry about tipping a flight attendant. The only tip this person needs is to watch out for protruding elbows as she pushes that drink cart down the aisle. Cab Driver If your cabby takes the quickest route, speeds and drives like he’s in a video game, all in an attempt to get your er tipsy (okay retardedly tipsy) “Can I off you a ride ?” roommate home, then you must downtown show your thanks. Leave him an extra five in addition to the 10–15 percent you already tipped. That should cover the cost of an air freshener and disinfectant spray. One more tip – a few bucks for a cab may seem like a hassle, but a couple thousand bucks for a DUI is worse. By Joe Supervielle

Tipping Tips: • Do not make friends with the cow. Remember, you are there to TIP the cow. • Do not dress the cow up in a pink tutu. They like blue. • Do not eat a burger in front of the cow. They have feelings too!

“Com che e and coc ck out m nicekpit. It’s y up in and co there zy .”

In case you’re still not getting it! • Tattoo artist: 10–20% Less Common People to Tip, too: • Furniture or appliance • Porter or skycap: $2 per bag • Bellman at a hotel: $1–2 per bag • Hotel maid service: $1–5 per day

deliveryman: $5–10 • Flower deliveryman: $2–5 • Pizza (or other food) deliveryman: 15%, but no less than $2

Totally useless fact: The letters KGB stand for Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti.


CASH ONLY, PLEASE! I’m what people call an idea man. Ideas fall off of me like leaves from a tree in autumn except that you don’t have to wait three whole seasons for the leaves to grow back and then fall off again. My ideas keep coming like an evergreen tree which really doesn’t have leaves unless needles are leaves but I think you get the point...

Credit By john scheck

Where Credit is Due After a run-on sentence you need to take a deep breath…run-on sentences and deep breaths are my ideas, both of them. I am always thinking of new and exciting things. Exciting can be synonymous with dangerous but you sometimes never find out until you try something once…or twice assuming you survive the first time. No one suspected that shoving a broom handle in the spokes of your bike wheel for the purposes of braking could present certain challenges to the safety of the rider when traveling at 50 kilometers an hour down a steep hill, but at least now we have answered that mystery. I’m not saying that all my ideas are good, just that I have a lot of them and for most I have received no credit or monetary recompense.

Everyone has heard of the rule that pizzas are free unless they are delivered in 30 minutes or less. I came up with that concept. Granted, I was working for the Detroit coroner’s office at the time so the notion of getting death certificates in 30 minutes or less didn’t gain much popularity, but this same idea took the pizza delivery world by storm. I haven’t received so much as a free order of cinnamon sticks for my brilliant idea. If you read the instructions on a bottle of shampoo you’ll noticed that it says “Lather, rinse, and repeat.” That whole “repeat” thing was my idea for which I received a boatload of cash. Unfortunately, I lost that and a lot more from subsequent legal battles after I put this same “repeat” instruction on a line of handguns I manufactured. Maybe I should mention that this stylish line of pistols were of a rather high caliber.

It was yours truly who came up with a numeric system for describing human elimination procedures; the old and very familiar No. 1 and No. 2. For decades now this simple numerical hierarchy system has ensured that two people wishing to use the same restroom at the same time have some kind of order as to who enters first, which would be No. 1, of course, unless they happen to be on holiday in Mexico in which case No. 2 trumps No. 1. Although I hold the patent on this procedure, I haven’t been able to turn even a modest profit. I have accepted my fate and I don’t waste time thinking about water – or other liquids or solids – under the bridge. How was I to know that when I coined the phrase, “The best things in life are free” it would come back to bite me on the ass? I didn’t mean the stuff I came up with should be free; I was talking about stuff you download or that bag of groceries I got when the guy next to me on the bus fell asleep and missed his stop.

Totally useless fact: The Ramses brand condom is named after the great phaoroh Ramses II who fathered over 160 children.

…BUT YOU CAN BE IMMATURE FOREVER

Kid Shows by Brian Hodges

Every College Student

Should Be Watching If there’s anything college is about, it’s not acting your age. In both directions. On one hand, you’re drinking several years before the law says you’re allowed. On the other, you take naps, eat cereal for dinner and wear your backpack with both straps on. It’s time to really indulge this latter aspect of college. There are a ton of shows geared toward little kids which, in the spirit of good old fashioned college regression, can absolutely be enjoyed by someone living in the dorm… especially when you do that whole drinking-before-you’re-technically-old-enough thing.

YO GABBA GABBA – Nick Jr. (TV–Y)

Like a bad acid trip gone horribly horribly right, this loud, brightly colored show is ostensibly aimed at preschoolers. But with its trippy animation sequences and even trippier-looking main characters, not to mention the indie rock acts like MGMT and Jimmy Eat World who frequently show up to perform and surf on cats (yes really), it’s clear Yo Gabba Gabba’s other target audience is college-age stoners. And hey, what better way to reinforce such lessons as “Eat Your Veggies” or “Don’t Bite Your Friends” than to have them scream-sung at you by a furry green monster and giant French tickler?

MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC – The Hub (TV–Y)

Pink, purple and sparkles ain’t just for little girls anymore. In fact, if the whole “Brony” craze (seriously, look it up) is anything to go by, it ain’t just for girls, period. By effortlessly combining the saccharinely sweet with the subtly snarky, this latest Pony incarnation has already found mass appeal with everyone from three-year-old girls to thirty-year-old men! That’s because rather than falling back on the trite old trope that all any girl (or pony) wants out of life is pretty hair and lovely tea parties, the creators gave their characters unique (gasp) personalities. Personalities that often clash, making for decent storylines and even better humor. The only question is whether you’re man enough to give it a shot.

