•All in favor of using eagle rants as a new likealittle?
•Aw man I wrote such an awesome rant on August 31st and now it’s lost forever! Damn you Internet
•. . .I know it shouldn’t matter, and I know I shouldn’t care. . . but I think my roomate is a closet republican. . .and I think she’s trying to tell me. . .but I don’t want to know. I am all about the don’t ask don’t tell policy when it comes to discussing political parties because it changes how I see people!!! If she’s a republican though. . .omfg IM NOT EVEN A DEMOCRAT okay, but like still :S
•I really like the new eagle rants submission format! Its so much easier to rant several times in a row #ijusthavealotoffeelingsokay
•MICHELLE OBAMA IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL
•@might as well get the university to stop selling anything that comes in a plastic bag: don’t say that. You’ll give the liberal hippies more ideas
•I don’t think the Eagle has to do *anything* to make it up to us. They don’t owe us anything.
•Welcome to sudden realization that you’re WAY out of her league, population: me….crap
•I WANT PLASTIC BAGS IN THE POTOMAC…said nobody ever
•To the people who wrote the editorial about plastic bags at AU. I am sorry you were slightly inconvenienced in an effort to reduce waste. Don’t let your first world problems show too much.
With the implementation of bag fees and plastic bag bans the Anacostia River has seen a 66% reduction in plastic bag waste. Just so you know.
•That time people forgot that the plastic bag ban was a student initiative.
•re: taylor swift rant—
i can’t tell if that’s good or bad…
•anyone see the strippers in leonard….nuff said
•@“It’s only the second day of the second week of classes. Someone shoot me.”
•Idk what your problem is but I love all my classes. Maybe you should switch your major?
•I’ve never felt like I belonged as much as I do now that I’m at AU. Awwww!
•calling all smart/nerdy/cuddly boys: what qualities do you find attractive in girls? and how can I improve my chances of getting with you?
•I keep hoping to run into you on campus.
•#That awkward moment when you finally decide to put the moves on her and you discover she has a boyfriend now. FML.
•To the person who is thinking about buying a scale: I got one at Linens N Things. They don’t exist anymore, but you could look at Target.
•Youngings should stop using Eagle Rants as their personal diary.
•The Eagle needs to find some actual news to report. And no, a professor breastfeeding is not news. It’s life.
•Is my freshman showing?
•What Professor Pine published on the Internet is BEYOND INAPPROPRIATE. To speak that way about students is absolutely disgusting, and she should be fired immediately. She released students’ personal information, and wrote an idiotic and juvenile tirade. As a student, I’m so deeply offended by this professor’s choice to slander students.
•To the Eagle: Well done. Don’t back down. You’re right, and people with any ounce of common sense know that. Sue for defamation, and then file formal complaints with the school. This woman needs to be stopped.
•@ “Unless you want to see The Hunger Games: Girls edition”
No, I want “The Hunger Games: Home edition” where I eat 4 pounds of Chipolte bowls and then gaze into the gaping black hole of my belly button for signs of life. College is fun! Amirite?
•As an AbroadRanter, lemme just say… I can tell who the freshies are. Silly Freshies.
•Rather than give you the illusion of free choice, I will take the liberty of choosing for you.
•Sooo breastfeeding is just a natural biological necessity, huh? So is procreation. This could turn out to be a fun class after all if the students get to participate…
•Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong here at all. Not as if it’s the wrong school for me, just as if I’ll never fit in and find my place. I just don’t belong at all.
•Hey Eagle eds, please go full steam ahead with that breastfeeding story, don’t let that feminazi tell you what to publish! Although maybe put a more professional reporter on it next time.—Big Fan
•Does the Eagle have any self-control? Stop ‘reporting the controversy.’ A professor breast-feeding in class is not a story. Period.
•I’m one of the girls who “gets all dressed up to get to frat parties,” and A) I don’t get ignored often, but B) When I am being ignored, I’m perfectly fine with chilling with my girlfriends in a corner, or dancing with my girls/by myself. I just like being around loud music, lots of people, things happening but not really happening… And I like to dress up for it. Worry about yourself. Us girls being “ignored” are fine.
•Am I the only one in the world with a deep love of Haruki Murakami’s writing?
•AU is so green that soon we’re going to have to squat-poop into open trenches on the quad to save water in the toilets. I’d be a good squat-pooper. I’m really comfortable with my body and I have great hip flexibility.
•@The person with insomnia: I have some trouble sleeping too, so I have some thoughts. You might have too much or too little light in your room. The temperature might be too hot or too cold. Your pajamas and/or sheets might be getting too old and/or dirty (seriously). Your diet might be keeping you up, especially if you consume too much caffeine or sugar. You might not be getting enough exercise. You might be sleeping too late into the morning.
If all else fails, you just might not need as much sleep as you thought. Good luck !
•use computers responsibly.
•I want to get back together with you. There, I said it. Your turn?
•This whole breastfeeding thing is just obnoxious. Although the Eagle could have handled it better, the professor was pretty rude and holier-than-thou. I agree that it’s not news, and I wasn’t in the classroom, but I do understand that some people might have been uncomfortable. Perhaps she could have used a blanket to cover up?
•I would like to find whoever came up with the new campus bookstore online ordering system and shove a cactus up their ass.
•after-graduation job confirmed, love my classes, only seeing the people i actually wanna see, and dating someone who can actually hold my attention. get at me.
•I was about to sex with my gf for the frist time. She takes one look at my wick says “i aint touchin tht - its like a BABY CARROT. LOL” Im so sad nd im criein. she says oh bby im sorry lemme cheer you up. she goes to the frij and gets sum ranch n puts it on my lil bby carrot wick. “Eat uyp bby!! LOL I got you sum ranch 4 your babby carrot!”
