The 9 Hardest Classes at A&M

1. MATH 409 – Advanced Calculus
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.44.22 PM
This class is basically just proofs, right? You know what there is no proof for? Bigfoot. Now THAT would be a hard class.

2. MGMT 211 – Business Law
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.44.47 PM
Tort Law kind of sounds like turtle. That’s fun, right? Turtles swim! Oh God, not Swim.

3. MEEN 363 – Dynamics and Vibration
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.45.04 PM
I mean, how complicated are vibrations, really? Plenty of things vibrate. My XBOX controller vibrates all the time, and I am freaking great at XBOX.

4. PHYS 208 – Electricity and Optics
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.45.17 PM
You might remember this one from freshman year … or from the recurring nightmares that just won’t seem to go away. Does the smiling lightning bolt make things any better?

5. CHEM 328 – Organic Chemistry II
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.45.37 PM
How hard is it to draw hexagons? I was drawing parallelograms in first grade.

6. ACCT 327 – Financial Reporting
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.45.56 PM
If I can account to 10, then I can account to 327. Yawn. Try accounting to 1000.

7. NUEN 418 – Fuel Assembly and 3-D Reactor Core Design and Modeling
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.46.13 PM
No jokes here. This class sounds like Hell.

8. RPTS 371 – Skills for Youth Development
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.46.33 PM
Oh, you think this one is just a joke, huh? You ever tried raising kids? I didn’t think so. This class is a full time job for, like, billions of people. This should be core curriculum.

9. MGDN 215 – Intro to Satire Writing
Screen Shot 2014-12-11 at 1.46.46 PM
Literally no one on our staff passed this class. Do with that what you will, just don’t judge.

Love Me Tinder: Lonely “Lola” Lighter Takes Tinder

“Damn girl, you’re hot.”

This past week, I took my loneliness to a new low and created a Tinder profile under the name “Lola Lighter”. Apparently, “Lonely” isn’t a “real name”. Let’s just say sparks flew, and 152 matches later, I picked my favorite flames to share with you all.


Who knew flames could be so sexy?

1. Some people did not seem to care at all that they were talking to a lighter.





At least this one seemed a little excited.

2. Others just wanted to figure me out.






They obviously missed their opportunity with this flame.

3. Most people were really good at grammar.





I never figured out who Tony was.


I’m not entirely sure what this one was even supposed to say.

4. These charmers just made it too easy, so I did what lighters do best.





Double burn.

5. It was obvious that some of these boys listen to too much Drake. 0 to 100, real quick.





Zero. The answer is zero because have you seen what people say on here?


Gag me. Wait, that didn’t come out right.

6. A few got a good laugh out of the whole thing.





7. At least one may have been on the wrong app.



8. I tried singing a little to lighten the mood. It didn’t really work.
Thank you Billy Joel and Barry Manilow.


He really went for it and made up his own lyrics.



At the Copacabana, don’t fall in love.

9. And then the puns. All the puns.
These people actually tried to kindle a relationship with a lighter.







And here we have a perfect, literal description of the life of a lighter. Bravo, sir. Bravo.



Skeptics. Am I right?




It was fun for a while, and then it got really old.


10. I did let a few people see my true, lonely soul.





In short, I feel pretty confident in my decision to never get a personal Tinder. If this is what the future holds for dating, I am pretty freaking terrified.

Professor of Religious Studies Encourages Students to “Put the X Back in X-mas”

You may be hearing a new rally cry throughout campus this holiday season. Instead of the normal “Keep Christ in Christmas,” Dr. Jim Nail,  Professor of Religious Studies, is encouraging his students to “put the X back in X-mas.”

Following Thanksgiving break, students have been heard complaining about the excessive number of questions from Aunt Barb and Uncle Joe on why they were not in a relationship. These came before the complaints about grandma’s lack of grandchildren. Professor Nail decided to campaign for change before Christmas break.

“The solution to this problem is simple, really. It lies in the folder of screenshots and awkward girl’s-hand-on-the-guy’s-stomach-like-he-is-expecting-a-child couple pictures on our computers. You know, the ones with our exes, that we tell our friends we deleted,” said Professor Nail.

He explained, “The best way to avoid questions about your relationship status is to get back with your ex. Whether it just be for a few key events, like Christmas dinner or New Year’s Eve, or even for a longer commitment, bringing your ex back for Christmas is an easier way to deal with your family’s constant questions than downing numerous glasses of wine.”

Professor Nail suggests looking back at those old screenshots and stalking your former significant other’s Twitter favorites, in order to see what their idea of a relationship goal looks like.

If you are unable to make yourself look like Zac Efron or Carrie Underwood while also studying for finals in the short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas break, the easiest way to get your ex back is to bribe them with the things that they like best. “This could be free food, free alcohol, cheesy compliments, or good morning texts,” said Professor Nail.

The truth is that you know your ex best, and the chance of finding a new soulmate over the next two weeks of studying for finals while almost everyone, including yourself, looks like death incarnate is slim.

Professor Nail recommends starting slow with a simple “Hey, how have you been!” or a quick “I heard [insert your relationship song here] on the radio and thought of you. Hope everything is going well” text. Eventually, this should lead to a meal or “watching Netflix” depending on how receptive your ex is.

In fact, it may be possible to create an agenda of holiday events for which you will need each other to be present, and a payment of sorts can be arranged for each event. Who knows, maybe you will rekindle the flame and kiss your ex under the mistletoe.

Because if all else fails, the Mugdown suggests simply sitting down with your ex over a bowl of queso and attacking the issue head on. Being pestered about your relationship status at family meals is a problem that plagues many, and we know that your ex is facing the same dilemma.