ADVENTURE TIME – Cartoon Network (TV-PG) PHINEAS AND FERB – Disney XD (TV–G)

Blending juvenile humor with the kind of sarcastic winks and references that can only be appreciated by an elder viewer, this cartoon finds brilliance in following the exact same formula every single episode. The titular prodigies build some ridiculous invention while their older sister sets about trying to “bust” them. Meanwhile their secret agent pet platypus (yep) battles the evil Doctor Doofenshmirtz before he can use his own twisted invention – a “(something)inator” – to take over the Tristate Area. Full of ridiculous scenarios and hilarious one-liners, mixed with a brand of subtle humor that appeals to the hipster in all of us, there’s a lot here to like. 16

THE LEGEND OF KORRA – Nickelodeon (TV–Y7)

Fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender are already on board with this one. The original animeinspired cartoon was easily one of the best written shows for any age group ever, full of detailed mythology, amazing fight sequences and no shortage of complex characters who kicked all sorts of element-bending ass. This new incarnation takes place seventy years after the conclusion of Airbender and incorporates the same water-, earth-, fire- and airbending action, but with an added helping of steampunk awesomeness. Not to mention, there’s a new sport called “Professional Bending” which, in this writer’s humble opinion, is destined to become the new Quidditch.

With its vague innuendos and mindf*** situations, one could be forgiven for assuming this cartoon is some sort of Adult Swim offering. In a post-apocalyptic world where the basic laws of physics seem to bend to the animators’ immediate needs, the series follows Finn the sword-wielding Human and Jake the shape-shifting Dog as they battle the evil beard-flying Ice King. Their various (adventures? tangents? A.D.D. streams of consciousness?) put them in frequent contact with hordes of side characters whose own internal physics likewise bend to the whims of the animators. But blatant absurdity often gives way to surprisingly heartfelt moments and kid-friendly lessons such as “Don’t Judge Others”, “Use Your Imagination” and “Make Good When You Boil Someone in Acid.”

Totally useless fact: My Little Pony was introduced by Hasbro in 1981.


New Work Policies Updated 5/10/2012

DRESS CODE:

It is advised that you come to work dressed according to our salary, if we see you wearing $750 Prada shoes and carrying a $900 Gucci bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a raise. 

SICK LEAVE:

We will no longer accept a doctor’s statement or medical certificate as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

LEAVE OF ABSENCE:

(For Pregnancy): Out of the question. If you will take the proper measures before sex this will not become a problem. Too many times we get someone trained and then they get pregnant. This costs us money and is not acceptable. If you get pregnant you will be expected to work. We will allow you one day in which to have your baby. You must specify that day 2 weeks in advance. Once you have specified a date for the birth of your child, you MUST stick to it. No exceptions.

PERSONAL LEAVE:

Each employee will receive 104 days of personal leave a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday. 

COMPANY VACATION DAYS:

On top of your entitlement to 104 days of personal leave a year, we allow all employees to take their vacation at the same time every year. The company vacation days are as follows: Jan 1 and Dec 25. 

COMPASSIONATE LEAVE:

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases, where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon, and after work. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early, provided your share of the work is done. 

LEAVING BECAUSE OF YOUR OWN DEATH: This will be accepted as an excuse. However, we require at least two weeks’ notice as it is your duty to train your own replacement. 

RESTROOM USE:

Entirely too much time is being spent in the restroom. In the future, we will follow the practice of going in alphabetical order. For instance, all employees whose names begin with “A” will go from 8 to 8:20, employees whose names begin with “B” will go from 8:20 to 8:40 and so on. If you’re unable to go at your allotted time, it will be necessary to wait until the next day when your turn comes again. In extreme emergencies, employees may swap their time with a co-worker. However, both employees’ supervisors must approve this exchange in writing. 

LUNCH BREAKS:

Skinny people get an hour for lunch as they need to eat more so that they can look healthy, normal size people get 30 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Fat people get 5 minutes for lunch because that’s all the time needed to drink a Slim Fast and take a diet pill.  Management realizes that some may view these policies as harsh but you have to understand that this is not only a fun place to work, it’s a business. Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, complaints, irritations and input should be directed elsewhere. Have a nice week!

The Night the Lights Went Out in Gainesville It may be hard to believe, but Gainesville’s move to public power began in late 1911 over a $7.30 bill dispute. At the time, Gainesville was a small town just getting used to hosting the six-year-old fledgling University of Florida, and the community’s electric needs were served by the privately owned Gainesville Gas and Electric Company, known as GG&E. In response to residents’ frequent complaints that the downtown streetlights were either off or poorly maintained, the City Council informed GG&E that $10 would be deducted from the December bill. The company would accept only a $2.70 reduction. The City refused to pay, so GG&E cut off the power on January 26, 1912.

“Gainesville streets are in the dark and local residents are wondering what to expect next,” read an article in The Gainesville Sun the next day. Citizens were outraged at the lack of control they had over their streetlights and organized a grassroots campaign to demand the creation of a city-run electric utility. They got their wish. Construction of the downtown power plant, now the John R. Kelly Generating Station, was started the next year and completed in 1914. So began Gainesville’s ownership of a public power utility, which became Gainesville Regional Utilities. Reliable and safe, not-for-profit electricity from a hometown company–that’s the benefit of public power. Celebrate with us. For a list of events and upcoming contest details visit www.gru.com.

One community. One request. One hundred years of GRU service.

A note left for milkman: Do not leave any milk at Number 22 today as Mr. Jones has died until further notice.

A guy walked into a bar with a pet alligator by his side. He put the alligator up on the bar. He turned to the astonished patrons and said, ‘I’ll make you a deal. I’ll open this alligator’s mouth and place my genitals inside. Then the gator will close his mouth for one minute. He’ll then open his mouth and I’ll remove my unit unscathed. In return for witnessing this spectacle, each of you will buy me a drink. The crowd murmured their approval. The man stood up on the bar, dropped his trousers, and placed his privates in the alligator’s open mouth. The gator closed his mouth as the crowd gasped. After a minute, the man grabbed a beer bottle and rapped the alligator hard on the top of its head. The gator opened his mouth and the man removed his genitals unscathed as promised. The crowd cheered and the first of his free drinks were delivered. The man stood up again and made another offer. He said, “I’ll pay anyone $100 who’s willing to give it a try.” A hush fell over the crowd. After a while, a hand went up at the end of the bar and a woman timidly spoke up. “I’ll try, but you have to promise not to hit me on the head with a beer bottle.”