•I would love to stargaze on the qaud anyday!
•I can’t take the Eagle seriously anymore. Sorry guys.
•No offense, but your first kiss really doesn’t matter. At all.
•Who ever had the audacity of complaining about a professor breast feeding during class is ridiculous. I thought AU was better than that.
•Junior year sucks when most of your friends are abroad. womp womp.
•I’m only in college because my parents want me to be here. I’ve hated Freshman and Sophomore year, and I bet Junior year is going to be the same.
•I know some of the people that work at DSS and I don’t want to have to tell them that I have an emotional disability, because I’m afraid of what they will think.
•I know I’m in the minority buy I don’t care…Taylor Swift’s new song is awful. And her outfits in the music video are tacky. I wish she’s hire a new stylist because she looks like a dowdy grandmother. Also, who gave her permission to date a Kennedy? If she becomes a Kennedy before me, I’ll probably go on a rampage…
•I wish phonathon people would stop announcing they work for phonathon so proudly. You work for phonathon, get a real job.
•I don’t why I even bother to read people’s comments on the internet anymore. I used to do it because I felt that they at least deserved a listening too, but now I just wondering what makes some of these people think that throu ridiculous analogies and allegories they can somehow win an argument? And it’s not even an argument because it’s not a discussion, it’s just people shouting. Then I think about some of the things I heard today and realize its not just the Internet. Guess its time for nois canceling headphones.
•A certain old frat house will be dearly missed. Mainly its porch. Less so the brown.
•This campus needs a sushi bar!!!!!!
Thank you for reporting on things that create a buzz on campus. It’s your job. Some people are gonna insult you and tell you that you only should report “real news” but you’re a campus newspaper, and if it’s worth talking about on campus it’s worth writing about it on campus. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep reading.
The man in the middle
•So did that AU professor pretty much dig her own grave by posting that expose or what?
SIS AND WARD ARE TOO GODDAMN COLD
•Congratulations Eagle reporters, now instead of a professor’s name all over the internet for the harmless “incident” of feeding her sick infant, all of YOUR names will be all over the internet forever for your despicable journalism. Good luck ever getting a job in this industry again.
•Lol it’s like you guys think you’re a real newspaper
•To the Dav worker that just played Amazing Mazie from Seussical: You. Are. Awesome. That is all.
•Hey literature professor, you’ve really got to stop sharing your opinions about the armed forces in class. For one, your job is to teach your subject, not stray off into tangents about completely unrelated material. Second, you are obviously really ignorant about a lot of the world outside your life because your thoughts on the military are honestly some of the most insipid things I have ever heard. And finally, your complete disrespect for our men and women in uniform is disgusting and offensive. You embody everything that’s wrong with the stereotypical liberal professor.
•You are gorgeous, intoxicating, graceful, and amongst other things, a snazzy dresser and a cool kind of chick. Unfortunately, saying this in public is nigh impossible so yeeeah.
•Do only the student clubs that receive funding appear on he student club list? What if my friends and I want to start a club, but don’t need any funding?
•The more my face gets used as an ashtray the more I want them to ban smoking on campus.
LikeALittle Rage-Quit. Apparently, they decided to shut down their operations and now no-one can creepily post about how they like someone with (color) hair over in (location close to AU) and add details about it. I’ve done it before and, looking back, I see how pathetic that was.
•Hahahaha. Google docs is running the eagle rants now….
•Why is it that whenever I see someone after a long time from first meeting them I feel obligated to pretend I don’t remember who they are. Its frustrating. I see people I know on campus and I want to say hi and be friendly, but they look like they either don’t recognize me or couldn’t even be bothered. Where has the kindness gone? Why have we become so forgetful? Its frustrating.
•That awkward moment when you should be writing your article for The Eagle but instead are typing out an eagle rant.
•Obama. Y U NO STOP E-MAILING ME FOR $$$?! I am already voting for you. I’m a student. I have no money. I’d give you my soul if you could get elected and I could get a job with the white house out of that deal. But unfortunately, that can’t happen.
•Yes, because it’s only okay to think about helping out the health of the planet—something FAR bigger than yourself—if it’s convenient. Self-centered much? I’m SO glad to know that the world is in your hands.
•Professor Pine is one of the most unprofessional people at AU. It’s hard to maintain your reputation as a scholar when you’re making your classroom a distracting environment. If there’s a baby there, everyone is going to be watching it the whole time to make sure it doesn’t die. Whether it’s on your boobs or not is not the issue, and her diatribe only emphasizes a lack of professionalism.
•Why oh why must safeway be so far away? I love me my cheap food, but walking there from the shuttle takes forever and then even longer when you have to walk back carrying groceries.
•Ok it is 6 pm on August 6th and still no august 6th rants. I think the least you an do is put them up at a reasonable time.
•@mooching off the 1% of complainers, lololol
•all of these rants make me realize how naive and socially inept you people are. i wish i transferred when i had the chance. and if i see one more trust fund rant this year, i will go crazy.
•7:15 and no rants. BOOOOO!
•Fire professor pine! Publishing those emails and directly attacking the reporter is completely unprofessional
•What kind of man talks to the DEA?
•I just need a f*** buddy, is that too much to ask?
•WAIT WAIT WAIT @DatLibrarysheep is actually hilarious. Making a twitter for the AU library sheep is pure genious!
•This is an actual tweet from the AU library sheep..”@DatLibrarySheep Gurl don’t be sheepish I know you want all up on my fleece”
•So my best friend from home is a republican, but most of my AU and DC friends are democrats. So sometimes when I post something mildly political on FB, she will respond with her different point of view. That’s cool with me, but all my dem friends will comment and start an argument with her, and it gets ugly and unpleasant.
I should just stick to posting pictures of cats on fb…
