Not at all surprised to y'all acting like you are laid-back when TLSers are gunning hard ALL OVER the FB group.

Ironically, untar was the hardest to find despite being relatively blasé on privacy. Tekrul, hilariously, took under a minute despite his paranoia over outing himself.

General PSA: If anyone still thinks they can be anonymous on TLS, they're kidding themselves. I was shocked at how easy it was to figure out who a given person was, and all I had was Facebook and TLS. Imagine what adcomms can do when they have your whole file.


Oh, so you know who I am now then? That's kinda funny that I was the hardest, because as you said, I've made little effort to withhold important facts short of outright giving my identity. Add me then.

Were you really able to find Tekrul that easily? Maybe I'm missing some important info, but I spent like an hour today (I'm just sitting in front of a computer stuck here, nothing else I could do) and couldn't. Even checked Columbia's fencing roster, but they didn't list any male seniors.

May or may not also know who Tekrul is. Through... sources.

This is like playing Guess Who with Facebook instead of faces.

"Is your poster wearing glasses?" "Did your poster attend a public university?"

I've revealed oodles of personal information on TLS--without a doubt everything except my name. If anyone who actually tried couldn't figure out who I was, I'd seriously question your logical reasoning skills.

Side note: txdude has the most interesting personal story of any of y'all by far.

Seriously, I want to be FB friends with more of you. If you want, PM me your secret identity and we can begin our virtual friendships!

Ill be honest, I've made zero attempt at hiding my identity this whole cycle (accurate numbers, numerous references to my hometown and city of undergrad etc). I didn't really see a reason to make the effort --besides admitting to being drunk a few times there's not much on here that I would be embarrassed about if an adcomm saw it.

Also, you guys can feel free to friend request me since we're going to be classmates.

Edit: in case anyone thought it was difficult to figure me out: I posted in the Facebook group a while back and then referred directly to that post in TLS about a minute later. Come on guys.

ph's gunning is hilarious.

I count no fewer than four TLSers who have posted on those threads, and I'm willing to bet it's more.

Here comes another prediction: "ph is a gunner" becomes a running joke. Non-TLSers actually think I'm a gunner. I get a horrible gunner reputation. I have no friends and have no choice but to study all day, therefore becoming a gunner.

Same here, but before anything else happens, Tekrul and I are having an all-day 30 Rock marathon. Others are welcome to join, but there will be an entrance exam.

I will proudly submit to any 30 Rock test necessary, even a Page-Off.... though preferably with an emphasis on seasons 2 and 3 (since they are obviously the best and I've watched them a million times).

If I can sing Werewolf Bar Mitzvah all the way through without forgetting any lyrics, can I come? I don't remember her birth name. Something super jewy.

Boys becoming men...


And I have no idea what Jenna's birth name is (guess I shouldn't throw down with no limits), but I can definitely rap all of Werewolf Bar Mitzvah and belt out some Tennis Night in America, And I need to make sure I've read and seen Kevin Grisham's great hit The Rurrrr Jurrrrr before school starts.

I'm really impressed guys! Though I still say a Page-Off is in order. I just need to learn the 30 Rock theme song on the xylophone.

I've been known to belt out the Rural Juror song when drunk and sober and it often ends with me in tears. Man, that finale gets me every time.

EDIT: to learn the lyrics: http://www.vulture.com/2013/02/30-rock- ... yrics.html

Also, anyone know when season 7 is out on Netflix? The DVD came out on May, usually Netflix is soon after, but it hasn't happened yet.

Forms. Looots of forms. I know Dean's Certs were due already, and transcripts are basically due to be sent today as well. Immunization stuff. Loan shit if you're doing that.

I mean, these are soft deadlines, but, y'know.

No idea about season 7, but can we talk about Community? I'm rewatching the whole show currently.

This is crazy, but I think I'd put it ahead of Arrested Development on my all-time comedy list. Tough battle with Louie for the #1 spot.