A man goes to a bar with his dog. He goes up to the bar and asks for a drink. The bartender says, “You can’t bring that dog in here!” The guy, without missing a beat, says, “This is my seeing-eye dog.” “Oh man,” the bartender says, “I’m sorry. Here, the first one’s on me.” The man takes his drink and goes to a table near the door. Another guy walks in the bar with a Chihuahua. The first guy sees him, stops him and says, “You can’t bring that dog in here unless you tell the bartender it’s a seeing-eye dog.” The second man graciously thanks the first man and continues to the bar. He asks for a drink. The bartender says, “Hey, you can’t bring that dog in here!” The second man replies, “This is my seeing-eye dog.” The bartender says, “No, I don’t think so. They don’t have Chihuahuas as seeing-eye dogs.” The man pauses for a half-second and replies, “What? They gave me a Chihuahua?”

THE FRank’s stunt double

Hi Frank,

My boyfriend plays video games ALL… THE… TIIIIME! To the point where I honestly feel second place. How do I get him to pay attention to MEEE? Shayla Any man who would rather shoot pretend terrorists than touch real boobs doesn’t deserve the option. Dumping him is almost too nice. I think you should plan to sleep with his best friend during his next quest or campaign, then text him a picture of the act with the words GAME OVER. But I’m old fashioned that way. FRANK FACT: Until you’ve mastered Pong, you will get no gamer respect from Frank.

Hey Frank,

Here’s one for you. My boyfriend has a mullet. Like an honest-to-god mullet. He’s really proud of it too. Of course he doesn’t call it a mullet. He just thinks he has “really cool long hair.” What… THE HELL… do I do about this? Jaclyn Let your carpet region grow into a tropical forest and say you’ll get a trim when he does. I’m betting he blinks first… probably after he gets poked in the eye. FRANK THOUGHTS: “Business in the front, party in the back,” sounds like you dig backdoor action.

Hey Frank,

I am so freakin STRESSED. All the time. Family stuff. Boyfriend stuff. School stuff (summer classes). I know you used to be all high strung and now you’re apparently all Zen. Any advice for getting past this? Sandy MY solution was “selfmedicating” to the point of almost dying and losing all motor function for a few months. It’s pretty easy (read: obligatory) to stay mellow after that. Probably not the go-to solution you were looking for though. Have you tried yoga or crap like that? FRANK FACT: Frank has been banned from every yoga studio in the state for continually farting in downward-facing dog.

Yo Frank,

Have you ever seen or listened to Dan Savage? That guy gives way better sex advice than you! Axel Have you ever met or kissed my ass? Because it doesn’t actually care if you get laid or not. FRANK FACT: The original idea for this column was to have Frank’s ass dispense the advice. Advertisers and common decency killed that plan.

Dear Frank,

My roommate keeps filling our DVR with episodes of Jeopardy. How do I get him to stop? Joel In addition to deleting anything over a month old, I say you switch his settings to record the Spanish version and see how long before he asks, “Que Pasa?” FRANK FACT: Frank still tapes his shows on a VCR.

Help Frank!

My brother keeps trying to act like an overprotective dad with any guy I’m with, grilling him with questions and acting like he’s a serial killer who’s going to rape my corpse. How do I get him to butt out? Sarita Um… I’m going to assume that this is only going on because you’re both home for the summer, which means you may just have to do all your conjugal activities at your flavor of the week’s house. If it’s an ongoing thing even while you’re at school, maybe I’m guessing it wasn’t the best idea to share an apartment with a family member. FRANK THOUGHTS: Paying family members are the only ones allowed to dispense unsolicited advice.

FRANK FACT: Frank needed an intern to interpret that email for him.

Hi Frank,

My boyfriend smokes. I really like everything else about him, but can’t stand this disgusting habit. No amount of pressure seems to get him to quit. Any thoughts? Laurin Lots of girlfriends will try to withhold sex as a way of providing motivation, but even the finest of booty (that is a term you young people still use right?) is no match for full-blown nicotine addiction. Rather than punishing him for it, switch to a reward-based system. For every Big O he gives you, he is allowed to smoke one in your presence. It won’t get him to quit, but at least it’ll allow YOU to reap some benefits out of his habit. On the other hand he may just dump you for another smoker. FRANK FACT: Since quitting, Frank has substituted his post-sex cigarette for a post-sex Big Mac. Farting and clogged arteries are more socially acceptable than lung cancer.

Frank Frank FRANK!

My girl is flat as a board. How can I convince her to get a boob job without looking like an a-hole? Fitz Pay for it. FRANK THOUGHTS: They’re real if you can touch’em.

Dear Frank,

I have the chance to study in Europe next semester but I’m afraid of what it will mean for me and my boyfriend. That’s a long time to be apart and remain faithful. What do you think? Leah Are you worried about him remaining faithful or you remaining faithful? Because, if you both sleep around it’s not really cheating, is it. FRANK FACT: Frank thinks French women are way sexier than American women even though they don’t shave their pits. Sexual liberation trumps good grooming every time.

CRUEL AND UNUSUAL… YA THINK?

History’s

Most Notorious

h t Dea

by Brian Hodges

The Death Penalty. Throughout history it has been the ruling class’s ultimate bargaining chip. Only recently have cries of “cruel and unusual punishment” made the government rethink its highest act of law and order. But as execution laws are gradually overturned and devices such as the gallows and the electric chair are replaced by more “civilized” means, be glad for the era you live in. Not so long ago, speaking out against capital punishment would probably have earned you a governmentsanctioned execution, courtesy of these far more painful and creative methods. 30

DEATH BY ELEPHANT

SCHAPISM

A means of death so horrible that even Dante mentions it in his eighth circle of hell, this hollow brass bull was a favored killing contraption in Ancient Greece. After stuffing the condemned inside, a fire was set underneath the bull, turning it into a giant slow cooker. An intricate system of acoustics converted all those agonizing screams into the sweet bellowing sounds of a riled up bull… so as not to disrupt the emperor’s mealtime. As if all that wasn’t atrocious and degrading enough, the victim’s heatpolished bones were later broken up and turned into bracelets.

