Re: “Food​ ​Insecurity

The government should feed these students just like the homeless. The parents are paying $25,000 for tuition each year and there just isn't anything left to buy food with. This is such an unfair country.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

"Coffee is a vital part of college life." Interesting thesis. I got through college without drinking a single cup, and so can anyone else. If coffee were a necessary beverage, coffee plants would grow naturally in the local area.
The article indicates a lack of integrity on the part of the writer, mixing some serious and good information with some that is stupid and irresponsible. Is the Weekly so hard up for cash that they can't afford to hire a good writer?

Re: “Mensa mini-quiz

1. Palomino is a type of horse / breed and a color. It was classified as a horse type BEFORE the genetic component was understood. Yes, different breeds can have a tan color However, Palomino is still considered a "breed." Look it up on petbreeds.com

2. YES. Questions that are knowledge based are absurd. No MENSA test would quantify a person's intelligence quotient using questions that would appear on Jeopardy, or in Trivial Pursuit. The questions are designed to test your ability to see patterns where most people see randomness; to problem solve, etc.

3. How is the last question a test of intelligence? Really, do highly intelligent people know that "incorrectly" is spelled incorrectly by smart people? My IQ is over 170 and I didn't know that. Why would I? Is there a cutesy clue in the question itself, like a "wink, wink" isn't this cute?

The best way to go out and drink under $15? Go to the grocery store. Stay home.

Thank you Bad Advice. This article is loaded with nonsense. They need to stop acting like Ryan Lochte.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

I'm a bartender on Fourth Avenue, and I can assure you none of us worth our salt is going to serve someone five drinks within fifteen minutes. It's irresponsible to encourage students to binge drink as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Also, if you're too broke to tip, you're too broke to go out.
