What time do the buses stop running? How do you all get home when you drink? Are cabs expensive?


Where are you living? I think most people walk home, but most people live within walking distance of campus (and thus the bars). I wanna say the Michigan buses run til 2 or 2:30, but AATA I'm not sure. And I think there's a free cab service, night-ride or something, that gives you a limited number of nighttime rides per year...


Harbor House, down by the mall.

RE parking, Harbor House gives you a free underground spot with your apartment. There is a parking search thing on one of the school's housing sites. A month ago when I looked, there were some for $50-75 but they may all be gone.

Thanks, but I've actually got a place already, now I'm just trying to find a decently close spot to park my car.

Here it's coke no matter what it is... hahah


I think if you ask for a Pepsi (or Sprite or Mountain Dew or w/e) by calling it a "Coke," people would give even weirder looks than if you asked for a soda.

BTW, how does that work, asking for something else by saying coke?


"Do you want a coke?"

"Yeah, can you hand me that diet Dr. Pepper?"

this really isnt any worse than calling everything pop. Also, in Ann Arbor if you say you want "tea".... the person will ask you what variety. In the south, if you want "tea", you know whats coming.

It just seems odd to ask for one thing by saying the brand name of a different variety

:lol:

I was wondering when someone might raise other instances of the same phenomenon. In defense of starstruck, though, does anyone know the brand names of other "Q-tips," "Kleenex," or "Band-aids," much less generic words for the same kinds of things they represent (other than "tissues" for Kleenex)? :oops:

Ha! I was thinking the same thing--didn't realize it was Emeril in the photo until I looked more closely after thinking that nobody else walks around yelling, "Bam!"

LOLz. True enough. Do people still say "xerox," though? Seems like "xeroxing" might have been an 80s thing. :wink:

Well for tissues, a lot of people use "Puffs" and "Scott". Q-tips and brand-aids are pretty much it I guess.

Coke controls about 40-45% of the total soft drink market. Kleenex has about a 60% share in tissues. I guess there's enough of a gap there for more people to ask for Kleenex than Coke as a generic product. Considering Pepsi has about a 35% share of the market, using pop or soda makes a lot of sense, especially since cola only accounts for about 60-70% of the total industry. However, Pepsi focuses on sales through retail while Coke dominates in fountain drink sales 65% to 21%. So, if you're out a restaurant and would like a fountain drink, it makes as much sense to ask for a coke as asking for a kleenex at home.

So anyway, I think we're going to law school in Michigan or something.

Fellow Michigan 0Ls Rate My winter preparedness on a scale from 1-10!!

I grew up in Miami and I live in Atlanta. To me, 2 Inches of snow is an epic blizzard that requires school to be canceled for a minimum of 4 days.

I own one fleece (which I thought was a jacket until it was explained to me that it was clearly a fleece)

I have no gloves, and I have no beanie/toboggan/earmuffs.

I don't own a sweatshirt or sweatpants. I have no snow boots.

What are long-johns??

To me, anything below 40 degrees is too cold to be outside.

How am I doing so far??

Haha you're in for a bit of a shock. You don't even own a sweatshirt?? Personally, I'm investing in one of these http://images.usoutdoorstore.com/usoutdoorstore/products/full/tnf_aajg_blk_08.jpg

No worries. Enduring the cold season is more about will power than winter gear. 8)