Remember as a kid how freaked out you got when Dumbo’s mom went on that rampage? Now imagine yourself lying beneath her, and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what it meant to be a condemned criminal throughout India and Southeast Asia up until the 1700s. Since elephants are highly trainable animals, the severity of your sentence depended largely upon the Maharaja’s mood. If you were lucky, he’d just order that big bag of leather to stomp on your head. But if it was a spectacle the crowd desired, old Elsie could use her feet, trunk and “hardwareaccented” tusks to do all sorts of neat-o things to your defenseless tax-evading body.

the third book of Maccabees, angels thwarted an Egyptian pharaoh’s “mass elephantization” of the Jews under his rule.

Criminals in Ancient Persia would have welcomed our sissy old electric chair compared to what awaited them. In schapism, the prisoner was tied naked to a wooden boat and force-fed milk and honey to the point of diarrhea. Whilst they relieved themselves, additional honey was spread all over their skin. Set adrift on a stagnant pond, the sweet smell of sugar and feces would attract all manner of insects who then stung, bit and bore the doomed sailor to their liking. Eventual death by some combination of starvation, dehydration and sepsis often took up to a week, though insanity was nice enough to set in after just a couple hours. killing a Persian prince, a man named Mithridates survived seventeen days before his schapism finally ended.

Totally useless fact: Coca-Cola contained Coca (whose active ingredient is cocaine) from 1885 to 1903.


CRUEL AND UNUSUAL… YA THINK?

Penal ties BLOOD EAGLE The Vikings didn’t like entrusting their executions to wild beasts or over-elaborate contraptions. Preferring to get in there with their own bare hands, these Norse alpha males began by cutting, breaking and yanking the victim’s ribs out through their back – giving the appearance of bloodstained wings. After that, the sons of Odin would reach in and pull out the lungs of their gasping plaything. Assuming the battered eagle survived that far, salt was then sprinkled into the wounds… and, for all we know, turned into a post-execution haggis feast. NOTABLE USES: In the book

Hannibal by Thomas Harris, everyone’s favorite cannibal, Hannibal Lecter prepares one of his “meals” via the Blood Eagle.

CRUCIFIXION

No discussion of capital punishment would be complete without mentioning the crucifix: a death so fashionable that it transcended time. No seriously, this popular method of execution began somewhere around the Babylonian Empire (circa 1700 B.C.) and was handed down from nation to conquering nation all the way up to the Romans – who really brought it into the mainstream. After tying or nailing the prisoner’s arms to a wooden crossbeam, death came (slowly) in the form of asphyxiation as the weight of their own body effectively crushed their lungs. Bodies were usually left hanging as a not-so-subtle reminder to the rest of the population. NOTABLE USES: Xena Warrior

HISTORY LESSON!

In History

This Month

By Naomi Piercey

There’s no denying… it’s heating up for sure! Know what else is hot? JUNE HISTORY, you fool! Here at CT, we like to slurp down our Mai Tais and history at the same time, and we figure you could do with some summer studying, too. But trust us – it’s not as bad as it seems. At least not as bad as the actual summer school you’re in right this very second. 1st 1938:

The Superman comic was published. Let me just say, no journalist has ever looked as sexy.

2nd 1886:

We all know the stories of White House promiscuity, but during this June, President Grover Cleveland turned down all of his interns’ advances and tied the knot while in office. Lucky for his wife… she got to live in the White House without all the cruel months of washing dishes on the campaign trail.

3rd 1964:

The rolling stones began their first U.S. tour this month. Genius. Also, young men across America began emulating Mick Jagger. Mistake.

6th 1933:

The first drive-in theater opened in Camden, New Jersey. It wasn’t the first time that teenagers would have sex in the backseat of a car, but it was the first time they’d do it while trying not to watch a movie at the same time.

june 2012

7th 1775:

The United Colonies became the United States. Yeah, I totally agree with our Founding Fathers – “colonies” sounds super lame.

9th 1934:

Donald Duck made his debut in June ‘34. Oh, the ‘30s… a time when big corporations wouldn’t get in trouble for making fun of someone with a lisp.

11th 1982:

The famous movie “E.T.” was released. If only we had known that little Drew Barrymore was going to turn into a druggie, recover, be in a hot-girl movie with Cameron Diaz and then date a loser like Justin Long. Oh well… it was still a cool movie.

14th 1942:

Walt Disney released the smash-hit “Bambi” on this day. But, we all know what they should have called it – “Brace yourself, the little dude’s mom totally gets shot by a hunter and dies.” That would have definitely saved a lot of tears when we were younger.

28th 1820:

NEWS FLASH: On this day, it was discovered that the tomato – that scary red fruit/ vegetable thing – is actually NOT poisonous. If it weren’t for some daring soul, we wouldn’t have salsa, spaghetti sauce or (gasp!) pizza.

14th 1775:

The U.S. Army was formed. Why? Well, gosh darn it, we had to fight the British! And what are they doing today? Whatever it is, I’m sure it has nothing to do with the Monarchy and tea-drinking chaps.

Whether you’re in a yo-yo relationship, have a yo-yo diet or just a have an actual affinity for yo-yos… break out the champagne because it’s National Yo-Yo Day! It’s actually Donald Duncan’s (the guy who made these silly things so popular in the U.S.) birthday today so “shoot the moon” or “walk the dog” in celebration of his marketing techniques. Just a few facts about these ironically easy contraptions:

Some say yo-yos originated between 500–1000 B.C. That’s an old-ass toy if you ask me. The word “yo-yo” may be derived from the Filipino word, “tayoyo,” which means “to spin,” NOT a doubled form of street slang (which I’m guessing you learned from an older brother who enjoyed molding you into a social outcast).

The largest yo-yo is 256 lbs. That’s like 2 ½ anorexic models, which might sound easy but would still take a really strong wrist to curl back and forth on a string. In 1992, a yo-yo took a trip into space, thanks to Jeffery Hoffman on the Shuttle Atlantis. The aliens are having a field day with this ball on a string conception. It’s no wonder they feel bad for us.

