Porn bars? They're like granolla bars, only a bit more salty? Or is it like if you're out and don't have time to stream porn you just grab a bar and go?

The latter. You never know when you might need a quick dash of porn to spice up your day (oh wait that's what a smartphone is for)

The thing about porn in dive bars, it's that its never there to actually be viewed. It's there to set the environment, for some reason. I can't imagine how disturbed I'd be if I saw someone paying active attention to it.

Yeah, that would be gross. At the very most its distracting.

One time I was in a bar that was playing blowup doll on blowup doll porn. There was a blowup doll priest and a blowup doll schoolgirl. I was in awe of human ingenuity.

Are you sure it wasn't just a Japanese gameshow?

can anyone here who used to hang out in the NYU thread tell me how it got to be twice as big as our now flourishing Columbia Class of 2017 thread? I mean, what so damn important over there that it needs over 100 pages? (probably all armchair apartment hunters is my theory) can't wait for a year from now when we'll be stalking the Columbia Class of 2018 thread fresh meat chuckling about how much cooler we were...with our talk of cider and blasphemous sex acts performed by inflatable dolls.

Does the financial aid office ever respond to students? Called and email several times since Feb. Never got a response. It's frustrating.

I've been pretty successful on calling them. Emails typically don't get a response but every time I've called them between 9-5 EST I've gotten a helpful person on the other end. Must be either your bad luck on calling times or my good luck on my calling times?


Yup, same here, I've had no problem getting through on the phone. I called early in the morning each time. Try calling around 9:15ish

I can definitely relate. Financial aid has responded to me, although they've never been helpful. I've had similar issues with the admissions office as well. The assistant on the phone is super weird/not very nice and the office doesn't respond. It's extremely frustrating and unfair.

Same. I think it was even the same person for multiple calls. Made me feel like framily.
