Editor’s Note: Eagle Rants Editor is going on hiatus and will be replaced by a new Eagle Rants Editor tomorrow.
Thanks for reading!
•My roommate and I just peed in harmony.
•@”If you don’t like her, then drop the class (it is an elective after all), and let the rest of us proceed with learning.” Actually ‘sex, gender, and culture’ is a gen ed. Nice try though. And people are not mad at her for breastfeeding. They are mad at her for posting a nasty rant on the internet that targeted specific AU students, trashed AU, and made her look like an extremely immature crazy person (thus hurting our university’s reputation). Try and keep up.
•I don’t know you Heather, but you are an inspiration to us future journalists. Don’t let Adrienne Pine’s vindictive, attention-seeking, illogical blabbering keep you from feeling bad or doing a fantastic job at your job as an Eagle writer. You rock.
•@kid creating AU dating site : OMG I love you! This has been needed for SO long and no one was willing/able to step up.
•Eagle: Can you consult with the administration and let us students know: Is it against university for professors to identify specific AU students on the internet in a negative light? Are Eagle writers considered public figures and thus immune to such a university policy? Even if they are considered public figures, does this apply to not only their published writing but also their conversations, emails, and actions? We students would like to know these answers.
•Does anyone else find it hilarious that Adrienne Pine would complain about the Eagle publishing her breastfeeding story by saying the Eagle just wanted a sexy headline grabbing story, and then Prof Pine publishes a story called “Exposing My Breasts on the Internet”. Lol I can’t think of a more pathetic attempt at a sexy headline grabbing title. I really don’t think she understands the concept of irony.
•If Adrienne Pine had bothered to read the Alex Knepper article she linked to in her expose of her own stupidity, she would have seen that Knepper’s article (which she accused of being anti-woman) was actually extremely pro-woman. Knepper argues that women should not be held to a lower standard than men when drunk. Doing so infantilizes women and tells them they are too dumb to be responsible for their behavior when drunk, while men are fully responsible for any drunk behavior and thus labeled date rapers after drunk sex (even when the woman was equally drunk).
•Women can’t have equality in all the good ways and then refuse equality for all the bad things. Drunk sex does not automatically equal date rape. Take responsibility for your sexual behavior get out of the risky realm of casual sex.
•I just want a world where alarm clocks ring in the morning, where I can drive a car that is the wrong color for an alarmingly fast sports car, where I can cease to exist because of an alternate universe that my mind has created, and where, most importantly, there are MORE HARUKI MURAKAMI FANS on AU’s campus!
•To the Haruki Murakami reader: I love his books too! My favorite’s Norwegian Wood (followed by Kafka on the Shore), what’s yours?
•@Hughes 5 girls who like to cuddle: There’s at least one guy on Hughes 3 who likes to cuddle as well. Come one down sometime
•Can the Eagle editors update on whether university administration is aware of Adrienne (yeah, that’s right, I’m not even calling you MS Pine)‘s disgusting online temper tantrum? If the university supports her behavior and allows her to remain a professor, then I will have officially lost all faith in this place. I’m actually asking for an answer because I figured you guys would probably know.
•So are you going to tell us about our Comptroller? Or just be a lackluster college newspaper with their head in their ass, tease the story on twitter and post no story a week later?
•I spontaneously break out crazy gangsta dance moves and blast dirty music when my roommate is gone… I’m the awkward quiet person.
•I want the library to carry print editions of The New York Review of Books.
•True Life: I’m addicted to gay sex. I’m a straight woman… :O
•When and what is going to be in the former McDonalds?!?!? Sushi place please??!?! lol
•to die would be an awfully big adventure
•No one cares about the top 30 reasons you are glad you have POTS.
•HELP HELP where are the lesbians on this campus?!?
•Times passes relentlessly, endlessly. Nothing else is as constant as the eternal forward march of time. Tick tock mocks the clock. The only irrefutable truth is death. It’s not sad… it’s just brutal.
•@Avengers. I am for Thor/Loki because I’m all for hot men hooking up (and they’re not blood brothers, so it’s not squicky). Personally, I’d just like to see an all male Avengers orgy…
•Have y’all seen what the Eagle reporter did? Maybe they should train their reporters in professionalism before sending them into the world.
•Future employers have the right to learn how the “reporters” at the eagle handle themselves in the workplace. Lack of respect and unprofessionality (yeah, that’s not a word, I don’t care) are something they have the right to know. Would you want a reporter who makes your paper look bad?
•@ I can’t understand my Stats professor: You’ve got a long time ahead of you. I swear, everyone in the Stats department is impossible to understand. I’m shocked now that I’m at a different school to have a Stats prof who actually has no accent.
•Am I the only one who gets annoyed by the Dr Pepper “I’m One of a Kind” ads? How does drinking a major soft drink brand and wearing a red shirt saying “I’m One of A Kind” amidst a sea of dozens of other people ALL WEARING THE SAME SHIRT make you an individual? We’re sticking it to the Man!!!... by buying into a major corporate enterprise?
I should really just relax- why does this bother me so much.
•Dear Adrienne Pine-
You didn’t want this breastfeeding incident to pop up when future bosses googled your name, so your plan was to post all the details on an exposee which would piss off students and cause them to post Eagle Rants about you using your full name? If you just let the Eagle post the story, they wouldn’t have used your name. But whatever, it’s your career
•Oh, and I’m also sure that the reporters and editors won’t get any professional backlash for you using their names because they were doing their F***ING JOBS. Good job Eagle
•You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice. If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice!
•Look, it is not that hard to handle packages. It should not be a challenge to pick my package. I have tried three times now to pick up one package. I’ve been lied to( which I do not enjoy) and they are just wasting my time. First of all, I should not half to walk half way around campus to pick up my mail and I’m paying how much to go to school here? Just bring my mail to my building, it’s not that hard. If you can’t handle the system, don’t do it at all.
•I don’t have the typical AU-sorority-or-vegan-ballerina-girl body type, and I don’t have time to dress with the latest trends because I have stuff to do, not to mention not enough money to pay for all of those trendy clothes and makeup. And sometimes (a lot of times), it makes me doubt whether I’m attractive or capable of attracting any male attention whatsoever. Annnnnd, it sucks.
•I can’t believe I ever liked you. We’re such opposites.
•I just realized around the time of this summer that I came from a broken, messed up childhood situation/home, in which the emotional abuse was SO skillfully executed that I legitimately thought it was normal and/or my own fault until I was twenty years old.
And I’m dealing with it.
•Even these absurd rains
cannot keep me from you babe
Well, from your Facebook