Totally useless fact: The only domestic animal not mentioned in the Bible is the cat.

How to

Sex &ics Polit

Get A-Head In the World

of Lust Has sex become nothing more than a political quagmire marked by hidden agendas, steamy affairs, and sexy scandals? Despite our supposed “party loyalties,” are we all independents at heart who want nothing more than to get our freaks on, even if it means transcending across party lines, cheating on our significant others and casting our vote for the candidate who promises to redistrict our erogenous zones effectively? I ask you, my fellow citizens, are we all really free riders lobbying for more benefits and less commitment? Why are we so consumed with attaining what we can’t have, rather than what we can?

Whether it be a forbidden boss/employee relationship, a taboo teacher/student encounter, or an infamous president/intern liaison, one relationship we seek is the man/ woman relationship. No wonder things get political when it comes to sex. Please don’t get the wrong idea here. I’m just campaigning for better sex, and I’m not afraid to take a firm, liberal position in order to do so. When our forefathers framed the constitution, they set forth inalienable rights that we, as citizens, can all take full advantage of. And let me tell you, I believe wholeheartedly in the right to bare arms, shoulders and midriffs.

But, if showing a little flesh indeed grants us some special benefits, it seems as if we’ll eventually come to a point where we’ll take advantage of these rights and use them to seduce people into becoming stripped of their inhibitions and their protective clothes. Has sex then, become nothing more than a tag game in which the players engage in a sexy game of skill, strategy and chance? If so, you’re it. Do you cheat on your significant other and randomly sample what’s out there, or do you stay loyal to your party? Or, do you plead the fifth? We have to ask ourselves, do we really want that oh-so-sexy forbidden affair, or are we just programmed to think we do? It seems as if infidelity is becoming more and more accepted in our society. But there comes a point when we must realize that the right choice isn’t always popular, and the popular choice isn’t always right. Whether

we’re republicans or democrats, we must ask ourselves, is the enemy really a member from the opposing party? Or, is the greatest enemy indeed thyself? It seems as if our greatest threat to achieving personal freedom is our inner weaknesses that fall prey to untamed lust. While many people view political leaders as superior and knowledgeable, it’s important to realize that sometimes even heroes run out of super powers and fall short of the same scruples we forgo when we cheat. When it comes to relationships then, be democratic and realize that everyone has a choice in what they do… or what they don’t do. So don’t cheat yourself out of an honorable and dignified sense of self. Instead, vote for me, Julie Gracemen, for house whip. Just make sure you punch the hole in my butterfly ballot when doing so!

SUMMER FUN! By Kelli McKinney

Loads of Fun with

CT’s Miniature

Football Since we know how boring your life is going to be this summer, we thought we’d help you out. We’ve come up with a revolutionary game that will entertain you, and anyone else you suck into playing, for hours upon hours. Okay, so this game has actually been occupying kids’ time in class since the dawn of man, playing it while their boring teachers drone on about things they’ll later wished they had paid attention to. But, we thought we’d reintroduce it to the college population and give you a chance to pass the time quicker when you’re stuck at your parents’ house while all your friends are gallivanting across the country on some cool summer trip.

Step 1:

Cut paper along solid lines to make three strips. Each will be used to create its own football.

1

Step 2:

Turn strip of paper over so that dotted lines are face down. Starting at the top left corner, fold along the diagonal then straight lines until you get to the last straight line.

Step 3: Fold the bottom left corner along the dotted line.

2

Step 4:

Fold bottom triangle along the straight line and tuck into the top triangle to create one triangle.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 2 through 4 for other two strips of paper.

4

3 play ball

In five easy steps, you’ll be ready to play against the most worthy of opponents with three amazingly folded paper footballs! We figured three would be more than enough to cover the ones that inevitably end up crumpled in the trash, because they poked your mom in the forehead one too many times. Basically, the rules are simple. Have your opponent stand on the opposite side of a table and make a goal post using his thumb and pointer fingers. You place one corner of the triangle on the table, holding it in place with your pointer finger. Then, taking the opportunity to hit him in the eye, nose or forehead, flick the football across the table in an attempt to get it through the “goal posts.” Best out of three wins, or until all the footballs end up in the trash. 42

“That is very nice,” muted his mother. “You can go upstairs and start with your room.”

On his very first day of work, he dials the pantry and shouts into the phone, “Get me a coffee, quickly!” The voice from the other side responded, “You fool you’ve dialed the wrong extension! Do you know who you’re talking to, dumbo?” “No,” replied the trainee. “It’s the CEO of the company, you fool!”

A DASH OF THIS, A HEAP OF THAT

Cafeteria A

re you sick of the cafeteria yet, with all its bland, featureless food just this side of the expiration date? How any freshman manages to pile on 15 pounds by scarfing down that crap is almost as mysterious as the ingredients in Monday night’s “Meat and Cheese Casserole.” Of course, unless you’re dating a Subway employee who hooks you up with free sandwiches, you most likely can’t afford not to eat on campus. But cafeteria food doesn’t need to be the cause of unintentional anorexia… or bulimia for the more committed among us. By properly utilizing a few key condiments, you can make even the most disgusting slop on your meal plan seem downright edible.

WARNING:

Essential Condiments for

GREEN TABASCO SAUCE Cheese is the glue that can hold even the most disparate of ingredients together. Even ground beef mixed with lima beans, turnip, kale, pepperoni and stewed prunes doesn’t taste like such a strange combination with a couple handfuls of stringy mozzarella swirled throughout. Sprinkling a little cheddar over the top of a salad can also serve to make the lettuce feel not so limp.

Use this little bottle to zest up everything from burgers to eggs. Unlike its fiery red counterpart, “Green T” packs just enough punch to wake up your tastebuds without overpowering them so much that you can’t taste anything. You may just find yourself bounding out of bed in the morning for a double helping of the line cook’s signature runny omelet. As an added side benefit, this particular condiment may also encourage you to meet your daily recommended intake of water.

