BU TweetCreep: February 9th – February 15th

Happy belated Valentine’s Day, or Lonely Day, or whatever you call it. I for one am glad it’s over. You can’t win with Valentine’s Day. Either you’re lonely and suddenly that big box of M&Ms you bought to eat by yourself is supposed to be passed out in individual portions to friends you can’t seem to find, or you’ve got a significant other and you’re not allowed to be happy about it in front of the “lonelies.”

So good riddance! I’m looking forward to this weekend. Sunday, I’ll be going down to D.C. to join the Forward on Climate Rally to protest the Keystone XL pipeline and support political will for climate change.  It’ll be me and tens of thousands of other people who believe Al Gore invented the Internet.

Enough about me. It’s Valentine’s week, I think it’s time we talk about us:

Thanks for the tip, because I certainly wasn’t going to take Valentine’s advice from the BU Hockey team.

Boozing? Bad? No…

I’m pretty sure it’s Valentine’s Day that’s responsible for boozing. That or the excellent, refined taste of Bud Light.

This actually surprised me because I was pretty sure that boozing in Allston was brought to us by Coors Light and fraternities. (Except frats don’t haze.)

It’s also a great way to cope with disease.

Taser Shock!

To be fair, the officer only tasered the kid in response to the kid saying, “Nah uh! I have a force field!”

We all learned something about the importance of the word “imaginary” in “imaginary force field” that day.

That’s right people, do you really think the cops would taser a student surrounded by water??? Yet this rumor blew up. I guess all you have to do is misinterpret a video and then the BU public will go crazy about it. For example, did you know that this slow loris is in fact not being tickled, but accepting death while humans laugh at him?

Today Show Take Over!

Why don’t people wake up at 6:30 to do something more important? Like write their senator or use the shower on the floors below me so that I have water pressure when I try to shower?

About Ari Stern

I am a BA/MA student at Boston University studying Energy and Environmental Analysis. When not thinking about the Earth's impending doom, I like to distract myself with comedy. I am the president/director of Boston University's improv group Liquid Fun. Every Saturday night, I perform as a cast member of Improv Boston's Face Off. I also won BU's funniest student viewers choice in 2010 and still tell people about it (at least I'm not as bad as PBR who still boasts about their blue ribbon from 1893). Finally, if you love puppies, we've got something in common.
