Overheard at FAU

9 Jun

Phi Kappa Psi for life, broseph.

“You know what they say, man: if you shoot for the moon and don’t reach it, you’ll still land among the stars.”

(Overheard upstairs in the Student Union. Might want to check your astronomy there, buddy…)

“I just got back from my trip to New York.”

“Oh, really, how was it? Did you see the Statue of Liberty?”

“Yeah, but I didn’t drive up to it.”

(Overheard in the gym. The other person didn’t seem to find anything wrong with this answer.)

Heard any other great things around campus? Post them in the comments!

This isn’t a joke

Normally, I post Photoshopped pictures here. This one is straight from my phone. In case you’re wondering, that’s a gas can sitting unattended in a shopping cart in the student apartments. The maintenance man associated with it was upstairs powerwashing.

Let’s run through the things wrong with this picture:

1. There’s a goddamn can full of gasoline sitting in the main walkway of an FAU dorm.

There are college kids around and some of them are probably drunk. Have you ever lit something on fire while drunk? It’s about 500 times more awesome than doing it sober.

2. It’s in a shopping cart.

Shopping carts don’t grow on trees. They grow in Publix entrances. I’d say the odds of this cart being legally obtained are the same as the odds that your next math professor will speak understandable English.

3. They were too lazy to push the thing 50 feet to an elevator

There’s an elevator about 50 feet away from all this. But no, pushing the cart and powerwasher there would have been too hard. If you look closely, you can see the hose dangling down from the second floor (it’s right next to your regret for deciding to stay close to home for college.)