GARLIC POWDER

CROUTONS

SHREDDED CHEESE

Seriously, how can a group of (supposedly) trained culinary professionals screw up something as simple as pizza? I’m not sure either, but they’ve apparently committed themselves to the task. Create your own little corner of Little Italy by dumping generous heaps of garlic powder onto pizza, pasta or any other concoction that utilizes cheese and tomato sauce. Just make sure to carry breath mints wherever you go. 52

We’ve all seen what they can do for salads, but feel free to sprinkle or crumble these tasty seasoned bread crumbs into any dish that’s at least 50 percent liquid: soup, stew, chili or the aforementioned Monday night mystery dish. Sometimes a little crunch is all it takes to trick your taste buds into thinking you’re eating something worthwhile, and not, shall we say, something even the dog was too proud to bother with.

SALT

An obvious one, yet one that should be held in reserve for when all other condiments have failed to produce palatable results. No need to go clogging our arteries unless absolutely necessary, am I right?

PEANUT BUTTER

Face it, some meals are beyond salvation no matter what you pour into it. When all else fails, a PB & J sandwich is the ideal standby for one very important reason: none of the ingredients were made by the cafeteria staff. They didn’t bake the bread. They didn’t mix the peanut butter. They didn’t puree the jelly. It may not be the classiest meal you’ll ever eat, but at least you can rest easy in the knowledge that there is absolutely no conceivable way the cooks could have screwed this one up.

THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY AS FOLLOWS: WHEREAS, the booty caller may decline to participate in activities of the booty call at any moment. Acceptable “declining statements” include, but are not limited to, the following: • I have a headache. • Can we just spoon? • This was NOT a booty call! • You better not try anything, smartass.

Signature of Booty Caller

WHEREAS, the booty callee understands that the following actions, although confusing and seemingly opposite in their meaning, do not necessarily guarantee a booty call will take place: • The mentioning of sexual puns and innuendos • A verbal agreement to “hook-up” • Removal of clothes • Kissing, touching or any body contact • The signing of this document

WHEREAS, it is understood that the consumption of alcoholic beverages, incessant video-game playing, loud burping or farting, poor physical hygiene, the mention of an ex-girlfriend or any other female, regardless of her relation to you, or no good reason at all may be grounds for breech of contract. NOTE: Callee may re-initiate denied contact or action if, and only if, it is pre-empted by a formal request to the caller, done without any form of force or coercion, and as long as callee knows the result of his request may be a hard slap in the face (in some instances it may result in a quick blow to the testicles, but this has only been recorded in 22 percent of cases.

FASTER, HIGHER, NAKEDER by Brian Hodges

A Brief

and totally incomplete

H istory of the Olympics



Has it been four years already? The Thirtieth Olympiad kicks off in London at the end of the month. Time to beef up on a bit of Olympic history, nerds.

THE RELIGIOUS TIE-IN

The ancient Greeks loved their athletics almost as much as their petty philandering deities, so pretty much every year saw an athletic gathering in honor of whichever god was up. But it was the festival of Zeus in the town of Olympia every four years that drew the biggest crowds who came as much for the scene (which featured animal sacrifice, fire eaters and enough prostitutes to put Amsterdam to shame) as they did for the games. Which is why the Christian Emperor Theodosius banned the pagan tradition in 393 A.D after over twelve hundred years of observance – proving once again, the only thing the Church is comfortable with sacrificing is the sex lives of its followers.

THE MODERN ERA

The Olympics wouldn’t return for another 1500 years when a Frenchman, Pierre de Coubertin turned them into a vanity project for his homeland. Upset over France’s defeat in the Franco-Prussian war, de Coubertin realized his countrymen were severely lacking in sports and other physical pursuits. His attempts to institute national athletic organizations were met with a palpable lack of enthusiasm from people who apparently preferred drinking wine and eating baguettes. Not to be deterred, de Coubertin aimed even higher, inspiring the formation of the International Olympic Committee which has overseen the modern games ever since. Thanks to de Coubertin, the games have run uninterrupted every four years since 1896… save for three times when pesky world wars got in the way.

THE GAMES

While events like gymnastics, the marathon and all team sports wouldn’t make an appearance until modern times, the ancient Olympiad’s original competition involved only a single foot race across the stadium. As the tradition continued, other races (including one performed in full military armor) were added as well as more hard-core events like chariot races, javelin throws from horseback and a long jump where athletes threw lead weights to increase their distance. Boxing matches that went on too long would be decided by having the fighters take turns slamming each other in the face until one went down. But it was the pancration event that truly gave the ancient games some bad ass street cred. The UFC of its time, the only rules in pancration were no biting or eye gouging. Beyond that you could punch, kick and sleeper hold your opponent at will until they tapped out, knocked out or dropped dead.

THE OLYMPIC FLAME THE ATHLETES

To say the Greeks were fans of the human form would be an understatement. Even the word “gymnasium” derives from the Greek word for “naked”. As such, most Olympians competed not only nude, but greased up in olive oil. Even women (who weren’t allowed at the Olympics, but had their own separate games) competed in tunics that exposed their right breast. Rather than gold medals, the victors received a palm branch or crown made of olive leaves. The real reward came later though, when every vestal virgin for twenty stadia clamored to be an unofficial Aphrodite priestess for the night. Back home, winners were greeted as heroes and even given special doors to the city which only they could enter. Compare that to today’s winners, whose biggest reward is a potsmoking video that suddenly goes viral.

Totally useless fact: Bingo is the name of the dog on the Cracker Jack box.

This indelible symbol dates back to the ancient games where it commemorated the theft of fire by Prometheus for all humanity. The Flame made its initial comeback during the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam, but the torch relay wouldn’t be introduced until eight years later in Berlin as part of a Nazi PR stunt… which, as you might expect, led to numerous protests in the following years. Still the tradition stuck. Several months before the Olympics are scheduled to start, the relay torch is lit at the site of the ancient games in Olympia. Eleven women, representing the Vestal Virgins, use a special mirror to focus the sun’s rays and ignite the torch. The path the torch takes varies by year and location, but almost always culminates with a famous local athlete lighting the flame during the opening ceremony. Points for most badass lighting, in this writer’s humble opinion, go to Barcelona in 1992 for lighting the torch with a flamin’ freakin’ ARROW! campus talk

FIRE IT UP HARDCORE

Secrets for the Wannabe by Brian Hodges

Grill Master Any Neanderthal can throw a slab of animal carcass onto a grill. But if you really want to keep people coming to your backyard barbecues, it’s time to crank it up a notch. Here are a few choice ingredients that will make you a grill god amongst cavemen.

FRESH BASIL & PARSLEY Best For: Steak Strips, Chicken Strips

Head to the produce section and grab one bunch of parsley and one bunch of basil. Coarsely chop in equal proportion and throw into a bowl with a 2:1 mixture of olive oil and lemon juice. Add a bit of salt, a bit of pepper and some crushed garlic. While you’re usually supposed to marinate meat for several hours, marinades with fresh herbs are best used within minutes of creation. So throw in your meat of choice and let it sit just long enough to warm up the grill. Chicken can go on pre-sliced, but for ultimate juiciness, grill your steak whole before cutting into strips. Baste frequently and be prepared for flare-ups due to all the oil. Then serve on hotdog rolls for a treat that will forever ruin hotdogs for you and everyone you know.

ITALIAN DRESSING Best For: Vegetables

Hey, just because we’re alpha males making fire doesn’t mean we can’t have a comparatively girly vegetable or two. I hear they have vitamins in them and stuff. But when served next to all that amazing meat product we’ve been making, these things have really got to stand out. Italian dressing will accomplish exactly that. Cut your vegetables into one-inch chunks (bell peppers, onions, zucchini, eggplant and mushrooms work great) and throw them into a plastic bag with the dressing to marinate overnight. Stick them on wooden skewers and grill slowly on the top rack, basting frequently. You never knew not-meat could be so delectable.

BACON BUTTER Best For: Steak, Burgers

So long as we’re clogging our arteries, this heart-hating, tongue-loving concoction will create dozens of adoring fans and/or kill every house guest you’ve ever had. A couple hours before you grill, melt a stick of butter in a frying pan with finely chopped bacon and onion. Sauté until the bacon is thoroughly cooked then transfer to a small glass bowl with a few generous squirts of spicy mustard. Stir and let solidify in the fridge. For steaks, drop a silver dollar on top immediately prior to serving, and slather. For burgers, you can just form your patties around a tablespoonsized lump. You and your guests will be sweating lipids all afternoon, but hypertension never tasted so good. 82

AH-SO CHINESE SAUCE Best For: Ribs, Wings

This stuff is pretty much identical to the sticky red sauce Chinese restaurants put on spare ribs. Slather it over ribs or wings for something that will have your guests licking their fingers. There’s a bit of debate over whether you should sauce up before grilling or in the final minutes, so hey you might as well experiment with both. This product is huge in Massachusetts of all places, and hard to find anywhere outside the Northeast. But the miracle of the internet means you can order by the gross and see for yourself what a few million Red Sox fans have already discovered. Yankees Suck! Ah-So does not. … and come on, seriously how much fun is it to say that name in what will inevitably be an offensive Chinese accent?

WOOD CHIPS Best For: Damn Near EVERYTHING

What is it about campfire smoke that makes everything so damn tasty? I don’t know either, but it’s super easy to recreate the effect in your backyard. Head to the grill section of any big box store and you’ll see an array of differently “flavored” wood chips like hickory and mesquite. Soak the chips ahead of time in anything that inspires you – beer, whiskey, merlot, even water! Dump the chips into a smoke box, which you can get for less than twenty dollars (or improvise your own by poking holes in aluminum foil) and place between the burners and grill grate. Cook slowly and – to quote a friend and grill Nazi – “Leave the damn lid CLOSED!” The taste of the great outdoors meets the… slightly-more-fenced-in outdoors.

A RIDDLE, INSIDE A MYSTERY, WRAPPED IN A COPY OF CAMPUS TALK!

How 2

Become a Man of

The loner. The recluse. The mystery man. The guy who is such an enigma that others can’t help but find him interesting, cool and, yes, even sexy. You want this power but, sadly, you are not cool. So when auditioning (badly) for American Idol does nothing to enhance your popularity, try making a few changes and raise your social standing with a mysterious allure. By Brian Hodges

YOUR APPEARANCE

You don’t have to go all shaggy hair, dark sunglasses and black trenchcoat to achieve mystery status. We’re going for sexy/ mysterious here, not oh-mygod-this-guy-is-going-to-killme/mysterious. Your wardrobe should set you apart as somebody who doesn’t give a crap about what the current trends are. It could be a collection of vintage t-shirts of The Clash or The Smurfs… really anything except Hollister High School. On the other hand, it could be a full suit and tie that you wear all day every day… even to breakfast… even on Saturdays… to the beach. Whatever the fashion statement, be consistent so everyone everywhere understands that the look is uniquely, and unapologetically, yours. 84

Mystery YOUR PHILOSOPHY

Every idea, spoken or otherwise, that emanates from your person should be shrouded in political and ideological obscurity. Whether it’s the books by Aristotle, Nietchze and Machiavelli that you’re seen reading around campus, the quotes from Karl Marx, Howard Zinn and Richard Dawkins that you regurgitate during coffee house discussions, or even those perplexing bumper stickers on your car that say, Rational Miser, Absorb and Degrade, or simply even Schwa, (You may need to Goggle these meanings!) Everything you say – which, incidentally, should be very little – must make others think you are an enigmatic thinker who somehow bears the unfortunate burden of knowing the full Truth.

YOUR HOBBY

Just like in the movies, every handsome mystery-freak should have some kind of odd pastime – whether it be something dangerous like playing chicken, something rebellious like destroying parking meters or something totally lame like videotaping plastic bags. Hobbies involving some equally strange prop – gyroscope, abacus, wood-burning stylus – are the best choices. Whatever leisure activity you choose, it should be eccentric enough to prompt others to inquire about it. And when they do, be prepared with a self-evident response – “What, you’ve never seen a guy inscribing cat hairs before?” – indicating that this is just another average day for a shadowy figure such as yourself.

YOUR COMMITMENT

Mystery can’t be achieved overnight. Above all else, you must allow sufficient time for the enigmatic mystery that is “you” to permeate the collective consciousness. Otherwise, everyone will recognize you for the poser that you really are. So stick with it. Stay dark. Stay mysterious. Above all, stay focused. Show everyone over and over again that you truly don’t care about what anyone thinks of you… even though, mysteriously, that’s really all you care about.

Totally useless fact: There are approximately 100 million acts of sexual intercourse each day.


BOGUS LOGOS!

we’re not kidding! It’s all about raising brand awareness, not suspicions. The message you send to the public is of the utmost importance. And if it’s one that promotes sex with kids – well, that is a customer base that you want nothing to do with. Plus – where were the board meetings for these logos? A second opinion could have saved these companies. To save yours, CT put together five serious rules to follow when deciding what to plaster on your office window:

By Naomi Piercey

NO HUMPING. Yes, you might see it at the club. Hell, you might like to do it in your spare time, but unless you want your customers to be lonely husbands, sex-crazed state senators or horny canines, you must eliminate humping from your logo. An easy way to do it is to recognize what constitutes a human image and refraining from backing them up to each other (spooning is also frowned upon). Obviously, this guy should have gotten a second opinion.

NO ILLEGAL ACTIVITY. No matter if it insinuates drug use, theft or the idea that you give children sex change operations, it’s just wrong. Plus, you need an adult signature for some of that. I don’t care if it makes you more money in the end. The government will eventually come after you (although it seems at the moment they have their hands full overseas), and when they do, you’ll have a lot of explaining to do. One look at this and I can tell that these guys did NOT get a second opinion.

NO PEDOPHILIA. People don’t like people who have sex with kids. You get ousted from your community, have to introduce yourself to your new neighbors and might end up on How to Catch a Predator. The Catholic Church agrees – ordained or not, it’s looked down upon. And. . .everyone hates you! So why brand your company with a suspicious image? It’s a pediatric center – just show a damn baby and be done with it. Once again – no second opinion.

NO PENISES. While the male species is usually quite proud to show off what defines their manhood, women, quite frankly, don’t like the looks of those things. So when one stares you down from a company logo, especially when it seems to be reaching climax, we don’t think it’s a turn ON. And although it may seem to give a message that your company is always ready to perform, your customers might not take it that way. Way to get a second opinion, doctor.

NO INTERCOURSE. The “No sex in public” rule doesn’t discriminate between real people and drawings of people. And although many people may have had sex with their dentists, unless you’re running some sort of kinky doctor/patient role-play brothel in Nevada, I don’t think this logo will sell teeth cleaning. But hey, you have us laughing! I’m kind of glad this guy didn’t get that second opinion!

GET A SECOND OPINION! Totally useless fact: In England, the Speaker of the House of Commons is not allowed to speak.

An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again. The boy asked his father, “What is this, Father?” The father [never having seen an elevator] responded “Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.” While the boy and his father were watching, an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24-year-old woman stepped out. The father said to his son, “Go get your mother.”

june 2012

By Kelli McKinney

Before the turn of the century, most people didn’t have a clue what C-4 was, let alone how it worked or how to make it. Recently, it’s become an alltoo-familiar term appearing in newspapers and on television in relation to many military happenings. And thanks to shows like 24, it has also gained popularity through exposure in wfilms and video games.

Totally useless fact: Forty percent of people snoop in the host’s medicine cabinet.


What is it?:

C-4, or composition 4, is one variety of plastic explosive that is primarily used for military & commercial demolition. The basic idea behind plastic explosives is to combine explosive chemicals with a plastic binder material, making it less sensitive to shock and heat and highly malleable, allowing it to be molded into different shapes to change the direction of the explosion. The explosion consists of two phases. The first, the initial expansion, causes most of the damage. The second occurs when the gases rush back into the partial vacuum, creating a less-destructive inward energy wave.

How powerful is it?:

As with many explosives, a small amount of C-4 packs a pretty big punch. Less than a pound of the explosive material could potentially kill several people. A military issue M-112 block of C-4, weighing about 1.25 pounds, could easily demolish a truck. Fortunately for you, we have the ingredients and recipe to make a C-4 explosive at homeâ&#x20AC;Ś did you really think we would publish something like that in our magazine? You must be crazy.

How do you set it off?:

Even in the unlikeliest of events that you just happen to stumble over one of these explosives, it would take a lot to set one off. Simply trying to light it with a match has only the same affect as burning a piece of wood. A detonator, with its application of both heat and pressure, would preferably be the best way to set off one of these big-time explosivesâ&#x20AC;Ś but let me see you find one of those at the local Wal-Mart.

Usages of C-4?:

Military teams and commercial demolition companies often use C-4 at demolition sites. The amount of explosive they use is usually more than required, guaranteeing successful completion of the demolition. Soldiers would sometimes use small amounts of C-4 as a fuel for heating food while on long patrols during the Vietnam War era. Michael Herr relates in his book Dispatches that a soldier would occasionally ingest C-4 from his claymore mines in order to be sent on sick leave. The plot often didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, though, as experienced commanders knew the trick and would force the man to keep fighting.

Advantages:

A major advantage of C-4 is that it can easily be molded into any desired shape. Because of its puddy-like form, C-4 can be pressed into gaps or voids in buildings, bridges, equipment or machinery. C-4 is also well known for its durability, reliability, and safety. It will not explode even if hit by a bullet, punched, cut, or thrown into a fire.

Disadvantages:

In their purest form, plastic explosives are very difficult to detect. They are odorless and free from metal compounds that might be picked up by detectors.

Interesting

Fact: C-4 is 1.34 times as explosive as trinitrotoluene (TNT).

Totally useless fact: The average raindrop falls at 7 miles per hour.
